Socialists selling flag-burning kits

`A socialist youth organisation wants university students nationwide to buy their flag-burning kits next week to show their anger at the federal government.

The group, Resistance, said the kits, containing an Australian flag, a lighter, a fire-lighting cube and Resistance pamphlets, would be sold at university orientation week for $5 each.

“The flag-burning kit displays the sentiment that many young people feel, given the Australian government’s racist refugee policy, its treatment of indigenous people, its use of violence against protesters, its support of US foreign policy and its oppressive military role in the Asia Pacific,” Resistance said in a statement.’
