Policy initiative: Tackling racism and far right extremism

Description

Stopping hate speech.

In the wake of the Christchurch massacre we must act to stem the rising tide of Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, racism and bigotry in Australia. 

White supremacy and the emerging neo-nazi movement are taking a foothold right around the world, emboldened and encouraged by political leaders here in Australia and globally. These leaders have nurtured, encouraged and legitimised hate. Enough is enough. 

The Greens stand with the overwhelming majority of Australians, united against hatred and against the hate-speech that has dominated our politics and our public spaces for far too long. This hatred has not just targeted our migrant and refugee communities, but also First Nations peoples, women and our LGBTIQ+ community. It has to stop. 

The Greens have a plan for a united, respectful and decent society that welcomes and celebrates difference, and recognises that we are one common humanity.
