The Freedom of Information (FOI) system is one of the most important ways for us to continue to expose government misconduct, but we continue to see a degradation of the system that leaves all Australians exposed to the abuse of power by governments.
The Australian government is increasingly applying aggressive strategies to dodge its obligations. We urgently need to fix the FOI system before it's too late.
Together we can stop the attacks on transparency, accountability and democracy.
Together we can hold the Government accountable to the Law.
With your support:
$50 could help fund research to help document how the FOI system is being gamed;
$100 could help fund a report to demand FOI be be applied for transparency and accountability;
$250 could help fund the establishment of Grata's Legal Clinic at Monash Law School to support academics, journalists, NGOs and campaigners challenge FOI refusals or redactions.
All donations of $2 and over are tax deductible in Australia. If we raise more than the cost of this campaign, your donation will be used to help cover the cost of ongoing, important Grata work.
