Thou shalt not congregate
The level of self-censorship and attacks on freedom continue.
The Logan City Safe Communities had planned to hold a meeting on Brisbane’s southside to discuss whether more Islam in the local community was actually making it safer. Considering Logan was home to one of Australia’s first Islamic suicide bombers, it’s a question worth asking.
But the Logan City Safe Communities has had their venue cancelled. They cannot meet, as reported online by brisbanetimes.com.au:
A community group has been barred from meeting at a Logan football club, after Rochedale Rovers officials found out they were planning to host anti-Islamic speakers.
Logan City Safe Communities is one of several groups campaigning against a proposed mosque in Slacks Creek, and was due to hold a meeting at the club on Monday night.
However Rochedale Rovers called off the meeting after senior club figures saw a pamphlet distributed by the group with the headline: “How safe will your family be as Islam grows in Logan?”.
The organiser, Chris Newman, had this to say:
“There’s a lot of evidence that what was once a peaceful Australian, multi-ethnic community has been invaded by an outside force that is seeking to colonise,” he said.
“We already have evidence of a suicide bomber from Logan, we have evidence there is a cadre of young people from Logan who have served in ISIS and some of them have come back.”
