• Sanctuary for Refugees
    Asylum seekers are subject to cruelty and abuse and held in detention for long periods of time. This is inhumane and causes great suffering and harm. Australia is in breach of multiple Internation agreements that it is a party to. We aim to name and shame the politicians by asking them their position on a specific set of policies in relation to Australia's ttreatment of refugees. We must have no more state sponsored murder as occured to Reza Barati in Manus Island detenion Centre in feb 2014

  • 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.

  • Stop minning development in the Clarence Valley
    March with me people I call for any and all, come march down the street of Grafton to the Council Chambers and send the message to Government that the people of The Valley say " No mining development in the Clarence Valley " we are not about their mining agendas. Stop and object to the development of mining in the Clarence Valley. For the preservation of our Valley, for this generation,and the next. Mining companies are raceing against time. Keven Rudd signed the Kioto Protocol, meaning, in 2020 Australia will lay down tools. No mining, no logging and no fishing for ten years, six years to take as much as they can. .Clarence Valley has been rezoned as RU2 meaning minning and agriculture The harbour at Yamba has been approved, what do you think that means for the Clarence Valley and the generations to come.Why do you think that the city of Grafton has now been approved for a second bridge after all this time, there doesnt appear to be any new development. When was the last time you saw a new house being built in Grafton ? So why now ? does it have anything to do with the harbour at Yamba? and wait till they anounce , they will dam the Clarence Dont be dumbed down by the prospect of money or employment,,they have their own agenda. Once its gone it is too late to object

  • George Pell must go!
    Case in point: As many as 26 Victorians have committed suicide after being abused by ex-priest and serial child rapist Gerald Ridsdale. Cardinal George Pell, who was then auxiliary bishop of Melbourne, accompanied Ridsdale to court - a show of support he attempted to explain to the state parliamentary inquiry into child abuse this week. Ridsdale's trial revealed the church hierarchy had moved him from parish to parish, where he continued to reoffend, despite complaints having been received. http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/victims-fear-as-expriest-ridsdale-nears-parole-20130529-2nc5r.html#ixzz2UilwEfrW How many more are there? Surely the catholics cannot support a man like Pell? Lets tell them we have had enough.

  • Support Tasmanian proposal for voluntary assisted dying legislation
    Consultation is underway until 15 March on the detailed proposal for voluntary assisted dying legislation in Tasmania put forward by the Premier, Lara Giddings, and the Leader of the Greens, Nick McKim. The proposal is based on the important value of compassion for those dying with prolonged suffering that cannot be relieved adequately by current options, and the important principle of respect for people's right to make choices about the end of their lives according to their own beliefs and values. The proposal is backed up by extensive quality evidence and by soundly based and well-reasoned arguments that demonstrate their approach is safe and responsible. It is also consistent with the views of the vast majority of the Tasmanian and broader Australian population. Detailed consultation papers and information on how to express your support can be accessed at www.premier.tas.gov.au or mps.tas.greens.au.

  • Asbestos Cleanup For Terowie Now!
    Asbestos is a major health hazard; the citizens of Terowie have been unnecessarily exposed to it since the 1970s and successive state governments have done nothing.

  • Save our Fortress Brookvale Oval
    This is important, because it will secure a stable ground for the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles for future years. Without the upgrade, Brookvale will become ruined, and if Manly do have to eventually move in the coming years, the Rugby League Community may lose a lot of interest of those people on the Northern Beaches, which is a sizeable portion of rugby league supporters in Sydney.
