Many Australians are deeply concerned with the way our country is being governed. Not just at the present moment, but in general. They are concerned over issues which directly affect them, their families, and indeed all Australians. They are concerned about the policies and behaviour of all Australian political parties. They are concerned with the direction in which Australia’s great civil society is heading.

Democracy doesn’t end at the ballot box. It is the right, if not duty, of all Australians to hold our elected representatives to account; to remind them that they are, above all else, public servants. We must inform them regularly, daily if need be, of our concerns with the issues that affect all Australians. We must participate directly in our democracy in order for it to be truly representative.

WHAT DO WE WANT?

We know that a majority of Australians expect their government to:
– Respect the diversity of Australian families
– Respect our shared humanity and the rule of law
– Respect expert opinion in science, technology and education
– Respect Australia’s resources and heritage, now and for future generations.

Key policy areas that are covered by these four principles include:
Education.
Health care.
The environment.
Human rights.
International affairs.
Science and technology.
Trade and finance.

Within each of these areas there are dozens of specific issues that affect all Australians, now and for generations to come. It is on these issues that we must raise our voices. We all want what’s best for Australia; let’s tell our elected representatives directly how we want that to happen.

March in March.
Australians united for better government.
