Organisations like Voices For Freedom and Reality Check Radio will come under intense scrutiny due to our views which are often in opposition to the Government, and because our email subscribers or radio listeners number more than 25,000 (although, were our numbers less than this, no doubt the Regulator would still deem VFF and RCR to pose “a significant risk of harm”).
Despite claims of being at arm’s-length, the proposal ultimately brings online information under Government control. It also amounts to regulation of public speech by proxy, making gatekeepers and foot soldiers out of platforms and industry.
We also consider that the types of harm and unsafe content described in the proposal are those which should already be reasonably reduced under the available laws.
Our easy to use submission template means that for as little as 5 minutes of your time, you can make your voice heard.
Please take action today. Do it for yourself. But also do it for future generations.
