Australia: White terror: A special investigative series

White terror: A special investigative series from 7am

Yesterday we revealed the classified intelligence report detailing ASIO’s concerns that far-right groups might carry out a terrorist attack in order to “accelerate the race war”.

This story was part of 7am’s special investigative series “White terror”, released this week, which explores the aftermath of the Christchurch terrorist attacks.

In part one, we spoke to survivors of the attack and their families, who are still rebuilding their lives one year on.

In part two, we revealed the serious concerns Australia’s national spy agency has about the growing threat of far-right extremism here.

And today, in part three, we explore how Muslims in Australia are responding to the increased threat against them, and how they feel about politicians and sections of the media stoking division.

You can listen to all three episodes below. Make sure you don’t miss an episode by subscribing to 7am on Apple.
