More than 200 people gathered in Hannah Watts Park, Melton, about 35km west of Melbourne on Sunday, to protest what they see as the ‘rise of Islam’. The protest, organized by far-right groups, had been sparked by the building of a75-lot development in Melton seen as a Muslim housing estate, although local authorities denied its religious orientation. The protesters held national flags and banners with anti-Islam slogans.
