March in March sees tens of thousands protest Abbott
THOUSANDS of Australians upset by a host of Abbott Government policies have marched in capital cities and regional towns, as the protest group March in March prepares to head to Parliament House on Monday.
The protests, born online through the March in March 2014 have given voice to various causes around the country.
Protestors bearing signs gathered in all capital cities except Canberra on Sunday, voicing their opposition to policies and government decisions on subjects as diverse as the Great Barrier Reef, asylum seekers and gay marriage.
Led by an online volunteer group which names only two organisers, a Craig Batty and Tim Jones, the group has proposed a "vote of no confidence" in the conservative federal government.
However, the protests came just a day after the conservative side of politics had a victory at the Tasmanian state election, and enjoyed a surge of voter support in the South Australian election.
The protest will move to the nation's capital on Monday, with supporters expected to march on Parliament House to bring their displeasure with the current policies coming from Canberra.
