Gamers 4 Croydon, the new political party set to run against Michael Atkinson at next year’s South Australian state election, are seeking more members. If you’re in Adelaide today and over the weekend, you can sign on.
Party founder David Doe is travelling to Adelaide today to obtain the 150 signatures he needs to officially register Gamers 4 Croydon for the election. He got halfway to that total last time and now wants to get the rest this weekend.
Gamers 4 Croydon will be standing a candidate against Atkinson in the safe Labor electorate of Croydon, a seat he has held for twenty years. Central to their policy platform is an overhaul of the existing classification system for games that would enable the Classification Board to award an R18+ rating in line with film and other media.
If you wish to declare your support, you can do so at the following locations:
* Friday, 5:30 – 7:00pm at Rundle Mall’s “Balls”
* Friday, 7:30 – 11:00pm at the StreetGeek LAN event at Colonel Light Gardens Uniting Church
* Saturday, 11:30am – 12:30pm at Intencity inside the Marion Shopping Centre
* Saturday, 2:00 – 5:00pm at the Valhalla LAN at the St Clair Recreation Centre
