No more fireworks for Australia

No more fireworks for Australia

To the Australian Federal,State and Territory Governments.

Change one small step at a time is what this country and world needs.
I would like to request all the funds that would usually be allocated to firework displays at the end of 2020 to be immediately redirected to funding the current needs of our volunteer firefighters.
Celebrations as community's are important so I would like to suggest you formerly seek submissions from our creative communities for alternative spectacular celebrations at both State and Federal levels.

Surely we as a nation can stand up and show the world that we have moved on from pyrotechnics as the only way to celebrate the in coming NEW Year.
To say the use of fireworks is old technology is an understatement and regardless of the fire ban status on the day in a particular part of the country. We really can lead the world in creative innovative alternatives that won't put more smoke into our atmosphere or trigger a bush fire big or small.
Hopefully the new alternative celebrations will allow for our pet dogs to sleep easy as well.

200 BC -- 800 AD: The Birth of Fireworks
Like many inventions, firecrackers fireworks were created by accident... and by the search for immortality. Around 200 BC, the Chinese unintentionally invented firecrackers by tossing bamboo into fire, but it took another thousand years before true fireworks came alive.Jul 1, 2015

Why is this important?

Change one small step at a time is what this country and world needs .We can no longer sustain out old practises and this seems to be a good place to start as we all work towards a brave new world ..

Reasons for signing

  • More Chinese rubbish that we bring in to our country to further destroy our environment and habitat. Led light shows can be far more entertaining and cause far less destruction.
  • Surely in this day and age a laser light show is far more sustainable in many ways
  • I believe it is a travesty of unbelievable proportions that the government can allow fireworks at a time when the country is burning there are other ways to celebrate the dawning of a new year which is far less environmentally destructive let’s use lasers holograms to celebrate a new dawning each year
