    Default Contacting Oz Senators before March 18

    I know you've probably already been contacting all the Senators since this came up in November, but in the next 9 days there is one last opportunity.

    Copypasta from wwp:

    The four key people who need to receive our emails and phone calls now are:


    1. Leader of the Opposition, Tony Abbott - Tony.Abbott.MP@aph.gov.au
      Tel: (02) 6277 4022
      Fax: (02) 6277 8562
    2. Leader of the Nationals in the Senate, Senator Barnaby Joyce - senator.joyce@aph.gov.au
      Phone: (02) 6277 3244
      Fax: (02) 6277 3246
    3. Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd (online form) - Email your Prime Minister | Prime Minister of Australia
      Tel: (02) 6277 7700
      Fax: (02) 6273 4100
    4. Leader of the Government in the Senate, Senator Chris Evans - senator.evans@aph.gov.au
      Phone: (02) 6277 7860
      Fax: (02) 6273 4144
    I think this is very important. Senate vote is just days away. This could be it.

    If you've already contacted the key people and you want to contact more of the Senators their phone numbers are here - Parliament of Australia:Senate:Senators:Senators' Parliament House and State/Territory addresses, phone and fax numbers

    emails can be accessed through this page (I think we had a full list somewhere a while ago)
    Parliament of Australia:Senate:Senators:Homepages by Political Party

    Nick Xenophon and the Greens are already on side. As far as we know the rest are not.
    Here is a full list of the Senators email addresses - should be easier to email them all using this - http://forums.whyweprotest.net/318-s...7-1-but-57152/


    AUSSIES! It is time to pick up your phones and talk. Anyone who has watched the Four Corners report has a right to ask that their representatives examine an organisation that is systematically abusing our fellow citizens. The current taxation arrangement means that Australian taxpayers are effectively subsidising the abuses within Scientology.

    phone numbers here:
    Parliament of Australia:Senate:Senators:Senators' Parliament House and State/Territory addresses, phone and fax numbers

    We only have days left - Xenophon is raising it in Parliament on the 18th of March 2010.

    Default Australian Senate Vote coming March 18

    http://parlinfo.aph.gov.au/parlInfo/...sCount=Default

    Scroll down to 9.

    Senator Xenophon to postpone business of the Senate notice of motion no. 1 (reference to the Community Affairs References Committee application of certain Commonwealth laws to the Church of Scientology ) and general business notice of motion no. 527 (introduction of the Water Licence Moratorium Bill 2009) to 18 March 2010
    March 18 is a Thursday - I've been looking around the Oz Parliament's site and they sometimes offer the chance to watch streaming video. Not sure if it's available outside Australia, though.

    So March 18 is the big day!

    It is possible to watch the proceedings LIVE.

    I've no idea when the vote takes place on the 18th, but I'll keep checking back. There are still 8 days to drum up interest in and support for a CoS inquiry.

    The Senators generally work out their "call", by a few days prior to the vote at the latest, so emails should probably be sent in by the 15th (USA 14th). The sooner, the better.

    Cool on the live stream! Closer to the time, we'll be able to let you know *roughly* what time this matter will be being addressed.

    From wwp:

    Adding a fifth key person to the list for us to contact:

    Senator Cory Bernardi: Senator for South Australia

    Party: Liberal Party of Australia
    Parliament Contact: Phone: (02) 6277 3278 Fax: (02) 6277 5783
    Email: senator.bernardi@aph.gov.au


    Senator Bernardi addressed the Senate proposal on Thursday last and is obviously concerned to protect the human right of freedom of religion.

    If ex-scientologists were to contact the Senator and tell their story, that may help him to reevaluate his position with respect to more narrow terms of reference.

    Default Deadline!

    Please do call and email, folks. Bumping for those who haven't contacted the list yet.
