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.
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.
