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

You can watch video number 5 HERE and video number 6 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.

We invite you to increase your participation in the Campaign by joining the Action Group in your Local Federal Electorate. Just complete the Volunteer Box at www.adso.org.au and we will contact you. Our Action Groups will play the major role in promoting the Campaign to the community.

As always, we welcome your feedback on these videos and your recommendations for future ones.

Help keep this viral activity circulating to the wider community. So 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 in Government policy.

Ccontinuing with the Widows theme, next Wednesday there will be a special release of a new video series on The Faces of Unfair Indexation. In this video, a military widow tells her story. It is a video not to be missed.

Thanks for your continued support.

Hello 

Hes Back!

This week, AVM Peter Criss returns with the next video #7 in his series on Fair Go Issues - Is it Restoration or an Upgrade?

Through statements made in Parliament and in its ill-informed Fact Sheet, the Government has attempted to misinform the public by suggesting that we cant have the fair indexation we seek because it would be a retrospective upgrade to our conditions of service. Nothing has angered our supporters more than this deliberately misleading tactic to deny fair indexation to military superannuants.

In this video, AVM Peter Criss (Retd) exposes the truth about this issue in his usual forthright style.

You can watch the video here: Fair Go!

And while on the site, you will also be able to view other videos in the series you might have missed previously.

Please help to keep this viral activity going. 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 in Government policy.

Thanks for your continued support.

History of the Fair Go Campaign http://adso.org.au/fgcampaign/history CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS 2011

 

 

 

 

 

HISTORY 2010

 28 July 2010. The public launch of the FAIR GO! Election Campaign was held on the lawns in front of Parliament House Canberra.

 

 

24 May 2010 

Robert Oakeshotts MP (Indp - Lyne) private members motion debated:
That the House:
(1) should consider increasing the Military Superannuation Pension twice annually by the greatest of either the Consumer Price Index, the Pensioner and Beneficiary Living Cost Index or the Male Total Average Weekly Earnings; and
(2) should do this in recognition of the unique circumstances of military service compared to all others within the public service.
The Motion was seconded by Bob Katter MP
On behalf of the 64,000 Australians unfairly affected by having their military superannuation pensions continue losing purchasing power and therefore a continual erosion in their standard of living (unlike many other Australians), the DFWA thanks Mr Oakeshott for his support. We look forward to all sides of the political spectrum supporting Mr Oakeshott and more importantly, take the necessary steps to right this wrong. The Hansard Report of the Motion, debated in the House is here.

 

HISTORY 2009

25 Nov 2009. DFWA and others meet with Minister Tanner. DFWA file note here.

9 Nov 2009 Public Meeting. The ACT DFWA with ACT SCOA held a public meeting at the Ainslie Football Club Canberra. At least 500 people attended and the mood of the meeting was strong, with many calling for a tougher campaign. The media including ABC TV was present. Labor Senator Kate Lundy and Liberal Senator  Gary Humphries addressed the meeting. Local Labor MPs Mike Kelly, Annette Ellis and Bob McMullan. were represented by their chiefs of staff.

Cost of Living Pressures. The Senate Community Affairs Committee, in the report of its inquiry into Cost of living pressures on older Australians, recommended immediate action by the Government to "index Commonwealth funded superannuation benefits and the military pension to Male Total Average Weekly Earnings or the Consumer Price Index, whichever is the higher, as is currently the practice with the age pension."

NOTE: Peter had hoped it be shown during his question but the ABC refused  let alone the graph that would have given impact to his question that was supposed to be asked. Even the original question that had been drafted by those representing superannuates was hacked by the ABC & given to Peter to read only moments before the show began.

An Inconvenient Truth

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIQoP94ud4A

Who is to blame for the fiasco of unfair indexation of military super pensions? Does it really matter whos to blame?

In this weeks video (No 8 in the Series), AVM Peter Criss addresses the blame game which is a favourite cop-out of politicians. He also returns to the key issue of fairness which sits at the heart of our campaign. The logic of his arguments and the conviction of his presentation makes it a video well worth watching.
