Melbourne rally against racism
Several hundred people joined a rally against racism in Melbourne on April 3. Neo-nazis had threatened the rally but in the end were too scared to show up.
The rally was organised by the Campaign Against Racism & Fascism. Speakers included Viv Malo from First Nations Liberation, Nazir Yousafi from Victorian Afghan Associations Network and anti-racism campaigner, Jafri.
Jafri said: "We cannot be free if we are racially abused and discriminated against. We cannot be free if we are treated as second class citizens. We need to get rid of racism in society."
