Get Up’s Counterpunch
The lying campaign by registered clubs against Federal Government proposals to protect problem gamblers has been counterpunched, blocked and refuted by a full page ad from Get Up. It’s one of the smartest rebuttals I’ve seen in Australian political debate.
The clubs’ full page ads appeared yesterday:
Get Up, like its American cousin, is an independent, grass-roots community advocacy organisation that, in its own words, “aims to build an accountable and progressive Parliament…with economic fairness, social justice and environment at its core.” Some of its high profile campaigns include action for maternity leave, greater transparency in political donations, and a campaign against climate change deniers.
It is a not-for-profit organisation, and is funded solely by donations from the public.
