THE GREEN SHIRTS MOVEMENT

In 2019, such was the popularity of Australian wines they accounted for nearly 35 percent of all China’s wine imports. The increase is demand in the Chinese upper and middle classes saw an increase from $542 million to $2.3 Billion in total wine import value.
It is clear that both government and industry together need to actively seek diversification and flexibility in the supply chain and expand into less mature markets that present growth opportunities whilst trade disputes continue to impact exports across the globe.
The Green Shirts Movement are standing up for Australia’s wine industry.

DONATION DISCLAIMER

Green Shirts Movement Australia (GSM) is a not-for-profit organisation campaigning to ensure that the grassroots Australia is represented and governed by good people and good policy.

GSM is not a deductible gift recipient (DGR) organisation or fund that registers to receive tax deductible gifts, nor is it a registered political party under State or Federal legislation. Therefore, contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes.

To help us continue to be the voice for rural, regional and reasonable people we raise money through donations help pay for things like advertising, billboards, print advertisements and representing your voice to governments at all levels.

We are NOT apolitical – we are very political – however we are NOT party aligned. We expect and will support GOOD PEOPLE and GOOD POLICY, no matter from whence we find it. We will not blindly attach ourselves to any political party. We expect parties to put themselves SECOND to the welfare of the people they purport to represent. We are driven by you. As political parties are abandoning the grassroots, we will fill that void. We will give our all to ensure policy is driven from the grassroots up, and not inflicted on us from those that feel they are our betters.

Your donation makes our movement stronger and strengthen your voice.

DONATIONS POLICY

By donating to Green Shirts, donors confirm that:

The individual or entity making the donation is not a Foreign Donor, as defined by the Commonwealth Electoral Act (1918).
The funds they are donating are not being provided to them by another person or entity for the purposes of making their contribution.

Persons or entities are required to register as a political campaigner when:

As such, if Green Shirts Movement Australia’s expenditure reaches such levels, we are obliged under the Commonwealth Electoral Act to disclose to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) cumulative donations of $14,500 or more in a financial year. The AEC will publish these reports on its website.

QLD ELECTION GIFT PROVISIONS

When donating specifically towards our Queensland State Election campaigns when held, Qld Electoral laws prevent us from receiving and prohibit donations from Property Developers and their associates. Therefore, when donating, donors confirm that the following statements are true and accurate:
The funds they are donating are not being provided to them by another person or entity for the purposes of making their contribution.

The payment is not made by or on behalf of a ‘prohibited donor’ (being a ‘property developer’), or a ‘close associate’ of a ‘prohibited donor’ as defined by the Electoral Commission Queensland.
By law, donors who contribute an amount of $1,000 or more in aggregate are required to be disclosed to the Electoral Commission Queensland.

This disclosure is made by Green Shirts Movement Australia Pty Ltd and must include the name and address of the donor. Donors which are companies or trusts must provide details of financial officer or trustee(s) as applicable.
