Vigil tonight, QLD VAD debate begins tomorrow

13 September, 2021

Tomorrow (14 September), Queensland's Parliament will debate the Voluntary Assisted Dying Bill 2021. Wherever you live in Australia, we need your support.

The weekend saw hundreds of opponents take to the streets holding signs saying 'Compassion Never Kills' and chanting 'Kill the Bill'.

We must make sure our message is heard loud and clear by Queensland MPs with a final surge of support. There are two ways you can get involved:

Tonight! Vigil for VAD outside Parliament

Please join the Vigil for VAD in Brisbane tonight 5.30pm-6.30pm. This is a COVID-safe event so please wear a mask, socially distance and sign in on arrival. Electronic candles and placards will be provided.

If you don't live in Brisbane, watch the event broadcast live via this link: https://www.facebook.com/events/395677658841105/

 

If you use Facebook and Twitter, please like and share Go Gentle's updates to spread the message across Australia that it's Queensland's time for Voluntary Assisted Dying.

Tomorrow! Parliamentary debate starts

Second reading speeches will start around 11.15am tomorrow (Tuesday 14 Sept) and we expect debate to finish this week.

You can watch the debate live here: https://www.parliament.qld.gov.au/work-of-the-assembly/live-and-archived-broadcasts

 

We are at a pivotal point in a years-long battle for compassionate end of life choice in Queensland. If you are able, please do attend the vigil in person.

Often, people with terminal illness cannot take to the streets to make their voices heard. We must represent those Queenslanders who are unable to join tonight's event.

If you're a Queenslander, there's still time to contact your MP and tell them you support this law. Find your MP here: gogentleaustralia.org.au
