    Racism online may become illegal in NZ

    Racism online may become illegal in NZ


    Posting racist or xenophobic messages on the internet and Holocaust denial could be illegal if New Zealand signs up to a international cyber-crime agreement. Justice Minister Simon Power and Police Minister Judith Collins yesterday announced a three-year plan to crack down on international organised crime. One proposal involves the Government signing the Council of Europe Cyber Crime Convention, also known as the Budapest Convention.
    A protocol of the convention requires nations to make "the dissemination of racist and xenophobic material through computer systems" a crime. It also makes denial or justification of the Holocaust and other verified genocides illegal.
    Almost 30 nations have ratified the convention. However, a number including US, Ireland and Britain have refused to sign the protocol.
    The organised crime plan proposes to review New Zealand law "with a view to adopting" the convention. A Justice Ministry report notes many laws already conform to the convention. It estimates 70 per cent of adults have been targets of some form of cyber crime.
    An organised crime crackdown would also involve anti-money laundering measures, protections against identity theft and steps to prevent bribery and corruption. It would also allow more information to be shared by domestic agencies and across borders.
    An omnibus bill would come before Parliament next year, if National is re-elected.
    In a bid to tackle white-collar crime, regulations on establishing firms and trusts will be tightened. More than 1000 New Zealand organisations have been implicated in serious offending overseas in the last five years, the report noted.
    To reduce money laundering, increased reporting of suspicious transactions and monitoring of international fund transfers and high value cash transactions would occur

    Does this include racist or xenophobic messages against white anglo-saxon males. Or are they once again excluded?

    I was wondering the same thing. Most likely Muslims will be excluded, also from their "Rage Against The Infidel" mode of thought.

    If you don't believe in freedom of speech for people who's views you disagree with, you don't believe in it at all.

    We will never sort out our differences if our thoughts are censored.

    Apparently, no matter how accurate they may be. Glad I'm 53, the way the World is going, I don't want to overstay on this planet. A frightening new World agenda or order is becoming almost undeniable.

    "Racist" is a bag of wank. We should ban the word and lock up anyone who utters it.

    Denying the holocoust a crime?
    It'll be a sad day for free spech if that happens.
    (yes I know it already has in many places)
    I should be perfectly free to express my opinions on people based on whatever.
    I should also be free to express my theories on historical events.
    It's fucking scary when this sort of thing happens.

    I'm glad I am getting out of this "Green, er long white cloud" Came back after working 38yrs in Canada, more drinking, drugs, gangs and the totally *up by the Mum knows best attitude here. Give every one another chance!! where is this all going. I am coming to the land of smiles, at least you know that if you do something wrong you can get locked up for a very long time in some real prison!!! not the hotels they have Masquerading for prisons here. last year they where looking at privately run prisons using modified containers, no need to modify them just throw the key away when they are full.

    Moved back to LOS, living in Issan
