VIDEO: Crowd remains peaceful at rally
ABOUT 70 people turned out to the Reclaim Australia Rally, held at a Rockhampton park on Saturday.
At the rally speakers discussed boycotting products with Halal certification and banning Sharia Law in Australia.
Last week, an organiser of the rally told The Morning Bulletin they expected about 200 people for the event.
Speaking to local media after the event, the organiser who has identified himself as Mark, said he was happy with the turnout for the rally.
He told media the rally was not about racism.
The event was part of a national campaign which saw rallies held in capital cities across the nation.
While the Rockhampton rally remained peaceful, crowds in other cities turned violent. Controversial politician Pauline Hanson spoke at the Brisbane rally, which saw 200 and 300 people gather in the city's CBD. In Melbourne, the event turned violent as 3000 people from opposing protest groups No Room for Racism and Reclaim Australia clashed.
