AUSTRALIAN REPUBLIC REFERENDUM
Referendum Voting Day: ???
Still being debated by republican proponents... AGAIN!!!
RETURN TO: REPUBLIC MAIN INDEX
Our FlagOur Flag wears the stars that blaze at night,
In our Southern skies of blue,
And a little old flag in the corner,
Thats part of our heritage too.
Its for the English, the Scots and the
And you, who are shouting to change it,
Though there are plenty of people who'll tell
It doesnt mean we owe allegiance,
Its only an old piece of bunting,
"The more that people learn about a republic... the less they like it."
"Those who imagine that a politician would make a better 'Head of State' than a hereditary Monarch, should make the acquaintance of more politicians."
"If you don't understand it... don't vote for it."
"One mob who wanted to change 'Our Flag' was the Imperial Japanese army. They FAILED."
"No one should consider changing something they don't fully understand."
"Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely."
"Only a person
who believes that politicians can always be trusted
take our Constitution away
The two components on the republic movement's agenda that will be scrapped are:
Australian men and women fought and died in World Wars and numerous other conflicts, to protect and preserve the Australian Constitution and what it represents, for future generations of Australians.
On April 25th each year, Cities and Towns in every corner of Australia, STOP, to honour the Australian heroes who did not return and to pay homage to those who survived the ultimate horrors of human conflict.
Do you want ANZAC DAY, April 25th 2008 to be the last time OUR DIGGERS march under the Australia Flag that their mates died for?
