As some of you may remember Canadian right-wing independent journalist and activist Lauren Southern was on the 12th of March 2018 was refused entry to the U.K. at the French city of Calais. She was detained for several hours and then sent on her way. She was permanently barred for ever entering the U.K again. The reason from the UK Home office for her refusal of entry was her entry was not conducive to the “public good”
This is only one of many instances where freedom of the press has been shut down, here are a few recent examples. Britany Pettibone & Martin Sellner were denied entry to the UK on March 9th 2018 and banned from the country. Faith Goldy was very recently attacked by ANTIFA and the mainstream media did not do anything about it. Finally as recently as last Friday the 25th of May 2018 Tommy Robinson was arrested and jailed for 13 months for doing nothing illegal.
Now imagine my happiness when I find out Lauren Southern is coming to Australia with Stefan Molyneux in july. The announcement can be found here https://axiomatic.events/
This makes extremely happy because of all the excellent work Lauren has done in South Africa with her Farmlands documentary about the White Farm Murders. A Subject matter which is very close to my heart.
However my happiness and excitement soon turned to anger as I found out there is an active campaign here in Australia to have Lauren banned from coming into the country for her tour.
Only a few days ago Cosmopolitan Magazine a publication which claims to “empower young women” ran this headline about Lauren.
Further to this Asher Wolf on twitter is outright calling for Lauren to be banned from entering Australia. Clearly this person does not believe in free speech and freedom of the media which are basic principals Australia has in it’s society.
Australia is not the UK this cannot be allowed to happen here. I encourage all of my fellow Australians who believe in freedom of the press and free speech to speak up about this issue and support Lauren and Stefan by going to their events. We have to stand up and protect our society and our values now or we will lose them forever.
