Public Seminar New Anti-Terror Laws:
What do they mean for Muslim communities?
- What are the implications of these new anti-terror laws for the Muslim community?
- What do the new sedition offences mean?
- Will we still be allowed to say Iraqis have the right to resist occupation?
- Will we be allowed to comment on and criticise government policy?
- What impact do the new charity related offences have for people who may inadvertently give money to the wrong people, and what does it mean for my organisation?
- What about the new ability for the Government to ban organisations on the basis that they "advocate" terrorism?
This seminar, directed towards Muslim organisations, activists as well as individuals, will provide an opportunity to find out exactly what these laws mean in practice and how they will affect people’s day-to-day lives.
AMCRAN has invited Lecturer Dr Ben Saul from UNSW and Gilbert + Tobin Centre of Public Law to address the public seminar about these issues. There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions.
