URGENT: LNP Supreme Court action against GetUp
1:02 PM (2 minutes ago)
We need your urgent help.
Voting has just opened in Queensland, and Campbell Newman’s LNP’s lawyers have applied for a Supreme Court injunction to stop us handing out our how-to-vote cards.
Right now, hundreds of GetUp volunteers are handing out cards telling people to put the LNP last, but if we lose this Supreme Court action we’ll have to stop.
We need to fight it, and we have to do it fast. We can only do it if we know we have enough money to fight the injunction in an urgent court action, and fight any appeal that may arise.

If the case doesn’t go ahead or we raise more than we need, we’ll offer you a full refund. If you don’t want a refund we’ll put that money straight into the Reef Legal Fighting Fund.
It’s still morning in Brisbane, and the majority of voters haven’t yet hit the polls. This is likely to be one of the closest finishes in Queensland history, and having our how-to-vote for the Reef cards could make all the difference.
This is exactly what it sounds like — a cynical ploy to silence us on election day. It’s a dirty, desperate attempt to cling on to power in an election set to go down to the wire.
