A previously mentioned rally planned to show the support of gamers for an R18+ rating in Australia drew about 50 people.
The event, promoted by the website Treat Us Like Adults, took place on Saturday, December 5 in Brisbane. Speeches were given by Ethan Watson from Treat Us Like Adults and Nicolas Suzor, CEO of Electronic Frontiers Australia (EFA).
Suzor documented the proceedings on the EFA website, and four YouTube videos (1, 2, 3, 4) have been uploaded, capturing the two speakers.
The next step in pressuring the government, according to Suzor, is to pressure the Commonwealth Minister for Home Affairs, Brendan O’Connor, to release the long-awaited R18+ discussion paper. A form letter and directions are now featured on the EFA wiki.
