Petition to the Abbott Government

March Australia (formerly March in March Australia) is a grassroots people's movement which began on social media and developed rapidly in early 2014. It is now an alliance of more than 40 regional groups acting locally and sometimes nationally to protest the socially regressive decisions and policies of the Coaliton government under the banner of “The People United For Better Government”. If you feel passionately about the issues raised by the current governance of our country but are unable to attend any marches, you may care to have your say by signing this petition expressing our concerns to the Abbott Government. Australians who value decency, accountability and transparency are aware that Coalition government decisions are not upholding Australia’s egalitarian values. This government, by favouring business and vested interests above the common good is turning Australia into a less inclusive and caring society. Our movement is people-powered and unassociated with any individual, political party or organisation. We are all volunteers and our rallies are peaceful and family-friendly. Our members come from all backgrounds and walks of life. Our shared goal is to achieve the higher standard of government this country deserves. March Australia unites all people who will stand up for the Fair Go. We strive for an Australia where: education, healthcare and social support based upon equality and compassion is accessible to all and not just the few. our shared natural environment is protected and conserved for the future. social justice and human rights are respected. We are calling for policy-making based on evidence-based research, expert opinion and economic modelling rather than ideological beliefs. As concerned Australian citizens, we hereby call on the Abbott Government to govern with decency, transparency and to be accountable to all people, not just those they deem worthy. We call on all members of parliament and all senators to carefully consider the impacts of the policies they are implementing upon individuals and groups within our society.
