Last night, in spite of overwhelming community and business opposition, the Liberal National Government joined the Elephant Shooters Party and the Christian Democrats to halve your say in City of Sydney local elections.
It's an outrageously undemocratic move to double the votes of big corporations and halve the votes of residents.
The Bill attacks small and medium businesses as well. They will be subject to more red tape including intrusive questions and new fines up to $2,200 if they don't answer them without a 'reasonable excuse'.
The Liberal National Government, vested interest and right wing media, want to get rid of independent, progressive, community-led government. They want the City back.
They've tried this kind of thing before. By moving boundaries and changing voting rules, they have tried to get their mates in power. But you can fight back.
We will fight this. When they commit these bastard acts, it makes you want to fight harder.
Help fund the fight. Let's show the Liberal Nationals, the Shooters and the Christian Democrats that even when they try to rig elections and remove the community's power - they won't get away with it.
Our progressive agenda is too important to be handed over to conservatives who are taking orders from right wing media and vested interest.Fight to protect our environmental program, our bike lanes, our cultural and arts programs, our support for small and medium businesses, and our high standards for development and design.
Take a stand. Progressive government in our City is worth fighting for.
