Police Arrest and Charge Five Right-Wing MILO Supporters With Assault in Melbourne

Australia Police Melbourne MILO Protest

Australian police have arrested right-wing counter-protestors over the violence that erupted during MILO’s visit to Melbourne in December. 

In December, MILO’s speech at the Melbourne Pavilion became a flashpoint for violence after left-wing protesters organized by a local Antifa group called Campaign Against Racism and Fascism (CARF) provoked attacks against a smaller group of counter-protestors who showed up outside the venue.

The main group of leftists saw upwards of 400 protesters, some of whom brandished weapons and hurled objects at right-wing demonstrators and police. CARF admitted to instigating the violence.

Hundreds of police officers, dozens in riot gear, were forced to break up the two groups. Two protesters were arrested—one from each side.

On December 28, two men—a 33-year-old from Wonthaggi and a 28-year-old from Sunbury—were arrested and charged with affray and assault offenses, the Daily Mail reported.

And on Tuesday, reports surfaced in the Australian press that police raided the homes of two other men—a 33-year-old from Surrey Hills, and a 48-year-old Eltham man—charging them with the same offenses.

A fifth man was also arrested, according to Blair Cottrell, who posted word on Twitter that all five individuals were right-wing demonstrators. According to Cottrell, the men had their homes raided after New Year’s Eve by “heavily armed, un-uniformed policemen.”

“Their children were gun pointed with rifles,” he wrote. “Police charged them with affray. This is all in relation to their attendance to the Milo event.”

If convicted, all five men could potentially be sentenced to a maximum of 10 years in prison. They are expected to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates Court on June 8.

Victoria Police states that they expect to make more arrests as investigations continue.

    A left wing authoritarian government decided to ignore organized left wing violence in favor of raiding the homes of right wing counter protestors. Imagine my shock! That can’t possibly end in armed revolution like it’s 1973 all over again or anything.

    Melbourne police are hopelessly corrupt. None of this surprises me.

    As an Australian who attended Milo’s event at the Gold Coast, two and a half thousand people absolutely adored him and we all had the best night.

    I was fortunate to have a VIP ticket to meet’n’greet Milo. It was a great photo. I am nearly six feet tall and pretty skinny so I was delightfully surprised that Milo was taller. Gosh I love that guy ***** I was so damn happy ***

    Lots of laughter, seriousness, critical thinking and best of all – as you would expect from conservatives; we were all polite respectful and welcomed Milo to our gorgeous beaches (Google Gold Coast Queensland and you will get an idea of how beautiful the Gold Coast is)

    We are so looking forward to his 2018 Australian tour – and get this – not one single protestor. I think it’s because the Gold Coast is so laid back, easy going and has the best weather ever during the entire year. Don’t know the answer exactly.

    I know we are on the other side of the world to everyone but Australia is the world’s best kept secret. I live in the Sunshine State (Queensland) which has the Great Barrier Reef and the stunning Gold Coast and equally lovely Sunshine Coast (Noosa, Mooloolaba). Think about visiting us some time……the only problem is that we are unfortunately dominated by SJW and left wing extremists.

    Have you any ideas of how to push back and rally conservatives (who are far too polite) to at least have an effect on these left wing bullies and scary progressives who wave the hammer and sickle banner. That sends shivers through me when I see it……do people get that tens of millions of people that died needlessly underneath that flag

    I absolutely love blogging on this site. I hate Facebook and Twitter (so left wing) and when I try and blog in response to my local newspaper’s content my comments are always blocked. Again, evidence that conservative voices are ‘banned’. This is more than alarming. At least I am free to express my opinions on this site with like minded people.

    I work with morbidly obese feminists who think I am weird coz I don’t pork out at lunch and they know I’m right wing. Of course they are left wing extremists and it is so difficult being surrounded by strident spiteful women whose hypocrisy is breathtaking.

    Gotta toughen up don’t I **************
