Man makes Nazi salute and obscene gestures during Melbourne far-right rally

Actions

AUSTRALIA (CIRCA via STORYFUL) - A number of men were seen making Nazi salutes during a far-right rally on the St. Kilda beach foreshore in Victoria on Saturday. A video showed one man marching while making the salute.

The leader of the far-right United Patriots Front (UPF) group, Blair Cottrell, led a protest on youth crime and alleged African gang activity in Victoria. The protest was met with a counter-rally held in support of Melbourne’s African community.

Police formed a human wall to separate a far-right group and anti-racism activists during the rally.

The protest was organized by Cotrell and fellow far-right activist Neil Erikson, who was involved in a violent scuffle with a group of young black men at St. Kilda in December. One person was arrested in the incident after Erikson refused to stop filming the group playing soccer.

Erikson, who was convicted in 2017 of inciting contempt against Muslims, claimed the men were involved with the alleged gang APEX.
