Statement on swastika ban

Zionism Victoria welcomes the announcement that the Victorian government is to criminalise the public display of the Nazi swastika.

Given the significant Holocaust survivor population within the state, and given Victoria prides itself on tolerance, multiculturalism and respect, it is long since time this symbol of hate – a reminder for so many of the horror and pain they and their families endured – should have been placed beyond the realms of acceptable expression.

We thank the government for the action it has taken – the first state in Australia to do so – and express our gratitude to all those who have campaigned for this outcome.
