  • Free Fiona Smith, #Right2Refuse protester & platypus advocate
    Fiona Smith was to attend International Victims of Psychiatrists Day on 10th Oct 2pm - 5pm, at Canberra Parliament AAA. This is about a protester & human rights defender being silenced by the vile cruel exploitation legislation that is the MHA. Risperdal Consta is causing Fiona Smith horrific pain and damage to her body, disfiguring, disabling and retarding of her abilities. Risperdal Consta is known to cause - -agitation -anxiety -changes in vision, including blurred vision -difficulty concentrating -difficulty speaking or swallowing -inability to move the eyes -increase in amount of urine -loss of balance control -mask-like face -memory problems -muscle spasms of the face, neck, and back -problems with urination -restlessness or need to keep moving (severe) -shuffling walk -skin rash or itching -stiffness or weakness of the arms or legs -tic-like or twitching movements -trembling and shaking of the fingers and hands -trouble sleeping -twisting body movements This is outrageously cruel drug to forcibly subject Fiona Smith to. Her skin was torn when they forcibly injected her in her arm, causing her to bleed, and as she said 'blood everywhere all over the bed where they held me down.' Victorians must think of human rights and dignity, before the money made from human research. It is a disgusting thing for a State Government, and a Federal Government to profit from. Forced Human Experimentation, and the psychiatrists that torture people for profit, must be utterly condemned and immediately stopped. For a state such as Victoria to train psychiatrists to torture little animals in their research, then move on to humans is disgusting. For these psychiatrists to take pleasure in the power they have to break people under torture, into servitude as research specimens, and be allowed to do that through State legislation, is so vile and evil. That the State Legislators have given violating psychiatrists loopholes such as Emergency Treatment/ Research, and the Victorian Mental Health Act 2014, is not something that should be allowed. No State/ Territory in Australia, or any other place in the world, should be allowing psychiatrists to force their products, procedures, programs, beds and research on people. And the life of our rivers, as Fiona Smith has been advocating must also be considered. The river water would not be any where near as polluted as it is if there was no forced psychiatry. Victoria and the rest of Australia must implement international agreements, such as the UN CRPD, stop violating Fiona Smith, the people she's being protesting for, and the river life she's also been advocating for. https://youtu.be/NfWEu3BPaWU Forced psychiatry should be considered a servitude offense, and the Code violations, for the human research people have been forcibly subjected be recognised and subjected to the full force of the law.

  • Don't Frack the Outback - Let's Stop Fracking In Australia
    Much is being done to try to influence Australia’s leaders to transition out of coal. A lesser known source of greenhouse emissions is our gas industry. Government figures show that emissions from coal and gas are increasing. They explain the methane increase as being due to rising LNG exports. Yet they want to export even more. As one of the world’s largest gas exporters, we are on track to becoming one of the top contributors to global warming by 2030. Doctors for the Environment Australia believe that our gas industry has impacts for climate and health and is a threat to our food security. The Permanent People’s Tribunal has said that fracking is against human rights and should be banned worldwide. The latest Water Report for the Surat Basin says that in Qld alone 547 water bores will become unusable as the gas fields expand. How much water from WA, SA and the NT will be wasted too? Future generations need our Government to ban fracking now. Please add your signature and get as many others as possible to sign too.

  • Don't Frack the Outback - Injune Qld
    When people visit the Outback they expect to see wildlife, trees and wide open spaces. Not gas wells. This project allows multinational companies to drill and frack 940 wells on farms, in State Forests, right near Carnarvon National Park. Fracking even one well is too many. Drilling more wells when the climate is in crisis and Australia faces no shortage of gas if it was reserved from exports is not necessary, economically wise, or morally sound. This acts as a submission opposing Australia Pacific LNG application to vary Environmental Authority EPPG00787513.

  • Expand and backdate whistleblower protection
    In 2004 the Australian Security and Intelligence Service bugged the offices of the Timor-Leste president. There were negotiations taking place for access to the Timor Sea gas reserves, and Australia's negotiators used the bugs to gain an advantage and promote the interests of the company Woodside. Witness K saw this and tried to rectify this wrong, and eventually his efforts saw this becoming public knowledge. I think Witness K is a courageous, solid defender of a decent Australia. A hero of democracy, who the government has chosen to harass and prosecute. And now we have more of the same, with police raids on ABC and News Corp to catch whistleblowers in June 2019. We don't want to be like China!

  • Ban Royal Brunei Airlines
    Brunei has just introduced the death penalty for homosexual acts and for adultery. And if that isn’t barbaric enough, it is DEATH BY STONING. Royal Brunei is a state-owned airline. The Australian Government can send a very clear message to Brunei that gross violations of the UN Declaration of Human Rights can not be tolerated. Please take action before the first public executions are held.

  • Better canteen
    For all children living in Australia. Healthy nutrition at a young age will shape their future health and habits, it would support families will lower income and busy parents who have no time to spare cooking proper lunch for their kids. It will support the economy by using produces from local farmer, we could also cut on waste and teach kids to live a more ethical way.

  • Mothers work
    The economic disadvantage women face through child bearing and rearing is so engrained in our society that we accept it as the status quo. However Australia has one of the lowest number of paid maternity leave weeks ( and it is also conditional) . Instead of labelling this payment as “welfare” or “government handouts” let’s start a paradigm shift and look at it for what it really is; A redistribution of wealth for human capital, in support of women (and men) in a time of their lives when they need it most. It seems a strange but accepted throw back to the 1960’s that if you choose to raise your own children you become the economic responsibility of your significant other ( statistically speaking in a heterosexual relationship this is the man / husband). This lack of financial independence is not only distressing and oppressive, it affects all areas of life including negatively impacting maternal mental health, increasing stress on the relationship ( during an already stressful time ) and ultimately can affect the health and well being of the entire family unit. Lack of financial independence is also contributing factor to women experiencing domestic violence & their inability to escape their circumstances. If we were able to provide women with a level of financial support during the first year of their child’s life, we would not only be supporting the woman and child but be investing in a healthier, fairer more just society. For what mothers add to society in terms of a loving, nurturing and peaceful upbringing has far more value and unseen ripple effect then any economic system could ever be able to accurately measure or quantify.
