It is not known whether he got into a disagreement with someone who did not agree with his views on the Voice.
Police issued a statement saying that emergency services were called to Strathfield Railway Station about 4pm following reports of an assault.
Police were told two men – aged 79 and 66 – engaged in a physical altercation with the 79-year-old man subsequently treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics.
Lim’s lawyer Chris Murphy confirmed that his client had been hospitalised and was undergoing a CAT scan to assess a head injury and an eye bleed.
“Beautiful kindly Danny Lim has today suffered a hostile attack while peacefully supporting the Yes vote,” Murphy said.
This is not the first time that Lim’s peaceful protests have ended up less than peacefully.
Lim has also had other run-ins with authorities, including in 2015 when he was fined for offensive conduct for a vulgar sign criticising then prime minister Tony Abbott.
The fine was later quashed in court.
Lim moved to Australia from Malaysia in 1963 and served as a councillor on Strathfield Council from 2008 to 2012, campaigning on “openness, transparency, accountability and morality” and refusing to be paid while in office.
