A woman who supports gay marriage racially taunted a man backing the ‘No’ case before running across a busy intersection to pull down his posters from traffic light poles.
The morning peak-hour confrontation took place at Wiley Park, in south-west Sydney, on Thursday morning as a man of Arabic appearance wore an ‘It’s OK to vote No’ vest on King Georges Road.
Standing on a traffic island at 7.30am, she racially abuses him holding a stack of ‘No’ case signs she has pulled down.

The gay marriage supporter also told the ‘No’ case man to ‘get the f***’ out of this country
‘Go home, back to la, la, la, la, la, la Arab land. Get out of the f*** our country,’ she says on a video posted to the Altcon News website.
‘Go change your own f***ed up country. Get the f*** out of ours.’
Before the vile abuse, the woman was caught on camera running down the middle of the busy main road and grabbing four ‘It’s OK to say No’ posters tied around a traffic light pole.
She then runs across the busy King Georges Road and Punchbowl Road intersection, to grab another set of ‘No’ posters as a male voice says: ‘Watch the road, love.’

The incident occurred in an area with a high Arabic and Muslim population.
Wiley Park is also next door to Lakemba, the home of Australia’s biggest mosque.
The latest abuse comes only three days after a ‘Yes’ case supporter at Chatswood, on Sydney’s North Shore, repeatedly swore at and racially abused ‘No’ supporters on busy Victoria Avenue.
‘I respect equal rights. People like you in this country are what are bringing this f***ing country down,’ he says.
‘You’ve come here. We’ve accepted you into this country.’
That incident has also occurred a week after a 38-year-old anarchist Hobart DJ wearing a ‘Yes’ badge, Astro Labe, allegedly headbutted former prime minister Tony Abbott after offering to shake his hand.
