Yes, we all wish we didn’t need to protest, but it’s a small price to pay for living in one of the best nations on Earth. If we don’t stop this slide now, corruption and inefficiency grow stronger, and we will all be poorer in every sense of the word.
We don’t have to have a carbon tax. We don’t have to work for part of every day in order to prepare Australia for a threat that the evidence suggests is a non-event, and that most nations are not taking seriously.

CarbonReferendum.com has attracted over 25,000 signatures calling for a vote to let people decide on whether we want a carbon tax or not… again, worth getting friends to sign
Now is the time to really push the ALP into reconsidering, and show them we mean business. Once this tax is in, it will be devilishly hard to unwind. (The Liberals would have to maintain-the-determination, and win, and control the Senate). Once a trading scheme is started it will create patrons and positions that can’t be unwound. Most insidiously, all of these bad-choice policies give strength to the organizations and people who created this false scare. We feed the hand that holds us back.
UPDATE: GetUp needs your advice.
