The NATSILS make this submission to the Australian Government to express our opposition to the proposed changes to the Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Cth) (RDA) as outlined in the recently released Freedom of Speech (Repeal of s 18C) Bill 2014 Exposure Draft. Given that racial discrimination and vilification is a matter of critical importance to the Australian public, we are pleased that the Australian Government has now embarked on a public
consultation process in regards to the proposed changes through the release of the Exposure Draft.
