Open letter

To our elected representatives,

We call on you to work together to get big money out of our political system and put people back in.

This means:

  • Banning large donations to political parties and candidates.
  • Increasing the transparency of political donations, including real time reporting of donations. 
  • Limiting expenditure at election times so corporations can’t use their oversized  wallets to drown out our voices.
  • Creating an independent watchdog to investigate and stamp out corruption.
  • Stronger lobbying regulation and greater transparency so we know who’s meeting with our elected representatives and why.

Democracy only works when everyone’s vote counts or disparity in wealth and justice causes unrest.

Democratic process is corrupted when big money buys candidates and promotes policy decisions. It is time to change this in Australia and allow the government to work for the people, not the corporations

Because my whole family; fought for Democracy; they’re all gone now; so it’s very important to me, to carry on the fight; which has almost been obliterated , with the Far Right, insidiously infiltrating . It scared me to death; seeing the way things are going right now; and have been for the last couple of years.
In 1974 I emigrated to a laid back, she’ll be right, Australia! Had I arrived yesterday; I would think I had arrived in Nazi Getmaby.
The government of the day; is supposed to be working for its citizens, however, it’s working to swell their own coffers.

The propaganda around election time, is horrendous! and the people fall for it! We lost a wonderful msn in Britain, Jeremy Corbyn; who would have changed the lot of the workers and families in particular. A terrible smear campaign took him out of the race; with his own party stabbed him in the back; the now leader of the so called Labour Party, is a wolf in Tory clothing.
Similarly; Bill Shorten, of the Australian Labour Party, also suffered a smear campaign against him! all because he saw the injustice, of self made retirees; were being given a tax. Y the government; when they didn’t even pay tax! unfair for the rest of the aged pensioners , who were not nearly S well off.
I could go on! Israel; Afghanistan , Syria et,c, etc

Government should serve all interests and listen to all viewpoints. Should not be influenced by big money.

Big money donations buy influence that can often work against the wishes and aspirations of grass roots voters.
