A man has been charged with punching and kicking prominent and beloved Sydney activist Danny Lim during an alleged attack at an inner west train station.

Mr Lim, 79, is well known around Sydney for sporting sandwich boards and holding up signs promoting peace and positive messages.

He was hospitalised after he was allegedly assaulted at Strathfield Railway Station last Friday.

At the time he was campaigning for the Yes vote ahead of next month’s Voice referendum.
