A MELBOURNE man has been spotted wearing a Nazi swastika armband at a fruit and vegetable market in Moorabbin.
The incident took place on Friday afternoon and after calling Victoria Police, a shocked witness was told by officers that it is not illegal to display the Nazi swastika publicly.
Anti-Defamation Commission chairman Dvir Abramovich said, “What’s next, marching with Nazi flags in the CBD? Melbourne is not Nazi Germany, and allowing this sickening and brazen display by individuals who support Hitler and the murder of Jews has to stop.
“It is simply unacceptable to think that in Melbourne neo-Nazi thugs have a license to openly brandish this symbol of extermination and evil, knowing full well that Victoria police is powerless to stop them.
“I repeat our call for the state government to ban the public displays of Nazism. Enough is enough.”
