Reclaim Australia group holds demonstrations across Australia

A group called Reclaim Australia held demonstrations across Australia against “Isalamization.” The demonstrations drew hundreds of protesters in many cities, including Melbourne, Hobart, Tasmania, Victoria, Brisbane, and Sydney. The demonstrations were mainly peaceful although some clashes did occur with anti-racism protesters.

There is some religious tension in Australia, and Sitata reminds travellers to minimize safety risk by avoiding large public gatherings or demonstrations since even peaceful rallies can escalate quickly and unexpectedly.
