If you don’t defend freedom of speech, who will?

I personally support the work of the Institute of Public Affairs. Today I am asking you to do the same.

Please take a moment to watch this short message I recorded for the IPA:

The IPA did more than anyone to support me during my trial. If it wasn’t for the IPA Nicola Roxon’s anti-discrimination legislation, which would have made it illegal to “offend” someone, could now be law. And the IPA played a key role in stopping the Gillard government’s attack on the media.

The IPA gets no government funding. The IPA’s only funding comes from voluntary donations. To continue its great work fighting for freedom of speech for the rest of 2013 the IPA needs to raise $95,000.

Please consider making a generous donation to the IPA’s Freedom of Speech Fighting Fund today. Because the IPA wants to do more than just research, donations to the fund are not tax-deductible. We need a strong campaign to defend our rights – and with your support the IPA will be able to deliver even more wins, like repealing section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act. As I know personally, this is one of too many laws which restrict our free speech.

Thank you for supporting freedom of speech in Australia.
