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.

NSW: Finally! A rail trail bill has been passed through Parliament that allows for the construction of a 22 km rail trail between Rosewood and Tumbarumba! As we understand it, the bill does not secure any funding but it does dedicate re-purposing to only a rail trail and that it remains Crown Land.

The approved bill falls far short of the Wagga to Tumbarumba proposal that would have really set the stage for a major trail worthy of a weekend round-trip.

Nevertheless, this outcome rewards the efforts of many of the members of the Rosewood to Tumbarumba Rail Trail group - supported by Rail Trails Australia, BNSW, Bicycle Network, Rail Trails NSW and the Australian Cyclists Party - who have been working towards this outcome for over a decade.

It should have been done long ago, and there should be many more but the first is always the most difficult and we just hope this will set things in motion elsewhere. The challenge in NSW will however remain that each rail section application for conversion must go through Parliament for release individually.

Welcome aboard NSW!

Bike share: a new system, already in Melbourne, allows pick up and drop off anywhere you like. Will it beat Sydney's traffic? These bikes would need to be pretty slow not to beat peak car speeds.
