Geert Wilders Australia Visit

A message from the Q-Society:

You may have heard rumours that Q Society has invited Geert Wilders to Australia and that we are planning two public info events in
mid October.

These rumours are true.

We were asked to keep this under wraps until travel plans, security and formalities are finalised. This is now in place for three weeks, but as of today Geert is still waiting on Minister Bowen’s department to issue a visa so he can enter Australia.

Typically any law-abiding citizen of a friendly country visiting for a few days is issued with a visa within minutes of booking a flight.   Considering Geert has special security requirements, we appreciate this can take a few days, perhaps a week.   But not three weeks.

Surely there can be no reason to withhold a visa from the elected member of parliament from a friendly nation and close ally.


In particular not when Islamic radicals from Hizb ut-Tahrir, calling for the destruction of Israel and the overthrow of Western democracy,  have been given visas without any problems. Likewise members and supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood were swiftly issued with visas to lecture Australians on the virtues of Islam.

But after waiting for three weeks now, we are beginning to wonder what may be the reason for Minister Bowen’s department to process visas for Islamic hot heads in a hurry, but leave MPs from friendly European nations hang out to dry.

What kind of message does this send to Australians and our friends in the world?

We all should ask our federal MP and Senator this question so they can put this to Minister Bowen. If you’re not sure how to write and  how to find your MP, please see

And ask friends and connections to do the same. Minister Bowen’s contact details are below.
