Mr Lim has recently been showing his support for the Voice to Parliament referendum.
His lawyer Chris Murphy said Mr Lim had been ‘peacefully supporting the Yes vote’ when he was allegedly attacked on Friday.
‘He has been hospitalised and is undergoing a CAT scan re a head injury with eye bleed,’ Mr Murphy tweeted, adding school children had been ‘happily’ watching him before he was ‘bashed’.
Mr Lim was hospitalised back in November after suffering head injuries during a shocking police arrest.
Footage captured the local campaigner being forced to the ground by two NSW Police officers in Sydney’s Queen Victoria Building, leaving him with a bloodied face and black eye.
Mr Lim suffered bleeding to the brain from the fall and had to use a walking stick for weeks after.
