• The Inner West Needs More Recycling!
    With more people working from home than ever, it has become clear that our communities are in desperate need of more recycling pickups. Inner West Council is already behind on this – City of Sydney Council has been doing weekly recycling pickups for a while now. This is not good enough from our council that claims to have environmental credentials. We've heard stories from people who have been putting recycling in their general waste, and this has been a particular problem for the many share houses in the area. As one person said, "this is no way to live." An added benefit is that this will create jobs for many waste collectors and sanitation engineers. Many people in this industry worked in commercial waste collection, which has seen a decline due to less people working in offices due to the pandemic. Sign this petition and tell the Inner West Council that enough is enough – for the environment and for our homes, we need more recycling pickups!

  • Install a Crosswalk on Hill View Terrace
    Recently, my daughter was involved in a collision with a vehicle whilst riding her bike and trying to cross Hill View Terrace after leaving school. She was knocked off her bicycle by a car going 60km per hour, luckily escaping serious injury. Due to the slight incline in the road towards Berwick Street and the blind crest, it is extremely difficult to gain full visibility of vehicles approaching at this intersection. Upon signing this petition you are agreeing that as a parent of a child attending Millen PS, you would support the installation of a traffic warden permanently at or around the intersection of Hill View Terrace/Devenish Street. I sincerely believe that there are parents in St James that presently don't allow their kids to walk or ride due to safety concerns in crossing Hill View. However, if a traffic warden was stationed at this intersection, many of these concerned families would feel at ease allowing their children to walk or ride to school using the crosswalk. But for now, it remains too dangerous.

  • Don't return to face-to-face learning in ACT Schools on 18 May
    Once face-to-face learning becomes the focus again, we will no longer have the option to keep our children and families safe, as online learning will not be supported. As a parent who shares their children with an estranged partner I do not have the option to permanently homeschool, as their father would not agree to such an arrangement - therefore, once education returns to school campuses I will have no other option than to send them into what I consider a high-risk setting.

  • #australianpipelinesprojectwateronly
    Important for future generations. to the Pm of Australian and all states our water supply is in crisis and action is required now! as this can greatly reduce unemployment numbers and also provide a sound future for crops and livestock whilst expanding to areas once we're unable to produce more from our lands, this is a major infrastructure program that will go over a short period of time and will be built by Australian owned companies along with Australian people to gain financial benefit and future prosperity this is a no brainer. act on this now.!! My name is (Edward cruckshank) and I am here today to explain my plans to you, and hope you really take note at how my projects can / will fix a lot of problems we face today! my projects will need all states and All states need to agree, all states. Australia wide. as will all countries! if we're to expand! worldwide projects were people win. My proposal will change all life for the beter, drought eliminated famin reduced roads to travel and homes to come home to real leadership. fyi. Dot points. Ocean, pipelines, desalination plants,pumps solar etc multiple times multiple states multiple country's These are all achievable and cost afective and can save all life all around the globe! #australianpipelinesprojectwateronly How we / I would go about doing it. Firstly we make channels in all states Australia wide from the ocean, in All states we also have settling dams, we than close it of, once full, we let the water sit for a week or so to help the seperating of salt. We then have pipelines attached to said dams all stretching out to the most dryest parts and rivers of Australia. Along these said pipelines we also build small scale desalination plants every 100 KMs so as we push the water it will pass through moltable stations, gives moltable chances we than also attache solar farms and wind turbines to help the running of plants.  We than also attache the pumps in areas were the landscape is normally to hard for water to flow in return helping the water to flow all the while using the landscape to our advantage. By achieveing this we create jobs , communitys and farms were once no one could live. The economy will triple and less than five years to do all this once all states back it and all states start. Implemented once only now and guarantee prosperity for all life. We know this will and can work.  We know this is the only plan to implement.  1. Food 2. water, 3 home My plan will give us this on realms never achieved.  World watcher ( Game changer) Regards Edward cruckshank

  • An Open Letter to Scott Morrison, Our Nation’s Dad. #AbsorbTheDebt
    We the people, should not drown in debt because of a global pandemic that is out of our control. It is not our fault. Continuing to accrue mountains of debt due to rental, mortgage and loan payment arrears is simply not okay and Scott Morrison and his Government have the power to change this. #AbsorbTheDebt #DearDad #ScoMo #ScottMorrison @ScottMorrisonMP @getup_australia

  • No construction work Sundays, Good Friday and Easter Sunday
    Neighbours need a break from construction noise and concrete dust. They deserve to be able to participate in on-line church services and to be able to hear these. They deserve to be able to sleep past 7am or 8 am and to be able to go outside in the garden or hang washing out without noise and dust. Those with respiratory problems need a break from the dust. We cannot go out to escape the noise and dust except for brief periods. The impact on physical and mental health of residents and construction workers and their families need to be taken into account especially at this time.

  • 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.
