The ‘Australian Alliance’ will be based on uniting Independent candidates, advocates, lobbyists and concerned community members together under one banner. This document contains the basic core directives that will unite all Australian Alliance members.
The website www.australianalliance.org will
· Explain the core directives
· Contain clear Topic headings for ease of use
· Be an educational tool for candidates, the public and our representatives
· List issues of community concern to aid debate
· Discuss necessary reforms
Help working groups unite
We will also create our own media liaison and utilise our own Independent news services.
Our main goal is to show the solidarity of a political party/lobby group using basic policy directives without dictating to those with special interests. All other issues will be by independent choice to ensure any members with political ambitions are free to represent their electorates.
The core directives will unite people with expertise and special interests to work together to collate and publish the core issues of their topic. This will help educate the community, our candidates and our supposed representatives already in parliament. We can then work on the necessary reforms needed to bring change in line with community standards.
Between elections we also work as a grass roots support group for people in need. We will support ailing small business and our primary production industry. This could be as simple as fixing a wheelchair to more complex ideals like Farm Direct markets. We will also be lobbying for a variety of reforms and fighting to define and increase our rights and liberties.
Core directives to be debated
· DEMOCRATIC REFORMS:
Appoint an independent body to oversee electoral conduct and legislative change, to ensure and empower a free and informed vote. Increased security of the ballot, up to date electoral rolls and improved identity and counting procedures.
· GROCERY INDUSTRY REFORMS:
Ensure adequate support to Australian producers and growers, honest labelling in respect to country of origin and GM content. Initiate an overhaul of the grocery industry to improve competition.
· LAND, FARM, WATER AND INFRASTRUCTURE OWNERSHIP:
Initiate legislation to enforce a minimum 51% Australian ownership plan, becoming retrospective over 10 years.
· OVERHAUL OF THE LEGAL SYSTEM:
Ensure affordable and just outcomes for every Australian with increased use of juries and reforms to the federal family courts. Guarantee that every Australian is afforded competent representation, the presumption of innocence and equitable outcomes.
· BILL OF RIGHTS:
The introduction of a bill of rights for all South Australians with continued lobbying for it to be adopted at a national level and its inclusion in the national curriculum.
· SELF SUFFICIENCY IN FOOD PRODUCTION:
The abolition of the National Resource Management board, to be replaced with an independent body comprised of Farmers, Producers and Environmental experts in equitable numbers. Equity in farming practices with subsidies to enable competition with all imported produce.
· ESSENTIAL SERVICES:
Put essential services back into the tax payers’ hands by cutting out the middle man to lower the direct cost to the consumer.
· PENSIONS VETERANS AND UNEMPLOYED:
Ensure welfare services keep up with the cost of living through the adoption of an adequate percentage of Australian Weekly Ordinary Times Earnings (AWOT) with increases to be kept in line with CPI.
Increased investment in education at all levels, including improved resources for the disadvantaged and equitable placement for Australian citizens.
· HEALTH CARE:
Provide a healthcare model that offers effective collaboration between all services, to provide for the essential primary healthcare needs of the community. Arrange for supervision and allocation of funds to both secondary and tertiary healthcare services, ensuring that all essential healthcare services are available to the community. This would be maintained in a multidisciplinary approach incorporating quality and quantity of service.
· SUPPORT THE DISADVANTAGED:
Abolish by funding all critical waiting lists, and improve resources for stigma reduction, education and employment services.
· ANIMAL WELFARE:
Set up a proper, independent board to oversee animal welfare and legislative reforms. This would be done through transparent community consultation processes hosted by experts in animal welfare.
The freedom of choice, association, and freedom of our person, must be legislated and protected.
· PUBLIC TRANSPORT:
Our transport services need major overhauls and this would be done in consultation with the public on community needs and expectations.
· MOTORING REFORMS:
There needs to be equity in all laws associated with motor registration and engineering standards Australia wide. The Laws of prosecution should uphold the premise of innocent until proven guilty.
All moneys raised for environmental and habitat restoration to be spent onshore to ensure clean safe water, food and air with government incentives for innovation and improvements.
· INTERNATIONAL POLITICS:
To debate the introduction of the United Nations’ directives on monitory policy, animal welfare, the environment and immigration and the effect this would have on Australian sovereignty.
Fight for increased and defined services to restore accountability and public confidence.
Work to ensure equality for all Australians and visitors to our fine nation, regardless of sex, colour or creed.
Each topic to be refined in one paragraph and a dot point expansion of each topic will be by the debate of all members on equal footing. These are not policy but more so an educational tool. Members with political aspirations MUST adhere to the core directives, if they wish to use the logo during their independent campaigns.
Those with political aspirations work together like a political party, affordable membership to all those who back our core directives, each candidate supported by the Alliance puts in $1000 and pays their own nomination. The $1000 and any moneys raised or donated by our supporters for this purpose, will be used for an advertising campaign starting no less than ten days before each election in each state that the nominations and funding are so raised.
All candidate posters are to be in the Australian Alliance colour scheme and include the Australian alliance Logo; otherwise the contents are up to the individual candidate. The idea of this group is to ensure that any elected member can freely represent their electorates with the backing of an informed, educated and genuine grass roots lobby organisation.
A board meeting will be held every three months except during election cycles when they will be held monthly. The board is to consist of the spokesperson, four aspiring candidates, and five members that speak on behalf of their divisions of the Alliance.
Media releases from each division (based on core directives) will go out using the logo in the heading. Any other talk back or media related comment by members, must only use the word supporter and confirm it is their personal view, unless it is a core directive.
As a group we unite to help people in need, support the concept of out Farm Direct Markets, work on opening markets in our respective areas, and helping existing markets to ensure our food security.
If any division of the Australian Alliance holds a rally or intervention, they can do so with our support, ensuring as a group we can become a credible force as a lobbying organisation.
T shirts, polo tops, stickers, signs and flyers can be produced in bulk to keep the costs down, but they must include the logo. The Australian Alliance has a dark green, yellow and gold theme but the option of black and white varieties will be allowed.
Each supporter will be able to download and copy flyers and information to share with their friends, family and community. Any money collected by fundraising for support services will be used for education or for those in need, by way of a vote of the members.
We start now, and also work towards contesting the looming State election in March, please forward me your ideals, feedback and personal interest.
‘So far initial response is very good with people from a variety of back grounds interested in becoming a part of the Alliance either as candidates, professional advisors or community advocates. We have farmers, grocery industry experts, IT people, lawyers and barristers, pokie reform experts, Legislators, rights based experts, specialists in international politics, child protection and health care workers, animal welfare experts, immigration, and many more and of course the varied studies of the experienced political team......and the interest is Australia wide.’
