With an election around the corner, politicians like Peter Dutton are cynically targeting African-Australians with a racist fear campaign.
Crime in Victoria has been falling for a decade. The Liberals’ racialised fear campaign is all about politics and votes, not about community safety.
Meanwhile, instead of standing up to the Liberals’ racist dog-whistling, the Victorian Labor government is joining the law-and-order bidding war by introducing new anti-association laws targeted at people as young as 14.
Melburnians must stand together to say no to racism and no to the targeting of the African-Australian community that is making our community less safe.
Join community members, legal experts, and Greens MPs at this community forum on how we can stop the attacks on the South Sudanese and African-Australian communities.
All welcome. Accessible venue.
