Submission + - Anti-censorship protestors censor "racist" group-> 1 1

schliz writes: An "anti-immigration group" in Perth, Australia was ironically turned away from an anti-censorship rally on Saturday. The rally was organised to protest the Federal Government's plan to implement an ISP-level Internet filter, and featured speeches from an academic and political parties.

The anti-immigration group unfurled a "racist banner" above the stage as Greens Senator Scott Ludlam delivered the keynote speech, leading anti-filter protesters to chant: "No room for racists." An organiser explained: "We don't support people who oppress others with their words. That is not censorship — it is human rights."
