Cory Bernardi and George Christensen's Q Society event stirs anger at Victoria University
by Tom McIlroy
Melbourne's Victoria University has launched a review of administrative processes after staff and students demanded an apology over a controversial anti-Islamic event featuring Liberal defector Cory Bernardi and outspoken backbencher George Christensen on Friday.
The Q Society event attracted more than 100 anti-racism protesters outside Victoria University's city convention centre, with a bus transporting guests blocked for more than an hour and clashes between attendees and activists.
The "Halal Choices" dinner, part of a two-night fundraising tour billed as part of a defence of free speech, was raising money for the legal defence bill of outspoken Q Society member Kirralie Smith, who is being sued for defamation over videos she made about halal certification practices.
