The Australian Free Speech Coalition is a non-partisan alliance of people from various backgrounds and with various worldviews who share a commitment to defending the democratic value of free speech. Free Speech is a universal right with precious few exceptions. Advocating free speech has never equated to approval of all ideas expressed with that freedom.

"If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all."
 - Noam Chomsky

"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."
 - Evelyn Beatrice Hall (Voltaire's biographer)

"Strange it is that men should admit the validity of the arguments for free speech but object to their being "pushed to an extreme," not seeing that unless the reasons are good for an extreme case, they are not good for any case."
 - John Stuart Mill

"Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties."
 - John Milton

Thank you for your support for the Australian Free Speech Coalition. It means a lot to this public interest campaign that we fight together. Endorsing the AFSC is an affirmation that the solution to bad speech is not banned speech. It is free speech.

    We need to protect free speech from the violent left. They are a minority, but a pain in the arse. We must stand strong and fight the politically correct snowflakes.

    I was a witness to the violent mob who attacked regular people from all walks of life who were attending an interesting presentation by two famous international intellectuals. The behaviour of vicious left activsts was reprehensible. At no time did anyone attending the event threaten or intimidate anyone, but instead had no to endure extreme inconvenience in even being able to attend.

    Freedom of speech, besides the freedom to live free, is the most fundamental right. “[GOD] actually respects the individuality and freedom of His intelligent creatures.” It might surprise none of us to understand that socialist or corporatist people in governments do not have the same respect for us. The state is occupied by socialists and corporatists. The current political conflict within nations is between the socialists and corporatists who seek power over and control of each other and the rest of us; and, [classical] liberals and the rest of us.
