The Albanese Government is proposing the Combating Misinformation and Disinformation Bill, which would see the government define what truth is and give power to the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) and online platforms (META, YouTube) to enforce it.
This bill would result in the government being the ultimate authority of truth. The government and mainstream media would be exempt from the rules of this bill.
Please call your MP to voice your concerns about this Bill.
MPs do not receive many calls, so when they get quite a few they understand the community is concerned. Usually, your call is answered by someone in the office who makes a record of your call. Just give your first name, suburb and state your concerns.
Some talking points:
- I am calling in regard to the Communications Legislation Amendment (Combatting Misinformation and Disinformation) Bill 2023
- No Government should be the authority of truth.
- No Government should limit freedom of speech.
