Extremism researcher voices concerns with ‘uptick’ in left-wing activism in society
Extremism researcher at Deakin University, Associate Professor Joshua Roose, has voiced his concerns with an “uptick” in left-wing activism and messaging throughout society in recent times.
It comes after Toorak residents were bombarded with letters claiming “you are too wealthy … and that’s harming a lot of people”, as well as tyres being let down on SUV’s in the area, and concerning fake stickers posted in Coles and Woolworths down in Tasmania.
“They’re doing it with a firm focus on gaining notoriety and gaining a wider public support for their messaging,” Professor Roose told Neil Mitchell.
