'GetUp!' Does It Again

Several times this year, we've pointed out to 'GetUp!' that it is unacceptable for them to place their advertisements (using the donations of supporters) in News Ltd. publications.

Well they're doing it again - seems like they're doing it every couple of weeks these days:

As MPs make their way back to Parliament next week, confront them with a huge newspaper ad countering the polluter lobby's fear-mongering and showing that cutting emissions creates jobs.

Parliament decides our fate on climate change this fortnight so make sure they see your call for investment in renewable energy to create clean-energy jobs.

Can you contribute $30, $50, $100 or more to put this ad in The Australian for every MP to see next week?

The journals of choice of the "polluter lobby" are Murdoch's. By paying to advertise your view in News Ltd. publications, you are giving credibility to their totally discredited writing and editorial views and therefore complicit in pushing the deny and delay line.

Think very carefully about why you would give cash to Murdoch to run this ad. As we've said before, there are plenty of other, better, more honest ways that money could be spent to send this message.
