condemns far-right group on social media Josh Burns has slammed a large group of white nationalists who photographed themselves performing a Nazi-style salute at a

popular beach in Melbourne, saying it “goes against everything this community stands for.” Burns, who is Jewish, tweeted criticism of a photo posted to social media by a

group linked to neo-Nazi leader Thomas Sewell. The group, which Guardian Australia has chosen not to name, has posted invitations to its followers for “Australian white

nationalist” events in Melbourne, and describes its aim as building “a physical and politicised White Australian community”. The group posted a photo to its social media

profile on Sunday, showing around 25 men - and what appears to be one child - raising their right arms in a Nazi-style salute and brandishing the group’s flag, at Elwood’s Point

Ormond lookout. Most of the men’s faces are blurred, but several are visible.
