"One immediate issue Democracy Watch is mobilising against is the
federal government's attempts to raise the disclosure threshold from
$1500 to $10,000. This effectively means an individual, corporation or
union could donate $9,999 to every state, territory and federal branch
of a major party without the source of any of these donations having to
be disclosed. That would total $89,991. This proposal is appalling and
it must be stopped." Democracy Watch President, Brad Pederson
