Speak up for a Federal ICAC

For years Labor and the Coalition have shut down any effort to set up a federal anti-corruption watchdog. But that's starting to change.
A Senate Inquiry is looking into a federal ICAC right now. If it recommends setting one up, that'd put pressure on the ALP to step up and adopt a federal ICAC as official policy.

In other words – this could be a game changer.

But there are powerful forces lined up against us. And right now the inquiry could go either way.

Submissions close on Friday – so we're running out of time.

Can you make a submission today?

Let's flood the Senate Inquiry with community submissions – and make it clear that our democracy is something we'll all fight for.

Every state in Australia has a corruption watchdog already, and they have proved their worth time and time again. In NSW, the ICAC has been a powerful force going after corrupt politicians and cleaning up politics on both sides of the aisle.
Polling conducted by The Australia Institute earlier this year shows that a full 85% of voters believe there is "some" or "a lot" of corruption at the federal level, and 82.3% of voters want a federal ICAC. Strong support for a federal ICAC exists across party lines, with undecided and "other" voters the most likely to believe corruption occurs and the most likely to support the establishment of a federal ICAC.
