Demonstrators gathered to protest against the rising tide of antisemitism at Melbourne's 'Never Again is Now' rally held outside the Victorian Parliament over the weekend.

The event saw the presence of anti-Israel counter-protesters harassing rallygoers and supporters of the Jewish community, leading to tense exchanges and a notable police presence.

As tensions rose, members of Antifa appeared on the scene, ostensibly to counter the antisemitism rally. In an ironic state of affairs, the Antifa supporters stood side by side with the pro-Hamas crowd. 

Morgan C. Jonas summed it up perfectly with his thoughts on the pro-Palestinian movement, describing it as an "unholy alliance" with a common goal of opposing Jews.

He questioned the rationale of far-left supporters, suggesting their efforts to appease extremist groups were misguided and dangerous.

Thankfully, my security guard Daniel ensured our safety as tensions rose at various times with the counter-protesters targeting our crew at various points.

Throughout the day, the Victoria Police managed the confrontations, moving to disperse Antifa and other counter-protesters.

In stark contrast to the counter-protesters, those rallying against antisemitism displayed Israeli flags alongside Australian ones, advocating for peace and democratic values.

The rally culminated in a call for unity and vigilance against hate, with organisers stressing the importance of standing against antisemitism globally.
