I'm having trouble typing my thoughts in detail, so I'll just give you all a TLDR: The Australian government is actively trying to destroy any form of equality Australia had, and it's making me sad and angry. I'm angry because I didn't vote for these people, but I'm stuck with their idiotic policies anyway, and I'm sad because I feel completely powerless to change anything. This government isn't listening to it's people, it's listening to those who will make them rich.
Anyway, I've taken to twitter in hopes as a form of protest/making Jen feel slightly less angry/sad. I'm using #thisisnotdemocracy. The aim is for me to tweet something intelligent at those in power every day in order to let them know that I am not ok with what they are doing. I would absolutely love it if others would join me.
Here's a list of Twitter accounts to get you started:
Tony Abbot: The Prime Minister/Minister for all sorts of things he shouldn't be sticking his nose in.
Julie Bishop: Deputy leader of the liberal party/ Minister for foreign affairs.
Christopher Pyne: Minister for Education
Peter Dutton: Minister for immigration and border protection
Greg Hunt: Minister for the environment
Scott Morrison: Minister for Social Services
Joe Hocky: Treasurer
On a lighter note, I spent my day writing music with Vanishing Shapes and painting. I'm really enjoying having time to be creative without having to worry about assignments. Anyway, I don't have anything else to say, so I'll just leave everyone with the rest of my photo's from today!
