Let’s write our next chapter
Australia is the only western democracy which does not protect the basic rights and freedoms of its people through legislation or in the constitution. This means that our rights, which have been hard-won, can be unwound too easily by the old parties or corporations.
We believe that the rights of people are far more important than the rights of corporations, that’s why we’ve launched this campaign to protect our economic, employment, civil, cultural and environmental rights.
A Charter of Rights will give us all the opportunity to shape our own lives and help us to live with dignity and self-respect. It’s time to write the next chapter in the Australian story. A Charter of Rights is part of that story.
