Sounds like an issue to share with the Attorney General, Robert McClelland,
who is inviting people to forward their views on Human Rights in Australia.
The deadline is the 15th June.
In this, the year of the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration on
Human Rights, it is appropriate to reflect on the effectiveness of our current
system of human rights protections, to see if gaps exist, and to explore a
range of ways in which human rights protections could be enhanced.
