Violent clashes at Milo Yiannopolous’ Troll Academy Tour
Milo Yiannopoulos is not new to sparking controversy internationally. The English political commentator associated with the ‘alt right’ movement, in fact prides himself on being subversive in his advocation for free speech and speaking truth to power. But last night an event, part of his ‘Troll Academy’ Tour in Melbourne, sparked a violent clash between protesters from both sides of politics that ultimately had to be dispersed by police with pepper spray. So what was the catalyst for such a violent clash between protesters and what can we expect as Mr Yiannoplous continues to tour around the country?
Megan Palin, Senior Journalist at News Corp Australia, chatted to us about Mr Yiannopoulos’ visit.
