    Census is threatening me with fines, etc. I am dead set against completing the census. It's an invasion of my privacy. And I'm sure my information is not safe with them. Surely there are privacy laws against this, yeah?

    It may be an offence pursuant to s14 of the Census and Statistics Act (Cth).

    Although it is a defence to refuse to complete it on the grounds of religious beliefs, however, you must supply evidence of this.
