The Victorian suffragettes of 1891 pressed for voting rights in a ‘Monster Petition’ and today the Victorian Women’s Trust is providing another Monster Petition so Australians can indicate their concern about
‘the almost total lack of national leadership on securing a safe climate’.
The Lead Petitioner is 2003 Australian Of The Year, Dr Fiona Stanley AC. She and the Victorian Women’s Trust are not aligned to any political party.
A 2014 Lowy Institute Poll showed:
Original, pen and ink signatures will be collected in time for the G20 in Brisbane 14-15 November and will demonstrate to the world that many Australians want effective action on reducing carbon emissions.
The Monster Petition will then be presented to the national Parliament in late November 2014.
