Far-right party claims tripled membership ahead of Goldfields visit
by Sam Tomlin
The President of the Australian Liberty Alliance has rejected suggestions the anti-immigration party is a "single-issue" group, claiming the party has tripled its membership due to interest from disillusioned conservatives.
The ALA, launched in Perth last year by far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders, advocates hardline anti-Muslm policies, including a 10-year moratorium on immigration from Islamic nations, banning full face coverings in public and withdrawing Australia from the United Nations Refugee Convention.
But speaking to the ABC ahead of a planned meeting in Kalgoorlie-Boulder this week, ALA President and WA Senate candidate Debbie Robinson rejected suggestions the party was racist, or fixated on immigration over other policies.
