Protecting freedom of speech in Australia

Alternative Law Journal
Volume 39 Issue 4 (Dec 2014)

Abstract: Freedom of speech is readily accepted in Australia as an important human right. It is easy to understand why. Australian democracy depends upon citizens being able to discuss the policies and fitness for office of those vying for political power. Once elected, representatives must also be able to freely deliberate about the making and operation of laws and policies.
