Reinstate the Cranbourne billboard!

This petition had 8,118 supporters

Muslims are Australians too! We demand the reinstatement of the Cranbourne billboard featuring two girls wearing hijabs. The rolling electronic billboard is part of a Victorian Government campaign to promote Australia Day events in the city. QMS Media removed the section with the Muslim girls, after receiving threats and abuse. In removing the billboard, QMS has allowed right wing extremists to dictate what and who is Australian.
Cranbourne is a suburb in the City of Casey, in Melbourne's outer south-east. Just like the rest of Casey, Cranbourne is a proud multi-cultural suburb.
Casey Against Racism formed to resist Islamophobia in our region. We will not stand by while our Muslim friends, neighbours and workmates are denied their legitimate place in our society, including on its billboards!
