Cathy Come Home, by Ken Loach, director of I, Daniel Blake, follows a young couple in the UK in 1960s.

Cathy and Reg deal with sudden unemployment, lack of affordable housing, extremely inadequate welfare payments, and rigid, underfunded support services.

It is the story of how poor people experience judgement and punishment for being poor, instead of dignity and justice.

Sound familiar?

The Turnbull Liberal Government wants us to pay at least $30 for pap smears, urine and blood tests. These tests save lives and nobody should go without healthcare because they can't afford it.

The Federal Government's efforts to save $650 million will put lives at risk. Cuts to bulk-billing for pathology services will affect MRIs, x-rays, blood and urine tests, ultrasounds and pap-smears.

The cuts are particularly harmful for women, people with a disability, working class and poor people and anybody with chronic health issues.

We want you to join us in building a democratic, inclusive and broad group to organise ongoing grassroots political action around refugee rights.
