WATCH: Protesters target PM

 

Protesters have targeted the Prime Minister for a second day in a row as he continues his visit to Queensland in support of LNP leader Deb Frecklington ahead of the state election.

Protesters this morning crowded the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre ahead of Scott Morrison's arrival, with his motorcade eventually rushing into the carpark to dodge them.

The Prime Minister is expected to join LNP leader Deb Frecklington today for a Leaders Lunch along with Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack and Deputy LNP Leader Tim Mander.

Refugee Solidarity Meanjin, who yesterday took responsibility for ambushing and vandalising Mr Morrison's car at UQ, have filmed themselves live on Facebook with flags and megaphones.

The protesters are chanting "free the refugees" in reference to the 120 refugees that have been detained in the Kangaroo Point Hotel.

There is also a strong union presence surrounding the entrance led by the ETU and United Workers.

ETU boss Peter Ong has been leading anti-LNP chants from the crowd of about 150 waving posters attacking the scaling back of JobKeeper.

Other signs say to "put the LNP last" while they are chanting "no to job cuts".
