Hundreds of people are expected to attend a community meeting south of Brisbane tonight to discuss a racial feud that has divided the community.

Riot police had to be called in to Douglas Street at Woodridge in Logan this week when Aborigines and Pacific Islanders clashed.

A peace deal was brokered between two feuding families on Tuesday night, but elders and leaders on both sides are concerned the trouble will not end.

One of the families involved took up a State Government offer yesterday and moved to the Gold Coast with the assistance of the Housing Department.

Politicians, community leaders, residents and police are planning to attend tonight's forum.

Residents say there have been smaller incidents in streets and shopping centres since the truce.

Aboriginal leader Paul Butterworth says it is important police keep the peace and apply the law evenly.

He says emotions are still raw, with officers serving people with notices to appear in court over incidents that happened during the four days of feuding.
