According to a report on Indymedia, a clutch of a dozen or so bizarros belonging to the ‘Australian Protectionist Party’ were confronted by a group of locals in Newtown, Sydney, on Saturday. The APP rally, which was not publicly promoted, was presumably held in order to promote Darrin Hodges and Nick Folkes’ Senate campaign. NSW police soon arrived on the scene to reinforce the fascists, and eventually escorted them away from the Martin Luther King Jnr mural under which the small group had assembled. Members of the APP may or may not have lost some of their propaganda to the crowd, no arrests have been reported, and a fuller account may or may not be published at some point in the future.
A group of fascists and neo nazis were found in Newtown this afternoon. They gathered provocatively at the “I have a dream” mural wall in Newtown. A hundred or so people of the Newtown community spontaneously gathered and overwhelmed them with their powerful presence and voices. The people chanted “nazis out of Newtown, nazis off the planet”. They were physically confronted and forced to flee with their tail between their legs escorted by cops. The cops, the dogs of the bosses, of course attempted to protect them from the rage of the people, trying to arrest only those who have come to kick out racism, nationalism, and fascism. We will not let the fascists exist in our neighbourhoods.
COPS, PIGS, NAZIS, ALL THE BASTARDS WORK TOGETHER.
WITH SOLIDARITY AS OUR WEAPON WE DESTROY FASCISM.
