Redirect $500 million from planned War Memorial upgrade to our Rural Fire Services

Our Rural Fire Services are desperately under resourced. Our fire affected communities need every assistance possible to get back on their feet. Our nation is experiencing a crisis with the intense physical conditions of a war zone.  Now is not the time to spend $500 million of tax payers money on expansion and redecoration of the War Memorial.  It is simply not a priority for the nation. The government should be spending funds to make sure our Rural Fire Service is adequately resourced and that affected communities are fully supported to get back on their feet. At this time, the government should invest in the wellbeing of our here and now heroes - our RFS firefighters and ordinary Australians on the front line of this fire devastation. Ask the government to rescind its War Memorial funding and spend money where it is badly needed. Please share this petition. Thank you.
