A Fair Go for all Australians
Please stand with us and do what is right.
Let’s walk in the footsteps of the other great statesmen and women of honesty, integrity, and dedication to serve the people of our communities – not the whims of multi-national corporations or other countries.
At the moment, all political parties are corrupted by political donations – essentially ‘bribed’ to do the bidding of their biggest donors : the banks, large mining and resource companies, big pharma and agro-chemical companies or other countries (eg. China). It’s time to end all ‘donations’ to political parties.
We are a grass roots party, and we don’t accept political ‘donations’.
Our key policies are outlined below, and I ask you to please join us, and work for positive change. Foundation membership is free, or you can join as a Toll Strike or Civil Liberties member for a small fee.
Founder & Secretary
END ROAD TOLLS & ABOLISH S.P.E.R.
End the toll road rip-offs and abolish the State Penalties Enforcement Registry (SPER) which is a draconian, gestapo-like agency that is out of control and has unfairly punished thousands of ordinary people.
KEEP ESSENTIAL SERVICES IN STATE OWNERSHIP & CONTROL
Privatisation of public assets has led to increased prices and poorer service. Keep all essential services (power, water, roads, etc) publicly owned and controlled. No more privatisation or ‘public – private partnerships’. No more secret deals and hiding behind ‘commercial in confidence’ tricks to conceal these deals from public scrutiny.
PROTECT CIVIL LIBERTIES & FREE SPEECH
We must have the right to free speech, and the right to refuse unwanted medications, micro-chipping, etc without discrimination. Give local communities the power to veto unwanted developments - be they Coal Seam Gas mines; shopping centres; mobile phone towers; high rise developments; etc.
CONTROL CORPORATE GREED & END POLITICAL CORRUPTION
Remove tax loopholes and end negative gearing to make the rich and large corporations pay proper tax. Ban financial donations to political parties to end corruption and influence pedalling.
CUT SALARIES & PERKS OF POLITICIANS AND SENIOR PUBLIC SERVANTS
Politicians and public servants are there to serve, not feather their own nests and receive elaborate perks that ordinary Australians don’t get. Slash their bloated salaries, pensions and perks.
STOP WATER FLUORIDATION
Fluoride is a TOXIC POISON and the prestigious Cochrane Scientific Review of 2015 has shown it has little benefit in preventing dental caries, and is actually harmful to human nervous and skeletal systems. We will put an immediate stop to this outdated and ill-informed practice.
FREE TERTIARY EDUCATION - END HECS
Stop putting our brightest young people into huge debts before they even have a job! Support deserving students with a free living wage while they study, like we used to.
NO GST OR MEDICARE LEVY INCREASES
Make the wealthy pay their fair share of tax, NOT increase the tax burden on ordinary Australians.
REFORM THE BANKS AND RE-ESTABLISH A STATE OWNED “PEOPLE’S BANK”
At present, the banks and other financial institutions are a law unto themselves, deceiving, over-charging and ripping off people. It’s time to reform the financial sector and re-establish a state-owned and controlled people’s bank to provide genuine competition and to fund nation building infrastructure.
PROTECT STATE SOVEREIGNTY & AUSTRALIAN LAND OWNERSHIP
Our democratic institutions are being threatened by the increasing power of private corporations and globalist bureaucracies such as the UN. We must maintain our sovereign rights as a nation to determine our own future by withdrawing from any trade agreements or treaties that are not in Australia’s best interests. Reform land ownership so that only Australians can own residential and farming land.
ESTABLISH CITIZEN INITIATED REFERENDUMS
Strengthen our democracy by facilitating the implementation of genuine citizen initiated referendums, (not ‘plebicites’), that are binding upon governments to implement if passed by a clear majority.
Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are a danger to human health and the environment and we call for a complete ban on all foods containing GMOs. Subsidise Organic farmers and assist other farmers to transition to organic methods.
END ANIMAL CRUELTY
We support the widespread calls to end animal cruelty, domestically and commercially, particularly in agriculture and the racing industry. It's time to phase out live animal exports and end battery cage egg production - this is no way to treat animals!
END CREDIT CARD SURCHARGE FEES
Reduce credit card interest rates and stop Credit Card companies and big businesses from profiteering by charging 'surcharge' fees.
PRESERVE WILDERNESS & REFOREST AUSTRALIA
Preserve important native wilderness areas and wildlife habitats. Plant millions of trees to provide both a valuable renewable resource and revitalise our timber industries.
TRUTH IN LABELLING
Enforce Honesty in Product Labelling - including genuine country of origin, GMO labelling, etc.
