Episode 05

In this week’s episode of Fridays with Francis, we take a dive into history to discuss the freedoms that Australians may be taking for granted.

Between 1788 and 1868, about 1 in every 45 convicts transported to Australia from Britain and Ireland were political prisoners. These men and women brought with them the ideals of liberty, democracy, and republicanism, which have become ingrained in our national psychology and culture.

Their sacrifice meant our freedom and we shouldn’t take it for granted.

There are three areas of inquiry currently being undertaken by the Australian government:

  1. A review into Australia’s human rights framework.
  2. A new religious discrimination bill.
  3. An inquiry into religious schools and other educational institutions.

Protecting the freedom that we have inherited, and passing it on to our children, is worth fighting for.
