• COVID-19- Endgame C (lockdown-stop and restart) needs to happen to save lives
    While things remain open, people will gather. While schools remain open, kids will go. They may not get very sick, but they can bring it home to those who will. Teachers can also contract it. This is not a practice run. This is happening. We need to let the government know that our lives are important. This is supported by the following article. Please read this article. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-21/coronavirus-the-case-for-endgame-c-stop-almost-everything/12077096?utm_medium=spredfast&utm_content=sf231766232&utm_campaign=abc_news&utm_source=m.facebook.com&sf231766232=1&fbclid=IwAR0wdiRQAbRjayUz2Ymawy9jPCn2rOvZCH7BXHGGP9mIQqZurBtPTfENx9w We must choose Endgame C, and choose it quickly. 7 days ago we had only 250 cases at the end of that day- last Sunday. Now we have upwards of 1100 cases. That’s a huge increase- in one week. By that logic, next Sunday, we’ll have 4000 cases. But wait, that’s if it increases at a steady rate, which it doesn’t. The numbers are old data anyway. If we know about these 1000 cases now, a week ago they were still there, we just didn’t know about them yet, walking around sharing Covid-19 with friends and family. So realistically we have at least 4000 people out there walking around without knowing they have it, sharing it with others. If they share it with only 4 other people- well, you can do the Maths. The only option here is Endgame C. The Prime Minister thinks people will make smart choices. He has too much faith in people. They will not comply if simply asked to. We saw that at Bondi. There need to be strict instructions and rules. I am not alone. Most of Australia wants to go into lockdown, but won’t unless instructed to do so. The only option is lockdown for 8-12 weeks. Small price to pay really.

  • Restore Our Natural Heritage & Biodiversity & Build Disaster Resilience
    This petition of certain citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the House: Climate change is causing increasingly rapid changes in forest ecologies, water supplies, agricultural systems, extending fire seasons. Bushfires are destroying biological diversity and natural environments relied upon by all Australians. Urgent national action is needed under the EPBC Act to prevent destruction of Australia’s natural heritage and recover and restore biodiversity and natural environments.

  • Qantas - STOP broadcasting Sky News and Newscorp media in your aircraft, lounges and at your gates!
    Sky News and Newscorp publications are notorious for their racist, right-wing rhetoric. We know this type of media commentary has fuelled division and hate in our community, and after Christchurch we know that hate kills. When Qantas provides the platform for the broadcasting of Sky News and Newscorp publications in their aircraft, member lounges and at airport gates, it sends a message that our National airline is legitimising and endorsing those views. Those views are not in keeping with the "Spirit of Australia" - an inclusive, respectful and proud multicultural society. Tell Alan Joyce, CEO of Qantas, to show some corporate leadership and terminate Qantas' contractual arrangements with Sky News and Newscorp publications NOW.

  • Legalise medicinal Cannabis Oil use within Australia
    I have a few friends with cancer, of varying types, and I really want to give them another option than Chemotherapy or Radiotherapy, which is very invasive and damaging to the body. I have done a bit of study around cancer and what it really is (a mutation of healthy cells within the body) and there has to be other ways of treating it other than killing off everything.

  • reopen 74 vacant beds at Glenmead Village Aged Care Facility
    There are presently 72 patients housed in hospitals around the region awaiting placement in an aged care facility. This does not take into account the fact that there are many people barely able to cope in their own homes. THis not only crowds the hospitals it is not a suitable place for aged people to live and it will only get worse as our aged population increases.
