POLITICAL TRAP: Gillard, Abbott hide from angry protesters

About 200 protesters trapped Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott in a Canberra restaurant before police arrived to clear a passage for the pair.

The protesters, from the nearby Aboriginal tent embassy, banged on the three glass sides of The Lobby restaurant chanting "shame" and "racist".

The embassy is celebrating a 40-year milestone with a three-day "Corroboree for Sovereignty" with thousands of indigenous Australians travelling to Canberra for the occasion.

Ms Gillard and Mr Abbott had just spoken at a ceremony for the inaugural national emergency medals.

At least 50 police, including the riot squad, were called to the scene shortly after 2.30pm (AEDT).

The two leaders, protected by police and security officers, escaped out a side door after about 20 minutes.

Diane Abbot (British MP): Anglos love playing divide and rule
David Cameron (British PM): Anglos caused most of the world's problems!

Abbott made some typically Howardian comment and Gillard gets dragged into a car by security.

But one expects something like that from the Howard-Hanson camp and Abbott is a chip off the old block, a racist baffoon.

About the Aborigines, how many of those protesting are 100% Aborigine? The people is almost driven to total extinction, most of them there are at best 50% Aborigine. That said, shame on white Australia for driving a people to extinction.

1. Abbot said that Aboriginal people had achieved so much and were held in such high respect that perhaps it was time to move on from the days of the tent embassy. I am no fan of Tony Abbot, but it was not seen as racist by the vast majority of Aboriginal leaders.
2. The Aboriginal population is growing at a faster rate than the non-Aboriginal population.
