“Reform Party Funding so that parliament act for the 99% not the 1%” #occupydemocracy
There are six signs representing six core demands:
1./ Reform of party funding so that members of parliament act in the interests of those who elect them rather than the 1% who bankroll them
2./ Major democratic reform of the media to break the stranglehold of vested interests
3./ A fundamental overhaul of lobbying and the way powerful economic interests inhabit the corridors of power within government
4./ The introduction of proportional representation so that everyone’s vote counts
5./ That MPs should not have conflicts of interests from either paid employment or corporate shareholdings
6/ A citizen-led constitutional convention for real democracy.
