The Rising Far Right

January 06, 2019

It's unfortunate to see the turn that our political climate has taken recently. Extremists openly performing Nazi salutes at mass rallies. Politicians using our parliament to promote hate and prejudice. Our nation's representatives picking on minorities and the powerless for their own political gain.

Unfortunately, this isn't a phenomena that's small or unique to Australia. Here and around the world, right-wing extremists are making a political artform out of hate, division and bigotry. It's vile and it warrants condemnation across the board from all political leaders on both sides of politics.

I will never stand idly by while hate groups spread racism and division in my community. Australians know that our diversity is our strength and we are only made richer and more prosperous because of those who have joined us from across the seas.

We need to stand together as Australians and firmly reject the hatred and bigotry spread by far right extremists like those we saw on St Kilda Beach.
