Sydney, Jan.7 : A Japanese pro-whaling video condemning Australia as a racist nation using images of the infamous Cronulla riots has been launched on YouTube.
A Japanese pro-whaling video condemning Australia as a racist nation using images of the infamous Cronulla riots has been launched on YouTube.
The 10-minute video, with English and Japanese subtitles, accuses Australia of white supremacy, exclusionist nationalism, a racist ideology and of prejudice towards the Japanese.
It shows graphic images of slain dingoes, a wallaby being killed by a child bashing it against a ute, and one horrific scene in which an Australian-looking man takes a baby kangaroo from its mother's pouch and stomps on it in the dirt.
It also reproduces famous photographs of angry, young men lashing out violently during the Cronulla riots.
"Australians have to eliminate prejudice and racism against the Japanese. Don't forget Cronulla race riots! These riots show the xenophobia and white supremacy. The next victims are the Japanese?"
It also criticises the former White Australia policy and the poor standing of indigenous people.
"Aboriginals and Asians are still treated as second-class citizens," it says.
The video will inflame already high tensions between Australia and Japan over the whaling issue.
The Australian Government said no amount of bullying would make it support whaling. (ANI)
