NSW police arrested around 6 protestors outside ABC studios last night as Pauline Hanson appeared on Q&A.
Media reports claim protestors for and against the One Nation leader numbered between 100 – 200 in Ultimo. Supporters were outnumbered by those chanting ‘Pauline Hanson has got to go.’
It is understood around half a dozen people were handcuffed and taken into police vans for the purpose of moving them away from the protest but no charges will be laid against them.
Crowds were moved on about 9.30pm as the show got underway.
On Q&A last night audience members told the panel Muslims were regularly the target of hate politics, driven by One Nation, including encountering protestors such as those outside the ABC studios.
