Rise Up Australia Party took to the streets of Dandenong yesterday to campaign for the upcoming Victoria State Election. Around 30-40 party members were wearing RUA Party T-shirts, led by National President Daniel Nalliah, who is also the Upper House Lead Candidate for South East Metropolitan Victoria
Rosalie Crestani the Second Upper House Candidate for the region, who is also a Councillor from the city of Casey, along with Lord Christopher Monckton, a former adviser to former PM Margret Thatcher, also joined in the campaign.
Dandenong in Victoria, which is one of the most Multi-Ethnic cities in the world and has a very large population of Muslims, was handpicked for this campaign to speak to people about the importance of keeping Australia Australian and to call on people to integrate into Australian way of life and culture.
As the RUAP team spoke to people one on one and shared the party policy principles, the response from the general public was overwhelmingly positive. Almost everyone received the party brochures, and many stopped to learn more about RUAP.
When asked whether they agreed to Islamic Sharia Law, almost every one responded NO. Even some Muslims said, “We left our country because of Sharia Law. We don’t want it here.” When asked what they thought of the burqa, most people said that they did not approve of the face being fully covered.
Mr Nalliah interviewed one Muslim man. You may click the link below to watch what he had to say. It was very interesting.
Several media outlets were present taking photos and interviewing people and party members.

The campaign was very fruitful and exciting as many people are very unhappy with both major parties and are looking to vote for the minor parties in this election.
