At next Saturday’s meeting of Victoria First, a motion about the REDUCE IMMIGRATION campaign will be proposed. Here’s the wording:
That Victoria First:
- endorse the REDUCE IMMIGRATION write-on campaign as a non-partisan strategy to raise awareness of the need to reduce net overseas immigration;
- encourage voters to use their ballot papers as a legitimate vehicle for popularising the REDUCE IMMIGRATION message;
- advocate the benefits of the campaign to other organisations (e.g. SPA, SPP, ACF, Greens, etc) that share Victoria First’s concern about high immigration rates force-feeding our high population growth rate; and
- promote the REDUCE IMMIGRATION write-on campaign as part of Victoria First’s communications to its members and to the general public.
The meeting is open to everyone: to members of Victoria First (an incorporated association that is ‘fighting to halt rapid population growth’) as well as to all others. If you are in Victoria on Saturday 2 August, please attend this public meeting and support the discussion.
If you can’t attend but you support the motion, why not email your endorsement of it to Kelvin Thomson MP, the President of Victoria First (Kelvin.Thomson.MP@aph.gov.au).
If you like, copy us in (email@example.com).
Regardless of where you live, this is an important opportunity to publicise the REDUCE IMMIGRATION campaign.
