2. on the orders of Peter Dutton or Scott Morrison. Isn't it interesting to note that these New Zealand visitors traveled from Sydney onward to WA & Victoria both states with Labor governments and not to SA or Tasmania, Liberal governments. Victorians are living & working under
3. very strict lockdown regulations esp in Melbourne. People only allowed 5 km from their homes, those who had office jobs to work from home, only allowed out to shop for essential items (food & medicine) to exercise or to go to medical appointments. These restrictions were
4. only lifted today 18/10/2020 after case numbers had fallen from 752 cases to 1-5 day. The travel bubble outside one's home was enlarged to 25km and the restriction on the time permitted for exercise was lifted. More businesses will be allowed to recommence operations.
5. This morning I hear Josh Frydenberg the deputy leader of the Federal Liberal party and a Victorian having another whinge about Victoria not opening up fast enough. Crying for ALL those businesses that are NOW going to FAIL because according to the roadmap laid out by the
6. state government not ALL businesses can re-open. Especially those deemed high risk for transmission of the virus 🦠. The state government is still working with these industries and businesses to develop Covid safe workplaces and plans so they can minimise the risks to staff
7. and customers/clients. Put in place recording systems so that if there is an outbreak tracking and tracing is expedited by good record keeping by retailers,restaurants, hotels,pubs, cafes, resorts, recreational facilities etc

2. centres being refurbished & made ready to welcome returnees? If that is deemed too costly cf to the obviously high risk hotel quarantine ( HQ),in the middle of our cities. In Victoria HQ has been poorly managed & plagued with poor lines of communication btw multiple depts
3. in the State bureaucracy. One Minister and the most senior State public servant have been forced to resign over this major stuff up. Although in hindsight quarantine should never have been set up in our capital cities with guards, nurses, hotel staff etc coming into daily

2. above the Henderson poverty line and keeping there permanently by legislation the government will thousands of Aussies and their children 👶 out of poverty. This one action will improve people’s physical & mental health by allowing them to buy healthy food,afford to fill their

1. Mr Kevin Rudd's petition EN 1938
Our democracy depends on diverse sources of reliable, accurate & independent news. Media ownership is becoming more concentrated alongside new business models that encourage deliberately polarizing
2. & politically manipulated news. We are especially concerned that Australia’s print media is overwhelmingly controlled by News Corporation, founded by Fox News billionaire Rupert Murdoch, with around two-thirds of daily newspaper @BlackDouglas @Vic_Rollison @judyfree10
3.This power is routinely used to attack opponents in business & politics by blending editorial opinion with news reporting. Australians who hold contrary views have been intimidated into silence. These facts chill free speech and undermine public debate.

2. Aussies can't even return home due to caps imposed on arrivals by the Federal government. The purported reason being limits on the number of places available in "hotel quarantine" which is operated by State governments. The Commonwealth has NOT opened its own facilities as
3. quarantine stations. The gov could use military bases, in every State, and Immigration detention centres (Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth & Adelaide) to quarantine arriving passengers. Why haven't they started preparing these places to receive people? Qantas & other carriers could

2. been running a mass migration scheme to maintain the fantasy of “perpetual economic growth” and rising GDP. The Covid-19 pandemic has forced Australia 🇦🇺 to shut itself off from the outside world to protect its population from the ravages of this new Corona virus 🦠. This has
3. effectively stopped migration dead in its tracks. The government can’t even arrange repatriation flights for Australian citizens stranded overseas let alone bring in immigrants in large numbers. However they have made exceptions for wealthy individuals to enter Australia 🇦🇺

1. The three English speaking countries, USA, UK and Australia, that have allowed Rupert Murdoch to establish a major presence in their media markets have all elected right wing populist leaders Donald J Trump, Boris Johnson and Scott Morrison. Donald Trump would NOT be POTUS
2. without the active support of Murdoch's extreme right wing Fox news channel. Ailes had worked as a media consultant to Republican Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George H W Bush and for Rudy Giuliani .Rupert Murdoch hired Ailes in 1996 to become the CEO of Fox News.
3. Roger Ailes already had an inbuilt right wing audience watching Fox News when Trump threw his hat in the ring to run for President in 2016. In 2016, Ailes became an adviser to the Donald Trump campaign, where he assisted with debate preparation.
