The Australian Republic Movement believes everyone who leads Australia and Australians should state allegiance to our people and to our place.
Australia is unique - our land and our society are distinctive in the world. Our nation's great achievement is the creation of a democratic, multicultural, egalitarian society where everyone is equal no matter their family, faith or national background.
We should never take this for granted and we should always try to improve it. This is why we should replace our current foreign monarchy with an Australian as Australia's head of state.
Our head of state should be a patriotic, democratic person who embodies service to our country and its people.
Our head of state should be an Australian chosen by Australians, not a foreign monarch who inherits the job.
It is fundamentally unfair, undemocratic and undignified for Australia's democracy to be subject to a foreign monarchy.
The Australian Republic Movement is building an inclusive, member-controlled, volunteer-led campaign calling for a national vote by 2020 so Australia can decide our future and so Australians can have a head of state of our own.
We have made great progress and we have great hope - but campaigns matter and change is never inevitable - that is why it is so important that you join now.
Our paid up and passionate members elect our leaders and control our campaign. This is our movement - and we want it to be yours.
