Journalist Avi Yemini, the Australian Rebel News reporter, was released from custody following his arrest at Melbournes’ Invasion Day Rally while reporting and doing his job.
In a tweet, Mr Yemini wrote: “It’s been a long day, to say the least.” — while holding a glass of red wine.
“Tomorrow will be even longer after you get to see what actually happened at the ‘invasion day protest’. But for now, I’m celebrating the best country on the planet,” said Mr Yemini.
“Happy Australia Day to my fans and foes alike.”

On January 26 Mr Yemini was arrested and put into the back of a police vehicle for reporting.
“I am right now in the back of a police car. I have been arrested for what they allege is a breach of the peace,” said Yemini.
“The breach was I attended the so-called invasion day protest to report, to do my job. I came with my accredited national, federal accreditation from the Government. Both cameramen had the same accreditation from the federal government.”
Yemini plans to release a video on January 27 showing what exactly happened.
