Rally Against Racism (Perth) - Say No to Reclaim Australia
Date: Sun 19 Jul, 12:00pm - Mon 20 Jul, 12:00am
Recently, rallies have been called throughout Australia by the racist group Reclaim Australia. These rallies have vilified Muslims and migrants, as well as people of other non-white backgrounds, claimed halal food supports terrorism, and called for a return to a White Australia policy. Reclaim Australia say they are not racist, however many of its supporters identify as neo-Nazis. These rallies angered many people who detest the racist and discriminatory treatment of Muslims and migrants. At a demonstration in Melbourne last month, Reclaim Australia were outnumbered 3:1 by anti-racist protesters, sending a very clear message that we will not tolerate hate speech and bigotry. This is a win, but we must keep it up. Reclaim Australia will be attempting to hold another rally on July 19 to promote their vile views. United Against Bigotry and Racism will be calling a counter-rally to show that wherever they attempt to voice their hate speech, people will be there to show them their racism is not welcome. Click 'attending' for information on the upcoming counter-rally and other events. Let’s make our voices louder than theirs - say no to Reclaim Australia. DATE: Sunday 19 July TIME: 12:00 LOCATION: Solidarity Park, Harvest Terrace, Perth, 6005 Organised by United Against Bigotry and Racism https://www.facebook.com/events/893952217313262/
