This is how we stop the hard right

No matter who's Prime Minister, this government is now dead-set on a platform of racism, climate-wrecking, and sky-rocketing inequality. Image of Scott Morrison and Peter Dutton with the message: How we stop the hard right
Although Scott Morrison is Prime Minister, Peter Dutton has been at the centre of events all week. He and the hard right faction just brought down a PM who didn't do enough to appease them – and they are now more dominant than ever.

To take on this Morrison-Dutton hard right government, we now need to roll out the same successful tactics GetUp members deployed in the 2016 election – but at much bigger scale.

We'll have hundreds of thousands of persuasive conversation with voters, use our expertise in social media to do targeted advertising at an unprecedented scale, and kick off with the largest ad campaign in GetUp history.

But to pull it off, we need a solid base of ongoing funding. Can you join the GetUp crew by making a regular weekly donation?
By reminding voters their track record – and what they really stand for. We'll remind voters that Scott Morrison imprisoned more children in detention than any other Immigration Minister. We'll remind them that he tried to increase the GST, which would've pushed people already struggling to make ends meet further into poverty. We'll remind them that he paraded a lump of coal in Parliament, as thought our climate emergency was some kind of smug joke. And we'll remind them that he's still campaigning to legalise discrimination against the LGBTIQA+ community. We'll do it with the same successful tactics GetUp members rolled out in the 2016 election – but at much bigger scale. We'll have hundreds of thousands of persuasive conversation with voters, we'll use our expertise in social media to do targeted advertising at an unprecedented scale, and we'll kick off with the largest ad campaign in GetUp history. But for maximum impact we need to start now, before the party machines even know what's happened.
