Bernardi's motion recognising victims of communism denied by Labor

November 14, 2017

Recognising President Donald Trump's recent declaration of national support for victims of communism, Senator Cory Bernardi tabled a motion calling upon the Australian Government to annually commemorate such victims.

The motion read as follows:

Mr President

I give notice that on the next day of sitting, I shall move - That the Senate:

(1) notes the Trump administration in the United States of America has declared 7 November to be the National Day for Victims of Communism;

(2) further notes the Senate motion passed on 18 October 2017 rejecting any assertion that the teachings of Lenin or Marx should be celebrated in a liberal democracy;

(3) recalls the number of refugees who came to Australia fleeing communist regimes; and

(4) calls upon the government to organise a similar annual commemoration remembering the victims of communism from 7 November 2018 onwards

The Labor Party in the Senate denied formality to vote on this motion.
