There is an online petition calling for the introduction of an R18+ rating for computer games in Queensland. The petition states simply:
Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that the Classification of Computer Games and Images Act 1995 is currently out of step with the wishes of the electorate.
Your petitioners, therefore, request the House that it be amended to permit computer games to receive the R18+ classification when they have been refused classification under the Commonwealth Act.
This petition is available on the Queensland Parliament website, and is open to Queensland residents only. If you live in Queensland and support the introduction of an R18+ rating, you should make your voice heard.
It is unlikely that this petition will directly result in Queensland breaking from the rest of Australia to introduce an R18+ rating for games. It may, however, increase the pressure on Queensland's Attorney-General to speed up the release of the discussion paper, which appears to be stuck with the Commonwealth Minister for Home Affairs.
