Australia is the only Western liberal democracy that does not have a Bill of Rights
Repressive legislation, racism and the move to the extreme right, here and across the world, have resulted in the loss of democracy and human rights.
The Melbourne Unitarian Peace Memorial Church is hosting a forum on Sunday March 17 to promote a campaign for a Bill of Rights for Australia.
This is supported by a range of community, legal and religious organisations.
Speakers include Prof. Rob Watts (Professor of Social Policy RMIT), Prof. GillianTriggs (former President of the Australian Human Rights Commission) and Julian Burnside QC.
The forum will also include workshops for community participation.
