• Stop the Greed & Misconduct: Implement the Banking Royal Commission Recommendations in Full
    Both The Coalition and Labor are backtracking on the recommendations. The reform of the financial sector won't happen without public outrage! This is a once only opportunity to reform the finance sector and perhaps the corporate sector in general. Unless we do something, we'll regret it forever. You might not have felt the pain yourself, but the witness testimony was heartbreaking: They were us!

  • 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.

  • Petition to defer the loss of the VCE for the Maltese Language (including HSC & SACE)
    The Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) has informed the Maltese Australian community that the Collaborative Curriculum and Assessment Framework for Languages (CCAFL) National Reference Group has identified the Year 11 and Year 12 Maltese Continuers Course at risk of suspension due to its very small candidature in 2017. Should the final candidature in Maltese in 2018 and 2019 also fall below 15 students nationally, Maltese will be suspended following the 2021 examination. Therefore, Maltese would not be offered as a language subject in January 2022. Our Maltese language in Australia is at risk of being suspended from the VCE. Please sign this online petition and share with your friends and families to help us keep the Maltese language course as a Board of Studies recognised course in Australia. If the Maltese VCE falls, so does the Maltese HSC and SACE, affecting NSW and SA.

  • Legislate to curb Australia's accelerating rate of land clearing
    Australia remains a global deforestation hotspot, and areas across the country are increasingly affected by intense fires, record temperatures and drought. Land clearing is harming Australian industry and society, as well as the flora and fauna that are directly affected. Over 300 scientists recently called on governments at all levels to take action to curb land clearing and native habitat destruction in Australia. Concerned Australians can amplify the scientists' message by supporting this campaign. The original open letter can be read here: https://www.ecolsoc.org.au/scientists-declaration-strong-legislation-needed-curb-australias-accelerating-rate-land-clearing This interview with Euan Ritchie sets out the issues clearly: http://thewire.org.au/story/experts-call-for-dramatic-decrease-in-land-clearing/ And this article in The Conversation sets out the reasons why urgent action is required at all levels of government: https://theconversation.com/to-reduce-fire-risk-and-meet-climate-targets-over-300-scientists-call-for-stronger-land-clearing-laws-113172 (NB Image courtesy of Goongerah Environment Centre (GECO).)

  • Just when we thought our food was safe in SA
    When it comes to food safety concerns about GM crops we the people need to be consulted or at least all sides to the argument for yes or no need to be considered. It appears the Marshall Government are not interested in consultation, we need to let them know we, the consumers have a major stake in this issue. They are listening to those who have an agenda promoting the case for GM crops, it's our turn to deliver our message. No, don't GMO food in our state. Americans in their droves are now requesting organic food because they don't want GM sourced food, and their whole food system is now compromised. The negative past experiences of other countries who allowed GM crops is freely available for everyone to see. Russia and some EU countries have since banned GM because the risks to human health are too great. Separating GM crops from Non GM crops has proven a nonsensical idea and the hundreds of court cases re contamination confirm this. So what if SA misses out on research on GMO, we want to stay clean.

  • Bike Lanes the full length of Main Road Eltham
    Adding bike lanes to current cycling routes fulfills part of the Victorian Cycling Strategy aim of reducing stress on bicycle routes and assists in establishing better integrated cycling corridors, we ask that the member for Eltham implement cycle lanes along the length of Main Road. Including cycling infrastructure into the planned works at Fitzsimons Lane is the perfect opportunity to satisfy the cycling strategy aim of incorporating improved cycling infrastructure in all major transport projects.

  • 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.

  • Free West Papua
    Since Australia voted in 1962 to occupy West New Guinea with United Nations forces, in violation of our Commonwealth & international legal obligations hundreds of thousands of our Papuan neighbours have purportedly been wrongfully killed by the UN appointed administrators while untold $billions have been looted from their homelands. I believe the looting since 1962 of the United Nations occupied territory has created and is contributing to a reckless shift of wealth and authority from the Pacific to South East Asia which has introduced numerous biological problems and social handicaps to the Pacific which should be mitigated without further delay.

  • Bring them HERE!!!
    The arbitrary indefinite detention of asylum seekers on Manus and Nauru is unfair and un-Australian. We are sick and tired of this policy and want these people brought to Australia to be assimilated within our society like any other migrant. We are all migrants or descendants of migrants; let's give these people a FAIR GO.
