From the Sydney Morning Herald:
"2000 police but the beaches were empty"
Yesterday there were fresh attempts to build bridges between the torn communities. Australians from ethnic backgrounds will be encouraged to train as lifesavers under a $440,000 program announced by the Federal Government.
The three-year program will train about 70 people a year to create "ambassadors for Australian beach culture", Multicultural Affairs Minister John Cobb said at North Cronulla Surf Life Saving Club, where volunteers were bashed two weeks ago.
