Far-right and hard-left groups to face off at Melbourne 'crime wave' rally (the age)

Same-sex marriage, racism and hate-speech will be centre stage as far-right activists march on the streets of Melbourne on Sunday.

The Trumpesque "Make Victoria Safe Again" rally has been organised by far-right figure Avi Yemini, a former Israeli army officer who says Victorians are living in fear after a spate of home invasions and carjackings.
