UPDATE - Latest Videos
The latest video releases from AVM Peter Criss (Retd) number 5 and 6 focused on a Letter signed by four Labour MPs in 2009 and A Fair Go for Military Widows. His video highlights the discrimination and unfairness faced by spouses of those who have served and continue to serve.
The lack of fairness in the treatment of military superannuation Widows Pensions is a major concern of the Fair Go Campaign. In his latest video, AVM Peter Criss (Retd) tackles the issue head on and delivers a compelling message about the need for change.
Today, we are also releasing a special video to reinforce that message. It is compelling viewing, watch it HERE
The videos continue to attract new viewers and they have now been watched by well over 1000 people.
There are three more videos to come in this series on topics that include: the blame game, restoration or upgrade in service conditions and comparison with private enterprise. Each video delivers a powerful message, so look out for a release every Friday evening in the coming weeks.
The plight of military families left behind when a current or former serving member dies is a major issue for the Fair Go campaign. We recognise that many spouses and families have been through tough times and some continue to face major challenges today. That is why we are developing a series of videos to expose the Faces of Unfair Indexation.
The Governments uncaring policy on military superannuation indexation is about much more than percentages and dollars. These videos will allow our Defence family to tell their individual stories, and in doing so, add a human dimension to our campaign.
We have other personal stories waiting to be told in the weeks and months ahead. If you or someone you know would also like to share their story, please contact us at the email addresses below.
Please, dont just pass this video link on to your friends and contacts: ask them to support the campaign, by passing the link on to their social networks, including their family and friends and all of their contacts, both military and civilian, and adding the link to their facebook page where they have one.
In this way we can achieve the wider public awareness and support necessary to influence MPs and Senators for a change to Government policy.
