After the train arrived at North Sydney station, members of the public were ordered to leave the train while police escorted the man away.

“This threat was stopped before a very ugly confrontation on the streets of Sydney. There is no place for this kind of fascism, neo-Nazism or far-right extremism on this great day, Australia Day,» Minns told reporters.

«The vast, overwhelming majority of people who live in (this) state would absolutely reject any notion or idea that this group of far-right extremists and neo-Nazis is needed on our national day.»

Ahead of the incident, the NSW group issued a public safety order to stay away from Australia Day events.

Mr Minns said such behavior was not welcome in NSW and anyone «trying to reconvene and do it again» would be met with the «overwhelming force of NSW Police».

«No normal person wears a balaclava, let alone on Australia Day on the public transport system,» he said.

“If it wasn’t so threatening, it would be completely ridiculous.

It follows the NSW Government’s recent announcement that it will conduct a review of section 93Z of the Crimes Act, which regulates laws against publicly threatening or inciting violence against someone on the basis of race, religious belief or affiliation.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese joined in condemning the group’s behavior on Saturday.

He said he was «appalled» by the images.

«I don’t want to see people in balaclavas, dressed in black from head to toe, engaged in neo-Nazi activity in this country,» he said.

«It has no place and all decent people have rightly condemned it».

Following the public incidents involving the National Socialist Network, the chief executive of Australian Jewry, co-chief executive Alex Ryvchin, said he was «heartbroken and concerned by the return of genocidal anti-Semitism».

He said recent public displays of anti-Semitism should be «a source of shame» for society and was «a deep collective reflection on how little we have learned».

«We remind you that the desire to destroy the Jews has not diminished, only the means to carry it out have been temporarily suppressed,» said Mr. Ryvchin.

«The audacity of anti-Semites in Australia, the freedom of mainstream online influencers, neo-Nazi cells and supporters of jihadist terror to incite against our community with virtually no consequences is particularly chilling.»
