Thousands take part in Invasion Day rally through Brisbane’s CBD
Thousands have taken to the streets of Brisbane to march in an Invasion Day protest, calling for the date of Australia Day to be changed.
Protesters joined Indigenous elders and gave emotional speeches before they marched from Queens Gardens.
It’s estimated more than 6,000 people turned out.
Acting Chief Superintendent Chris Stream told Scott Emerson there was only one arrest and three people were given move on directions, who were involved in a counter protest.
He said the organisers complied with the COVID-safe plan and said the behaviour was excellent.
“We are very pleased with the conduct of the protest.”
