Change the name of Batman electorate NOW!!!

This petition had 165 supporters

John Batman was obviously influential in the settlement of Melbourne, but he also led the massacres and murders of Aboriginal children, men and women in Van Diemen's Land and took possession of two young Aboriginal boys. This is all information that is very much in the public domain, and even Wikipedia gives a comprehensive account of Batman's vile murders. The time in which the crimes of prominent Australian men were suppressed should be well behind us and it is an insult to all Australians that his name should have such prominence in a Victorian electorate.
