Following the shock announcement this morning (Sunday 30th) by Justice Minister Kiri Allen that hate speech laws are back and may be in place before next year's election, Jonathan Ayling sits down with Free Speech Union Council members Dr. Roderick Mulgan and Ani O’Brien, along with ACT Party Leader David Seymour to unpack what this means for the fight for free speech. Given the negative reaction to the proposals last year, what makes Minister Allan think Kiwis will accept them this time around? Will the short window provided ahead of next year's election be used to ram the laws through without proper scrutiny? And why does National leader Christopher Luxon want nothing to do with this topic? These are some of the questions addressed as the Free Speech Union gears up to oppose this legislation.
