Australians are offering to ride to work with Muslims if they are scared of anti-Islamic sentiment after a gunman claiming to be part of the Islamic State took hostages in Sydney on Monday morning.
The campaign is trending on Twitter under the hashtag #Illridewithyou, with people posting their route to work either via public transportation or private cars.
Muslims can tweet back if they want to share the route to work.
The campaign is not limited to Sydney or the New South Wales, but is trending in the whole of Australia:
If you reg take the #373 bus b/w Coogee/MartinPl, wear religious attire, & don’t feel safe alone: I’ll ride with you. @ me for schedule.
