Yassmin Abdel-Magied’s new Anzac Day call-out to back Lest we forget (Manus)


MUSLIM activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied has encouraged his followers to participate in a social media campaign to tweet a new statement on Anzac Day, which certainly increases eyebrows.

Abdel-Magied has approved a previous GetUp! CEO's invitation to Twitter for thousands of people to tweet "Let's Forget (Manus)" on Anzac Day next Wednesday.

Incoming Change.org National Director Sally Rugg tweeted last night: "What if thousands of us all tweeted" so we do not forget (script) next week on April 25 … "[19659003] The statement has been retweeted hundreds of times in less than 24 hours.

Ms Rugg followed up with her original tweet with a statement saying: "Anyone who seems this tweet is about refugees and the ANZAC day is missing the point: )

Abdel-Magied then retarded the statement Rugg first posted in his own words: "Do it."

Abdel-Magied shocked Australia with her Anzac Day gaffe last year when she wrote on Facebook: "Let's forget (Manus, Nauru, Syria, Palestine …). "

The former host of ABC 24's program Australia Wide changed the post simply to read" Read. We. Forget "and issued an apology.

" It was noted that my last post was disrespectful and therefore I reserve my mind, "she wrote.

Her latest controversial movement comes after she was" deported " after denying access to the United States last week with the wrong visa.

But that did not mean she missed the event she was going to talk.

The 27-year-old who moved from Australia to London last year, presented to the PEN World Voices Festival via Facebook live yesterday after being rejected in New York and unable to appear at the conference personally.

A video forum entitled "The M Word: No Country for Young Muslim Women ", highlighted her and American Muslim identity Amani Al-Khatahtbeh discussed the tribulations of being young, female Muslims.

Abdel-Magied made a sensational assertion that the situation would have changed differently if it was a white man . [19659003] "People said to me," It's not that big deal "and I think it's very different than going through something like someone who's used to understanding their place in the world versus one person who has never known a very real danger, "she said.

"If you are a privileged person, a white straight man goes through border security, you have a sense of security, this system has your back. You think the rule of law is there to protect you."

"I Do not think that the rule of law is there to protect me, I actually know that there are laws out there that find ways to make life harder for people like me.

"A border control person who is rude and aggressive to me may end up being shot so they do not go to prison. That's the risk we're talking about, it's not just a discomfort for a couple of hours." [19659003] The former young Queenslander of the year also revealed why she felt she had to leave Australia, the country where she grew up and said she was not yet to find a place in the world where she felt appreciated.

"Part of the reason I'm in London was because I was attacked in the Australian press, despite being Australian and having been raised there and proudly representing Australia all over the world," she said.

"But the reality is that when you go beyond the limits of what people think is acceptable, they're not okay. They can not handle it. 19659003]" They really turn you on if you are in a western country or in a majority of muslim countries.

"There is no country for young Muslim women, where they know they will be completely safe, valued and fitting at least."

She has previously compared Australia to being like an "abusive boyfriend."
