Government penalises groups for having a voice.

Green army warned on politicking - Environment - www.smh.com.au

In another attempt to silence the growing opposition to the government and it's various policies, the environment minister has threatened to cut funding to environmental groups that partake in political advocacy. This, in effect, sees groups penalised for voicing their opinion. Is this really democratic? I think not, if a group cannot voice their opinion, especially if it differs from the abhorent government that we live under than we are turning towards a scary period of history where the right rule and people arn't going to fight back. We need to put a stop now and fight before it's too late.
