I propose a mass demonstration, THIS WEEK, by Australian voters who would like to ensure our politicians actually take notice of how we want to be governed.
They do not appear to have received the message we sent them at the ballot box on Saturday, that we are not happy with either of the two major parties.
In the spirit of the trend for stealing each other’s colours, policies and prejudices, I propose we call ourselves the New Coalition.
I propose a mass demo sometime this week, while they are negotiating their deals behind closed doors with the Independents and the Greens.
I propose that we demonstrate with banners proclaiming our instructions to them to provide us with a government that is inclusively democratic, intelligent, compassionate and rigorously honest and open. After all, we pay their wages, they are responsible to all of US, not just whoever they think voted for them.
I propose that we wear gags over our mouths, in honour of the fact that we, the people, were silenced by the nature of this presidential style campaign.
If you think there is a germ of an idea here, please get in touch, and let’s Take Action to Move Forward Together to a New kind of government, one that actually represents the people of Australia, not just the interests of a few power-hungry politicians.
