Canberra's March in March draws 500

ABOUT 500 people have protested a raft of Abbott government policies during the March in March parade in Canberra.

The crowd gathered out the front of Parliament House on Monday to voice their concerns about everything from asylum seekers to environmental issues and science.

Protesters carried signs emblazoned with phrases including: 'Climate Emergency', 'Refugee Cruelty: Close Manus and Nauru', and "Abbortt".

The gathering was the final protest from the March in March group, after protests around the country on Sunday.

Giving voice to so far more than 50,000 Australians concerned about the current government, the protests centred on delivering a "Vote of No Confidence in the Abbott Government" to parliament.

However, the public display also came after voters in Tasmania resoundingly elected a new Liberal  state  government, and as the result of Saturday's South Australian election hangs in the balance.

The March in March document was expected to be tabled in the House of Representatives by Greens MP Adam Bandt.
