UPDATE! National Alliance of Australian peak organisations against violence against women joins us in our campaign calling on Immigration Minister Morrison to revoke visa
Immigration Minister Scott Morrison has been hearing from us a lot lately. That is because there’s been just too many misogynistic rap artists granted entry into Australia. First we wrote requesting to have Tyler, the Creator‘s visa revoked. Then we brought attention to the woman-hating lyrics and pimping of Snoop Dogg. Now we have joined with a growing body of anti-violence organisations in an appeal to Minister Morrison to act in the interests of women and children and bar rapper Eminem from inciting violence against women.

After our call to action to stop pro-rape US rapper Tyler the Creator from performing in Australia we were inundated with messages of support. Our call to action was forwarded far and wide and shared on social media. The response was amazing. Men and women, young and old were taking action.

NSW Police have confirmed they are investigating a sexual assault at a gig where US rapper Tyler, the Creator was performing.
A NSW Police spokesman confirmed it was investigating a sexual assault report made by a woman during a concert at the Enmore Theatre on Thursday night. He said no formal statement had been taken yet.
Collective Shout has uploaded a YouTube video of US rap artist Tyler the Creator engaging in a vicious tirade against a young female activist during a Sydney all ages gig last night. The footage was recorded by a Collective Shout supporter in the audience.
The 24-year-old anti-violence against women activist has been engaged in the campaign of grassroots movement Collective Shout against the Australian tour of Tyler Gregory Okonma aka Tyler, the Creator. Collective Shout has called on Immigration Minister Brendan O’Connor to revoke his visa.
Has Tyler the Creator breached his Visa conditions?
Collective Shout has drawn the attention of Immigration Minister the Hon. Brendan O'Connor to a series of rape and other threats from fans of US rap artist Tyler the Creator. We believe these threats have been fuelled by the artist’s abuse of our actions online. We are asking the Minister to examine whether Tyler the Creator has violated the terms of his visa conditions.

Collective Shout spokesperson Melinda Liszewski was interviewed by Spencer Howson for ABC local radio about the campaign calling on Eatons Hill Hotel to cancel misogynist pro-rape rapper Tyler the Creators show.
Eatons Hill Hotel declined to be interviewed for the program.
“We’ve asked the Eatons Hill Hotel to come on air they spoke to us a couple of years ago when they launched and they were happy to tell everyone then that they were one of the biggest hotels in australia…it was ok when it was a good news story for them but they’re not coming on the program this morning to talk with us.” - Spencer Howson
