Anti-Islam group Reclaim Australia has again chosen the wrong song to play at their rallies.
Reclaim Australia reportedly played the Hunters & Collectors song Holy Grail at a series of rallies held across Australia on Sunday.
The band’s frontman Mark Seymour said Hunters and Collectors oppose what Reclaim Australia stands for.
“I’ve just been informed that ‘Reclaim Australia’ are using ‘Holy Grail’ at their rallies. Let me be clear. ‘Reclaim Australia’ is a racist organisation,” Seymour said on Facebook.
“We stand together with refugees and asylum seekers the world over. We are opposed to bigotry, race hate and fascism. ‘Reclaim Australia’ has no place in Australian Society.”
Reclaim Australia previously came under fire from Cold Chisel frontman Jimmy Barnes, Midnight Oil and John Farnham for using their songs during rallies earlier this year.
