Senator Fraser Anning’s views have no place in the government of our democratic and multicultural country. Within the bounds of Australian law, we request that he be pushed to resign from his position as Senator, and if appropriate, be investigated by law enforcement agencies for supporting right wing terrorism.
- On the 15th of March, 50 innocent people were slaughtered in their place of worship. Fraser Anning, under the banner of Senator, made multiple offensive statements about this attack. He said ‘The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program that allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place’. And ‘Today’s shootings in Christchurch highlight the growing fears within our community in both Australia and New Zealand over the increasing Muslim presence.’
- Fraser Anning referenced ‘The Final Solution’ in his maiden speech to parliament. A direct reference to genocide during WW2.
- Fraser Anning was elected on dishonest grounds. He received the position of Senator based on his inclusion in One Nation and following the expulsion of a One Nation Senator for dual citizenship. He resigned from One Nation within an hour of being elected. He received only 19 primary votes.
We call on the Australian government to assist in demanding a resignation from this man who blames victims for their own violent deaths, and uses references to genocide to further his hateful agenda. There is no place in Australian government for Neo-Nazis. There is no place for bigotry. There is no place for hate speech.
