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.

Things are improving!

"I cover transportation and have had a front-row seat for the last decade as a deluge of change has arrived. You might think that if I were to look back, I’d say that the electric car is the biggest change I’ve seen. Tesla is a $US50-billion-market-cap company after all — larger by that measure that Ford and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles!

But you’d be wrong...

By far the biggest transportation change I’ve seen is the explosion in bicycle riding...Whereas 20 years ago, you took your life into your own hands if you tried to ride from New York’s Upper East Side to Midtown, these days a vast flotilla of bikes has been integrated into the city’s transportation ecosystem."

USA: "Since it was published last year, the map has become both a guide and an advocacy tool. Local cyclists can plan their trip to avoid the most trafficked roads, and point to the map to show local policymakers where cycling is close to impossible."

Istanbul: Coming to clear a blocked cycle lane near you? This one is making the rounds on Twitter - a new tow truck capable of removing a parked car in under 60 seconds!

There are a few city councils who should be putting this on their shopping list or next towing supplier contract! Perhaps we might get things going with a Kickstarter?
