Western Highway duplication protesters glue hands to railing at parliament

Parliament was halted yesterday afternoon with Western Highway protesters gluing their hands to railing, chanting and draping their banners in the building before they were removed by security.

The group were in the public gallery when the ruckus occurred - causing security to swiftly remove the protestors with one person on the Parliament floor shouting "we should chop her hands off".

Security forcibly removed the group that was chanting "listen to Djab Wurrung" including the woman who had glued her hands to the galleries railing.

Other attendees gasped as the womans glued hands were pulled from the railing and she was ejected with the rest of the group.
