There has been much public interest in the Political Meeting organized for St Kilda Beach this Saturday at 1pm which aims discuss how the community should respond to another summer wave of African youth gang crime in Melbourne.
The meeting is being organized by patriot activist Neil Erikson of Cooks Convicts after his confrontation with a group of Africans he was filming at St Kilda Beach last Friday night.
The meeting is being promoted via his Facebook page as well as by other various patriot pages and groups such as the True Blue Crew.
The meeting is supported by fellow patriot activist and leader of the United Patriots Front Blair Cottrell whose video message on Erikson’s page now has over 100,000 views.
Although he won’t be attending Shermon Burgess, the founder of the United Patriots Front also posted a message of support on his YouTube channel.
Other support the meeting has been able to receive is from the local Vietnamese Community who have also been victims of Sudanese crime gangs in St Albans in Melbourne’s West.
Tom Tran has merged his Rise Up Melbourne – Romper Stomper 2.0 event scheduled for the same day with Erikson’s meeting. The issue of local crime will also be raised at the local Vietnamese Community’s Lunar New Year Festival of St. Albans on the Sunday.
The Proud Boys local Victorian Chapter will also be in attendance. Despite all the negative and fake mainstream media reporting over the past few months its Australian membership is still strong and they are eager to re-enter the activism scene.
The mainstream media have labelled the meeting as a “far-right” gathering and claimed the desire to “take back our beaches” is going to inspire a Cronulla 2.0 race riot which occurred in Sydney in 2005 over assaults at the beach by men described of being of Middle Eastern Appearance.
Erikson both on his Facebook page and in his promotional videos has stressed this will be a peaceful and non-violent meeting, highlighting that the media and left want it to be violent so to discredit those concerned about African violent crime.
Blair Cottrell on Twitter has stated the meeting is not protest against “Africans” but the government and media forcing mass migration on Australia and calling anyone racist who highlights crime and terror that has resulted from it.
The meeting is expected to have a heavy police presence with Victoria Police stating they ‘respects people’s right to protest peacefully, but ‘will not tolerate those who break the law,’ adding ‘Anyone coming to the event looking to cause trouble can expect a firm response from police; you will be arrested and held to account if you commit a crime.’
Various law enforcement agencies including the Australian Federal Police have been contacting Erikson and Cottrell about the meeting. Local leader of the True Blue Crew Kane Miller is reported to have ‘gone missing’ the past few days for unknown reasons.
Facebook has also been believed to have limited the reach of Neil Erikson’s page in order to stop word of the meeting spreading throughout the network.
Local African community leaders have condemed the meeting with lawyer Maker Mayek claiming ‘The protests are likely to inflame fears and tensions in race relations which suffered greatly as a result of the sensationalist reporting and dog-whistling we saw in 2018.’
Sudanese lawyer Nyadol Nyuon who organized the petition to have Gavin McInnes banned from Australia claimed on Twitter ‘a racist rally, led by convicted criminals, can go ahead with their leaders enjoying media coverage that cast them as having legitimate concerns, and who will find support from free speech worries insisting on their rights to effectively harass black peoples’.
Local Antifa groups have been busy organizing counter events aimed at both deterring attendance to the meeting and disrupting it. There is Community solidarity picnic party hosted by The Smashed Avocado Movement, and the Anti fascist beach party hosted by well known Melbourne Antifa activist Sue Munro, which is now the official event of Melbourne’s most well known Antifa protest group, the Campaign Against Racism and Fascism
FAKE NEWS ALERT
In their effort to try and discredit the patriot organisers of the meeting, a unknown leftist created a fake Facebook post from Neil Erikson from a non-existent Facebook group Cooks Convicts Inner Circle with a fake comment by Blair Cottrell.
The fake post is full of spelling mistakes designed to portray Erikson as illiterate, that the whole meeting is only designed to gain them Facebook likes and that they believe their supporters are naturally violent.
The post can easily be decrypted as fake given that Blair Cottrell is banned from Facebook and no such profile exists. Nevertheless Antifa groups and even prominent leftist commentators such as Far. Rod Bowers have been passing the post off as fact.
Currently the Facebook event page lists 400 as attending and 1,300 people as interested with organizers hoping for 500-1000 attendees on Saturday, they are meeting on the left side of St Kilda’s Main Pier. Many patriot groups are coming from interstate.
How the meeting unfolds on Saturday will significantly determine how the African youth gang crime wave this summer is responded to by the media, government and law enforcement authorities.
