SCoA Submission to Inquiry into Freedom of Speech in Australia: December 2016

SCoA considers that the current provisions within the Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Cth) (RDA), the subject of this Inquiry, provide a basis for respect and tolerance which are core to any community and are essential in a multicultural democracy. As such, on behalf of our members, SCoA urges the Inquiry exercise extreme caution when considering recommendations to reform Section 18C and 18D of the RDA. Submission released in December 2016.
