AN ANTI-ISLAM party has launched a branch in Bundaberg saying the religion is a threat to people living in the city.

The Australian Liberty Alliance held its first public meeting in Bundaberg last night where about 50 people attended.

Senate candidate Bernard Gaynor spoke to residents at the Avenell Heights Community Hall telling them of the party's plan to stop the "Islamisation of Australia, address rising national debt, support families and repeal laws limiting freedom of speech".

Mr Gaynor, the party's Queensland senate candidate, has been travelling across Queensland spreading the message that Islam is a violent religion.

"Islam is a threat to the security of Australia, whether it be in Martin Place or in Bundaberg," Mr Gaynor said.

"Islam is a political ideology that encourages violence and is incompatible with our Western democratic culture."

"It is completely inappropriate the the Queensland government would put its logo on flyers promoting Islam in Bundaberg."

"This is a waste of taxpayer funds and follows similar abuses in other regional location. The Queensland government has funded an open mosque day in Gladstone, even though there is no mosque there."

The Australian Liberty Alliance has also formed support groups in Mackay, Rockhampton and Gladstone this week.

It now has local committees operating from Cairns to the Gold Coast.
