It seems in recent months and weeks, that the momentum is building towards a clash between right and left. The increasing volume of video broadcast through social media is astonishing! Everything at this point seems to be building towards July 18 – a major rally on the steps of Parliament House in Melbourne at 1pm, organised by Reclaim Australia, and supported by United Patriots Front and other “patriotic” organisations around Australia who are (quote-unquote) putting aside their differences to unite against “extreme Islam.”
I want to take this opportunity to promote the counter-rally, as advertised by No Room for Racism on Facebook (check out their page!), which will be gathering at 10am, July 18. They are going to occupy the steps of Melbourne’s Parliament House and stand against the tide of racism, and if we are able to make it there (we’re based in Sydney at the moment) we would do it. Certainly, if the United Patriots Front can get on a bus and head down there, then maybe we can make it work.
For more information, see: Rally Against Racism
Here are the details for the anti-racist rallies around Australia:

May it be that we could make the presence of a non-racist Australia known at these events, and not let the vocal minority of the Right fill the air with their opinions. Beneath the Southern Cross, we stand! Contact us!
