• Wildlife bridges
    Wildlife is always on the move for food, breeding and nesting sites. Since last years bushfires there is major movement of wildlife back into the huge areas that were burnt and are now regrowing. The bridges will get them safely across small local roads as well as major highways.

  • Aussies Tethered to their Home Kidney Machines.
    Well over 1,000 Kidney Dialysis Home Patients are unable to move away from their home clunky machines for 5 hours, three days a week, unless they book for another one elsewhere. A Quanta SC + machine is portable, weighs 32 kg and is the size of a cash register. It is portable and fits in a car boot. Kidney home patients would have the freedom to move away from home at will. I would love to go camping after six years of deprivation so far.

  • Goyder Council: We need organic waste bins now!
    When organic waste gets put into landfill, methane is released (a greenhouse gas 25 times more powerful than carbon dioxide). Furthermore, when this organic waste mixes with heavy metals in landfill, an acidic toxic sludge is created and can seep into the water table and jeopardise the already precious source. Unfortunately, we cannot deny or ignore the scientific data, climate change is apon us and we need to act to enable the quality of life for future generations. We have a responsibility to protect and honour the land, that has been looked after for thousands of years by the traditional custodians. I encourage and urge for immediate change.

  • Clean up our River system
    For 25 years now I have tried to get councils to clean up our biggest asset the Georges River. Each flood erodes more of the sandy banks due to urban spread & its diversion of run off water to the creek system that feeds the river. Trees that have been long standing face the risk of falling into the river on the next major flood & noxious weeds supplies a home for ever growing mosquito population.

  • Give us back our ferry stop at Dockside!
    It has been several months since our ferry service was suddenly stopped with no explanation & no community consultation. We are being told that there are several explanations/reasons for this occurring, none of which ring true. Dockside was a very heavily used stop and the only one I can walk to because of mobility issues. We have seen no works happening at the Dockside Ferry stop & have been given no timeline for the completion of these works. The interim KittyKat ferries are noisy, hot and small. We have approached our local government representative Jonathan Sri (Gabba Ward) but he has also had little luck in getting real information out of the BCC. This is not good enough! If you agree please sign this petition.

  • Bring back the free lunch and turbo charge the hospitality industry
    Wouldn't it be better to support the industry through stimulating work and small business activity than handing out financial support to hospitality workers who have lost their jobs ?

  • Block Mathias Corman's OECD post
    _'Trying to invert reality'_ Mathias Cormann's climate credentials are sadly lacking and has put big business before climate in almost every instance. Actually to the point of discounting all scientific evidence. Mathias Cormann talks up 'green recovery' in OECD pitch, pitching ‘zero net emissions as soon as possible’, which contradicts his record while in Australian government. Your own report "Australia needs to intensify efforts to meet its 2030 emissions goal" goes to the heart of the problem. Mathias has a record of deep climate skepticism having voted in favour of climate change mitigation in the Australian parliament. https://www.oecd.org/australia/australia-needs-to-intensify-efforts-to-meet-its-2030-emissions-goal.htm His economic policies as Minister of Finance has only enhanced the richest of Australians while penalizing the majority. His policies have significantly increased the inequity divide. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-07-12/household-income-and-wealth-abs-data-shows-rich-are-richer/11302696 Additionally, Mathias Cormann voted against creating a federal Anti-Corruption Commission to hold politicians to account. , Mathias is perfect for the OECD if it would like to swing towards: A supply-side agenda that will intensity class divisions, exacerbate secular stagnation and privilege corporate greed. Become more climate change skeptical and slow mitigation policy whenever and wherever possible. Harden its stance against refugee.

  • Preventative Health Screening - Group Bookings
    People tend to delay their own check ups because they don’t have others holding them accountable to make and attend appointments. If we were able to shift the focus from individualised health care to “get everyone together” and collectively book longer group sessions with friends, family and/or colleagues; and even combine the appointment with something fun and community-focused like a morning tea, a lot more people would probably make an effort to keep up to date with preventative/early diagnostic testing.

  • COURT OUT! LOVE ALL!
    Everybody deserves to be loved, and sport should not be a platform to support and spread misinformation and discrimination against anybody. Full recognition should be given to sportspeople who promote inclusion and love, such as Evonne Goolagong Cawley, and the arena should be renamed after her, or, at the least be called the Love All Arena. The supporters of this petition stand in solidarity with the people of Burundi, especially in the LGBTQ+ community, and people all over the world who have endured human rights abuses and persecution. COURT OUT! LOVE ALL!
