The recently held founding meeting of a new refugee action group in South Australia was a great success, with a strong turnout and lots of enthusiasm about campaigning for refugee rights in our state.

Come along to the next meeting to keep up the momentum, clarify some of the finer details and start planning some actions.

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

Sat Nov 6, 2pm, Activist Centre, Level 2, 95 Currie St, Adelaide

In one week in late October, French workers held 3 national strikes involving 3 - 3.5 million workers in each. Students are occupying high schools and universties, oil depots blockaded, and some industries are on indefinite strike, as the French people resist being made to pay for capitalism's crisis. Come and discuss this exciting development and lessons for the anti-capitalism movements in Adelaide and around the globe

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'd like to shed some light on the history of women's struggles, discuss the issues that women still face today and build your motivation for the kick-arse activism that will take place on International Women's Day (IWD), the following Tuesday!

From academic education to lived experience, the speakers at this one-day conference aim to educate others on women's struggles and share ideas on how to fight for our rights.

The day will include (subject to change):
- the history of IWD (speech)
- women and poverty (panel)
- gender analysis (workshop)
- perceptions of gender (panel)
