The self-described “National Socialist” group Antipodean Resistance has stuck swastika stickers on poles and lampposts throughout Balaclava Road, a Jewish area of Melbourne.

CFCA reports that the group purposely targeted the area which has a higher-than-average Jewish population.

Antipodean Resistance is a Neo-Nazi group which is based largely in the Melbourne area in Australia. The group describes itself as “the Hitlers you’ve been waiting for” and seems to be militant in its approach, claiming that they want “no weaklings, degenerates, and no keyboard warriors” and calling for “action”.

The say that they “oppose substance abuse, homosexuality, and all other rotten, irresponsible distractions laid before us by Jews and globalist elites”.

The group is clearly both militant and unashamedly neo-Nazi. They appear to be quite organised, and have previously orchestrated similar “raids” at Melbourne University.

Though the appearance of Swastika stickers may appear harmless, it is clearly an attempt by this group to intimidate the local Jewish community with the knowledge that a group of militant neo-Nazis are on their doorstep.

On their website, the group brags about several other similar incidents, and speaks about how the Jewish area was “ethnically homogeneous”, using this as an excuse to peddle a conspiracy theory about Jews promoting mass immigration.

They have also produced extremely worrying rhetoric about other ethnic minorities and homosexuals, including mocking high suicide rates among LGBT individuals and calling for it to increase.

We hope that Melbourne police will take decisive action, and will update our readers when we have more information.
