Far-right Christian groups are planning to gather on Macquarie Street in Sydney this weekend to rally, as LGBTQI activists work to counter with their own protest. On Saturday, March 18, the far-right groups claim their rally is to “protect our kids” from the “moral decay of society.” “While it’s entitled ‘protect the children’ or some variation, it’s important to understand the context of the groups and the broader trends in Australia and around the world”, says Jordan Humphreys, a member of Community Action for Rainbow Rights, an LGBTQI activist group, who infiltrated online organisational meetings for the weekend rally. “A lot of their concerns are about drag queens and teaching the children about sex education and LGBTQI+ people, and there not being laws about Christians being a persecuted minority, that’s the sort of politics of the rally.”
