Demonstration In Melbourne Against Geert Wilders (video)

Organised by Students For Palestine, and with the comrades from Socialist Alliance inevitably participating, here's a demo in the Melbourne suburb of Somerton on 19 February against the appearance of anti-Islamist campaigner Geert Wilders at a public meeting organised by the Q Society.


Demonstrators physically tried to prevent people from going in to hear Wilders: see, for instance, this report.

  1. I would be interested to know if the Perth hotel which summarily cancelled the booking, is to be sued for breach of contract - as it should be.

  2. The CBD hotel is still unnamed in reports.
