I was wheeled out of semi-retirement to speak at the counter rally this
afternoon.  Odious opportunists that they are, the "Reclaim Australia"
bunch of crazies held rallies in the major cities here today. The following
report is quite reasonable coming as it does from a mainstream source

We outnumbered them and out-chanted and out-sung them.  Even more important
we held the high ground both literally and metaphorically.  The
anti-Muslims are a pathetic lot here.  Everyone knows that anti-Muslims
sentiments would cripple key industries  in Australia.  The tertiary
education sector would probably collapse and live agricultural exports
would be wiped out.So an anti-Islam movement is not a viable option for the
ruling class and the above report reflects that.

What was most heartening for an old leftist like myself was the atmosphere
of bright cheerful militancy among so many young people.

As the poet said "It is [still] possible, possible, possible. It must be
possible".
