Hired thugs vs the Mural
Update from the Australian Islamist Monitor:
On Sunday, a demonstration was held in Newtown, Sydney, opposing a Mural that states: “Say No To Burqas”.
The demonstration turned violent and over 100 police were deployed and several arrests were made.
The demonstration highlighted two very important issues. In the fist instance, it is reverse discrimination against freedom of speech and expression in Australia as surely the owner of the premises is entitled to express his view in a non violent manner.
I personally find the Burqa offensive, un-Australian and divisive, it is uncalled for and not part of any Australian tradition by any stretch of the imagination and I genuinely pity the poor women who wear it.
We do NOT want the Australian culture challenged by any person, group or faith.
In the second instance, it is concerning that some of the women who wear the Burqa are either forced to, or they tell us it shows they areÂ “dignified, respectable and virtuous, and it is part of their Islamic dress code for unrighteous women”. Â (More)
More to come on this. The following is related to thisÂ event posted yesterday (Vlad Tepes/GoV)
Seven men have been charged following a protest at Newtown in Sydney’s inner west today.
Here some feedback:
- The protester version of events (a pathetic smear job from the leftarded Indymedia)
The “racism” crapola by the leftist media loons is deliberate and designed to shut down the debate.
It won’t work: Islam is not a race.
Sharia, burqa, child marriage, polygamy, FGM, honor killings, wife beating, rape, slavery and jihad is incompatible with Australian values. The Islamic invasion must end, Muslim immigration reversed.
About 1:45pm, officers attached to Newtown Local Area Command attended the vicinity of Station Street and Enmore Road to monitor an unplanned protest.
About 50 people had gathered in the area before making their way to Gladstone Street where they continued the protest.
About 2:20pm, an unidentified female allegedly threw paint at a wall before running from the scene. The crowd turned on police when they went to arrest a 29-year-old man who had also allegedly thrown paint at the wall.
Further police attended the scene and seven men were arrested and taken to Newtown Police Station while the remainder of the protesters were moved-on towards Enmore Road.
Those arrested and charged were:
Â· A 29-year-old man charged with resist/hinder police and destroy or damage property;
Â· A 41-year-old man charged with assault police and resist/hinder police;
Â· A 20-year-old man charged with two counts of resist/hinder police and one count of escape police custody;
Â· A 24-year-old man charged with assault police and resist/hinder police;
Â· A 29-year-old man charged with assault police and resist/hinder police;
Â· A 28-year-old man charged with two counts of resist police; and,
Â· A 28-year-old man charged with two counts of resist police and one count of assault police.
Six of the men were granted conditional bail to appear in Newtown Local Court on Tuesday 8 February 2011 while the 41-year-old man will appear on Tuesday 1 March.
