No hate speech
With your help, we changed the Prime Minister’s mind! We’ve shown Tony Abbott that Australia won’t stand for watering down racial hate laws.
In response to our campaign, Prime Minister Tony Abbott has abandoned planned changes to the Racial Discrimination Act.
The Government’s changes would have given the green light to racial hate speech and the Australian Greens were very proud to stand with the community and say we didn’t want to give bigots the go-ahead.
The Prime Minister’s backflip is a win for everyone who stands against racism and intolerance. We have shown that when we work together, we can change the direction of this Government.
Thank you to everyone who signed a petition, called their MP and put in a submission.
The Greens will continue to promote inclusion and acceptance and we will fight against hate and discrimination wherever we see it.
