Elderly Sydney activist Danny Lim has been treated by ambulance officers and taken to hospital with facial injuries after an altercation at Sydney’s Strathfield station.
Lim, 79, has been spotted in recent days doing the rounds of Sydney train stations campaigning for the Yes campaign in the upcoming referendum on an Indigenous Voice to parliament.

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.

In December 2022, he was left with bleeding on the brain and hospitalised for two nights after being handcuffed and taken down by police outside Sydney’s Queen Victoria Building after he was accused of failing to comply with a move-on order.

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.
