Hashtag War: Russian Trolls and the Project to Undermine Australian Democracy

Tom Sear, Michael Jensen

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle

Abstract

The car journey from Canberra airport to the parliamentary triangle is a necessary trip for Federal politicians. One route heads south along the Monaro Highway, passing Canturf, suppliers of the lawn that carpets the Parliament House roof. Canturf's rotating roadside promotional signage features cringe-worthy puns. In April 2017, Canturf erected a sign suggested by a Gundaroo farmer - 'Putin the seed and it comes up Trumps' - in reference to Russian digital manipulation of the 2016 US election.
