Neo-Nazi stickers found on campus

The stickers have been found near Fisher Library and the New Law Building.

Tens of Neo-Nazi stickers have been plastered on campus near Fisher Library and the Law School.

The stickers appear to be from the National Socialist Network, a group intimately linked with the Lad’s Society and Antipodean Resistance.

This follows similar events by the group at Swinburne University and the University of Queensland within the past month, signalling an orchestrated attempt to target Australian universities.

Antipodean Resistance last postered on campus in 2017 outside the Brennan McCallum learning hub.

In 2019, racist posters were also found in the Engineering and IT precinct on campus.

In a statement to Honi, a spokesperson for the University said, “We will remove the stickers as quickly as possible. No matter the medium, racism and any other form of discrimination are not tolerated in our community, and go against our values and our codes of conduct.”

“We would encourage anyone with information to contact our security team on 1800 SYD HLP (1800 793 457).”

Last year, Honi also uncovered the presence of fascist organising on campus through leaked Discord chat logs. That investigation revealed Neo-Nazi scrutiny of the University and its student organisations as far back as 2017.
