Images and sound from Perth rally against Islamophobia

Over 200 people rallied in Perth city on October 18 to stand against Islamophobia. The government and corporate media are fostering an environment in which ordinary people blame Muslims, instead of the Abbott government, for their problems.

The result is sweeping attacks on civil liberties for all in Australia.

It is also being used as an excuse for a new war in Iraq.
