Former Opposition leader to highlight anti-filter sentiments

Former Opposition leader and Federal member of Wentworth, Malcolm Turnbull, is hosting an Internet filtering forum.

Panel members will include former Telstra BigPond group manager, Justin Milne, Getup! national director, Simon Sheikh, and Turnbull himself.

“The proposed filter is a hot issue in Wentworth, with many voters expressing concerns over the Government’s plans,” the Facebook events page said. “… Informed discussion among forum participants will ensure community views on the filter are heard.

The forum will consider adopting community resolutions to capture the views. The even will be held on August 7 at Paddington RSL Club from 3.15pm to 5.15pm.

“If adopted, these resolutions will be presented to Senator Steven Conroy and Prime Minister Gillard as a reminder of the community’s determination to fight the proposal,” the events page said.

Turnbull was dumped by as Liberal Leader in December 2009. He was replaced by Tony Abbott.
