Sedition laws to be repealed

Sorry this post came a few days late, but there is some excellent news for all those who value freedom of speech. The archaic sedition laws are going to be repealed. Although no bill has been introduced yet, Labour has anounced it will suport repealing the sedition laws. Given Act, United future, the Maori party and the Greens also support repealing sedition laws, a bill removing the sedition laws should easily pass into law. No Right Turn has done an excellent series of posats showing clearly the danger sedition laws pose, which is exemplified by the fact police decided to charge a Dunedin bar owner with sedition for offering students a chance to win a petrol soaked couch (although the charges were latter dropped). The sooner the sedition laws are repealed the better.
