Another GetUp! Scandal Empty
PostSubject: Another GetUp! Scandal   Another GetUp! Scandal EmptyFri 21 Dec 2018, 10:41 am

How does this activity passes muster under the current Electoral Act.
How the entities donating to Get-Up can avoid being declared "3rd Party Campaigners" beggars belief. Can someone offer an explanation ?
This whole process is subverting democracy.

Blatant foreign interference in Australian elections.
Oh, of course, no problem, it's not a confected allegation against Trump and the mad left are doing it.

Australia with insignificant emissions in world context is being targeted with economy destructive policies- one should ask why!?

How can it be people can be manipulated by others based on half truths and absolute rubbish.
Here is a perfect example of no evidence but “Whatever it takes” to get access
to tax payer funds.
If you follow the money the real story emerges.




GetUp’s $500,000 donation to change poll climate
BRAD NORINGTON 12:00AM DECEMBER 21, 2018

Another GetUp! Scandal 93c22c5cd84d2d46d57f3ca12808c547
GetUp national director Paul Oosting has confirmed that funds from the $495,000 Sunrise Project donation would be used in the lead-up to the federal election.

The left-leaning GetUp activist group has ­received a $500,000 donation from an Australian-based charity with foreign funding links that will be used to help make climate change a hot button issue in next year’s federal election.

Less than a fortnight before new federal laws take ­effect on January 1 to ban political donations from foreign interests, GetUp has confirmed receiving $495,000 from the Sunrise ­Project.

Sunrise, which campaigns for 100 per cent renewable energy, refused to disclose the source of the donation yesterday, but ­insisted all funds it redirected from other donors were “from Aus­tralian sources”.

The group is known to receive international funding, following documents aired by WikiLeaks, from the US-based Sandler and Tides foundations that were ­directed at the anti-Adani coalmine campaign.

GetUp national director Paul Oosting confirmed yesterday that funds from the $495,000 Sunrise Project donation would be used in the lead-up to the federal election expected in May.

GetUp plans to campaign against the Morrison government, and hand out how-to-vote cards for Labor or the Greens.

Mr Oosting said “all funds” ­received from the Sunrise Project came from Australian sources, but declined to say where it had accessed the $495,000 donation.

Sunrise’s executive director, former Greenpeace activist John Hepburn, also insisted all funds were from “Australian sources” but declined to name them.

Mr Hepburn said several ­donors to the Sunrise Project — which redirects money from ­others to activist groups of its choice — had been “vociferously” ­attacked by the coal lobby in the past. “Many donors are understandably reluctant to be subject to that, and we support this right to privacy,” he said.

The Minerals Council of Australia claims in a submission to parliament’s joint standing committee on electoral matters that the Sunrise Project typically avoids disclosing the source of its grants or donations. Confirmation of the $495,000 donation came as GetUp notified the Australian Securities & Investments Commission that it had appointed an extra board member, taking its number of “full members” from eight to nine. New board member Karen Iles, a human rights lawyer, is a former Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union official, ALP member and campaigner for the party’s Labor for Refugees.

Of GetUp’s nine board members, five have a strong Labor pedigree, fuelling claims of critics that it is an ALP “front”.

West Australian Liberal MP Ben Morton yesterday challenged the timing of the ­donation from the Sunrise Project so close to the starting date for new laws banning foreign ­donations when the group was known to receive offshore money. “The Sunrise Project is a self-proclaimed ‘re-granting’ organisation,” he said. “It is a clearing house of political donations from others, and a known receipt of foreign political donations.”

Mr Hepburn confirmed funds from his group were likely to be used by GetUp for the federal election, when GetUp plans a vigorous campaign to unseat conservative Coalition MPs such as Tony Abbott and Peter Dutton.

The Sunrise chief dismissed claims his group was a “clearing house” for activist groups, while saying it did “re-grant” a portion of its funding to other community organisations in line with its own charitable purpose.

Thanks saved me posting it.
The AEC should have been onto this mob years ago.
This mob actively campaigns at elections for the progressive left, usually labor.
They campaign all year 'round on LW Anti-Coalition and Anti-Liberal crap.

How can they not be considered politically partisan and part of the Labor collective.

THE AEC ARE IN DENIAL. Rolling Eyes

Billy BS was one of the founding members.
He used $100,000 via a Union donation to get them started.
I think he left in 2007.

Unions fund this group and other dubious LW sources.

9 members are either Labor or used to be Labor and run the organisation because they are the board.
There is no real membership and the board decides what it does... 9 people with almost limitless funds.

GetUp! donations corruption exposed!!!!!

GetUp! is a front for the Labor & Greenies parties.

Everyone knows it but the AEC won’t do anything about it.

Now they have received a $500,000 donation from the US activist group fronted by Clinton/Podesta via an Australia front group called the Sunrise Project.

Time to get tough.

Someone needs to investigate the Sunrise Project. Activist group GetUp has received a $495,000 donation from the Sunrise Project, an Australia-based charity that campaigns for 100 per cent renewable energy. GetUp's national director Paul Oosting says the donation will be used.

To finance its activities prior to the 2019 federal election, when it is expected to hand out how-to-vote cards for the Greens and Labor. Western Australian Liberal MP Ben Morton claims that the Sunrise Project is a "clearing house of political donations from others.

Sunrise Project executive director John Hepburn denies that it is a clearing house for activist groups. Of course Hepburn would deny the claim he’s not going to admit guilt is he.  AND
why are ‘charities’ who are tax exempt allowed to donate to political campaigns?

Of GetUp’s nine board members, five have a strong Labor pedigree, fuelling claims of critics that it is an ALP “front”. The Sunrise Project is a self-proclaimed ‘re-granting’ organisation. “It is a clearing house of political donations from others including foreign donations".

GetUp plans to campaign against the Morrison government, and hand out how-to-vote cards for Labor or the Greens. Paul Oosting said “all funds” ­received from the Sunrise Project came from Australian sources, but declined to say where it had accessed the $495,000 donation.

Less than a fortnight before new federal laws take ­effect on January 1 to ban political donations from foreign interests, GetUp has confirmed receiving $495,000 from the Sunrise ­Project which campaigns for 100% renewable energy.

The Sunrise Project which is a regranting charity. They redistribute donations made to them. All very secretive stuff.

GetUp! is one of the most serious problems of our time IMO.

The Sunrise Project overseas connections:
1/ John Podesta ( US)
2/ Hillary Clinton (US)
3/ Open Societies ( George Soros - US)
4/ Avaaz ( George Soros - US)

GetUp is deemed to be a POLITICAL CAMPAIGNER and as at 1st Jan next year will not be permitted to receive any overseas funds to use in campaigning in elections.

Is this just a coincidence....or is this GetUp getting as much overseas funds prior to the law coming in??

Paul Oosting says the money is Australian money...but it is being laundered thru The Sunrise Project? So far he is refused to comment.!!! Please draw your own conclusions!

Now see just who and what is this Sunrise project mystery:-  https://sunriseproject.org.au/people/


It all seems to be part of the Extremist Greenies' plot to reduce Australia to a primitive agrarian multicultural cesspool.


Be afraid - this is the sort of thing the Extremist Greenies have as their VISION for Australia that they will be steering Labor thru the Senate to create

GetUp continue to jump on any cause they think can bring in the donations, which they then spend on wages of about 10 people. What they actually do is anyone's guess, do they really need millions to tell a bunch of volunteers to stand outside a pollies office?

Another GetUp! Scandal Dtcohom-Uc-AE2ke9

Getup mentally infiltrating the weakest. Coal our biggest export is bad. Let’s rely on donations as a country. Great leadership.

GetUp -> Avaaz -> MoveOn -> OSF -> Soros follow the money!! GetUp donations consist of about 50% foreign donations, they claim to be "an independant grass roots movement". Couldn't be further from the truth. They put globalists/socialists into power through political disruption.

It is only going to work if Australian Labor will allow all evidence to Bill Shorten and the GetUp! donation. If he will continue to hide then a corruption committee is pointless. He refused to hand over evidence to the RC then lied to them. We know the police investigation.

Donations to Getup avoids having to declare donations to the political party. Instead, Getup do the work of the political party using those donations and thousands of volunteers.

As a professional senior Getup volunteer I certainly know this. Luckily most Aussie are dumb.

Well Getup fronts as a non tax paying charity but they are the political lobbying and campaign arm of both Labor and Greens !! Financed by political donations from unions, political party and some of the most underhanded left wing one world government scum of the earth !
