The Abbott government has proposed drastic changes to Australia’s current anti-terrorism laws.These laws, if enacted, will have massive ramifications on the rights of all Australians, especially targeting Islamic communities.
A community forum was held to address these concerns, and to organise a fightback against the amendments being passed into law.
Speakers on the night:
Adam Bandt MP, Greens Deputy Leader and Federal Member for Melbourne
Professor Jude McCulloch, Criminology, Monash University
Ghaith Krayem, Secretary, Islamic Council of Victoria
Colin Jacobs, Electronic Frontiers Australia
Rob Stary, Civil Rights Lawyer
