On Saturday April 4 the far right have organised a series of public rallies under the title of ‘Reclaim Australia’.
In Melbourne, organisers have elected to rally at
the Shrine of Remembrance Federation Square.
A counter-rally has been organised under the title of ‘Rally Against Racism’.
The last time the far right attempted to rally in Melbourne was in May 2011. A strong counter-mobilisation ensured that the event was effectively disrupted. (A prior rally in April 2010 was also unsuccessful, being reduced to a handful of drunken boneheads shouting racist abuse.)
Please help promote the counter-rally among your networks. Muslim-hating may — with the assistance of segments of government and media — have become a national/ist sport, but there’s no need to allow mass public expressions of such hatred and contempt to go unchallenged.
