New South Wales police have charged a man with “punching and kicking” an activist

A man who allegedly punched and kicked Sydney activist Danny Lim at a train station in Sydney’s inner west has been charged with assault.

Lim, who is known for his sandwich signs, was campaigning for the Yes vote in the upcoming Voice referendum when he was allegedly attacked at Strathfield train station last Friday.

The 79-year-old was treated by paramedics before being taken to Concord Hospital and has since been released.

Police arrested a 66-year-old man at his home in Homebush West on Wednesday morning and charged him with assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

He was granted strict conditional bail and will appear at Burwood Local Court on October 5.

Following the alleged attack, Lim’s lawyer Chris Murphy took to social media and said his client underwent a CAT scan after suffering a head injury and a bleed in his eye.

“Beautiful, kind Danny Lim suffered a hostile attack today while peacefully supporting the Yes vote,” he wrote.

It’s not the first time Lim’s activism has ended anything but peacefully.
