The occupations in Melbourne and Sydney were violently smashed up by police on October 21 and 23, but in Brisbane, protesters continue to camp at Post Office Square, between Adelaide and Queen Sts, and Edward and Creek Sts, in Brisbane City.

A visitor from Occupy Brisbane told the Occupy Sydney general assembly on October 26 that, with various people coming through at different times and different protests organised, about 100 people were sleeping at the camp every night and the occupation was growing daily.

Below are a series of videos posted at www.occupybrisbane.org that show the occupation in action.
