Stop Dutton from eroding our rights.

Under the cover of a global pandemic – Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton is trying to ram through new powers.

He's pushing for changes to laws that would let his spy agencies track your movements and listen to your conversations without oversight, detain children as young as 14 and prevent you from having a lawyer present.1
It could see businesses, journalists and civil society investigated for 'espionage' just for doing their jobs.

Lawyers, experts and politicians from across the spectrum have slammed the proposed changes, calling them dangerous and invasive.2

We can't let this attack on our civil rights be waved through Parliament, and the only way that happens is if we dial up the pressure fast.

Can you add your name to the petition calling on politicians from across the spectrum to oppose these changes?

Minister Dutton’s proposed amendments to give ASIO far-reaching powers is a dangerous move.

We call on politicians to oppose these amendments.
