How to Participate in the Toll Strike
“It’s time to toss the tag and turf out the toll roads!”
There comes a time when it’s important to protest - to disobey the 'authorities' when their laws are unjust.
But no-one wants violent protests here, like the ‘yellow vests’ we have seen in France.
So please join us in a non-violent protest at the toll rort by supporting our Toll Strike. We will continue with further toll strikes and other non-violent civil disobedience until governments END THE TOLLS!
You can participate in the toll strike by either :
· Not using any toll road during the week of 18th – 25th January;
· Use toll roads but refuse to pay
If you want to be disobedient and not pay the tolls, please ensure you follow all the steps below and watch the short videos showing you how others have successfully done this. [I have done this myself, as have many of our members]
Step 1 – Fill out the form and join as a Toll Strike or Civil Liberties member. Once we receive your completed application form, I will send you an email with clear instructions on how to avoid paying the tolls, including form letters that you can use, if you wish.
Step 2 - Close any toll accounts you have with Transurban/Linkt, (formerly Govia), and take the toll tag off your car.
Step 3 - Write a letter to Transurban/Linkt clearly stating that you no longer wish to contract business with them, and requesting that they remove all your personal information from their database. This is important, as they will now be required to invoice you for every toll trip and post this to you.
Once we receive your completed application form, I will send you an email with the final step showing you clearly how to avoid paying the tolls, including video examples and form letters that you can use.
Why do we need $5.00, and what will we do with it?
We’re committed to ending this toll rort, but politicians only ever listen when there is an election looming.
There is an election this year and we want to stand candidates who will END THE TOLLS.
To maintain our integrity and independence, we wrote into our constitution that we cannot accept financial donations – but election campaigns need financial resources.
We do accept financial members, so your $5 to join the Toll Strike, (or $25 if you join as a Civil Liberties member), will help us get the message out there – so people can VOTE FOR NO TOLLS CANDIDATES.
As a member, you’ll also receive a regular e-newsletter to keep you informed about important developments in our fight to end the tolls and the other Civil Liberties issues that we stand for.
