Put People before Pokies

 

Sign a letter to the Premier now! 

Dear NSW Premier,

Poker machines in NSW are devastating local communities and families. I urge you not to sign another agreement with industry that locks in profits and locks in harm. We need strong action to reduce the harm caused by pokies in NSW. 

We call on the Premier to PUT PEOPLE BEFORE POKIES and:

1. Rapidly reduce the number of poker machines in clubs and pubs in NSW

2. Introduce $1 maximum bets

3. Give local government the right to cap and reduce pokies in their community.

    Do the right thing to limit and minimise harm, without really effecting the fun of players enjoying themselves….

    Addiction is not the fault of the person with the addiction. Addiction is caused purposefully by the large corporations that KNOW how rich they can get by creating addiction. Make this purposeful and willful community destruction illegal. Companies and their shareholders do NOT need to get rich to the detriment of a decent society. Those shareholders may eventually find themselves in a society full of chaos.
