We are facing challenging times. The economy is not meeting the needs of society and may soon fall over the precipice. Global warming brings a threat on a scale that we have never seen before. Democratic rights are being curtailed. Meanwhile, the billionaires continue to have their pockets filled by crooked politicians. This should not be the Australia we want.
The onus is on us, to find a way out of this mess and chart a clear alternative direction. We must focus on what is most important and leave differences behind.
Australian for a New Democracy has emerged to champion this cause. We are not associated with a political party.
Progress can only be made through widespread consultation and the involvement of many within their communities, organisations, and workplaces. Join us.
Come along to this forum. Hear the speakers and contribute to the discussion. The aim is to achieve agreement on some practical measures that will take us onto the next step.
