Urgent call to action!
Tomorrow morning we are calling on all our South Australian supporters to join together in a 'Collective Shout' against Wicked Campers.
There will be a gathering at 9:30am on the steps of Parliament House, right before a bill will be debated to deregister vans that breach the advertising code.
Between now and then will you email your local member and encourage them to support this bill? MPs need to know this is an issue the community cares about.
Here are 4 key points to help get you started. Express these in your own words.
- Wicked Campers are notorious for their sexually explicit slogans and imagery, even advocating rape and murder.
- Ad Standards has upheld complaints more than 80 times but with no power to enforce its ruling and no penalties, Wicked Campers ignores every notice.
- Queensland, Tasmania, NT and ACT have passed laws to deregister vans that breach the code and do not remove the offensive slogans.
- Please follow the lead of MPs in these states and back the bill to stop Wicked Campers' sexist actions, for the benefit of South Australians like me.
As well as continuing with the calls and emails to Minister Stephan Knoll please contact the following key people:
Premier Stephen Marshall
08 8363 9111
Deputy Premier and Attorney General Vickie Chapman
08 8332 4799
Carolyn Power – Assistant Minister for Domestic and Family Violence Prevention
Dan Van Holst Pellekaan – Energy Minister and Co-Convenor of Parliamentarians United Against Domestic Violence
Frank Pangallo – SA Best Member of the Legislative Council
It is so important we get as many people as possible to call or write before the bill is debated tomorrow. And we hope to see you on the steps of Parliament House at 9.30am tomorrow morning!
Lets get it done!
