    BAUER: "The marchers tricked police by moving in the wrong direction, but not for long."



    "Nearly all the original group was rounded up for arrest, but then more marchers left the Forum and police called for re-enforcements, About six busloads of police were waiting for just such an emergency."



    "Police arrested about 50 demonstrators after several violent scuffles."

    Background: Police arrested about 50 women after new street clashes in Brisbane on Monday (March 13) during a demonstration marking International Women's Year. The march was the latest protest against new State laws banning street marches and demonstrations, which was imposed by Queensland's Premier John Bjelke-Peterson. Hundreds have been arrested in demonstrations in recent weeks, the likes of which have not been seen since the Vietnam war. On Monday, there was more violence as the women marchers reached police cordons enforcing the ban. Here's a report from Graham Bauer of TVQ. Brisbane.
