Fighting for racial justice in the Victorian election
It’s not only the One Nation party that gives Australian politics a racist name. Many political parties and politicians around Australia create and support policies and campaigns that marginalise First Nations people, communities of colour and migrant communities.
Ahead of the Victorian state election this weekend, a group called Colour Code is holding candidates and parties accountable for racist platforms, and challenging them to better represent communities that have long histories of marginalisation.
Senior Human Rights and Racial Justice Campaigner for Colour Code, Roj Amedi, spoke to Indre McGlinn about Colour Code’s fight against racism in Australian politics.
