• AUSTRALIA SAYS 'NO' TO RECOGNITION SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS.
    The installation of these cameras without the consent of the Australian public is a breach of Governmental power and a serious violation of our human rights to privacy. Being tracked, analysed and our personal data being stored in a cloud for the access of authorities to use as they will, is not only an attack on our human rights to privacy and freedom, but it is also a direct attack on the human psyche and human mental health. The citizens of Australia have never authorised the use of our taxpayer dollars to fund “facial recognition technology” to be used against us and our children as a biometric data collection for physical and behavioural identification. We do not call for a prison system society where everyone is examined and where our privacy is invaded while we go about our day. Australia SAYS 'NO'- We DO NOT CONSENT to 'Face Recognition Surveillance Cameras' in our schools and our society'.

  • Stand up for our ABC!
    “A rigorous broadcaster that pursues the truth, asks telling questions, substantiates its positions, and genuinely cares about local communities is an essential foundation of a healthy democracy" - Ed, an Eden-Monaro voter from Akolele The ABC was there for Eden-Monaro during the bushfires, delivering critical emergency broadcasts, saving lives and keeping our communities connected. The ABC was there for us before and after too — helping us stay informed with stories we can trust and holding truth to power at a time when misinformation is on the rise. It enriches our children's lives. Many Eden-Monaro locals grew up with the ABC and it’s hard to imagine our lives without it. But years of budget cuts are pushing it to breaking point with more programmes facing cancellation and hundreds of job losses to come. By 2022, $783 million of funding will have been cut from the ABC since 2014. We need to act now, before it’s too late. The ABC is the most trusted news source in the country. We love our ABC. This is why we are asking our future representative to commit to championing it.

  • Save Victoria's food bowl and Gippsland Lakes.
    The Lindenow Valley vegetable growing area only 500m downwind from a proposed mineral sands mine in Glenaladale (near Bairnsdale). We want the Australia to know that the area where their veggies are grown is under threat from this mine, that is being proposed in an already severely drought and fire effected area, and traumatised community. If this mine proceeds it is highly likely their veggies will be contaminated from radioactive and highly toxic substances, as well as putting at risk up to 1,500 jobs. If the more than 4GL of water that will be needed by the mine for processing and dust suppression was redirected to growing vegetables, five times more jobs would be created than the 197 jobs the mine proposes to create. 82% of the directly impacted landholders said, in response to a survey question, that they want their land mineral sands mining free. Kalbar is an investment company not a mining company. They propose to dig up 1600 hectares of farm land above subterranean water courses to reach ancient sand dunes 45 metres down which contain a spectrum of useful but toxic and or nuisance chemicals including Zircon, Rutile, or Titanium Metals with traces of Thorium in the region of the RAMSAR listed Gippsland Lakes. The company proposes to create ten pits from which heavy mineral ore will be extracted and processed on site before transport by road to a port in Gippsland where it will be loaded on to ships for Worldwide distribution. The mining company, or another entity that may buy the mining lease from Kalbar if approval is granted by the Victorian Government, will not be obliged to restore the properties to the state they were in prior to mining commencing. In this conflict, the farmers and some of the landholders of Lindenow, point out that their properties are watered from under the ground by aquifers that fill a chain on ponds even in times of drought. They believe that those water sources are below the surface of the land and above the ore body that will be extracted by open mining techniques. They contend that if approved, the mine will destroy the water courses making restoration of their properties impossible. In addition the East Gippsland region was recently severely impacted by drought and then bushfire and we cannot afford this blatant destruction of our already damaged and fragile environment. - A recent Queensland 2018 mine that did not have the financial capacity to restore hundreds of square kilometres of land following a disastrous mining venture.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Bimblebox Nature Refuge the last intact forest in West Queensland under threat of destruction
    The proposed mining lease includes Bimblebox Nature Refuge's land, which holds a Nature Refuge status due to its environmental value; the status received in 2002 under the Bimblebox Nature Refuge Agreement (category VI IUCN protected area) with the Queensland state government to permanently protect the high conservation values of the property. As Nature Refuges and the protected areas that make up the National Reserve System are not automatically protected from mineral exploration and mining, which in Australia are granted rights over almost all other land uses, the Bimblebox Nature Refuge's owners are in the process of applying for a status of Special Wildlife Reserve due to it is being the last wildlife refuge area in the almost entirely cleared from vegetation Queensland Desert Uplands area. An Environmental Assess Report draft produced shows several species, including endangered Black-throated Finch will be very likely become extinct if the Bimblebox Nature Refuge is destroyed. https://bimblebox.org/about/bimblebox-fact-sheet/

  • Re-open the former Geelong Private Hospital
    In light of the need for medical assistance during the COVID-19 epidemic it is not acceptable to have a 107 bed hospital sitting doing nothing. This hospital is set to be reopend by the Victorian Govt and it is time to this now rather than in a few years time!
