MEDIA RELEASE

Australia card means al-Qaeda wins

19 July, 2005

The Member for Kennedy Bob Katter has voiced his concerns about the latest push to introduce a national identification system.

Mr Katter said the introduction of an Australia Card means that terrorist groups like al-Qa’ida have won.

“If Australians start losing their freedom and have restrictions placed upon them in the name of national security, then it means al-Qa’ida has won,” Mr Katter said.

Mr Katter joins an increasing groundswell of opposition to the concept of an Australia Card identification system.
