This episode is about challenging the anti-Islamic, white supremacist movement in Australia, featuring the United Patriots Front and Reclaim Australia.
We play Ray Grenfell’s interview with anti-fascist activist Barry Cade on the Melbourne fascist rally (and anti-fascist counter rally) from the weekend, as well as discussing tactics against fascism. This interview is from RTR92.1FM Indymedia – you can listen to episodes of this show here and you can listen to individual interviews through perthindymedia.net and Soundcloud.
We discuss groups like Reclaim Australia using Muslims and other minorities as scapegoats for the economic inequality caused by neoliberal policies, a hilarious denial of racism from a Reclaim Australia participant and equally hilarious in-fighting amongst white supremacists as a result of the resignation from the United Patriots Front by Sherman Burgess – he has been replaced by the Nazi Blair Cottrell.
Also covered is the “Islam is not a race” card that racists love to play, Radio National’s segment on Reclaim Australia and the United Patriots Front, and a Senate enquiry finds that Halal doesn’t fund terrorism – what a surprise! You can share our meme about this (based on Nazeem Hussein’s stand-up) on Facebook and Twitter (tweet embedded below).
