Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne: antifascist events

Sydney, Saturday July 26
11am-1pm, Woolworths, Illawarra Rd Marrickville

Racist scum are trying to intimidate & drive out religious minorities from Marrickville, while promoting white nationalism.
They have decided to target the Woolworths (Illawarra Road) for the grievous crime of wishing its customers ‘Happy Ramadan’.
We are standing up against these hateful people to let them know their views are not welcome.

Sydney, Saturday July 26
1pm, IKEA, Princess Highway, Tempe

The extreme right wing Australia First Party are holding a public forum at 1:30 on the 26th July, at their Tempe headquarters. They are Australia’s most notorious and prominent Neo Nazi sect with a violent agenda. They will be operating in conjunction with the fascist Greek organisation, Golden Dawn. Their forum is titled ‘End the Ethnic Cleansing of Australians from our Education Institutions’.
This is targeting all foreign influence & presence in Australia, with an exclusively euro-centric view.
We need to send a clear message to these groups that they are not welcome.
Attendance is paramount to make our opposition to a divided community known.
We are meeting underneath the IKEA clock (730 princes highway, Tempe) on Princes Highway, at 1pm, and from there marching to the AFP bunker down the road.

Adelaide, Sunday 27 July
The Adelaide franchise of the Patriots Defence League (a splinter of the Australian Defence League) is planning on holding a BBQ at Bonython Park/Tulya Wodli. Joining the Patriots will be some anti-fascists:
Racists are organising a recruitment BBQ to create a network of fascists in SA. We’re organising a counter-meeting on the same day where people who are motivated by inclusiveness and compassion can meet, share food, listen to music and participate in a group discussion on how to tackle issues relating to racial division in SA. Bring friends and confront hatred with humanity.
