So much at stake, make sure your voice matters - GetUp (video)


A GetUp volunteer tells of her years as an Australian and how the country has changed direction in the last 15 or so years. How our politicians have become mean and nasty, uncaring about the plight of the less fortunate and hard nosed ideologues. Love and compassion, particularly under the Lieberals, has almost become a dirty word.

I've said it many times here, the way the hard right christians in Canberra have firmly stood in the way of marriage equality, it seems they wouldn't know love if it came up and bit them on the ass. Standing in the way of David and I's love; a metaphor for the whole Lieberal party.

This isn't the Australia I found when I arrived here from New Zealand in 1985. Australia was a progressive country at the forefront of social reforms. Today in 2016 we don't even have marriage equality.

Make sure your vote counts this Sat. 

Vote for love, not hate.
