My Submission to the Human Rights Policy Branch Re: Amendments to the Racial Discrimination Act 1975

by on 27 March, 2014

I encourage all freedom patriots to send in their own submission. Feel free to cherry pick anything I have written below. Make sure you get your submission in by COB Wednesday 30 April 2014.

To whom it may concern,

Article 19 from the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”

I support the proposed amendments stated in the draft exposure bill – Freedom of Speech (Repeal of S.18C) Bill 2014

Should the Freedom of Speech (Repeal of S.18C) Bill 2014 fail pass into law, then Australian’s will not have the right to freedom of opinion and expression as expressed by the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and instead will be on par with totalitarian regimes like China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Burma and Yemen who severely censor freedom of opinion and expression.

If freedom of opinion means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.

Thomas Jefferson, 3rd US President, was right when he said that “The liberty of speaking and writing guards our other liberties.”

So give me the right to free speech and I’ll use it to secure and protect all of my other human rights.
