Submission on exposure draft Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Freedom of Speech Repeal of S.18C) Bill 2014 - May 2014

The proposed amendments will dramatically narrow the definition of unlawful racist speech and the contexts in which racial vilification will be allowed are so broad as to include almost every context in which public racist abuse could occur. The Act will effectively be gutted removing vital protections against racial vilification that have worked well for 20 years.
