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.

Politicians are elected to represent us the people or at least the interests of the majority of people not whomever can give the biggest donations from particular vested interest groups. Politicians should make independant decisions for the benefit of the greater good!

I think donations to political parties should be capped at $1000 from and individual or company in any one year. The public should fund political parties to put their case to the public prior to an election in ways that are not misleading.
A strong federal ICAC should be established

It is totally undemocratic that big business has a bigger influence in political decisions than the general Australian public. Democracy should NOT be about who has the deepest pockets, and big business should NOT have a priveliged voice in decisions that affect all our futures

Trust in governments and institutions in Australia is at a seriously low point. Time to remove the influence of big money and govern for the good of all. Let’s shift the dial on this.

The government must look after the needs of the general population; not be enslaved to a greedy few who would sacrifice the well being of all for the sake of an easy profit. Who does the government really want to advocate for? A line must be drawn now before all is lost.
