From the Bunglawussi Watch:
Following on from the Australian Defence League’sflop in SydneyÂ last weekend, another “ban the burqa” protest was held yesterday in Brisbane.
Organised by the Australian Patriots Defence Movement, an organisation that claims affiliation to the EDL and was launched following the broadcast of the TV documentaryÂ The Great Divide, the demonstration managed to attract 20 supporters, who were heavily outnumbered by counter-protestors.

Â Our detractors know very well that Islam is not a race, but they Â keep flogging it like a dead donkey. But facts are stubborn, and Â the resistance will grow.
