Baxter protesters prepare to march again
Protesters camped near the Baxter Detention Centre in South Australia's outback
say they plan to march to the centre again today.
There were ugly scenes yesterday when protesters clashed with police two
kilometres from the centre.
Police are blaming yesterday's confrontation on the lack of communication by
protesters with police and amongst themselves.

Camille Barbagallo from the group No One Is Illegal says the police road blocks
were unrealistic.

"The camp was always going to be difficult, I think that we've got the campsite
settled," she said.

Chief Superintendent Peter Mildren says the protesters need leadership to avert
future problems.

"Someone needs to step up and represent some authority, so that everyone knows
what they're doing, they were going off doing their own things, and nobody
quite knew what they were up to," he said.

Around 200 of the protesters marched to the centre last night.

Police say they will not hold them back, but there are restrictions as to how
close to the centre the will be allowed to go.

Immigration Minister Philip Ruddock says while everybody has the right to
express their views, many of the protesters are merely looking for trouble.
