Join the RAPS supporters – the list is growing …

At an APS public meeting last week in Perth, Lyn Littlefield, referred to Reform APS as a group of people, who “lie in the shadows” … are “not really visible” … “won’t list their names so I don’t know who they are”.

This is another example of the Executive Director’s misinformation habit, to say nothing of the apparent disdain with which the national executive views members of their society who express divergent views.

Unfortunately those who became ‘visible’ were met with threats and ultimatums from the APS. That explains why RAPS has had a bit of an underground quality. Many RAPS supporters have been reluctant to go through this experience.

It’s sad that we have to be fearful of retribution from those who are supposed to represent our best interests and protect us. But it doesn’t have to stay this way.

Our guiding perspective is that one day we will be able to rise above what divides us now and sit together to discuss a possibility of resolving our different views in an atmosphere of respect for each other.

Now, however, some APS members are willing to stand up and be counted. Here are some of the people who publicly support us.
