Corporate influence is undermining our democracy

When #OurDemocracy is fair, all of us can thrive.

The #OurDemocracy campaign is a nation-wide movement of people and organisations who want a healthy Australian democracy which works for us, not just for the powerful few.

What’s the Big Deal?

We’ve been working with the team behind this new film that digs into the influence of money and big business on our democracy, and what we can do about it.

What’s the Problem?

We vote in politicians to represent us and our interests. But too often, it’s powerful corporations with deep pockets who are setting the policy agenda.

Here’s how we win:

We need to reset the rules of our democracy so it will work better for all of us.

Through significant legislative reform and the building of a powerful movement of concerned Australians, we’ll show that our democracy must put people first, not corporate profits.

The Framework

Our Framework for a Fair Democracy outlines a series of common sense, comprehensive reforms that would break the cycle of corporate donations and cosy relationships with our elected representatives.

People Power

Together, we will take action demanding political support for the Framework for a Fair Democracy, creating a political problem for any party, MP or candidate that does the wrong thing.

Expose the problem

Sunshine is the best disinfectant. We’ll expose all the ways in which our political leaders are selling us out, and hold those who do the wrong thing to account, and we are going to remind them that they work for us, their voters.
