• Don't widen Wynnum Road at East Brisbane
    Because it is a lot of money to achieve nothing. Poor transport planning of outer suburbs and lack of world class infrastructure leads to ineffective temporary fixes being applied and this one must be stopped. It affects many people in the suburb and tears a community apart. It won't solve the problem for commuters.

  • hands up for democracy
    HANDS UP FOR DEMOCRACY From a very early age I have been interested in justice, democracy, helping others and fair play for all. As a child I saw inequalities when some poor child was abused or bullied, and I think this was my grounding for my empathy for my fellow man and the politics that would deliver a humane answer to issues. As a young adult I joined a political party in the hope of making a difference, but as a married woman became disillusioned with policies that affected the family income. Now I am also discovering that policies damage our environment as well as harm our workers. I discover that the rich have the ears of the politicians and feel no concern when they rape our country, harm our environment and damage our precious icon The Great Barrier reef. Terrorism and the refugee issues are not adequately addressed. Our returned soldiers are left on the streets. Workers are losing their standards of living, their wages are being reduced while the cost of living is increasing. It is time. It is time for the Aussie Voter to stand up and be counted. It is time for the Aussie Voter to claim his Right and his Heritage. The People are Sovereign. We need to re-assert our rights to govern. We need to do this before the multinationals gain too much power through our politicians. We no longer have Democracy when the politicians listen to the few over the majority. The few are the multinationals who are not Australians and do not have a company in Australia. They are foreigners and yet they have the ear or our politicians. Why? Our desire is to bring Democracy back into politics and the Parliament; to have a government that will be concerned with, and connect with, the interests of the voters. We envisage a Parliament with greater diversity, not aligned to a single ideology, and more Democratic in their pursuit and application of governance. Scientists and environmentalists as well as the Voters are screaming bout climate change and the damage to the Great Barrier Reef, but our politicians are not hearing us. We aim for a more Direct form of Democracy that will give all people access to governance and the opportunity to be heard, in a just, fair and democratic way; to restore the rights of the Voter, to bring Democracy to all, and to have our wonderful Nation governed according to the will of the Aussie Voter who lives, breathes and works in our beautiful country. Switzerland has managed to do this for over 130 years and has a very stable economy - there is no reason why we cannot do the same. Switzerland has four referendums per year, I propose that we have two. At each referendum we can introduce laws that can be voted on by our people, and the majority will pass or reject each proposal. This is a much fairer method of voting and a better form of Democracy. Enough signatures on this petition will make this a plebiscite referendum, something our Parliament cannot ignore. Will you join us for a better future for all Aussies now, and for our future generations, our children and grandchildren and their grandchildren. This is our gift to all the future generations of Australian Citizens.

  • Stop Land Clearing That Will Wipe Out Koalas
    Koala populations are already struggling in certain parts of Queensland such as Dalby. Habitat is critical to the survival of the koala and up to 80% of koalas who lose their habitat are likely to be wiped out. The proposed destruction of koala habitat is for new coal seam gas wells on Queensland's Western Downs. Coal seam gas mining is a threat to farmlands and water resources not to mention the public health risks which have not yet been properly assessed. Potential harm could include an increased risk of cancer. What else can we do?

  • Save Barrabup Forest....once it's gone, it's gone!
    Barrabup Block is less than 5km to Nannup and is the main gateway to our beautiful little tourist town. There should have been more community consultation from government agencies due to the proximity to town considering the negative impact it may cause. The majority of this forest has not been logged since pre-1920, which makes it very unique as it is the oldest and largest forest this close to town. Rare and endangered flora/fauna and cultural heritage are located within this block. We need to protect this natural asset as it is far more valuable to our community and our environment if left in its natural state. This forest should be something we protect and hold dearly so that future generations can not only enjoy it but celebrate its existence. Please help us save this magnificent forest.

  • Ban brown coal mining in Australia
    Brown coal creates more pollution than other fuels such as black coal, natural gas and much more than clean renewable energy, making Victorians among the most greenhouse polluting people per capita on the planet (Victoria EPA website). Australia's greenhouse gas emissions from brown coal can be reduced dramatically and in a much shorter time frame than through the implementation of renewable energy by ceasing the use of brown coal and instead using black coal from Queensland.

  • Climate levy for Paris Accord cowards
    Our children and grandchildren will have to survive the dire impact of climate change. Already the impact of Global Warming is effecting our: Health – air quality, extreme weather Food supply – farms, water, weather, energy Shelter & Jobs – pollution, energy, Industry – tourism, land produce, education The rest of the world will have to pay for the share of carbon pollution the US is refusing to accept responsibility for. The US is the world’s biggest economy and the world’s second biggest carbon polluter. This means our children and grandchildren, and our industry will be paying very dearly for the belligerent sort-sightedness and self-interest of the USA.

  • 'NO' to 11 room boarding house at 213 Bunnerong Rd Maroubra 2035
    1) DA for a 3 storey boarding house containing 11 boarding rooms - potential accomodation for 22 people. 2) PARKING: only 3 parking spots are included. This is not adequate for the number of proposed residents. Parking is already at capacity on Eastmore Place. 3) CONGESTION: additional cars entering and exiting Eastmore Place is a safety issue, and additional vehicle movements pose a risk. Eastmore Place is still technically a laneway, and access is very narrow and does not allow for two cars to enter and exit without difficulty. 4) SECURITY & COMMUNITY SAFETY: Eastmore Place is a family oriented suburban area, with 20+ young children residing on the immediate block. The proposed boarding house has the potential to erode the existing character of the zone through cumulative social effects.

  • Don't give billions to Adani
    Global mining company, Adani, have been unsuccessfully trying to secure finance for the Carmichael coal mine for years. Now, the Turnbull Government is considering making the Australian public foot the billion dollar bill for Adani's rail line, which will transport coal from the mine to the port. This is despite his promise during the 2016 federal election that there would be no public funding of Adani's mine. This billion dollar loan is risky, reckless, and deeply unpopular. Even members of the Prime Minister's own party oppose it, with Coalition backbenchers Bert Van Manen and Sarah Henderson speaking out. This is public money, that would be better spent anywhere else! Funding our local hospitals and schools would be a good start. Or how about investing in renewable energy projects instead?
