A protester shouting at the Q&A panel on the Gold Coast last night was removed by security during a Live broadcast.
Students and young voters in the audience at The Arts Centre Gold Coast vented against Simon Birmingham, Minister for Education.
“I think you can see this is a University town, there’s a good deal of passion here in the audience,” host Tony Jones told Birmingham.
A group of protesters also gathered outside the venue targeting ABC for not representing their view on the panel and accusations producers adopted extreme vetting for audience tickets.
In 2014 a group of Sydney students interrupted a Live broadcast to protest against then-education minister Christopher Pyne.
