I move:

That the Senate—

(a)   acknowledges:

(i)   the contributions of charities and not-for-profit organisations in Australia and their advocacy on issues that matter to Australians, including human rights, social services, foreign aid and development, environmental protection and medical research, and

(ii)   the important role these organisations and their advocacy play in Australia’s democracy;

(b)   notes the Government’s attempts to limit their ability to engage in advocacy on the matters and causes they champion; and

(c)   expresses its support for these charities and not-for-profit organisations and their advocacy.
