• Stop Covid-19 dead; economy recovers quickly
    We want to minimise the impact of Covid-19 on the Australian public, and to demonstrate to the world that with good science, goodwill and political agreement this disease can be controlled. This approach will shock us all. But in 3 months we will thank you and all the health workers of Australian at the End of Covid-19 party.

  • Support Our Early Childhood Educators
    Early childhood educators are at the frontline providing vital care and education for over 1.3 million children. But they are doing it tough. A decline in the number of children attending services means that some services will close their doors and educators will loose their jobs. EC educators required to self-isolate for their safety, the safety of the children in their care and the wider community – may loose their income. Job losses and service closures will have huge ramifications for educators, children, families and the Australian economy, now, and in the future. If we guarantee to support our educators now, the flow-on effect for children, families and childcare businesses, whether for-profit or non-profit, will be immense. It will keep people in jobs and not reliant on welfare. At this time of national crisis, and coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child (UNCROC), the need to keep Australian children’s early childhood education and care services working is never more pressing.

  • MPs do your job - keep parliament working
    Parliament sits at the heart of our democracy. It keeps the executive in check. A long term adjournment at this critical juncture in our history risks abuse of power and leaves us, the people, without a voice. We need our MPs to keep on the job and to use government's resources to make this happen.

  • Protect Small Business Essential Services
    Suppliers/ manufacturers are limited in their supply of goods to wholesalers (Metcash, t/a/ Campbells) who stock small business such as IGA's. They are forced to maintain preferential supply to major retailers Coles & Woolworths. If small traders can not access stock to sell to our local customers during the lockdown, it will only exacerbate the spread of the virus and drive small businesses to close from financial ruin. The priority must be to get stock to consumers, where ever they choose to shop. Whilst Coles representatives are seen on the news standing in front of warehouses stacked to the roof - my wholesaler's (Metcash) racks are bare. This is unethical in this time of crisis.

  • Renationalise QANTAS Now
    20,000 workers were just told that their bosses' profits are more important than their lives. A huge handout of Australian taxpayer money did nothing to stop this. Renationalising the airline would allow all these workers to be immediately reinstated, and it would allow Australians to control one of the country's flagship companies and largest emitters of greenhouse gases.

  • Hear OUR Voice - Nurse & Doctors say SHUTDOWN Australia
    The reason this is so important is to prevent our healthcare system from being overwhelmed all at one time. This method will save lives and allow for our patients requiring lifesaving treatment to get well with the right resources.

  • Re-open the former Geelong Private Hospital
    In light of the need for medical assistance during the COVID-19 epidemic it is not acceptable to have a 107 bed hospital sitting doing nothing. This hospital is set to be reopend by the Victorian Govt and it is time to this now rather than in a few years time!

  • Saint Brigid's Primary School Camps
    The students look forward to their camps each year with much joy. School camp offers a structured opportunity for children to grow. This experience allows kids to become independent and self-confident, while socialising and making new friends, and even learning new skills. The children often look forward to this experience from grade prep through to when they are finally old enough to attend. Due to excess enrolment numbers Saint Brigid's Primary School has decided that grade three and five children will no longer be able to attend school camps. The school held a meeting with the students ‘about school camp’ recently. The grade three, four, five and six children were gathered together where they were told that for half of the children in the room there would be no camp, this was very upsetting for them. Many parents telling the story of children crying after school as they were so upset. The school has a view that the children will equally receive these opportunities with an ‘activity week’ at school is met with resistance from both students and parents. Although it will be a fun and rewarding experience, the children are unlikely to get the benefits and excitement of a camp. The locations of the planned camps are of disappointment also. With only two camps now offered in the children’s primary years it is disappointing that the ones on offer do not include either Sovereign Hill or Canberra. A school excursion to Canberra is considered a rite of passage for many Australian students. Students visit many attractions including the Museum of Australian Democracy, Parliament House, the High Court and, of course, a highlight for many — Questacon. More than 100,000 school students get first-hand knowledge of democracy and lawmaking on a visit to Parliament House every year, a truly unique and beneficial education experience – one that our children will no longer be offered. It is so disappointing to think that due to the growth in our school population our children will no longer be given the opportunity to: a. Participate in school camps for two of their four last years of primary school b. Visit Canberra and the unique education experience it (they will also not be attending Sovereign Hill in Ballarat – another important education experience for students). We would like the Saint Brigid's Primary School reconsider: • The cancellation of school camp for our grade 3 and 5 students. • The ceasing of a school camp to Canberra for our senior students.
