It’s time to make our democracy fair for everyone. 

Sign the open letter calling on our elected representatives to work together to get big money out of our political system and put people and planet back in.

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.

You call it a democracy, ha! When money can buy what one wants.
When elected representatives sell out the people who they swore to represent for the 30 pieces of gold of the exploiters.
It is only possible to get some sort of justice if the people stand together.

I am appalled at the corrupt, partisan behaviour of the Liberal and National Parties.
Their actions have nothing to do with governing for all Australians, but with maintaining political power with the financial help of a host of fossil fuel corporations to govern and legislate for their profit.

We badly need an ethical government before we have faith in the political climate at the moment.

We elect a government not a load of vested interests. Politicians, start listening to the people. It is not beyond imagination that the people will rise up and show governments just what they expect of them!!

I am sick to death of the unwarranted influence of the filthy industry money in government and opposition parties. Corruption writ large. Our country is on fire and we sell water to foreign multinationals!

Donations do not come from big business without strings attached. Stop the corruption.

Really, really important! How can politicians expect to be respected if donations to them are so murky?
