Leveraging numbers by targeting effort
- The closure of all detention centres, both offshore and onshore, starting with the release of all children.
- A precisely targeted campaign can bring about a small but significant change.
- Canvassing the views of politicians and political candidates and supporting those who match our views most closely.
- Working together, influencing friends and using our networks, we hope to make the “We” big enough to swing marginal seats and influence the outcome in the Senate.
- Keep it clear.
- Keep it simple.
- To ask every lower and upper house candidate in the upcoming election a set of closed and open questions relating to the detention of asylum seekers.
- To use their answers to produce a series of How to Vote cards or similar information to guide voters when they come to cast their voter.
- To use the same questions to influence preselection of candidates in the major parties.
- To build a comprehensive national network of supporters, striving to have at least one person responsible for each marginal constituency, and a team in each State targeting the Senate.
- To send the questions to candidates by email as a minimum, but to try to place the questions before candidates in person.
- To maintain a website showing progress of the campaign, but also the answers received or not received to our questions by each candidate.
- To evaluate our effectiveness after the election, learn from that, and plan for the next election.
