Australia Political Party Makes Major Blunder



Date:  15 Feb 2015

In February 2015, the Australian Labour Party committed a major faux pas (or political suicide?!): they distributed a campaign poster that:

1) showed fingerspelling in American Sign Language instead of Auslan;

2) fingerspelled word "voice" - considered in itself distasteful and politically inappropriate especially when campaign has to do with policy on disability.

Goes to show the need to involve Deaf people in the process. How can you trust these politicians who don't know what they are doing?!
