Melbourne’s inner north suburb of Coburg became a flash point for tensions in the on going polarization between Melbourne traditional Marxist/socialist leaning groups and the emerging nationalist/anti immigration/anti muslim protest groups. Melbourne and Bendigo have seen a series ongoing escalating clashes between these groups over the past 12 months. In these clashes it seems the Marxists sought to initiate the violence, which is somewhat typical for leftists. Apparently 1.7 million dollars was spend by Victoria police on preparation for this event, with staff being brought in from many divisions. The violence was brief but intense and broken up with OC (capsicum) spray deployed by Victoria police. These protest clashes show no signs of deescalating, and Victoria police seemingly being stretched to the limit to control them. Where to from here? Well the Occupy movements were an attempt to sort out issues in a peaceful civilized (though slow and clumsy) manner, and state forces brutally crushed them. Now the state have made this form of ‘dispute resolution’ inevitable. Now OC orange is the new black, and equal rights have give way to right hooks. It’s the world you choose, and we hope you don’t regret your choices later on.
From the 7 news affiliate, largely from Marxist group perspective.
From the ‘He said his dad works at pine gap’ affiliates perspective, largely of the brawl. Looks like you got lucky Benjamin. The audio is somewhat poor, being punctuated with the sound of the still shot bursts.
That’s some video of the event, make up you own mind about who did what and when.
Last weekend saw another anti-mosque protest in Bendigo, this time by the UPF (United Patriots Front), , mostly ex-military out of towners who are using the anti-mosque sentiment in Bendigo for their own purposes . It appears that while actual Bendigo citizens joined the rally, some of the Bendigo anti mosque action groups distanced themselves from this subtle take-over. One of the typical signs of any protest movement are the splinter groups which eventually result. The UPF itself being a splinter group of the more moderate Reclaim Australia.
All things being equal, though, all these groups have a common goal of trying to prevent the spread of Islam in Australia, as it has begun to reveal itself worldwide for the violent hate cult it really is . While the military posturing and patriotic flag waving might be unpalatable and offensive to middle class sensibilities, so far it hasn’t actually harmed anyone, which is more than can be said for the aggressive and violent left wing black bloc in particular
On the other side of the fence (or bridge in this instance), a leftie group from Melbourne ,called No Room for Racism, which drew attention to itself at the last Bendigo protest in August by being violent, intolerant and aggressive, culminating in the burning of an Australian flag and the resulting scuffle which led to the use of pepper spray by the police.
It’s interesting that the left wing protesters were easily kept in check by the police behind the bridge in Rosalind park so they were unable to confront the UFP, even thought here are plenty of ways to enter the park from the other side and if they had been real citizens of Bendigo they would have known this.
Because of the amount of drama caused by No Room for Racism in August, they could only attend the latest rally by coming up with a new name : Bendigo Action Group are basically the same people as No Room for Racism, a group which is rumoured to be founded and funded by socialist party Yarra City counciller Stephen Jolly. Many of the same faces that have turned up at protests in the last 4 years were also seen in Bendigo on the weekend, including, notably, the politically neutral Kenji Wardencliffe (of Wardencliffe photograpy) who was there to take photos .
Here is an example of his work and the cognitive dissonance it captures perfectly :
I contacted Bendigo Action Coalition (who should more aptly be named Melbourne Controlled Opposition) on their Facebook page with the question of the connection between Stephen Jolly , No Room for Racism and Bendigo Action Coalition). The question was deflected by the use of several fallacies and now I am not able to post on their page anymore, another typical example of leftist free speech in action. Why not just answer the question with yes or no rather than making a huge song and dance ? I guess the answer to that is obvious : I got too close to the truth.
Here are the screen shots, one contains a draft of my reply and the other what I actually ended up sending which got me banned from posting on the page, confirming the old Communist proverb : ” We believe in Free Speech as long as you agree with us, if not we shut you up and kill you.”

This seemed appropriate.

This is a fascinating development and one that I had no idea was happening until today. It seems that rallies are spreading throughout Germany protesting the corrupt and dying global status quo. One of the key targets of these groups is the U.S. Federal Reserve system, which as I and many others have maintained, is the core cancer infecting the entire planet.
According to the organizer of these rallies, they have now spread to up to 100 cities and have a combined attendee base of around 20,000. What is also interesting, is that the mainstream media in Germany is calling them Nazis. In Germany, if you don’t support Central Banking, this apparently means you are a Nazi. What a joke. Just more proof mainstream media everywhere is complete and total propaganda. It is also a good sign, since it shows the desperate lengths to which the power structure will go to keep their criminal ponzi alive.
Do these folks seem like Nazis to you?
Recently the MSM went digging for quotes from original organizers who apparently wished to claim to be organizers but don’t want to identify themselves. These fools wanted to claim the Occupy Melbourne was an anti capitalist movement. When did I see it advertised as that? Never.
Just more bullshit from Marxists and their cronies trying to claim ownership but in a tangential way now that the name Occupy Melbourne is too hot to handle.
Occupy Melbourne was never Anti Capitalist
So to clear up the created confusion by a poorly researched initial two paragraphs we give you this:
So there you have it corporatism is a form of socialism, hence all the bank bailouts, another reason we went to occupy. So in reality occupy was an anti socialist protest that got infiltrated and sandbagged by socialists of various stripes.
There were of course some rather lame claims of this being a site for conspiracy theorists ( what a Nixon term ) so we leave you with the god father of 20th century conspiracy JFK. JFK decided it was time to start minting silver coins again through EO 11110 and then he was killed in broad daylight. Co-incidence? We’ll let you decide, we just wanted to make you aware of that.
We generally don’t promise or offer solutions, we just raise issues. Only you can decide and demand the world you want to live in.
Hi JS, we have decided to not approve your comment as it is misleading and contained numerous errors.
Firstly we are not a socialist group, if you wish to review our thoughts on socialism please click the following link.
You can use the search feature on the left to find our previous articles by keyword search. This media outlet has been the official media site of Occupy Melbourne since March 9 2013. The ‘.org’, twitter and facebook groups were hijacked and refused to respond to the wishes of the occupiers. We decided to remain anonymous to keep our ego’s out of the way of the message.
If as a lawyer working for the government, you are going to post general disparaging comments against activist groups from your Facebook account from work when you are ‘working’ for the government, I really need to ask: Are you skiving off from doing your job or is this your actual job?
I mean seriously are you a paid troll? Because it really looks like it.
Or this this just massive cognitive dissonance?
If you know how to look through the media mayhem we produce you’ll realize we do some serious investigative journalism, that’s why when we talked about Mega Mosques in Melbourne the mainstream media listened.
Don’t ask how we know, but we have proof.
We suggest you reread you copy of 1984.
Should we expose the name of the suspected paid troll? We’ll do a poll from the comments to this article.
Live up dates from the hijack scene at federation square.
Apparently this was just a bunch of socialists trying to recruit from the student fees protest.
Unconfirmed rumors state they did try to name drop Occupy Melbourne and Occupy Sydney in their spiel, but we certainly didn’t approve it.
So in honour of our failure to report facts and rely on rumors and second hand news we give to you:
Fleetwood Mac’s classic ‘Second hand news’ from the album ‘Rumors’
Did you see what I just did there.
Its also a subtle jibe at people who ‘borrow’ our stories and don’t give full credit where credit is due.
The youtube clip “Occupy is an inside job” by Sanuel Williams (see a few posts down) , inspired me to write this response.The clip is a crtical re-assessment of the Occupy movement which appears to have been widely infiltrated by government forces and while I believe this to be true I also believe that there is a way forward if we re-interpret Occupy not so much as a political movement but as a birthplace of a new consciousness. The birth may have been messy and painful but that doesn’t mean something good cannot grow out of it, but only if we manage to get rid of long-held false beliefs and red herrings.(I won’t say what those are as they differ from person to person)
The Occupy movement was certainly hi-jacked by agent provocateurs and silly greenies and socialists, it was also centrally “planned” inasmuch that it had a common origin , Occupy Wall Street, which in turn was created by Adbusters who used the Spanish occupations as a model. The model was flawed, which is why the same problems arose everywhere. The model was flawed because it presumed that all protesters are essentially good and come with the highest motivations for the common good too, while in the end they operate with the same egocentric low consciousness as the people they are fighting. However, i doubt it was planned by the governments, as they probably would have preferred not to have the hassle in the first place. or maybe the gov knows that people are essentially full of shit, so all they have to do is send in a few agents and watch the whole thing blow up.
When Samuel William is saying that there isn’t a truly free market and that’s what’s causing our problems, it’s is oversimplifying things a bit. Partly our problems are due to banks and companies becoming more un-regulated over the last 40 years, the whole neo=con agenda was deregulation. Although i agree that the wrong kind of restrictions are also problematic.
Ultimately what I have found is that whether it’s capitalism, socialism, environmentalism, feminism and kind of -ism will lead to problems if the wrong people with the wrong agenda are behind it and because if left unchecked they will all lead to extremes which will end up hurting someone. Any -ism has failure built in because language and semantics are not going to solve anything, the only solutions are spiritual, that is people need to come from a higher consciousness, which means not coming from an attitude of selfishness and greed and valuing an excess of material goods more highly than interactions between humans and our interconnection with the planet we all share.
The Free Shop is a little microcosm of proof that we have more than we need and curiously the more we share the more we have. This flies in the face of socialism and environmentalism which operate on the idea of limited resources, and it flies in the face of capitalism too, as the shopkeepers do not operate in order to create profit (while at the same time creating abundance for themselves and others out of seemingly thin air). And strangely, if there is no profit agenda, women’s work, which is largely unpaid or underpaid in society, because it’s based on the idea of sharing and caring, is valued just as highly and so there are no feminism agendas in the Free Shop either. Any “competition” between Freeshopkeepers to provide better goods also ultimately benefits everyone. The Free Shop is a model of what could be.Of course in the real world you get people with lower consciousness taking stuff from the Free Shop and selling it for a profit on Ebay ! But why should people buy it from Ebay if they can get it for free at the Free Shop? So in the end it’s self-regulating. And if the government wants to ever prevent people from sharing with each other, I would like to see them try!There aren’t enough agents in the world to watch every human interaction and nobody can take away your thoughts (although admittedly Facebook is trying).
It’s hard to imagine a world without money at this stage, but it’s not impossible, as all our money is fake anyway and it’s our un-evolved consciousness which is preventing us from taking the next step. Instead, we blame each other, or some evil forces (Doyle ,Obama, Monsatan) that are supposedly pulling the strings, when the real enemy, our egocentric ,territorial reptile consciousness, is still inside each and every one of us. In that respect I fully agree: Occupy is an inside job.
