Australia has ‘good cooperation’ with some tech companies on ‘national security mission’

Shadow Home Affairs Minister James Paterson says the Australian government has “good cooperation” with some tech companies on the “national security mission”.

Top security and police chiefs are expected to warn that social media platforms are being used by extremists to provoke a race war and discuss weapon-making, and propaganda.

“We do have good cooperation with some tech companies on the national security mission,” Mr Paterson told Sky News Australia.

“In the past, they have been very supportive of these things.

“It is an extraordinary state of affairs that the Director-General of ASIO and the Commissioner of the AFP feel the need to stand up at the National Press Club and effectively beg them to cooperate.

“Again, we passed laws on this.”
