Safe Schools: organiser of petition for new program defends 'tolerance' goal

Safe Schools: organiser of petition for new program defends 'tolerance' goal
- The petition, published by Stop Bullying Australia on Change.org on Tuesday, called on Malcolm Turnbull to deliver an anti-bullying program “that everyone can agree on”. Musicians Troye Sivan and Missy Higgins, comedian Joel Creasey and actor Guy Pearce were among the signatories.
The petition, signed by nearly 3,300 people 16 hours after its launch at midnight on Monday, called for a program with “tolerance and mutual respect of LGBTI people at its core”.
“Make no mistake of our request: we do not seek a program that seeks approval of the way certain members of our society live. We seek only mutual respect and tolerance.”
