According to NineThomas Seawell, who heads the far-right National Socialist Network, arrived at the Melbourne office with an unidentified companion and demanded to meet with the program staff.
Seawell’s companions filmed the scene as guards escorted the pair from the building. The video was posted online.
“So now the guards have decided to force us away and try to touch our property,” Seawell tells the camera as he leaves the building.
The guards chase Seawell outside and tell him where to shoot.
“That white line-you can go there and shoot. Are you okay?” He says.
Next, the person with the camera uses a racial slur to tell the guards “Dance Monkey, Dance”.
“Be careful. I’m not a dance monkey. Be careful,” the guard replies.
At this point the camera is so close to the guards that we can only see the torso, so we don’t know exactly what will happen next, but things get worse rapidly.
“You don’t touch me,” says Sewell’s colleagues. Shortly thereafter, Seawell appears to have hit the guards and threw multiple punches.
The guard falls to the ground, and Sewell stands on him and holds him down. I can hear the general public yelling to Sewell, “Leave him.”
After a while, the guards stand up again and confront Seawell.
“Hey, hey, no no no. Hey, back off. Stop,” says one witness.
“You put your hand on me and come back,” Seawell tells the guards.
“Back off. You can’t put your hand on someone. You played with the wrong person.”
The video ends when Sewell walks away from the building and his T-shirt is torn.
The guards were taken to the hospital by ambulance.
Victorian police Parents That officer Called to the address At the Docklands following “reports of a man being assaulted”.
“It is believed that a stranger approached the victim and was assaulted at a store on Burke Street around 5 pm,” police said.

Current events Last night’s report on Sewell’s organization came in a broader talk about the UK-based group Sonnnkrieg Division. Interior Minister Peter Dutton has accepted to name ASIO’s recommendations “terrorist organizations.”
The Sonnenkrieg Division has been outlawed in the United Kingdom after several members have been imprisoned for terrorist crimes.
“They have a presence that we are particularly worried about in the UK, but their reach reaches the hearts of young people and Australians here,” Dutton said.
The program took images of about 40 men associated with the National Socialist Network, hiking the Grampians in Victoria on the weekend of Australia Day, raising their arms in Nazi salutes, and burning the cross.
The footage showed them chanting the “Ku Klux Klan.”Witness said Current events She also heard the group advocating “Hail Hitler” and “white supremacy.”
In another video uploaded after yesterday’s incident, Seawell talks to the camera from inside the car, but his shirt is still torn, claiming he and his companions are victims.
“We were just arguing. We were attacked by a guard outside in front of the Channel Nine office,” he says.
“I went there with the photographer and talked to some of the producers and editors. They refused to come out and talk to us. It shows the ethics of their journalism.
“The guards asked us to leave, and after the conversation we decided to leave. We went out and he attacked the photographer while he was out. He was the photographer. I grabbed my neck.
“From the photographer’s rational self-defense, I disabled the attacker to prevent him from being crushed.
“We set out in a hurry as more guards came out and it seemed they were going to attack us.”
Sewell said he hopes to “probably get the police’s attention soon.”
