Several hundred people are taking part in a lockdown protest at the Wollongong lighthouse.
The protest is part of a broader movement, with protests also planned for Sydney and elsewhere for noon on Saturday.
Half of the Endeavour Drive loop has been closed by police, who have cars stationed at either end of the closure.
