Violence erupts at Cronulla

`Three people have been arrested and three others assaulted in renewed violence at Sydney’s Cronulla beach, NSW Police say.

Scuffles have been breaking out since about midday (AEDT) when about 5000 people, some yelling racist chants, converged on the beach where racial tension and disputes between beach users flared last week. [..]

It was not clear if any of the arrests related to earlier witness reports of at least three men being pursued and attacked as they tried to get away from angry members of the crowd chasing them on foot. [..]

As the crowd moved along the beach and foreshore area today, one man on the back of a ute began to shout “No more Lebs” – a chant picked up by the group around him.

Others in the crowd, carrying Australian flags and dressed in Australian shirts, yelled “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie … Oi, Oi, Oi”.’

    Is it just me or does it feel as rather frightening – all this racial hatred exploding in such a fashion?
