Labor welcomes bill to ban Nazi salute

Tasmanian Labor has welcomed the tabling of a bill which includes banning the display of Nazi symbols and Nazi gestures including the Nazi salute.

Labor fought for the inclusion of banning physical gestures, like the Nazi salute, after the original drafting of the bill did not go far enough to protect Tasmanians from hate related crime.

There is no place in Tasmania for abhorrent behaviour that causes division within our community.

The scenes that unfolded on the steps of the Victorian Parliament this month were deeply worrying and should never be allowed to happen in our state, or anywhere.

Tasmania Labor condemns neo-Nazi behaviour, and supports the strengthening of laws to protect Tasmanians.
