USE YOUR VOTE AND VOICE TO PROTECT OUR HERITAGE

USE YOUR VOTE AND VOICE TO PROTECT OUR HERITAGE

Thanks to countless thousands of people like you, momentum and support for keeping Ayers House for the people grows every week, despite the State Government's continual attempts to distort the reality of what is happening to Ayers House.

The Ayers House petitions - online and paper - have attracted over 15,000 signatures, and many of you have gone on to take other actions, like contacting your local MPs and candidates. 

Because of your efforts, we have broad political support: the Labor Party, the Greens, SA Best, and Independent MPs, Sam Duluk, Geoff Brock, and Frances Bedford, have listened.

They have pledged to reverse the State Government's plans to dramatically reduce public access to Ayers House by converting the building to government offices. 

And did you see the article in this week's Advertiser by former ABC broadcaster Carole Whitelock? Apart from the State Government, no one is willing to support the shoddy treatment of Ayers House and the National Trust.

7 DAYS TILL POLLING DAY

It's a week till polling day. We encourage you to use your vote to protect our heritage:

  • Let's remind MPs and candidates why Ayers House and Martindale Hall must be kept in the hands of the community
     
  • Let's keep building pressure for urgent reforms to our planning system to restore the rights of the community, increase openness and transparency, and bolster protections for natural and built heritage, all of which have been curtailed over the past few years

On the Ayers House front, you might like to join other supporters on Zoom, next Wednesday the 16th, 3pm, who will be making phone calls to MPs and candidates, reminding them why keeping Ayers House for the people matters.

You can register here.

And here's a reminder about our parliamentary petition: can you download and print it, and sign it along with 7 of your family or friends?

Yep, only 8 signatures, to fill a page, that's all!!

A total of 10,000 signatures (and we're getting close!!) will means the petition can be tabled in Parliament, initiating a formal inquiry by the Legislative Review Committee, scrutinising the State Government's dishonest and shoddy behaviour, with respect to Ayers House and the National Trust.

Let's keep pushing, until Ayers House is back in the hands of the people, for good!!
