Hundreds of supporters met at the Sydney Police Station on Sunday to protest against the 74-year-old, best known for his social and political sandwich boards.
Supporters join forces and draw consequences against those who have committed the arrest, causing Mr Lim to be bloated and bruised.
The Sydney personality is now planning to take legal action against the three police officers involved in the attack, reported The Sydney Morning Herald.
During the protest on Sunday, Mr. Lim said he did not blame the entire police because he spoke to the 300-strong crowd with a trademark sandwichboard in the pipeline.
Thank you to the police that they are here, it is not their fault – they are just civil servants, & # 39; he said to more than a dozen officers who kept the crowds at a distance.
& # 39; This (WHY CVN & # 39; T?) Sign means peace for me, and we must be nice and smart, that is our greatest asset. & # 39;
The only race in Australia is the human race – let people like Pauline Hanson not divide us. & # 39;
Organizer Max Russell told Daily Mail Australia that the meeting was intended to show Mr. Lim the diversity and presence of his supporters from around the city.
& # 39; The video that everyone saw was really graphic and emphasized a lot, & # 39; he said.
What we wanted to do here was to remind people that we are talking about a 74-year-old man who does nothing he has not done before. & # 39;
Spectators said that Lim was confronted by the police with a controversial sign with many claiming officers who & # 39; rough & # 39; and & # 39; aggressive & # 39; and caused injuries (see above)
Mr. Lim is known in Sydney because of his plates with sandwich plates and images of his arrest have gone viral on Friday
Spectators who witnessed Friday's arrest said that Mr. Lim was facing the police on a controversial board with many claiming officers who & # 39; rough & # 39; and & # 39; aggressive & # 39; goods.
Photo's on social media have shown that Lim has sporting bloody and bruised arms, allegedly coming from his confrontation with the officers.
Niki Anstiss, who filmed the meeting, labeled the arrest of Friday as "disgusting" and is present among several witnesses to lodge formal complaints about the officers' behavior.
But she also added that the police looked at Mr. Lim and shouted before anyone tore the board off his back, and the other two forced him into handcuffs.
& # 39; My problem is the cruelty to deal with him with so much violence, she said to AAP.
& # 39; He screamed and cried & # 39; do not take my sign & # 39;. & # 39;
When two officers led the Lim in cuffs to a police bus, Mrs. Anstiss saw a third officer take the lead of the little dog Smarty of the activist and followed faster than the dog could walk.

Members of the audience were surprised when the police arrived, with their allegedly crude actions that caused Mr. Lim to scream: & # 39; Please, help & # 39;
& # 39; There was a woman needed to tell the agent & # 39; you have to pick up the dog, so they stop it. & # 39;
Christina Halm said that a maximum of 30 people stopped on their tracks and were all startled, gasping and crying to what we saw & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I saw that police officers used a totally unnecessary and unacceptable amount of force to arrest Danny for wearing a humorous sign, "she posted on Facebook.
A NSW Police spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia on Friday: "Officers spoke to a 74-year-old man and gave him a go-around."
& # 39; The man repeatedly refused to respond to the switch and became aggressive towards the police.
The man was then detained and issued a Criminal Infringement Notice for offensive behavior and released a short time later. & # 39;
Footage made from the altercation of a nearby office shows two officers pushing Mr Lim away from the area, as his shouts from & # 39; no & # 39; echo through the new development.
A third stops and seems to get the dog from Mr Lim, Smarty.
Security hired in Barrangaroo were reportedly aware of Mr. Lim's presence and not concerned about the
