Albanese Government to outlaw Nazi salute and hate symbols
The Albanese Government will ban the public display of the Nazi salute, making clear there is no place in Australia for those who seek to glorify hatred.
In June, we introduced legislation to criminalise the public display of, and trade in, Nazi hate symbols.
The Counter-Terrorism Legislation Amendment (Prohibited Hate Symbols and Other Measures) Bill sends a clear message that there is no place in Australia for acts and symbols that glorify the horrors of the Holocaust and terrorist acts.
Amendments to be introduced tomorrow will strengthen our legislation by making the Nazi salute a criminal offence under Commonwealth law.
The amendments will ensure that no one will be allowed to glorify or profit from acts and symbols which celebrate the Nazis and their evil ideology.
There is absolutely no place in Australia for hatred, violence and anti-Semitism.
