Free Keswick Island

To the Honourable President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

The petition of the undersigned shows:

Many Australians are rightfully concerned about the Government’s tick and flick attitude towards approving the sale of our nation’s land, water, resources and infrastructure to foreign companies and foreign powers.

The unfolding disaster we see as a result of the sale of Keswick Island in Queensland to Chinese Developers is a perfect example of how the current weak rules and regulations governing foreign ownership are easily exploited.

Developer China Bloom now controls a 99-year lease for Keswick Island. As a result, access to the island’s national parks and public beaches have been blocked and residents have been forced out of their homes.

What we are seeing on Keswick Island is an affront to our nation’s sovereignty and presents a clear risk to our national security.

Your petitioners ask that the Senate:

Immediately take the necessary actions required to restore Australians their rightful access to the public areas of Keswick Island; and

Swiftly implement legislation to ensure that incidents like the one occurring on Keswick Island will never happen again.

If you have only just learned about the Keswick Island tragedy then watch this video, sign and share the petition and help spread the word.
