The NSW government is closer to banning the Nazi swastika as laws outlawing their display pass the Legislative Assembly.
NSW closer to banning Nazi hate symbol
Nazi symbols are one step closer to be being banned in NSW after legislation criminalising their use passed the state parliament’s lower house on Tuesday.
It follows a ban of the Nazi swastika in Victoria, and pledges by the Queensland and Tasmanian governments to prohibit the hate symbol.
NSW Attorney General Mark Speakman said the Nazi swastika harmed and distressed community members, including those of the Jewish faith.
“Hateful and vilifying conduct is completely unacceptable in our community,” he said on Tuesday.
