  • Save the Mount Gravatt Green Space
    The green space between Clough St and Middleton St has been used by local residents for generations as a safe place to have a family picnic, kick a footy, play with your dog and ride a bike. It is also a great place to wander through and watch our local wildlife as they use the 100 year old gum trees. The recent construction of units and townhouses in our local area has also significantly increased the use of this green space. For our local community this is the only large, flat area of its kind, away from busy main roads that provides a safe place for our kids and pets to play. The land is currently owned by the Department of Education, and is proposed to be developed into a 40-vehicle staff car park for the Nursery Road State Special School. This proposal will result in increased traffic through our narrow residential streets; the loss of green space and recreation area; and loss of old gums, vegetation and wildlife. This green space is very important to our local community. Please support this petition and encourage the state and local governments to provide a solution that permanently protects this area from development, and ensures it remains a park for the Mount Gravatt community for generations to come.

  • Stop logging what is left of NSW and Victoria’s native forest
    Our native wildlife has lost hectares of native forest in the recent bushfires. To allow logging of our national parks threatens the very survival of our unique Australian Wildlife. We stand on the brink.

  • Aboriginal Land and Fire management task force.
    The aboriginal community understand this land. While our fire and land management practices may be sufficient they could be better. For the sake of the community, our flora and fauna it would be of benefit to work with the first nation people to see if we could improve our practices.

  • RELEASE Australia's withheld water supplies NOW
    AUSTRALIA IS NOT RUNNING OUT OF WATER... IT IS BEING SOLD FOR PROFIT ! Let's stop arguing about whether climate change is real or a hoax, it really doesn't matter any more. Australia is in a catastrophic state of emergency and if these water mis-use practices are not immediately ceased, the situation will become even more disastrous.

  • The RFS need support, it’s time to call in the army.
    This is a natural disaster. The Volunteers who have been battling the Australian bush fires are exhausted. They are in desperate need of man power. The flames of the fires burning in Gosper Mountain last night were over 60 metres high. Six people have passed and over 500 homes have been lost.

  • Petition: Increase Funding for Australian Native Wildlife Rehabilitation
    Koalas are now functionally extinct. We have wildlife hospitals over capacity and surviving almost entirely on donations, rescue organisations and carers trying to save animals often in their homes at their own expense. People from all over the world donating and stepping in to help. Yet our government pays next to nothing to support our wildlife hospitals and stand up to their responsibility. Too little too late for Queenslands fauna emblem and one of Australia's most recognisable native animals. What's going to be next?

  • We demand a Royal Commission into the #Robodebt scheme.
    How many people have to suffer before a #Robodebt Royal Commission is called? #Robodebt useds intentionally flawed "data matching" to make inflated debt claims from six or more years previously, places the onus on the victim to disprove the claims within 28 days, the department refuses to provide any justification for its claims when asked to do so, and then initiates procedures to recover "debts" including heavy-handed use of debt collectors when the debts are still in dispute. Despite improvements to the program, including increased involvement from Centrelink staff and outreach to affected welfare recipients, the scheme is still having an adverse impact on vulnerable people. Debts raised under past iterations of the scheme need to be reviewed, because people who had overpayments raised under the old system, which involved very little oversight from staff, would have paid back money they did not owe. #Robodebt causes stress and anxiety among the country’s most vulnerable people. Research has shown welfare recipients are more likely to report mental health issues and the debt recovery scheme has “exacerbated” the existing hardship and symptoms of mental illness of affected people. #Robodebt reverses the onus of proof onto welfare recipients, and those who do not engage with the process or are unable to provide such evidence are likely to get a debt notice because compliance staff will then use a “controversial averaging” tool to predict their fortnightly income using their annual tax return. The government needs to be brought to justice for causing millions of people severe stress over fake debt notices delivered by his #Robodebt scheme.

  • No mobile phone tower in Sandown Park
    Sandown Park is a much loved Hobart recreational area. People come to wind down, walk their dogs, play some sport and to breathe the air. Telstra have decided to build a huge array of mobile phone antennae on an existing pole in the park relying on their own interpretation that this is low impact. They don’t want to ask the community what they think so the notice is buried in a small community newspaper. Please treat the community with respect, we care about the place we live in and the places we use to unwind in. Please don’t wreck our park. Note: No design or image of the proposed addition of 6 antennae on the pole has been provided so the third image is an example of a 6 antennae configuration. The image will be updated once provided by Telstra
