According to the Daily Mail, there were eight protesters against Ramadan and about 60 ‘anarchy’ types for Ramadan. Judging by the pictures, some of the thugs were covering their faces with scarves, calling for “trade-union-entered mass-action to drive the racist groups off the street”.
The group’s chairman Nick Folkes said the ideology was ‘incompatible’ with the Australian way of life.

Woolworths said it would continue to celebrate religious and cultural holidays with its customers
Police were forced to break up a clash involving angry protesters outside a Sydney Woolworths store who were opposing the supermarket giant celebrating the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
To celebrate the holiday, which began on June 28, Woolies put up ‘Happy Ramadan’ signs across 239 of its stores.
The move sparked outrage from some members of the public, prompting the Party for Freedom, a fringe political group, to organise a protest on Saturday.
During the demonstration, eight Party for Freedom members and about 60 pro-Islam protesters clashed outside Marrickville Woolworths on Illawarra Road.
Party of Freedom chairman Nick Folkes said the Islamic faith was ‘incompatible’ with the Australian way of life.
