Just Words

Just Words

2SER is a stalwart of Sydney's community radio scene, but Just Words is the educational station's first original podcast, and it's an ambitious undertaking. The seven-part series will examine a fairly innocuous-sounding clause in Australia's Racial Discrimination Act. Specifically, Section 18C prohibits acts that are "reasonably likely, in all the circumstances, to offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate another person or a group of people" because of their race. 18C was dragged into the spotlight during a 2011 court case involving right-wing commentator Andrew Bolt (see also: Episode 2 in this series) and it has since become a conservative talking point, with some campaigning for its removal. This first episode tackles Holocaust denial, which ought to be prohibited under 18C. A group called The Adelaide Institute insists on its right to propagate "alternative facts" about the Holocaust despite its founder already having been prosecuted under the Act. The story is contextualised in fascinating detail through the accounts of holocaust survivors, historians, legal advocates and deniers themselves.
