A Very Ugly Turn Indeed

"The battle for Sydney's inner west took an ugly turn yesterday when police were called to investigate vandalism of Marrickville Greens' candidate Fiona Byrne's campaign posters that were defaced with swastikas. The Nazi symbols appeared on Ms Byrne's posters in Petersham and Enmore on Friday night, some scrawled with the words: 'Watch out for the Nazi'. Other threats have been made. Ms Byrne is the mayor of Marrickville Council, which controversially voted to boycott Israel 4 months ago. The boycott has sparked threats to other Marrickville councillors."
