News Weekly has been published continuously by the National Civic Council since 1941, and was originally called Freedom.
The National Civic Council (NCC) is an organisation which seeks to shape public policy on cultural, family, social, political, economic and international issues of concern to Australia.

The NCC has regional groups in many major cities and in regional areas across Australia. These groups meet regularly.
The NCC has its National Office in Melbourne with state offices in Victoria, Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia.
The NCC's research and publishing role provides the vital intellectual backing to its supporters in the field. If you would like to donate to the support of the NCC go here
