Bikers banned from Australia — arriving for Gypsy Jokers 50th anniversary

The Australian border police continue a proactive crackdown on members of outlaw motorcycle clubs trying to visit the country. This time it was several members of the Gypsy Joker M.C. stopped cold at the airport. It was terrible timing for them. The Gypsy Jokers are an old school biker club formed on April Fools Day 1956 in San Francisco. Three years later, Gypsy Jokers started in Australia, making 2019 the 50th anniversary of the club Downunder.

Gypsy Jokes came from around the world to celebrate but a number of European members were caught at the border. Two German members, a member from a Norway chapter and two associates from Spain when their colors were discovered in their luggage. The men had been previously granted visas but after interviews with border police at the airport in Perth, their visas were canceled on the basis they presented a risk to the health, safety or good order of the Australian community. The men were held in the Perth Immigration Detention Centre pending their deportation.

They came a long way, but they ended up missing the party.

Previous crackdowns have stopped Bandidos and Hells Angels and other biker club members from entering the country. I document some this in other of my videos.
