Criminalise Hate Speech.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

We have become too tolerant of intolerance. Abusive or threatening speech that expresses prejudice against a group of individuals, particularly their gender, sexuality, race is increasingly dangerous. This has been demonstrated so horribly in Christchurch. It is not an overaction and does no erode the fundamental right to free speech. The law has never protected all forms of speech, such as defamation.

Let’s recognise this and outlaw hate speech. We can do this with a simple amendment to the Crimes Act 1961.
