There’s a forum on Islamophobia in Melbourne on May 31. See also : Islamophobia is Racism, Yassir Morsi, Right Now, October 31, 2014. On May 2, an Antifascist Football Tournament /// Anti Racism World Cup took place in Sydney. Antifascist Action Sydney produced a YouTube vid to document it which you can watch here.

German hardcore band ‘Wolf Down’ have a new vid out called ‘Flames of Discontent’. It makes ref to the following activists:

1. Jalloh – rest in power
2. Romanos – jailed
3. Abu-Jamal – jailed
4. Giuliani – rest in power
5. Dener – rest in power
6. Palfreeman – jailed
7. Almgren – jailed

Oury Jalloh, a Sierre Leonean asylum seeker in Germany, died in a fire in police custody in Dessau in 2005, while his hands and feet were tied to a mattress.
Nikos Romanos, a Greek anarchist and convicted armed robber whose best friend aged 15, died in his arms after being shot by police. In 2014, he went on hunger strike for his right to an education, and won.
Mumia Abu-Jamal, an American political activist and journalist, currently serving life imprisonment without parole for murdering a police officer in Philadelphia in 1981.
Carlo Guiliani, an Italian anarchist and ‘anti-globalisation’ protester, shot and killed by police in Genoa, Italy at the G8 summit in 2001.
Halim Dener, a Kurdish activist shot and killed by German special police in Hannover in 1994, while putting up a poster for the ERNK, the National Front for the Liberation of Kurdistan.
Jock Palfreeman, an Australian anti-fascist unjustly sentenced to 20 years in maximum security prison for premeditated murder in Bulgaria after intervening to protect a Roma who was being attacked by neo-Nazis.
Joel Almgren, a Swedish anti-fascist, currently serving 6 and a half years in prison for attempted murder, after defending an anti-racist demonstration in Stockholm from a neo-Nazi attack.

Reclaim Australia is holding a second series of rallies on Saturday, July 18 (Melbourne) and Sunday, July 19 (everywhere else). Some folks are organising activities to counter the rallies in some way. See : Brisbane | Melbourne | Perth | Sydney.

Oddly, Telstra on the Fraser Coast has come out in support of Reclaiming Australia from The Muslims:

[Update (May 18, 2015)] :

Meanwhile, In Germany, are anti-Muslim terrorists the real threat? asks Rick Noack (The Washington Post, May 9, 2015).

About @ndy

I live in Melbourne, Australia. I like anarchy. I don't like nazis. I enjoy eating pizza and drinking beer. I barrack for the greatest football team on Earth: Collingwood Magpies. The 2019 premiership's a cakewalk for the good old Collingwood.

    Almgren stabbed a guy in the back. Twice. Self defence my ass.

  2. Dear Andy, you are manifestly a true dimwit mate. All evidence points reasonably to that conclusion. You rail and rant against your favorite chew-toy the “Fascists” and support your favorite love job the Muslims, either not realizing or simply ignoring how they regard and would reign [sic] you and your kind in, ‘with extreme prejudice’ if they ever had serious power. Let me educate you from the history of the Iranian early coup and later revolution …

    [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tudeh_Party_of_Iran]

    So Andy mate, whether it’s the CIA this way or the Islamists that way or both some other way the commies and anarchists ended up DEAD!

    Yet here you, a commie/anarchist/who-the-hell-knows-what, are hysterically supporting some wingnut “Islamophobia is Racism” […] even that is yet another nefarious attempt to even up the score and perhaps even win the game?

    So this is where it becomes either sadder than a poorly written Greek ragedy, or a very bad episode of Seinfeld, ie, you are attacking who? Ah yes, “The Fascists”. Well last time I checked the ‘fascists’ sent your mob off to a ‘rest spa’ called Dachau 50+ years ago and the Islamists sent you packing like ‘yesterday’. So a bloke might be forgiven for thinking you blokes are just mentally unhinged.

    Why don’t you attack the ‘selective policing’ that fails to arrest uber socialist-ratbag Anthony Main for assault at the Geert Wilders protest? (Hey by the way I was the LONE ‘supporter’ of Geert there among the 150 (very) odd socio/commie/anarchoflipflops and I managed to score an interview with Aussie TV and an international one with Dutch TV. Ah “the power of one”.)

    How about I rock up to your “Islamophobia is racism” flopostration and share a few words from the Quran at 750 Watts? I’ve stood alone among 25,000 unionists at Flinders St Station and displayed a contrary message [so] your puny event should be a breeze. Perhaps we can have a conversation and I can dispense some much needed healing for your rather fried gray matter (a quick shot of [Oxycontin], [vasopressin] and a dab of [serotonin] to brighten you up should do the trick. Injected into the top of the cranial cavity.)

    @Rebuild Australia:

    Briefly:

    1) I recognise the right of Australians and people of other nationalities to practice their religion.
    2) I’m familiar w the history of the Iranian revolution.
    3) I’ve taken note of the fact that a forum on Islamophobia is taking place in Melbourne on May 31. I remain an atheist.
    4) I imagine that if you attended the forum in order to disrupt it you would be asked to leave.

  4. Amazing Andy. When you look at the atrocious and criminal behavior of the Left and Anarchists at RECLAIM on April 4th your tone is almost unbelievable … so polite 🙂 and quite unlike the feral so called ‘anti racists’. Don’t worry I have no disrupt plans I’ve much better things to do with my time like make ‘capitalist pigdog money’. Well kinda. Maybe a few extra shekels. But I’ll be at the next Reclaim rally you can count on that. BUT …

    Mate, we have a secret WEAPON to use next time. But I’ll tell you… only you… we are inviting the London Student Union out to ‘organize’ the anti-racism counter rally. We figure they will slash the numbers by hmmm … 90% … as all white anti-racists are banned from attending. You cannot even begin to grasp how hilarious this is to me.

    Cheers. Hope to meet you one day so I can jolly well fix your poor deluded mind!

    To the best of my knowledge, nobody has been arrested or charged for any alleged offences committed on April 4.

    On the topic of anti-Muslim attacks in Germany, the ‘National Socialist Underground etc’., have you read this article by the German group Wildcat on the connections between the NSU and the German ‘deep state’? https://viewpointmag.com/2014/09/11/the-deep-state-germany-immigration-and-the-national-socialist-underground/
    Do you know if there’s any evidence of similar relationships here in Australia between ASIO and far-right groups? Or cultivation by the state of Islamists for that matter?
