Police have made more arrests after protesters stormed the Land Forces Defence Equipment Expo at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Nine News reporter Rebeka Powell told Scott Emerson roughly 25 of the protesters gained access to the expo today.

“[They] had climbed a military tank on display, one protester bike locked himself to it, and other activists glued their hands to the ground.”

Around 60 people from Disrupt Land Forces protested the exposition yesterday, which is showcasing warfare equipment and technology.

Assistant Minister for Defence Andrew Hastie told Neil Breen while people have a right to protest, “what we saw yesterday was a disgrace”.

“Service personnel in uniform, defence industry people being harassed by these people, fake blood being poured on the ground.

“It really was a disgrace.

“These ratbags showed no respect and that’s why I condemn it.”
