Greens Senator for Tasmania Nick McKim says words of condemnation for Pauline Hanson’s repugnant comments about Port Arthur are not enough.
“One Nation is a threat to community harmony, and Australia’s safe and tolerant society,” Senator McKim said.
“Ms Hanson’s comments about the Port Arthur massacre represent a new low.”
“They are an affront to every Tasmanian, particularly those of us who remember the horrors and trauma of that incident.”
“But words of condemnation are not enough – they must be backed up by actions.”
“The best way to reject One nation’s hateful agenda is for all other political parties to join with the Greens in preferencing One Nation last in the Senate in Tasmania at the forthcoming election.”
