The following email to PWF makes me wonder WHY we can’t get a measured discussion going on major issues like the carbon tax. WHAT is mainstream media delivering? WHERE is the Climate Commission? Surely complexity is a lame excuse?
“We are about to witness something truly historic.
In just a few weeks, thousands of trucks, trailers, campers, caravans, buses, and cars from all over Australia will descend upon Canberra to deliver a clear message: the Australian people demand an election now!!!
In total, eleven convoys from all across Australia are to converge in Canberra on August 22 – and I hope you might be able to join them!
As beef farmer, mum of four, and rally organiser Cate Stuart said:
“it’s not just a single issue that we’re representing; it’s everything. People are just so dissatisfied with so many things… the biggest grievances are related to the carbon tax and live export crisis, but also cover everything from job security and overseas aide funding, to economic instability, policing, and palliative care.
People are worried about instability. They don’t care whether it’s a Labor government, a Coalition government or even if it’s a Greens government…They’re saying, ‘we don’t believe in the government at the moment because it’s unstable.’
To join in this convoy is obviously a great commitment, and we do not expect everyone to be able to make it (although if you can, click here for details!) But maybe even if you can’t join in, you can help spread the word. You can tell your family, tell your friends, or maybe even help send a message to the media. Click here for a full list of ways you can help pass on the message.
This is a great opportunity, and we hope you will be able to take part in any way you can! If you want any further information, or have any questions, please visit the Just Grounds website.”
Is this the only way to get a two-way conversation going?
