Greens reject Online Safety Bill
The Greens will vote against the Online Safety Bill because it is poorly drafted and could lead to widespread, unintended consequences.
"This Bill would make the eSafety Commissioner the sole arbiter of internet content in Australia ," Greens Digital Rights spokesperson Senator Nick McKim said.
"It creates extraordinary powers for any one person to hold, let alone an unelected bureaucrat."
"It also fails to provide for timely reviews or appeals of decisions made by the eSafety Commissioner."
