About 500 protesters opposed to the changes brought a Sydney high street to a standstill.
The protesters, of different ethnic backgrounds and ages, marched together along Lakemba’s Haldon Street in Sydney’s southwest, holding banners condemning changes to the Racial Discrimination Act.
The proposed changes, announced by Attorney-General George Brandis in March, would see the stipulations in Section 18C replaced with provisions outlawing racial vilification and intimidation.
The march, organised by Labor, began with an Aboriginal smoking ceremony before being led off by a Chinese dance troupe and drummers, with hundreds of locals filing in behind.
The drums fell silent briefly as the march passed Lakemba Uniting Church, where a service was being held.
