Remove Pornography from Children's View

'...Publications once considered 'soft porn', have become more and more explicit. Now they are placed right in front of children at their eye level in milk bars, service stations and newsagents across the country! Who decided all of a sudden that it is okay for children to be exposed to pornography?...'

Say No 4 Kids gives you the opportunity to speak out and help effect change to the display laws relating to pornography, so that children and young teens aren't confronted with inappropriate, highly sexualised imagery as they go about their daily lives.

The authority responsible for the laws relating to pornographic publications and their display is the Standing Committee of Attorney's General (SCAG) Censorship Ministers. The SCAG board is established by the Australian Federal Government, and consists of one representative from each State and Territory.

It is the aim of Say No 4 Kids to present our petition to SCAG in November 2009 when they come together for their Ministerial Conference to review the censorship laws. With your help, we intend to inform SCAG that as guardians of the next generation, we want pornographic material removed from access and view of children and young teens. If cigarettes can go back behind the counter, why not porn?

Please take a few minutes to look at our website, and sign the online petition. Forward it to your family and friends and/or print the hard copy version (please be sure to return the completed petition to P.O. Box 707, Pakenham Vic. 3810 by the end of October, 2009).
Say No 4 Kids is not affiliated in any way with any political, religious or vested interest group. We represent a diverse range of people concerned about the health and wellbeing of children and young teenagers.
