The government’s aggressive push to change Section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act – a crucial safeguard against racism and hate speech – is another attack on multicultural Australia and the latest capitulation by Malcolm Turnbull to his rabid right wing, One Nation and a narrow section of the media.
You only need to look at the politicians pushing to water down Section 18C – Malcolm Turnbull, Peter Dutton, Pauline Hanson, George Brandis – to realise this is a cultural and ideological war masquerading as a free speech crusade. The Greens say NO to racism, and will never accept these attempts to make it easier for Australians to be racist. We stand shoulder-to-shoulder with multicultural Australia against bigotry and hate speech.
