Australia - Victorian government sued by five Jewish students for antisemitic bullying

Brighton East, VIC - The Victorian government is being sued by five Jewish students who claim they endured years of antisemitic bullying at Brighton Secondary College in south-east Melbourne.

Sky News Australia can reveal the state government, school principal and two teachers face a Federal Court hearing in proceedings for breaching of the Racial Discrimination Act and negligence.

The boys have accused the school of turning a blind eye to abuse and for violating human rights by creating a “prison culture” on the College’s grounds.

Lawyers for the Victorian government and school staff deny the allegations and have declined to comment.
