Men didn’t vote enough for a political party that would have spoken up against this bill in it’s first reading. But what does that mean?
1. Political parties pro men have 3 years to get more men’s support for the next election.
2. The world has not ended yet. There is still work that can be done without political parties being pro men already. Other groups are playing the game too. Some had a better chance with labour but have not given up their goals because they didn’t get the political party they wanted in.
They lobby each politician in parliament today and put a tick against their name if they are in. They then go to work on the others who they do not have support from.
These are the details to the bill.
This bill strenghens police powers, sentencing provision and bail conditions relating to domestic violence.

We too have to get to work. I am hoping there is no argument against working for the next 3 years or how ever long you can give.
Do you want to help?
If you do then let’s brainstorm. What are our arguments and what can we do?
Figure out what to say. Can you give suggestions?
Write to politicians for support.
Write to lawyers for support.
Write to human rights.
Who else can we write to?
E-mails are not hard.
Oh, and we need to write submissions. We can help one another do this.
