Please sign this petition. It only takes a second (the first one at the top of the page is enough).
Victoria has been subjected to the longest and most draconian lockdown in the country, your freedom has been restricted, yet the results have been the worst so far. (I'm not only talking about cases of Covid-19, but about all other consequences that we're seeing and we are yet see with more clarity in years to come).
We don't need to go into details of public knowledge about the errors committed by both the Federal and State governments, but one thing is clear, governments need to be scrutinised. That's how things are meant to work in a liberal democracy.
At present, the Victorian government has had unprecedented powers for the last six months, and wants to extend them for another 12 months. The obvious mistakes made by them show that we cannot give them another blank cheque to do whatever they want with your life for another whole year.
Whatever you think of their handling of the pandemic, a cease of the state of emergency won't render any government powerless to deal with any outbreaks nor will stop them from implementing any reasonable measures deemed necessary. On the contrary it will make parliament resume its normal functioning. That way, the government's plans (whatever they may be) will be properly scrutinised by our legitimate representatives.
Please spend just a second of your time and help stop this unnecessary and authoritarian plan of extending the state of emergency in Victoria. Please sign this petition. Provide your (VIC) postcode and it will be forwarded to your local MP.
