  • Myriad Genetics and Genetic Technologies can't own genes they discovered, not invented
    Discovery of a gene is not an invention. Allowing this type of patent hamstrings the execution of cancer research in Australia. It also facilitates the creation of expensive diagnostic monopolies that only exist to profit from people dying of cancer. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-09-05/court-dismisses-gene-patent-appeal/5722202

  • A petition to call for the immediate resignation of Christopher Pyne
    Over recent years, the Australian Parliament's integrity has been called into question on multiple occasions because of the way that politicians behave during parliamentary sessions. It has come to a stage where Parliamentary sessions should not receive even a PG rating for telecasting. Politicians should be the highest form of role-models with the highest level of public accountability. They represent the Australian people at home and internationally. With this in mind, the incident wherein Christopher Pyne used derogatory and violent language in a publicly televised Parliamentary session is absolutely intolerable. With this petition, we intend to call for Pynes resignation, and Tony Abbot's support for said resignation-- as Party Leader and Prime Minister-- in the interests of reinstating some public confidence in political accountability. Had a teacher in an Australian school used such offensive language they would be issued a severe reprimand. Pyne, as Education Minister, should receive no less. We the undersigned strongly believe that Christopher Pyne has demonstrated that he is not a fit representative of the Australian people and as such should be held accountable. His behaviour embarrasses Australia as a nation, and Tony Abbot should call for Pyne's resignation if he does not willingly volunteer it.

  • Increase Debt Levy to 10%
    Rather than cut essential services to the bone, the Commonwealth government clearly needs to raise more revenues and the most efficient is through income tax. The GST is very inefficient to collect and affects the poor worst. In a caring society which is aging, we need to accept that the cost of support for the aged will inevitably rise; we cannot just ignore them. Also the economic progress of our nation depends on having a well educated population. The government needs to show a caring attitude as this is essential to create a caring society as a whole. The quality of life in Australia depends on it.
