In the government’s hierarchy of values, is free speech at the top?

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle

Abstract

The federal government has indicated that it is considering repealing an exemption in the Competition and Consumer Act that provides for boycotts of companies on environmental grounds. The government is concerned at preventing boycotts such as GetUp’s 2011 campaign against Harvey Norman. Customers were urged to boycott the store to encourage it to stop stocking furniture made from Australian native forests.
