Early last year, Crikey began a series of pocket guides to the far-right in Australia. Unfortunately recent events including a January 5 rally in St Kilda -- where more than 150 people, including some who performed Nazi salutes and carried SS helmets, expressed racist rhetoric against Africans -- have rendered the series depressingly out of date.

Now, with the help of some of Australia's preeminent fascist-watchers, we have honed in on groups affiliated with the rally in St Kilda to find out who they are, where they've come from and where they might be going.
