November 2021 Revision Statement

The original version of our article on former AUT Senior Law Lecturer Amy Benjamin, which was published online on 20 November 2021, contained two statements that Ms Benjamin requested to be retracted. The first was a statement that characterised as “false” the information being shared by Ms Benjamin in her Rumble video series. The second related to a quoted statement from Kate Hannah, in which she characterized Ms Benjamin’s views as “racist, sexist and divisive.” Debate Magazine regrets the making of these statements, accepts that it did not have a basis for making the statements and apologises to Ms Benjamin for making them. In response to Debate Magazine’s request for an interview, Ms Benjamin offered to be interviewed on terms that were not accepted by Debate Magazine. The latest revised version of the article, which was published on 26 November 2021, has been amended to reflect the correct position.
