On 12 March this year The Conversation published this report on a federal member of parliament who said: “But not one person has contacted me arguing for abolition. It shows the feeling is very strong the other way.”
It wasn’t a member of the Australian Labor Party or the Greens that said that. It was Craig Laundy, a Liberal MP, who represents the electorate of Reid in New South Wales.
Here’s one thing you can do. You can send an email to Craig Laundy telling him why the repeal of section 18C is so important. I know many of you will be keen to make Laundy aware of just how strong the feeling is in favour of repeal.
Craig Laundy’s email address is: email@example.com.
Laundy has said that he “would like it to stay exactly as it is.”
