FED: Racist Speech Law Could be Eased

Tue 28 Feb 2017

Race hate laws could be changed to ban speech that harasses or intimidates people, but the decision to push for it will be up to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

A parliamentary inquiry into the Racial Discrimination Act will deliver its recommendation today, including options for changing section 18C, which currently bans speech that offends, insults, humiliates or intimidates someone based on race.

Fairfax media reports it will also suggest changes to section 18D, which provides protections for artistic, academic and journalistic work.
