More Aussie Music

Please sign this petition if you support Australian music. Currently, many commercial radio and television stations in Australia play less than 10% local music, while the internet is completely unregulated. More Australian music in the Australian media is vital to "developing and reflecting a sense of Australian identity, character and cultural diversity", as outlined in the Federal Government Broadcast Act. The FTA (Australia United States Free Trade Agreement) prevents the Australian government from setting the local quota higher than 25%, however, the FTA does not prevent the Australian Government from setting a minimum quota of 25% Australian music in the Australian media. Australia has local content quotas to protect local producers in television, mining, agriculture and other industries, why not music? More Australian music in the Australian media will: • revive the local recording industry • revive the live music industry • create stable employment for tens of thousands of musicians • create a booming music export market worth billions of dollars each year • keep music royalties in Australia worth hundreds of millions of dollars each year • increase music tourism to Australia worth billions more To revive the Australian music industry, the Australian Government should encourage media to play a minimum of 25% Australian music content, composed and performed by Australians, in all genres, in all Australian media, including radio, television, internet and live shows. If you feel strongly about Australian music, now is the time to stand up and do something!

Stop the attack on Australians' citizenship! Scrap the [Un]Australian Citizenship Amendment Bill. Don’t trade our liberty for so-called 'security'.

Michael Lucy from The Monthly describes the situation succinctly: Legislation that will allow the government to effectively cancel the citizenship of dual passport-holders who have committed certain terrorism-related offences has returned to Parliament. This is a considerably revised form of the Australian Citizenship Amendment (Allegiance to Australia) Bill 2015 that Tony Abbott proposed in May. Some of the quirkier parts of the bill – such as including vandalism of Commonwealth property among the offences that could lead to revocation of citizenship – have been removed, though it will still apply retrospectively, and can apply to people who have not been convicted of any crime. Labor has indicated that it will support the legislation. One important question still hasn’t really been answered: what’s the point? What does it achieve that existing legislation can’t? Will Australians fighting for Islamic State in Syria really be bothered by losing the right to the passports they have already burned? Are there people in Australia who haven’t been convicted of any offence that the government is planning to exile? And if we do start banishing people, where will they go? Is this anything more than a way of washing our hands of Australians we don’t want to deal with any more? On this issue, as with refugees, the government is pretending that shipping a problem offshore is the same as solving it. The law is also liable to set a bad precedent. A citizenship that can be cancelled is not really citizenship; it is a temporary privilege that can be demolished in a moment at the whim of a minister. No matter how great the crimes our citizens commit, they are still Australian. As the Bill’s explanatory memorandum notes, “Australian citizenship gives full and formal membership of the Australian community and is a common bond … uniting all Australians”. At the same time, it says “The Bill only applies to persons who are a national or citizen of a country other than Australia, that is, dual citizens”. Both of these can’t be true at once. Either all of us get equal treatment in the law, or dual nationals become literal second-class citizens. The Australian Citizenship Amendment Bill 2015 should be scrapped. It is time for us as a nation to face up to our real security problems and start solving them, rather than off-shoring them. Australia should rely on its courts to prosecute and punish criminal behaviour by terrorists.  Alice Hill Melbourne @backseatdriverz

Stop Scotland having another referendum against the will of the majority

Sturgeon will not accept the majority of voters in Scotland wish to stay part of the U.K. Help stop us being dragged against the will of the majority into another referendum. We voted 55% to 45% to remain in the UK. The debate is settled. It was a once in a lifetime referendum.

The Liberal Party of Australia: Reconsider your plan for a 'FTTN' NBN in favour of a superior 'FTTH' NBN

In February 2014 I tabled your petition in Parliament. Over 270,000 Australians calling for the real NBN. Unfortunately your calls to Malcolm Turnbull and the Liberal Government fell on deaf ears. Malcolm Turnbull has made a mess of the NBN. In the last three years: · the cost of his second rate NBN has doubled · the time it will take to build has doubled, and · Australia has dropped from 30th in the world for internet speeds to 60th. Malcolm Turnbull promised he could build a second rate copper NBN for $29.5 billion. This has now blown out to up to $56 billion. He also promised everyone in Australia would have access to the NBN this year. Currently less than 20 per cent of Australians have access to the NBN—a long way short of the 100 per cent he promised. Worst of all, many Australians are getting a slower, second rate copper NBN that will not meet their needs into the future. Malcolm Turnbull’s second rate NBN is holding Australia back. He is building a broadband network that won’t meet the needs of Australian businesses and families in the future. That’s why Labor has just announced that if elected a Shorten Labor Government will rollout Fibre-to-the-Premises to up to two million additional Australian homes and businesses. Only Labor is listening. And only Labor will fix Malcolm Turnbull’s mess and build the NBN we need to create the jobs of the future.
