A rally outside a ‘No’ campaign event brought out the “ugly side” of the ‘Yes’ campaign as protesters hurled abuse at people entering Adelaide’s convention centre, Englishheadline host Peta Credlin said.
About 1,000 people attended the Fair Australia’s No Campaign launch in Adelaide on Monday night, including Shadow Indigenous Affairs Minister Jacinta Price and Indigenous leader Warren Mundine.
Liberal Senator Alex Antic shared a short clip on social media of some protesters outside the venue shouting “racist pig” and “racist dog”.
South Australian Premier Peter Malinauskas denounced the verbal attacks directed at ‘No’ campaigners on the radio on Tuesday.
“For a constitutional change that the Prime Minister said was just a matter of being polite, there’s been plenty of ugliness – and nearly all of it has been from the Yes camp,” Ms Credlin said.
