Incitement submission is acknowledged by NZHRC

On Thursday 5th of August we emailed in our submission to the New Zealand Human Rights Commission on the new Hate Speech laws that local Muslims are demanding after March 15th. So it’s with great appreciation that we can say that our incitement submission is acknowledged officially by the NZHRC. You can read the full submission we made via an emailed .pdf here:

We would like to thank all who proof-read and made suggestions for improvement of the original text of our submission on the Proposals against incitement of hatred and discrimination. It’s thanks to you that now our incitement submission is acknowledged by the NZHRC!

We’d also like to thank those who make regular contributions of $5 or more every few months, it’s of great encouragement that others feel this message is worth supporting.

Our email to the New Zealand Human Rights Commission was as follows:

To whom this may concern,
