ACT Sex Party Gathering 2

Another month passed and the ACT branch of the Australian Sex Party gathered once more. It was unfortunate timing for the humbled members of the ASP who showed up, as the fateful day was that of the Melbourne Cup. Despite the odds (pun intended) stacked against us we gathered once more at King O'Malleys Irish pub to exchange glib remarks, news items, paraphernalia and each other's company. A pleasant time was had by all and much planning was done for the coming months. If you weren't there, you certainly missed out.

So, what's coming up in December? Well for all those politically-minded, socially-concious individuals, we here at in the Sex Party want to invite you to the first ACT Sex Party End of Year Party! Held on our regular monthly Gathering night (the first Tuesday of the month) we'll be throwing a party to celebrate... Well, whatever the hell you'd like to celebrate! Christmas? Hanukkah? The Summer Solstice? Don't care? Just want to come along? Well come and celebrate the passing of time and another year with the best political party in the ACT and Australia.

However, just to throw a proverbial spanner into the works, after much deliberation, it has been decided to have the End of Year Party at a venue different to the one that many of you know. The place we have gathered at in the past was King O'Malleys pub in the city, but it's been decided that a change might be for the best, because although we had the best of intentions at King O's, I know from personal experience that it is a place which caters mainly to people who are of a more... Conservative viewpoint. All is not lost! Many of you are familiar with the pub near the bus interchange on East Row called The Phoenix! You'll be familiar with it's welcoming atmosphere and comfortable lounging areas. More importantly than all this, however, is that it feels much less like you're walking into a warzone when you're going to a Sex Party gathering or End of Year Party at The Phoenix wearing your political views on your chest (Vote 1 SEX!)

What's the plan then? The Sex Party is a party built on the idea of personal freedoms and we're serious about those freedoms! As such we're not going to tell you what you should do at our End of Year Party, just make sure that you have a good time doing it! There'll be political enthusiasts, people who just like our policies, good beer on tap and (inevitably) people who're just there at the pub to drink, so there'll be plenty to keep an active mind entertained. Perhaps even a not-so-active mind, we are having this party at a pub after all!

Just to be clear for all those who're thinking of bringing along friends, everyone's welcome, you don't have to be a member of the Sex Party to come along and have a good time – hell, you don't even need to be a resident of the ACT!

For those who'd like the details, here they are:

Place: The Phoenix Pub
Time: 6pm
Date: Tuesday the 7th December
Dress Code: Whatever you'd like
Who's Welcome: Anyone!

Here's hoping that I see you all there on the night!

Prelude to Executions Represents Torture Under United Nations Convention

Excecutions-mono

 

Australian Sex Party MLC, Fiona Patten, has called on the United Nations to immediately ask Indonesia to show cause as to why it should not be struck off the list of signatories to the 1984 United Nations Convention against Torture.

“The news that Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran have been transferred to the execution island of Nusakambangan today, is a very sad day for all Australians and Indonesians,” she said. “The death penalty is barbaric and inhumane. Essentially what is being done to these two men ahead of their abhorrent execution is a form of torture in itself - something most thinking nations reject.”

Psychedelic enthusiasts across Victoria will be taking acid (LSD) on Sunday April 19th to celebrate Bicycle Day's 72nd anniversary, marking the birth of western psychedelic culture.

Fiona Patten MLC called on the Minister to relax the prohibitionary regulations around LSD for medical research in Victoria, “Sadly, there are a couple of organisations in Victoria which would like to explore further medical research in this area but it is incredibly difficult because of the prohibitive laws. I ask if the minister would consider reviewing the legal status of some psychedelic substances in relation to medical use.”
