Pro-Palestine protesters in Sydney attempted to block the arrival of a vessel owned by an Israeli trade company at Port Botany. The rally was joined by union members, with calls from the government to cancel the demonstration. The ship redirected upon hearing about the protest. In Melbourne, a burger shop was targeted by arsonists, leading to a clash between Israel and pro-Palestinian supporters. This resulted in arrests and the evacuation of a nearby synagogue. The organizers apologized to the local Jewish community for the disruption caused to their worship.
