MGFD1Mardi Gras turned on another fabulous Fair Day with the Sydney summer weather adding to the hot and sticky atmosphere. The Sex Party was out in force promoting and supporting LGBTIQ rights plus our unique brand of progressive politics. Candidate for the seat of Sydney Andrew Patterson was pressing the flesh for his NSW campaign along with Huw Campbell for his shot at the upper house.

Fair Day is so important on the Sex Party calendar as it enables us to beat the drum on equal rights, other LGBTIQ issues and connect with people who we believe make up a core constituency for the Party. With NSW more than likely to have a change of government and heading into a long era of conservative politics after polling day on 26th March it is vital to keep a keen focus on our and your issues. The increased influence of religion in politics is just one scary possible outcome of the NSW election and should be of concern to all civil libertarians.

It wasn’t all campaigning with our free sex toy raffles, temporary tattoos, penis wands, stickers and more adding to all the fun of the fair. Congratulations to Leanne Waldron for winning the raffle for the gals’ box of toys and to Jeff Hamilton for taking home the boys’ box. There are hours of pleasure awaiting the lucky winners and their friends. Ouch! A special thankyou to leading adult industry wholesaler Calvista Australia for donating the raffle goodies.

Of course we just can’t be at Fair Day without the fantastic support of our members and our volunteers who put in long, hot hours giving out flyers and tattooing bodies with our Vote 1 Sex message. A super-sized thankyou goes out to all of you. We hope to see you again real soon, helping out on the NSW election campaign.

The Australian Sex Party will vigorously appeal a de registration notice from the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) handed down today.

Registered Officer and co founder of the party, Robbie Swan, said the party was shocked and amazed that from an established membership list of 6,000 people, with an elected member in the Victorian Parliament and with a legitimate claim to be the major minor party, the AEC could find that the party did not have 500 bona fide registered members. Read More

Crime Commission Report: ‘Blueprint for Regulating Illicit Drugs’, MP.

Hemposium

Yesterday’s release of the Australian Crime Commission report on organised crime, is all the proof that Tony Abbott needs to end prohibition as a regulatory model for controlling illicit drug use in Australia.

Victorian Upper House member, Fiona Patten, said that recent record drug seizures by the AFP were nothing for the community to feel good about and that new record seizures every year simply confirmed that illicit drug use was escalating out of control.  “They simply show, for all to see, that prohibition is now a complete and utter failure as a means to regulate illicit drugs and all it does, is make crime gangs rich”, she said.
