All 41 Australians who are interested in part 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act got together today for a bit of a catch up, as part of a niche hobby convention in the nation’s capital.
Other groups at the convention included the rare book enthusiasts, the taxidermists association, and a group interested in the weaving techniques of medieval French peasants between 685 and 691.
The meet-up was a chance to discuss the ins and outs of the legislation the racially inflammatory words they would like to be able to say.
“It’s so cool meeting all these people with similar interests,” one of the 18C group said. “And it’s so diverse. Everyone from 40 year-old white men, to 60 year-old white men”.
