• Rethink flight restrictions and mandatory paid quarantine for returning Australians
    A multitude of issues related to the global pandemic have made it difficult and complex for Australians and permanent residents and their families to return to Australia. These difficulties have been further complicated by recent restrictions placed on incoming flights and the State Governments' push to charge Australians for a mandated quarantine period. Each returning Australian's case is different, but many are facing financial, emotional, and mental hardship which is further exacerbated by the Federal and State Governments' restrictions. Furthermore, the rhetoric currently being used by both Government and the media is leading to a growing resentment towards returning Australians within the community. We are Australians who love this country but are disturbed by the recent vilification we have received. Many of us are not merely 'travelers' returning from a vacation at the beach, we are Australians who have been stuck overseas for many reasons, such as work and family commitments. Many not living near internatioinal airports have been unable to access flights home until the recent easing of restrictions in other countries. With those restrictions now lifting it is heartbreaking to have the door of our own country slammed in our faces.

  • Water Bombers for all Aussies
    Because funds raised were done so in good faith that they would benefit all the people who had gone through bushfires. In planning and ensuring that Australia can fight better next time bushfires come through people will be happy that we have learned a lesson and will be better prepared for next time. This is something that many survivors hope for the future.

  • 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!

  • #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

  • 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.

  • 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.
