Race thugs to hijack Australia Day

A group of white supremacists is planning to hijack Australia Day celebrations in Camden – as part of a protest against a proposed new mosque in the area. The Daily Telegraph has learnt that the far-right Australia First Party, whose Sydney secretary is convicted race hate criminal Jim Saleam, is organising the rally.

The white nationalist party this week issued a call to supporters to attend the rally and distribute anti-Islamic material. “There is a public rally in Camden on the Moslem (sic) school question,” the bulletin stated. “We will need volunteers in the general south-western part of Sydney to attend and distribute materials.”

Typical of much material issued by the far-right lunatic fringe, it contained no further details because of fears of being confronted by anti-racism protesters.
