Live Tweets: Hotham Community Forum

Yesterday night,  Azlan Petra (@azlanpetra) sat on @TheTwoChairs and live tweeted at Hotham Community Forum for the proposed repeal to Racial Discrimination Act 1975.

The live tweets showcase the voice of many concerned communities who are affected by the proposed changes. The federal government focuses their sight on the ideals of free speech but are blind to the realities  of the people who experience racism and racial vilification in their lives.


Here are some of the highlights.
You can read the whole conversation through our Storify.

There are less then two days left, have you written to your local Mp and submitted your voice to the Attorney General?

You have till Wednesday 30th of April to write a letter to your AG. Remember when you email to them, your letter won’t be released to the public, so make sure you cc a copy to your local MP.
