This is a joint submission by Maat’s Method and Australians for Science and Freedom addressing the proposed new ACMA powers to combat misinformation and disinformation (the Communications Legislation Amendment (Combatting Misinformation and Disinformation) Bill 2023).
The Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts is currently seeking feedback on the Misinformation Bill. If you are opposed to this bill we encourage you to have your say via this link.
You can download the Maat’s Method/ASF joint submission below. Please share this submission around to educate the public about the Bill. You can also use the submission as a guide to create your own – although your submission does not need to be detailed.
The main goal is to show the Department, and the Federal Government generally, that Australians will not accept such a brazen imposition on our fundamental human rights, which that Government has covenanted into protecting. We can do that by making as many submissions as possible.
The deadline for submissions is 6 August 2023.
