The protest started at the bottom of Manners Mall outside McDonalds, where about 100 protesters gathered. The protesters moved down Manners Mall to outside Rebel Sports, where two people were arrested and violently dragged across to a Black Wagon. They appeared to be being arrested for obstructing traffic.

Later they were protesting against Westpac (or Westsuck as the protesters called them) for financing a uranium mine on Aboriginal land. They stood outside showing signs while some went inside and were arrested for trespassing onto private property.
