Bendigo mosque protest: Anti-mosque and anti-racism protesters clash
by Tom Cowie
Police deployed capsicum spray in the heart of Bendigo on Saturday afternoon as violent scuffles broke out between opposing protest groups over plans for a mosque.
About 200 people gathered in the central Victorian city for a protest organised by the United Patriots Front, where they were met with equal numbers from left-wing groups including No Room For Racism and the Socialist Alternative.
A huge police presence, including a mounted unit, locked down large areas of the regional city in anticipation of the groups coming together.
