Stand up for your rights!
It is a travesty that we have allowed insipid and ineffective labelling laws to result in dozens of people being infected with hepatitis from berries from China labelled as a "product of NZ"; it is obscene that a private toll company can charge up to $219.00 for not paying a $2.00 toll charge; it was wrong to allow coal seam gas mining in our prime agricultural land on the Darling Downs; and it was a mistake to allow Woolworths to build a supermarket on the Obi Obi creek in Maleny against most of the local community's wishes.
These and many other important CONSUMER RIGHTS issues are increasingly becoming widespread concerns for many people as corporate power grows. Increasingly individuals and even governments are at a loss as to how to temper the greed and indifference of multinational companies who owe allegiance to no nation and have no moral compass except that of self interest.
CONSUMER RIGHTS is a political organisation which will bring pressure on both corporations and governments to consider the community first and foremost - BEFORE profit.
Please join us in our efforts to make Australia a country which genuinely leads the world in consumer rights and protections.
