Adrian Whitehead: Another population aware Melbourne By-Election Candidate

I've just been made aware that there is another population aware candidate in the Melbourne by-election tomorrow. The relevant part of his policy is to "Reduce population to sustainable levels by allowing birth rates to decline naturally (remove the baby bonus) and reduce immigration rates; Accept regional climate refugees and commence migration of drowning pacific island communities; Transition to a non growth based economy, continue knowledge growth and service and technological improvements." Inside is his full platform.

Joe Toscano's Radical Independent platform for the Melbourne By-Election

"There is not one independent in the Victorian Legislative Assembly or the Victorian Legislative Council, let alone a RADICAL INDEPENDENT. Power in a democratic society should rest in the hands of the people, not the State, corporate boardrooms or the Government of the day. Real power no longer resides in Parliament, it lies in the hands of unaccountable corporations that increasingly dictate the Legislative agenda. As we move from a period of relative abundance to scarcity as a consequence of the domination of the world economy by corporate capitalism an economic system based on the creation of ever increasing profits irrespective of the human, social and environmental costs, the ever increasing consumption of finite resources, increasing population growth and increasing greenhouse emissions as a result of human activity, we require radical changes to the way we govern ourselves, what we produce, how we produce it and how we live." - Joe Toscano

Vote for Joe Toscano in Melbourne by-election 2012

In a fortuitous collision of pique, the Greens and Labor have preferenced Radical Independent Dr Joe Toscano ahead of each other in this Melbourne by-election. Toscano has his finger on the political pulse of this nation because he has an in depth knowledge of Australian history and what we have all lost through corporatisation, privatisation, overpopulation and a corrupt public and commercial media. Hopefully many of the public will actually put Joe first. Although Your ABC Radio has shamefully refused to include Joe Toscano or other alternatives in its by-election broadcast from the Victoria Markets on Friday, a parallel but democratic gathering 8.30 to 12pm at corner of Therry and Queen Street, Victoria Markets will give publicity and information about other candidates. Please join it. As the writer of this article and with a strong acquaintance with Joe, I can make no higher recommendation than Vote 1 for Joe Toscano! See inside for Joe's platform and how you can help and contact details.
