Coalition against racism formed

PERTH — Up to 100 people attended a meeting on July 24 called by the Ethnic Communities Council in response to a spate of racist graffiti and vandalism.

The attacks took place on July 17-19 and have been linked to Jack van Tongeren's neo-nazi Australian Nationalists Workers Union. The meeting discussed strategies of combating racism. A proposal to form a community-based coalition against racism was adopted unanimously.
