Nyadol Nyuon is a well-known South-Sudanese refugee, now a lawyer and public speaker. She is living evidence that Australia is a decent and tolerant country. Her own biography proves that.
- Nyadol Nyuon moved here in 2005. The right-wing Liberal Howard Government granted her refugee status.
- She educated herself in Australian educational institutions.
- She found work with Australian employers at one of Australia’s top law firms.
- Australian media organisations regularly give her a platform.
Nyadol did all the right things, and Australia’s institutions rewarded her.
Many in her community ignored her approach.
Beginning in 2012, crime in Victoria’s South Sudanese community has skyrocketed. Young members of that community have become notorious for home invasions, carjackings, street robberies, armed robberies and assaults.
The situation became so severe that in 2018 Victoria Police created a dedicated African-Australian taskforce to address this never-ending Victorian crime wave.
It was also in 2018 that Nyadol used this crime wave to grow her media profile.
Her message was simple: It’s the media’s fault. It’s Australia’s fault. Australia is racist. The media only reports negative news and are harassing her community by overemphasising the race of the criminals.
Nyadol has never blamed the actual perpetrators.
The fear of ‘ethnic’ gangs in Australia isn’t new, but the appearance of Sudanese people – “very tall and very dark” – adds another layer to it, The problem of a few young people was being made to be the problem of everybody who happens to have a black skin. All of us, especially South Sudanese, felt as if we were under siege. It was constant, constant negative media coverage.”
Nyadol used this deflection to expand her resume even further: she became a paid speaker with a speaking agency.
She became a political activist who targeted ‘right-wing extremists’ –– probably why she banned me on twitter.
In this activist mode, Nyadol Nyuon created a petition calling to ban Gavin McInnes from Australia –– he was to come here for a speaking tour with Tommy Robinson. Nyadol travelled to Parliament House to deliver the petition. Neither McInnes nor Robinson ended up coming –– and Nyadol took credit for it.
She told The Hill:
I’m happy that women, non-whites, certain members of the LGBTI communities don’t have to live in an atmosphere of fear after these individuals are allowed to come in, or from the fear of what that might suggest to them.”
As Nyadol’s profile has grown, so too has crime in Victoria’s South Sudanese community.
In a June exit interview, Victoria’s Chief Police Commissioner Graham Ashton said:
It hasn’t gone away. It still occurs. We’ve still got offending in that way going on. It’s still occurring regularly.”
Despite this permanent crime wave, Nyadol still avoids the situation’s root cause: dysfunctional and criminal behaviour by South Sudanese youths and her community’s failure to stop it.
She continues to change the subject.
Last week, when speaking on behalf of BLM, she claimed Australia’s leaders don’t tell black kids they matter.
But there is one area she can’t avoid.
Nyadol has a brother named Gach.
In 2016 she said she is a mentor to him. She wanted him to play for the AFL. And he ended playing for the AFL –– joining the Essendon Football Club as a rookie.
The media wrote positive stories about him, and Twitter verified his account.
Gach’s story doesn’t end there.
On JUNE 11 2020, 3 days after Nyadol appeared on ABC’s Q and A Victoria Police issued a public notice that there was an arrest warrant issued for Gach Nyadol.
Gach was wanted for armed robbery and assault –– the same crimes with which the South Sudanese are disproportionately committing. The same crimes Nyadol has consistently been blaming on everyone else.
Gach failed to appear for his court hearing.
This time the mainstream media left out any connection between him and ‘his mentor’ sister.
Gach’s sister Nyadol is yet to publicly comment on her brother and his alleged violent crimes, despite being a prolific user of social media.
These are the legitimate questions she must answer:
- What role did ‘right-wing extremism’ or racism play in Victoria Police issuing an arrest warrant for her brother Gach?
- What role did ‘right-wing extremism’ or racism play in Gach declining to go to court for armed robbery and assault?
- When and if Gach is convicted, did Gach commit armed robbery and assault because of ‘right-wing extremism’ or racism?
- If it turns out Gach’s offending had nothing to do with ‘right-wing extremism’ or racism, what explains it?
- If Australia’s institutions are racist against people like Gach, why did he get bail for serious crimes such as armed robbery and assault?
- If Australia is a racist country that discriminates against South Sudanese people like Gach, why is a South Sudanese person like Nyadol so successful?
- Based upon the available evidence: who poses a higher risk to the Australian community –– Gach, or Tommy Robinson and Gavin McInnes?
We await your answers, Nyadol.
