Racial violence in Cronulla

I’m ashamed to be called Australian sometimes.


“New South Wales Police say several people of Middle Eastern appearance were attacked by a mob at Sydney’s Cronulla Beach today.”

Another blurb. This one’s a little weird; it almost reads as though attacking these people (who aren’t really Middle Eastern) is worse:

“In terms of crowd swells against some people of Arabic extraction … some of those people that have been targeted have been Australian-born people that attend this beach in a quiet and relaxing manner,” he said.

Another followup story here.
