Several soldiers linked to alt-right groups Australian Army has launched an investigation. A handful of Australian soldiers have been linked to neo-Nazi groups prompting an urgent investigation by the military. At least three soldiers are understood to have joined the armed forces after becoming members of a white supremacist group or communicating with them. One has close links to Operation Werewolf, an alt-right group that promotes Aryan supremacy and teaches its members unarmed combat training and hunting. (…) The soldier had completed an obstacle course for the Antipodean Resistance, a white supremacy group that promotes race wars. The Australian Security Intelligence Organisation has launched several investigations into the group since its formation in 2016. The alt-right organisation uses the slogan, ‘We’re the Hitlers you’ve been waiting for’. The group has been behind several racist campaigns and targeted schools with large ethnic populations, plastering posters saying, ‘Keep Australia White’. Members also spread false propaganda, linking homosexuality to paedophilia in the lead-up to the same sex marriage postal vote in 2017. The soldier who attended the training camp also socialised with two members of the National Socialist Network, the largest neo-Nazi group in Australia.
