Human Rights Act tabled in Qld Parliament

Mark Braybrook reporting with 4BC1116: Queensland is in line to join Victoria and the ACT in becoming the only states or territory to have human rights legislation.

The bill will enshrine 23 human rights including equality before the law, protection from torture or degrading treatment, freedom of expression and freedom of association.

One of those who’ve led the push is Aimee McVeigh from the Human Rights Act for Qld Campaign and she tells Mark many people had not realised their basic rights currently aren’t guaranteed.
