URGENT! . . . will you share with your network, urge the members to take immediate action?
Malcolm Turnbull has appointed Philip Ruddock to chair a “Freedom of Religion” panel — but where is the SECULAR voice to put forward the Freedom FROM religion viewpoint? We need community action to make this point!
Initial direct action can be for each of us to phone Turnbull’s office (02) 6277 7700 to state there must be a secular voice on Ruddock’s panel.
We all must circulate this approach as a first step to our group and individual networks. The panel currently consists of Human Rights Commission president Rosalind Croucher, former Federal Court judge Annabelle Bennett and Australian Jesuit priest and human rights lawyer Frank Brennan. The panel is scheduled to hand down recommendations to “safeguard” Religious Freedoms by March 2018.
