Max, it’s great to see those stories coming through, we came across this story today about keeping German rail in public hands. http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/11/19/us-germany-privatisation-deutsche-bahn-idUSKCN0J31WL20141119
What sort of Queensland do we want to live in?
That's the question many Queenslanders have been asking as they have seen Campbell Newman's government move to trample on the separation of powers, judicial independence in Queensland, and attacking parliamentarians who question them, by introducing laws that give the government the power to indefinitely detain people and to arrest people because of who they are with not what they do and to stifle debate.
That's why we're asking you to stand up against these attacks on the judiciary, these attacks on the separation of power, these attacks on the basic tenets of our democracy.
We know that Campbell Newman and his government are sensitive to public pressure. Let's give them a message so clear that they can't ignore: by being part of this today.
Together, you and I can step up to stop Campbell Newman's power grab and stand for a better Queensland.
Let's get to it.
Working For Queenslanders answered 2013-11-14 13:32:28 +1000Q: What message do you think will help us change the conversation for judicial independence in Queensland?
A: Focus on the separation of powers
Thousands of Queenslanders have stepped up already in support of judicial independence against Campbell Newman's political attacks by signing our Change.org petition.
We know there is more to do to change the conversation in Queensland and to demonstrate to politicians that further power grabs undermine the Queensland so many people have worked so hard to build.
We know we need to do more to grow our campaign and to get the message out there. That's why we're asking supporters like you, people who have stepped up before, to do it again by sharing your ideas for the tactics we should take next.
Thank you in advance for having your say and growing our movement for a better Queensland, for standing for judicial independence not shortsighted political attacks.
You've done it before, now you can help determine the next steps, answer YES or NO on the first question below to start the brief four question survey.
We'll be in touch soon with the results and what we can do to grow our voice for judicial independence in Queensland.
