SYDNEY - A Sydney meeting of right-wing extremists went ahead Saturday despite the absence of the German rabble-rouser who was to have given the keynote speech.

The Australian government cancelled the visa of National Democratic Party (NDP) member Gerd Finkenwirth, who had to abort his trip after being told of the Immigration Department's action.

The NDP is known for holding rallies that attract thousands of right-wing zealots.

Three years ago the Australian government refused to grant a visa to NDP chairman Udo Voigt on the grounds that it was not in the public interest for him to visit the country.
