Protesters are following the law on picket line

THE latest report of a broken window due to Curtis Island protesters was withdrawn on Tuesday, with police saying protesters have been following the law.

With between 50-400 protesters at any time down at the Port Curtis and Fishermans Wharf sites, Gladstone Police Inspector Darren Sommerville said there had been a complaint made on Tuesday morning about a window being smashed, but the victim was unable to confirm it as damage.

"He said it could have been a rock from a car. He didn't see anyone hit his car and the complaint was withdrawn."

Insp Sommerville said the protesters were breaking industrial laws, which weren't to do with the police, who were there to ensure safety.

"They were better this morning, and further back off the road, complying with our suggestions," Insp Sommerville said.

"We didn't observe them hit out at any vehicles."
