Protests greet far right speaker to Australia

Well known USA far right propagandist and multimedia troll, Milo Yiannopoulos concluded his tour of Australian cities this week. Milo is a mouthpiece for the far right in the USA, targeting minorities, the labour movement and the left in general. Milo is backed by far right news outlets like the Breitbart News Network and capitalists like billionaire Robert Mercer. In Australia he was able to meet fellow far right personalities in the Australian Parliament. While thousands paid to hear his hate speeches, anti-fascist protests met his performances (see here for Adelaide, Perth, Sydney reports). Melbourne witnessed the biggest protest, lasting around 6 hours, including large numbers of people from the migrant working class communities who lived near the venue (for reports see here and here – for photos, see here and here).
