Dozens of people have been protesting across Australia in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The marches were triggered by the death of African American George Floyd in police custody.
Nonetheless, protesters were also highlighting the mistreatment and marginalisation of Australia’s Aboriginal people.
Protesters were also on standby to against a ban in Sydney but it was reverse at the last minute by a court of appeal.
Rallies have also been organised in Brisbane, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide and elsewhere.
They have been held in high spirits with no reports of major unrest, although there were tense scenes later in the evening at Sydney’s Central Station.
