Usually a bloke carrying a billboard is
selling something – not Tony Robertson. He has put his faith on a billboard in a bid to get politicians – and voters – to think about social equity issues in the run-up to the federal election.
Brisbane-based Catholic social activist, is backing the Fair Share Fair Go campaign – literally. His billboard campaign is an initiative of the Social Action office in Woolloongabba and is aimed at getting voters to
vote for equity in income, health and housing.
“I believe domestic issues need to be addressed by candidates before November 10. The principles of Catholic social teaching promote a preferential option for
the poor and my faith demands that I stand firmly against principles and policies that widen the divide between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’,” said the human billboard.
Amen to that.
