Presumably taking off from the publicity gained by the English Defence League, right-wingers in Australia have launched an "Australian Defence League".
They have called a rally on 9 April on the lines below. The counter-demonstration is:
Rally Against Racism
Friday 9 April at 12 noon
Flinders Street station, Melbourne
"A fascist group has called a rally in Melbourne against immigrants and against Islam. We have endorsed a peaceful rally that is happening in the same day and place to stop the racists. Come to this rally.
"Genuine unions and genuine labour movement organisations are asked to appoint marshals
"Please send your endorsement and your solidarity message to firstname.lastname@example.org".
The Australian Defence League publicity runs as follows:
Date: Friday, April 9, 2010
Time: 1:30pm – 4:30pm
Location: MELBOURNE, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA
Street: FLINDERS STREET STATION – PARLIMENT HOUSE SPRING ST
City/Town: Melbourne, Australia
MELBOURNE ACTION AGAINST IMMIGRATION AND ISLAM
WHO WANTS A WOMAN STONED TO DEATH FOR REPORTING RAPE?
WHO WANTS THEIR YOUNG DAUGHTERS CIRCUMSIZED BY DIRTY ARABIC BUTCHER?
WHO WANTS TO HAVE 4 WIVES (1 IS BAD ENOUGH HAHA)?
WHO WANTS THEIR 5 YEAR OLD SON LEARNING TO KILL PEOPLE?
WHO WANTS TO BE EXECUTED IN PUBLIC BECAUSE YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN ISLAM AND QU’RAN?
IF YOU ANSWERED NO THEN WHY WOULDN’T YOU BE THERE??
IT'S TIME TO STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS!!!!
NOTE: WE WILL ALSO BE RALLYING FOR FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION, THE RIGHT TO BE A MEMBER OF A CLUB THAT YOU CHOOSE, INCLUDING MOTORCYCLE CLUBS!!
LISTEN AUSSIES, ITS TIME TO HARDEN UP, CLOSE THE GATE, LOOK AFTER OUR OWN AND KEEP OUR COUNTRY AS OUR COUNTRY.
The rally has been endorsed, with debate, by the Australian Protectionist Party.
