Protestor Dunstan at sea to practice being a 'boat person'

NOTORIOUS protestor Graeme Dunstan has taken his mission for peace to the ocean.

The Rockhampton activist is reportedly at sea around Great Keppel Island, in a bid to experience life as a "boat person".

LISTEN: Graeme explains his motivations

 

The move follows a week of controversy for Graeme, after he vandalised an election campaign sign on Tuesday.

The sign, which read 'we'll keep the boats out', was placed near a Rockhampton highway alongside federal election campaign signs for Capricornia MP Michelle Landry.

Graeme had used black spray paint to write over the sign with 'this sign is sick'.

The Morning Bulletin was unable to reach Graeme for comment on the issue yesterday, and a voicemail left this morning reveals his absence was due to his nautical antics.

In it, he also explains why he was left disgusted and ashamed by the sign.

"I was just so angry," he said.

"I just had to do something. i just had to express my anger, and disgust, and the shame of being an Australian under this kind of leadership."
