Sydney, Australia: Report-Back from the ‘Straight Lives Matter’ Counter-Demo

AFA_Sydney

23.09.17: We had many more people, we sang and we danced and we laughed and we loved but most of all we told the fascists to get the fuck out. We did not let them anywhere near the Queer holocaust remembrance memorial and we created great bonds of solidarity and friendship. There were some young Queer people who came, and it was their first rally an they said it was a fantastic experience.

For all of the liberal wah-wah about how we would destabalise the marriage equality debate, we’ve actually done nothing of the sort. Instead we have continued the spirit of queer resistance and we have given the next generation their first taste of the struggle.

Today was a big positive for anti-fascists, however it would be wrong of us not to mention the role of the Liberal Party in laying the groundworks for the Party for Freedom hate rally today. This is all a direct consequence of their stupid fucking plebiscite.
