Oz censorship

Internet censorship by the Australian Government-funded ABC and The Conversation.

Censorship is repugnant because it prevents basic human communication required for democracy and in particular short circuits risk management that is crucial for societal safety and which successively involves (a) accurate information, (b) scientific analysis and (c) informed systemic change to minimize risk.

Yet the taxpayer-funded ABC (Australia’s equivalent of the UK BBC) has an appalling record of censorship, mal-reportage, lying by omission and lying by commission. The taxpayer-funded ABC program Late Night Live and the taxpayer-, Australian universities- and CSIRO-backed and Australian academic–based web magazine The Conversation have both repeatedly censored my informed, credentialed  comments about horrendous, war-related  civilian deaths, and when I publicized this censorship both blocked my posting of comments.

To anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish people alike, the fundamental moral imperatives from the WW2 Holocaust (from which only a dozen of my family survived) are “zero tolerance for racism”, ”zero tolerance for lying”, “bear witness” and “never again to anyone”. The censorship of anti-racist Jewish exposure of crimes against humanity is particularly repugnant and will certainly attract international censure against Australia, the Australian Labor Government, the ABC, The Conversation, Australian universities and CSIRO.

Yours sincerely,
Dr Gideon Polya
