Current e-Petitions for the Legislative Council

Say No to race-dividing ‘Voice’ in WA Constitution

Eligibility : Residents of Western Australia Only

To the President and Members of the Legislative Council of the Parliament of Western Australia in Parliament assembled. We the undersigned ...

1. Are relieved that the shambolic rollout of the WA Labor Government’s Aboriginal Cultural Heritage laws has been halted by the introduction of a repeal Bill;
2. Remain concerned that the Premier refuses to provide to Parliament the advice he and his predecessor have received on the implications to our State of the proposed referendum to create a Federal ‘Voice’;
3. Are particularly concerned that Health Minister Sanderson has stated she is “certainly” in favour of creating a ‘Voice’ to the WA Parliament and that the Premier has declined to give an unequivocal commitment to not do so;
4. Call on the Legislative Council to ensure that that any legislation seeking to change the Western Australian Constitution to enshrine a ‘Voice’ to WA Parliament is rejected.

And your petitioners as in duty bound, will ever pray.
