Older Australians

To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives

This petition of concerned citizens draws to the attention of the House:

As representatives of retired trade unionists, we warn the House and older Australians that radio shock jocks and the Murdoch Press are manipulating retirees, in a "Tea Party" campaign on Canberra. This is an attempt to bring down the Labor government and insert Big Capital's man, the Leader of the Opposition, the Hon. Tony Abbott into the Lodge. Members of CRUMA strongly protest against the extreme right and mining corporations, wanting to remove an elected government by using these tactics. We call on the Australian people to support our voting rights.

We ask the House to request the Leader of the Opposition, the Hon. Tony Abbott, to explain how older Australians would not be damaged by his "seventy billion dollar financial policy deficit."
