WA POLICE are investigating a social media post that claims to show a white supremacist gathering in Kalgoorlie on Australia Day.
The Facebook post shows a group of people crowding around a homemade swastika flag in a backyard with the caption “Stay white Australia, Happy victory day”.
A screen shot of the post was shared by a Facebook user on January 27.
Those behind the website Welcome to Country claim the picture was taken in Kalgoorlie.
A WA Police spokesperson confirmed they are investigating the post.
The spokesperson said inciting racial harassment and possessing material that was likely to racially harass were offences under the WA Criminal Code.
Goldfields-Esperance District Police Acting Superintendent Tony Colfe told the ABC images like this would not be tolerated.
