Bill to abolish the Office of Australian Information Commissioner, it's yea or nay on Tuesday

The Freedom of Information Amendment (New Arrangements) Bill is now listed for debate in the Senate on Tuesday 2 December. 

Labor and The Greens strongly oppose the bill. 

So do most on the outside who are aware of its content which is retrograde not beneficial for the open transparent and accountable government cause. 

The crossbenchers who will determine its fate have been receptive to the points many of you have made along these lines through phone calls, tweets and emails to their offices over the last few days. Thanks to all those who sprang into action. Not too late for others-contact details here.

Let's hope the nays have it on Tuesday.
