Description

  • The majority voted in favour of a [http://www.openaustralia.org/senate/?gid=2007-08-16.331.11 motion] "That clauses 4 to 7 stand as printed", which means that the clauses will remain unchanged. The motion was put in response to an [http://www.openaustralia.org/senate/?gid=2007-08-16.330.1 earlier motion] to oppose these clauses, which was moved by Greens Senator [http://publicwhip-test.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/mp.php?mpn=Rachel_Siewert&mpc=Senate&house=senate Rachel Siewert].
  • These clauses relate to the application of the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Racial_Discrimination_Act Racial Discrimination Act 1975] and Queensland and Northern Territory laws. Senator Siewert argued that these laws are "discriminatory and they treat people in the Northern Territory as a different set of citizens".(Read Senator Siewert's full explanation of her motion [http://www.openaustralia.org/senate/?gid=2007-08-16.330.1 here]. )
