Far-right nationalists are secretly filming Muslim women in hijabs before posting the footage online and branding them as ‘garbage bags’.
Anti-Muslim activists have posted video on their closed Infidel Brotherhood Victoria Facebook page showing groups of people enjoying a picnic on the waterfront at Geelong, south-west of Melbourne.
Footage taken at Eastern Park, overlooking Corio Bay, was posted on to the private ‘patriots’ Facebook page, which has 1,119 members.

‘Garbage bags walking around Geelong taking our air!!!,’ the post, seen by News Corp Australia, said.
A group member had written: ‘Exterminate.’
The threatening social media posts have been referred to the National Security Hotline, the Geelong Advertiser reports.
Geelong was home to 2,530 Muslims, or just 1.1 per cent of the regional industrial city’s population, in the 2016 Census, which was well below the national average of 2.6 per cent.
