The Issues

While big polluters heat our planet, health care workers turn up for shifts exhausted, and repeated calls for stronger protections for First Nations cultural heritage sites go unanswered, this government has failed to listen and failed to lead.

They’ve put their big business and mining mates before us all.

All around us, people are finding ways to create a better country - one where we can all thrive.

Our communities have the solutions we need to address interconnected issues like inequality and climate change. We just need candidates and politicians to commit to policies for a better future.

Health justice

These past few years, all of us have felt the effects of a government who turned their backs on public health when they should have been keeping us safe.

Our health system is broken, and it is disproportionately hitting First Nations communities, fuelled by the under-resourcing of Aboriginal-led health organisations, a housing crisis and a lack of access to health services.

First Nations communities, nurses, aged care workers, and people across the continent are stepping up and speaking out, helping each other and demanding health justice.

Cultural heritage is everyone's responsibility. Now is the time to unite behind First Nations communities and demand all cultural heritage is protected.

That means a time-bound and federally funded commitment to a Federal Heritage Act in consultation with First Nations communities.

Real climate action

The Morrison Government pretends to act on climate change, but they've increased public funding to corporations who burn coal, oil and gas by 48%[1].

It's up to all of us to vote for representatives who will end fossil fuel subsidies, honestly back clean energy solutions – and look after communities, no matter where we live.
