Australian Labor senator Dastyari racially abused

Australian Labor senator Sam Dastyari was racially abused late on Wednesday last week at a Melbourne pub by a group of men belonging to far-right group Patriot Blue. Calling Dastyari a “terrorist” and “little monkey”, they told him to return to Iran, his homeland. They filmed the incident and posted it on the Facebook page of the group. He blamed the incident on the rise of radical right party One Nation led by Senator Pauline Hanson.
