A Cronulla riots “memorial” rally organised by a far-right party has been prohibited by a NSW Supreme Court Judge.

The event, organised by the leader of the Party for Freedom group, Nick Folkes, was scheduled to occur this Saturday at the Don Lucas Reserve.

A last minute request to prohibit the rally was launched by the NSW Police Commissioner and confirmed by Justice Christine Adamson on Thursday.

This Friday marks the 10th anniversary of the racially motivated violence that began in Cronulla following the assault of two volunteer lifesavers in 2005.

The assault, allegedly carried out by young men of Middle Eastern heritage, sparked racial tensions that soon erupted in many violent attacks throughout Cronulla.

Within a few days, more than 5,000 people became involved in the riots that began to spill over into surrounding suburbs, gaining international media attention.

According to the Facebook event posted by the Party for Freedom, Saturday’s “memorial” rally is both a commemoration of the riots and a chance to reveal “the other side of the story.”

“The Cronulla Riots represents a time ‘when Aussies stood their ground’ against years of oppression and intimidation committed by southwest Sydney gangs,” the event description reads.

“Incompatible immigration coupled with multiculturalism has been a complete failure and will regrettably bring more troubles to our once prosperous and harmonious shores.

“The upcoming tenth Cronulla Riots anniversary is a fitting time to bury multiculturalism.”

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, spokesman for the NSW Police, Ian Temby QC, told the court that police were concerned the rally risked generating more violence.

"We make clear that we are not basing our case on the views that are held by Folkes and others, and we are not basing our case on the expression of those views," Temby said.

"We are basing our case on the rally and its likely consequences."

The Sydney Morning Herald also reports that Mr. Folkes’ lawyer said the effect of the ruling meant that Folkes risked arrest if he attended the rally, which is currently still going ahead.

Folkes’ lawyer also argued that it would be in the best interest of the police to allow his client to appear at the event.

"There's likely to be a large gathering of people at Cronulla. All the intelligence suggests that that will happen," he said.

"They'll be looking to somebody--not only the police, but someone from the party--to lead them and to assist police."

Justice Adamson’s ruling comes with a simultaneous application against the Party for Freedom from both the Sutherland Shire Council and Muslim community leader, Jamal Rifi, under the Racial Discrimination Act.

Rifi’s lawyer told the court that the Supreme Court’s order to prohibit the rally was not sufficient, asking for the official cancellation of the event on the group’s Facebook page.

The Facebook event is currently still active and has 188 users on the ‘attending’ list.
