Australia - Antisemitic graffiti was discovered in Melbourne

St Kilda, Melbourne
- Antisemitic graffiti daubed on Melbourne’s Gary Smorgon Oval, which is home to AJAX sporting clubs, on Saturday afternoon has been described as a “cowardly act” of “pure hatred”.

The words “Abo (The reference is probably to the Aborigines) land not kike land” were found scrawled on a wall of the club’s rooms. A swastika and the words “Nazi” and “Jews” were spray-painted alongside the slur.

The vandalism, which was reported to Port Phillip City Council and to CSG, was removed earlier today.
