Malcolm Turnbull, who was abused by socialist activists during a disastrous performance at Sydney University

During a disastrous performance at his old university, Malcolm Turnbull is berated by megaphone-wielding socialist activists: “Blood on your hands!”

  • Activists drowned out Malcolm Turnbull in wild protest at Sydney University
  • Turnbull stood awkwardly as a protester yelled in his face with a megaphone
  • The Socialist Alliance opposed the former prime minister as a guest of the Sydney Uni Law Society

Socialist activists have crashed a speech by a former Australian Prime Minister to savagely berate him and his audience.

Malcolm Turnbull was interrupted by screaming, chanting and shrieking protesters from the Socialist Alliance who stormed his appearance at the University of Sydney legal speakers row just after 1pm on Thursday.

An aggressive male protester shouted, “How dare you come here?”. through a bullhorn at a shaken Turnbull, despite standing directly in front of him.

He also intimidated an assistant wearing a hijab and tried to defuse the situation.

The same man stood briefly on the podium and told the stunned audience, “Get back to Mosman,” before turning to Turnbull and shouting, “Get back to Wentworth, too.”

Turnbull could not be heard over the megaphone and vocals, even with a microphone, shrugged and appeared embarrassed.

Eventually the NSW Police had to be called.

They barricaded the entrance to the outhouse and Turnbull’s speech was posted to an online platform.

Earlier, University of Sydney officials, including two men wearing safety vests, appeared unsure how to handle the heated protests.

As the protesters chanted “Malcolm Turnbull out, we know what you’re about,” the exact points they made were hard to decipher amid the shouting and confusion.

But they appeared to be targeting Turnbull’s presence directly as an invited speaker for Sydney University Law School’s alumni speaker series.

A woman, again using a megaphone, told the audience that he “didn’t have anything of value to say for the next hour.”

“He’s a total contrast to the other people who have been invited to this series,” she claimed.

When Turnbull finally had a few seconds to respond, he told the audience the protesters had “demonstrated how little respect they have for any of you by coming here with megaphones.”

He was immediately shouted down.

Turnbull graduated from Sydney University with a law degree in 1978 before going to Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship.
