The leading broadcaster Alan Jones is to launch The Crowned Republic on Wednesday, 3rd June 5:30 - 7:30 pm. This is the latest version of ACM's long standing education project.

Days before the celebration of the Queen's Birthday, the launch will take place at Parliament House, Sydney.

(Please note that this has been moved from the Jubilee Room to the Parliamentary Theatrette to accommodate those wishing to attend.)

All Australians are entitled to know more about how we are governed. While they appreciate that they live under  one of the world’s most successful constitutions, it is clear that there are some gaps in their  understanding of our system.

Now a team of young Australians led by Jai Martinkovits and  Ed Copeman have been working with Professor David Flint on a project to answer this need. 

The first stages of this exciting project involve a comprehensive new website and an outreach programme in the schools. 

The new website will complement ACM's existing site which is undoubtedly the world's most active constitutional monarchist site. 

"Polls show the majority of Australians, and particularly the young, do not want a politicians' republic. If they did we would be having a referendum next weekend. Australians are entitled to information, not just republican propaganda, “said Professor David Flint, National Convenor of Australians for Constitutional Monarchy.
