The next decade will be among the most challenging Australia has ever faced.
The coronavirus pandemic has exposed the true cost of relying too heavily on an authoritarian regime like China for our economic security and prosperity.
Although few will admit it, the Chinese Communist Party seeks to reshape the global order and Australia’s position in it through foreign interference, ownership of strategic assets and influence operations.
Australian institutions, universities, and assets are now contested; our sovereignty and independence will be diminished if we don’t continue to push back.
This is a generational challenge. To safeguard Australia’s future, it’s essential that we are united as a nation with the resolve to take action.
We must ensure Australia is in a strong position to guarantee its security, prosperity and our ability to manufacture essential goods.
That’s why I need you to add your voice today in support of Australia’s sovereignty in the struggle against authoritarian regimes.
Thank you for your concern and support on this critical issue.
