Far-right Christian men, some wearing Christian Lives Matter T-shirts, set upon and attacked LGBTQI activists outside a church in the southwest Sydney suburb of Belfield, where One Nation MLC Mark Latham was due to give a speech on Tuesday evening. “Hundreds of violent far-right thugs attacked a small peaceful speak-out of LGBTI+ activists with glass bottles, rocks and their fists. Several people were punched in the face multiple times and hit with rocks and bottles as they were surrounded by a mob 30 times their size,” Community Action for Rainbow Rights posted on social media. CARR posted two videos, one of the men dressed in black swarming around the LGBTQI protesters and the second one of Christian Sukkar calling for attacks on protesters.
