Dutch firebrand Wilders attends anti-Islam party launch in Australia

Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders was Wednesday shouted down by protesters as he helped launch a new political party in Perth, the anti-Islam Australian Liberty Alliance.

The Dutch firebrand and eurosceptic, who was controversially granted a visa, said the new party was modelled on his own Freedom Party in opposing “the Islamisation process”.

The secular Australian Liberty Alliance was set up by the Q Society of Australia, a volunteer-run anti-Islam lobby group established in Victoria state in 2010. The size of its membership is not known.
