This is a short one where we give our take on the Sydney Siege and the #illridewithyou campaign. This includes discussion on some of the inaccurate media coverage on the siege and how happy we are to see widespread opposition to the Islamophobic reactions. We also play an interview with counter-terrorism expert Dr Anne-Azza Aly from People Against Violent Extremism. This interview is thanks to Alex Whisson and Perth Indymedia on RTR92.1FM. For more of our coverage opposing Islamophobia, check out our 69th and 70th episodes.
