Hands Off Our Democracy is run by a small team of young people concerned that Australia’s future is being undermined by foreign donations.
We’re under no illusions that we’re up against some big entrenched interests.
From the major political parties such as the Liberals, Labor, and the Nationals who have for years profited from foreign donations, to the smaller micro-parties and groups such as the Greens, Labor-aligned Unions and GetUp! whose agendas are increasingly funded by overseas interests – we are fighting against the established political class.
It is also a matter of public record that foreign governments monitor and attempt to suppress dissent in Australia’s democracy. As a result, we have chosen to remain anonymous to protect our identities.
All of our research is publically available and will be available for verification by any journalists and news organisations.
Our motives are transparent and clear: we want a ban on foreign donations to all political parties, associated entities, and third party advocacy groups to ensure Australian – not foreign interests – are at the heart of our political process.
But we can’t do it without your support.
