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.

    Don’t have to agree with someone else opinion, but they have a right to express it.

    Sometimes I can’t agree with someone else opinion or we’ll both be wrong.
