Anti-racism protest after 'Stop the Mosques' banner causes outrage in AFL game

 

Anti-racism campaigners will gather in Federation Square to protest against the far right-wing United Patriots Front.

Members of United Patriots Front unveiled the "Stop the mosques" banner at the Collingwood AFL game on Friday night which sparked strong condemnation from the AFL, the club and political figures, including Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.

"They're not welcome at our game and they're not supporters of our game," AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan told reporters on Saturday.

The club awaits the outcome of further investigations into the matter by the AFL, the Victoria Police and MCG security.
