Melton: A Firsthand Account

Melton was the site of yet another disgraceful bigoted protest by Reclaim Australia (RA). Their ranks bolstered by deluded Nationalists like the True Blue Crew (TBC) as well as Nazi skinheads.

They did not go unopposed however. There to meet them were the combined forces of Socialist Alternative (SA), Bendigo Action Coalition (BAC), Antifa, Campaign Against Racism and Fascism (CARF), numerous ‘independents’ like myself, and others.

There were instances of sporadic violence throughout the day, as Nazis and RA cling-ons tried to infiltrate our ranks, and disrupt our protest. All were repelled. Victoria Police even attempted to unleash their cavalry on us. This was halted in spite of our ranks being doused in CS spray/foam. Many brave demonstrators, risking life and limb, put their bodies literally on the line, to hold back the advancing cavalry.

 

Our point was made. Bigotry will not be tolerated in Melton, or anywhere else in Australia for that matter.

The injuries sustained by our people (myself included) should be worn with pride. Each one is a badge of honour; whether they are CS burns, bruises, broken bones, split lips etc.

To each and every human being who came out to oppose the bigots, I salute you. I offer you my thanks, and my solidarity.

  1. We won in Melton. We prevented the Nazi scum from spreading their vile hate speech throughout Melton. Our chants drowned out their moronic spew. Well done to all the anti fascist protesters.
