Join our petition and say NO for kids….
‘…Publications once considered ’soft porn’, have become more and more explicit. Now they are placed right in front of children at their eye level in milkbars, service stations and newsagents across the country! Who decided all of a sudden that it is OK for children to be exposed to pornography?…’
Say No 4 Kids gives you the opportunity to speak out and help effect change to the display laws relating to pornography, so that children and young teens aren’t confronted with inappropriate, highly sexualised imagery as they go about their daily lives.
The authority responsible for the laws relating to pornographic material and their display is the Standing Committee of Attorneys General (SCAG) Censorship Ministers. The SCAG Board is established by the Australian Federal Government, and consists of one representative from each State and Territory.
It is the aim of Say No 4 Kids to present our petition to SCAG in November 2009 when they come together for their Ministerial Conference to review the censorship laws. With your help, we intend to inform SCAG that as guardians of the next generation, we want pornographic material removed from view and access of children and young teenagers. If cigarettes can go back behind the counter, why not porn?
Please take a few minutes to look at our website and sign the online petition. Forward it to your family and friends and/or print the hard copy version (please be sure to return completed petition to P.O. Box 707, Pakenham Victoria 3810, by the end of October).
Say No 4 Kids is not affiliated in any way with any political, religious or vested interest group. We represent a diverse range of people concerned about the health and wellbeing of children and young teenagers.

I agree that these magazines should NOT be at child eye level, especially when they can’t be sold to minors.
It’s ok to say to keep your child away from them, but if you are in a queue waiting to be served and they are right in front of the child, what can the mother do. Kids grow up too quick as it is.
