We will allow another week or so for remaining petitions to be posted back, before arranging for them to be presented in the Federal Parliament via Andrew Wilkie.
We had 2600 signatures at last count.
This campaign has grown massively since this website was started on June 23rd. The primary purpose of this site was to provide a way to distribute paper-based petitions Australia-wide.
I am just one person, whereas the campaign is now in full swing among conservation and fishing groups. There seems little point in me duplicating their efforts (for eg http://stopthetrawler.net/)
Therefore I will only perform minimal updates to this website from today onwards. However the automatic Twitter and newsreel feeds will continue.
There are some videos below that provide food for thought.
Thank you all sincerely for your support and good luck with the campaign.
Regards to All .. Tony
