The Flux Party and the Gnews

Hey Free/Libre and Open Source Supporters,

This month we will be joined by a representitive of the Flux party to discuss the state of issue-based direct democracy in Australia.

The Flux Party is a tool Australians can use to directly participate in parliament. Flux is a party during the election but once there are elected Flux Party MP’s and senators that’s where the difference begins. Your Flux representatives give up their autonomy and vote according to the people. They cast their votes in line with the outcomes produced by the Flux ecosystem comprised of ordinary Aussies like you.

You can checkout the flux website or join the party (it's free as in $0) here: https://voteflux.org

After the discussion we will have our regular Gnews segment and then head down to Errol street for dinner and Free/Libre and Open Source Small-talk.

Hope to see you at 6:30pm on Thursday the 19th of April at Electron Workshop for our regular Free Software Melbourne meet-up.
