Australian Rights to an R18 Rating for Videogames sign now

The Australian gamers demand Michael Atkinson (Attorney-General and Minister for Justice) cease holding back videogames on the grounds that they will harm children, and that an R18 rating be implemented, in order to avoid children under legal age purchasing them. By refusing to allow these games to be sold in Australia he is infringing upon the rights of legal adults to play them. There is NO valid reason not to have an R18 Rating for videogames in Australia, or any country for that matter, especially when many other countries do; England, Ireland, USA, Canada, Korea, Japan, Brazil, and Germany to name a few. The average age of Australian gamers is 28, so the vast majority of gamers are in fact above the age of 18, and by refusing to have an R18 rating for videogames, the government is losing money it could be making through the GST placed on the games, money that could do good elsewhere in education or healthcare. We the gamers of Australia, sincerely hope that the government bodies involved will see sense, and at the very least put it to a public vote, "YES" or "NO" to an R18 rating for videogames, so that the rights of the many thousnds of Australian adults are not getting stomped on by a single Minister.
