Christine Forster ‘assaulted’ as Manus Island protest turns violent

Christine Forster ‘assaulted’ as Manus Island protest turns violent, by AAP.

Tony Abbott’s sister Christine Forster has spoken of her fear as she was attacked by an angry group of protesters who surrounded her and her partner outside a Liberal Party fundraiser.

Ms Forster, a councillor for the City of Sydney, had her jacket torn to shreds and was subjected to verbal abuse as she tried to enter the Australian Technology Park in Sydney’s Redfern on Friday night.

The protest was organised by the Refugee Action Coalition Sydney over the treatment of refugees on Manus Island and saw some of the 200-strong crowd clash with police and other fundraiser guests in violent scenes.

Ms Forster told the ABC she realised she was in trouble when she arrived outside the venue and heard protesters shout: “That’s Tony Abbott’s sister!”.

She said she tried to usher her partner Virginia Edwards towards the door when the crowd closed in, describing the incident as “scary”.

“It was extraordinary, it was a riot with people screaming in our faces, trying to spit at us, trying to punch us,” Ms Forster said.

“They were going absolutely berserk.”

Ignore the music, just skim through for the pictures:

But the ABC claims Forster was merely caught in fire from both sides:

Manus Island protesters clash with police as Christine Forster gets caught in crossfire.

“Caught in crossfire”? Not attacked by the Left?

Institutions that have been captured by the left in the long march cannot be resurrected except by evicting all the personnel. Once cultural Marxists get into an organization, they only hire fellow cultural Marxists.

Leftists in the West are egging themselves on towards more political violence.
