From our landslide victory in the 1999 referendum, ACM remains, as Tony Abbott declared, ‘the constitution’s fiercest defenders’. In that role, we are calling for a return to what Australians knew, even in wartime, constitutional government, whether in emergencies or in normal times. As we argued in the referendum, ‘Freedom wears a Crown’. Do read the opinion on this on our website by the eminent former judge, the Hon Kenneth Handley QC.
This will be the keynote theme of the 22nd National Conference which we have now been able to arrange at the Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts. The Conference will be addressed by leading speakers, including Alan Jones and Tony Abbott.
The conference will also consider:
- ACM’s proposal for an Australian Medal to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee to be awarded only for selfless service
- ACM’s recent appearance (including two Young ACM Ambassadors) before the crucial Parliamentary Inquiry into referendum process
- How all governments insist our Governor-General is the Australian head of state
- Despite ARM promises, the curious case of the republican model, missing for over two decades
- The fundamental importance of the presumption of innocence
- With a recent ACM Facebook post scoring a record reach of over 200,000, a report on our campaigning
- Australia Tomorrow & more
The event will be held on 6 December 2021 at the Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts 280 Pitt St, (between Bathurst & Park Sts) Sydney NSW). A light lunch will be served. Cost for the event and light lunch is $39 ($19 full time students).
