Far-right group denied entry to Vic bar

A fair-right activist group has been denied entry to a Melbourne bar to discuss so-called "gang issues" among African youths.

Members of the True Blue Crew had organised the meeting for Cheltenham, in Melbourne's southeast, on Sunday afternoon to discuss "African of appearance gang issues" before the bar cancelled the booking.

The owner of Eddies Poolroom and Bar, who declined to be named, told AAP he accepted the booking not knowing who the group were and did not want to be affiliated with them.

The group later met at another nearby venue reportedly affiliated with the United Patriots Front.
