GetUp! wastes your money

The mining industry must be shaking in their boots at GetUp!'s latest campaign:

They can stretch the truth, but they can't scare us!

The mining industry is scared that a tax on their super profits might trim a little fat off their bottom lines.

So now they're trying to scare Australians into opposing it.

You can beat them at their own game, by putting this huge parody ad right alongside theirs in the papers, starting with The Australian this Thursday.

Can you contribute $30, $50, $100 or more to make it happen?
One wonders how much money GetUp! have given to the Murdoch Press over the past few years.

They are laughing as they take your money and continue to use their editorial power to push the mining lobby's line.

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