A refugee advocacy group says around 350 refugees from camps across Nauru staged a peaceful protest yesterday.
The Refugee Action Coalition says the protest follows an assault on refugees at Ananbare camp on Wednesday night.
It says two masked assailants, carrying a baseball bat, on a motorcycle and a machete, attacked two refugees outside the camp.
One refugee was struck across the back by the bat as they rode past.
Earlier this week two refugees were badly hurt when they were hit by a shower of rocks thrown by locals.
But the Nauru government dismissed the claims saying instead their speeding motorcycle crashed, and the two Iranians may have been under the influence of alcohol.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday a scheduled court appearance by protesters arrested on the 4th of March was adjourned until the 8th of April after the magistrate listed 11 people , while the prosecution listed only 10 - including children.
There is still no indication of what charges are being laid against those arrested.
