Have your say about human rights and freedoms in Australia

Tim Wilson


Take the AHRC online survey

The Australian Human Rights Commission is asking for feedback about human rights and freedoms in Australia. Please complete its online survey…


Here are most of my answers

If you like any of them, feel free to use / re-purpose them in your own response.


SECTION 2

Q: Overall, how well do you think the right to freedom of opinion and expression is protected in Australia?


Not at all protected


Q: Please explain why you provided this answer


While, by convention, freedom of speech and opinion are considered an
integral part of our culture, they’re not protected under our
constitution, and we don’t have a bill of rights protecting them.



Furthermore, we have a mainstream media that actively promotes misinformation in order to mislead its audience.


Q: Can you provide any examples of government legislation or policies that unduly restrict the right to freedom of expression?


Q: Can you provide positive examples of ways that the right to freedom of expression is advanced in Australia?


Mostly by individuals and the use of social media. I would have said
the Human Rights Commission, but after Tim Wilson’s appointment, I’m no
longer convinced. Anyone who thinks a man who wants to bring in the
water cannons to deal with peaceful protesters is an appropriate
appointment to a human rights organisation is deluded or serving someone
other than humanity. https://mobile.twitter.com/timwilsoncomau/status/127208106517213184

Q: What do you think we could do to better protect freedom of expression in Australia?


  • Dismiss Tim Wilson.
  • Resist all association with the IPA.
  • Fight the above examples of free speech injustice.
  • Support Freya Newman including any legal resources she requires.
  • Raise awareness about the disproportionately great airtime of the
    IPA on the ABC and the false journalistic bias of all media that results
    in climate change deniers getting equal airtime to scientists and
    others citing science.

SECTION 3

Q: Overall, how well do you think that the right to freedom of religion is protected in Australia?


Not at all protected


Q: Please explain why you provided this answer


If it were well protected, the government and Murdoch press wouldn’t
be able to get away with vilifying innocent Muslims at every turn.
Including ‘boat people’, the majority of whom are Muslims.



Q: What do you think we could do to better protect freedom of religion in Australia?


Take the PM to task about his treatment of Muslims and asylum seekers who come by boat.


SECTION 4

Q: Overall, how well do you think the right to freedom of association is protected in Australia?


Not at all protected


Q: Please explain why you provided this answer


SECTION 6

Q: Are there other rights and freedoms that you think should be better protected in Australia?


  • Freedom to use the internet without data retention.
  • The right to digital privacy. If the government or police think
    someone has done something wrong, they should have to get a warrant to
    access their computer.
