Recent events in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane involving intense scrutiny of the Australian Islamic community have seen tensions dramatically on the rise.
Victoria University Greens group is hosting a community forum with the theme being: 'Terror, policing, ASIO, Islam and the Community.'
The Western Suburbs is the most diverse region in Melbourne. It is vital that the community is engaged and informed. We celebrate our diversity, stand up to racism, and want to create a community that is safe for everyone.
