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.

When governments act as tools for big business and lie to the public about ‘trickle-down’ economics, aka the golden shower, that is NOT democracy!!

We are part of the lucky country – where everyone is supposed to have the same access and opportunities.

I’m very concerned as a mother and grandmother that big business particularly fossil fuel companies, can buy corrupt politicians.

Big corporations are in maximising profits without having the big picture in mind. The tale that the invisible hand of the market will solve any problem and correct any misdevelopment is debunked. The market produced more existential risks than it ever solved.

Natural resources, climate and the welfare of our people should be put before profit that only benefits the wealthy few.

Greed does not help the country. You have grown too big and are damaging the water.

Democracy thankfully is in my DNA, hopefully in most Australians too.
This is a call to arms, listen up & act

Democracy should give equal power to all members of a society
Geoff 2021-09-15 14:02:21 +1000
We are really sick of the huge influence that big fossil fuel companies have on the Governments of our country.
It’s about time that this issue was exposed for the danger it imposes on Australians & all people.

If we don’t save our planet Democracy will be dead along with the population!
Penny 2021-09-15 13:55:34 +1000
The inability to act on climate change is, to a significant extent, a consequence of vested interests (.e. coal, oil and gas) having a strong influence over government policies and decisions – or, sometimes, a lack thereof. Misinformation and disinformation are often used as a smokescreen to ensure that the public doesn’t get informed about the risks that are increasing all around them. Opportunities are lost as the world transitions to cleaner energy and where enormous benefits should be flowing to Australia.
