Science Party and Australian Cyclists Party in Election Coalition
Today the Science Party and the Australian Cyclists Party announce they are forming a coalition to contest the upcoming Federal election. Both parties have come together to press for changes in priorities across issues that other parties are ignoring or failing to address adequately.
JOIN THE POLITICAL MARDI GRAS… to celebrate unity in diversity. This Sunday 1 May, 2pm at Martin Place, Sydney.
25% of Australians do not vote for a major party, yet if the new senate election voting system is upheld in court then that’s all you get as your voting option.
The left and right minor political parties have united to protect your democratic right to vote for a minor party – of any persuasion. To find out more visit 3mv.net.au – an alliance representing 3 million voices who vote for the minor parties at federal elections.
On 2 May, the recent electoral voting changes are being challenged in the High Court of Australia, as unconstitutional.
This Sunday 1 May a rally is being held in Sydney, Martin Place at 2pm in support of this High Court Challenge. It is the “Hands off Our Senate Rally” and I urge you to join me, and supporters of the 20+ minor parties who will become extinct in future elections, to object to this undemocratic, un-representative, unconstitutional change to our vote for representatives of the Senate. Your attendance at the rally will support the High Court Challenge.
HAVE A VOICE IN YOUR DEMOCRATIC FUTURE AND REMEMBER DIVERSITY BRINGS STRENGTH TO A SPECIES, AN ORGANISATION… AND OUR PARLIAMENT AND NATION.
Cancel your golf or bike ride or long lunch – meet at Martin Place for a POLITICAL MARDI GRAS… celebrate unity in diversity.
