Fears held for Eureka memorials


The Australia First Party has raised vandalism concerns for Ballarat's Eureka monuments including the old cemetery memorial and Eureka memorial gardens.

It comes as statues around the world have becomes targets including two busts in Ballarat's Prime Ministers Avenue which were recently spray painted by vandals.
President of the party Dr Jim Saleam says a wave of statue vandalism by extreme elements has swept the country.
"This is all a decided 'culture wars' attack upon Australia's European identity," Dr Saleam said.
