National advocacy organisation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander rights, ANTaR, expressed disbelief that government has established an inquiry to try to undermine protections against race hate.
Andrew Meehan, ANTaR National Director, said that the community had spoken very clearly in 2014 the last time government tried to wind back race hate protections, and government should take heed.
We are outraged at the publication of a racist cartoon in the Australian newspaper. The cartoon demeans Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and will cause enormous hurt after what has been a traumatic time for many First Peoples following the frightening footage of mistreatment of young Aboriginal people shown on Four Corners last week.
Today in advance of the weekend round of AFL, 150 organisations join together to call for renewed efforts to stamp out racism in sport and everyday life.
For too long, we have witnessed the poor treatment of Sydney Swans star and dual Brownlow medallist Adam Goodes at the hands of fans during AFL matches. A proud Ambassador of the “Racism. It Stops with Me” Campaign, Goodes is a strong advocate for standing up against racism and for issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
