To the Liberal Party of Victoria, and all other political parties who have not yet ruled out making opportunistic preference deals that could damage our communities, join us in resisting the harmful politics of Pauline Hanson's One Nation.
Victoria is a state that proudly celebrates its multiculturalism and we know that our diversity enriches all our lives. Yet with the election of Pauline Hanson and her One Nation party to the Federal Senate, more and more Muslim Victorians are feeling the sting of exclusion and are suffering harassment and bigotry at the hands of the far right.
The opportunistic preference deal the WA Liberal party signed up to has delivered One Nation 3 seats in the Western Australian upper house. We must not let this happen in Victoria. One Nation will only gain a foothold in our state with help from other parties - we call on everyone to join us in resisting them and their hateful message.
