Have your voice heard. Sign the parliamentary petition today
The petition is only available on the Government site for 30 days, don’t delay
We request the house to review funding for institutions who fail to allow free speech, fail to fulfil their charter, and who fail to apply their own Codes of Conduct.
When breaches occur, these should be met with punitive measures including withholding funding, until such time breaches are addressed and reversed.
It is a 3 step process.
