Senator BERNARDI (South Australia) (16:09): I move:

That the Senate—

(a) takes note of an event scheduled to occur on 26 October 2017 at the Australian National University entitled 'Celebrating the 1917 Russian Revolution', organised by Socialist Alternative;

(b) observes that this year marks 100 years since that revolution, which led to a litany of human rights abuses and approximately 10 million deaths;

(c) notes that the 1917 revolution promoted Leninist and Marxist teaching to the broader world; and

(d) rejects any assertion that the teachings of Lenin or Marx should be celebrated in a liberal democracy.

The PRESIDENT: The question is that the motion moved by Senator Bernardi—No. 530—be agreed to.
