Our common manifesto
Note: The constituent political parties to Freedom Team have taken on board this manifesto in their own way. This version contains the broad directions in which member political parties will seek to deliver outcomes to their constituents.
Last updated: 2 March 2021
This manifesto is subject to change as more political parties and leaders join Team Australia. Member political parties and any independents will always remain free to advocate anything outside this manifesto.
1. Follow the laws
All key laws in Australia have been criminally broken by both the Federal and State governments of Australia since mid-March 2020. We will ensure that all international laws, national laws, the Constitution, and state laws are followed both in the letter and in spirit. Our laws already assure us of the following:
- Open international borders (Article 12 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights)
- No inter-state border closures (section 92 and 117 of the Constitution)
- No attempt to eradicate the virus (section 5 of the Biosecurity Act)
- No attempt to mandate the covid vaccine (clause 58 of the Siracusa Principles, section 51(xxiiiA) of the Constitution. We have basic freedom of choice assured to us for all medical measures.)
- No lockdowns and curfews (Public Health Acts insist on proportional response: the measures imposed in 2020 and 2021 have been grossly disproportionate, based on bogus “models”.)
- No mandatory masks – These are not evidence-based, so Sweden has refused to recommend.
- No surveillance state (Privacy, etc. Acts) – e.g. no QR codes, no vaccine passports.
- We will establish a Royal Commission comprising a team of medical, legal and economic experts to examine all emergency and other and measures undertaken during the pandemic and the crimes against humanity committed (under Article 7 of the Rome Statute) by the governments in Australia. The Commission will be tasked with recommending penalties for the officials and public office holders who have breached Australia’s laws and caused enormous mental, physical, social and economic harms (including deaths).
We commit to:
- Constitutional amendments: (a) declaration of natural rights in the manner of the American Declaration of Independence and (b) absolute rights in the manner of the US constitution (e.g. speech including free movement and the right to occupation, e.g. no distinction between essential/non-essential business); and protections for the right to assemble, to worship, to health privacy; and comprehensive protections against a surveillance state.
- No emergency powers during peace time under any circumstance.
- Expunging the precautionary principle from all legislation – without exception.
- A Black Hat Commissioner to report to Parliament (nationally and in all States) to critically report on views from opposing experts on every policy decision of the government.
- No government interference in the rights of medical professionals and their patients to jointly make informed decisions about their health including any drugs they may choose to take. No ban on drugs that are approved anywhere else in the world.
We commit to:
- A review of (a) China’s role in orchestrating the mass hysteria in 2020 and in getting people like Dan Andrews (e.g. through Belt and Road initiative) to lock down Victoria, and (b) China’s broader influence in Australia to ensure that trade or research links do not compromise national security.
- Compensation of $400 billion sought from China for its crimes.
- Increase in defence spending and stronger defence linkages with the USA, India and Japan.
