Join our petition and say NO for kids….
‘The covers of pornographic publications including so called ’lads mags’ have become more explicit and are now marketed beside the icecreams and lollies at eye level of young children in everyday retail outlets including corner stores, service stations and newsagencies across the country. It would be illegal to pin this material up in the workplace under the Sex Discrimination Act, so why does the government allow retailers to market this material to children?’
Say No 4 Kids gives YOU the opportunity to speak out and help effect change to the display laws relating to pornography, so that children and young teens aren’t confronted with inappropriate, highly sexualised imagery as they go about their daily lives.
The authority responsible for the laws relating to pornographic material and their display is the Standing Committee of Attorney’s General (SCAG) Censorship Ministers . The SCAG Board is established by the Australian Federal Government, and consists of one representative from each State and Territory.
With your help, Say No 4 Kids intends to inform SCAG that as guardians of the next generation, we want pornographic material removed from view and access of children and young teenagers. If cigarettes can go back behind the counter, why not porn?
“I think it’s appropriate to keep pornography away from children. I don’t think it’s censorship to keep public space porn free – people still have a choice about when they want to consume it. I don’t feel it’s right to impose pornography on people in the public sphere.” Naomi Wolf
