In Australia, the rights of convicted sex offenders seem to take precedence over victims' rights. Especially with paedophiles. Serial sex offenders have their names, photos and addresses, suppressed by the courts on release.

Unlike Megan's Law in the United States, communities have no knowledge as to who they are or where they are. A public register is a right and a national duty that is long overdue.

We, the undersigned, insist, that by the end of 2014, the Australian governments, state and federal, through their attorneys-general, unite to publish an ongoing national public register of all convicted sex offenders similar to Megan's Law in the United States.
