Feel like your job agency mistreats you? Tramples over your rights?
Well, here is your chance to learn the knowledge and skills you need to stand up for yourself and other unemployed people who experience this stressful, punishing system, at this special advocacy training day.
We will be covering how to deal with common problems, like job agencies ignoring your health/personal issues, trying to force excessive, unfair obligations onto you, and how to make complaints.
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.

In October of last year the Turnbull Government re-introduced a bill before the Senate titled “Inquiry into Social Services Legislation Amendment (Welfare Reform) Bill.” This widely condemned bill seeks to reform the government's current (and already cruel) welfare system with many punitive provisions and the introduction of a ‘demerit point scheme’.

Never before have the impacts of human activity on the environment been so profound. The transformations of the past two centuries, especially the past several decades, have generated not one but several possible environmental catastrophes.
Human civilisation (and countless species) is threatened not only by climate change, but ocean acidification, ozone depletion, and changes to freshwater and land use.
Walk Together is an annual national celebration of Australia’s diversity, designed as a tangible expression of the welcoming, fair and compassionate society we’re committed to building.
Walk Together 2015 will be a huge celebration of diversity and a loud declaration that thousands of Australians believe we can become a nation known for our compassion, generosity and welcome.
Faced with increasing instances of fear and prejudice, it’s more important than ever for values of compassion and welcome to reign. For the sake of our futures, it’s time to Walk Together.
Last month 30,000 people gathered in Cochabamba, Bolivia to do what world leaders had so spectacularly failed to do a few months before in Copenhagen, develop an agreement to address the looming climate catastrophe and ensure a safe climate for future generations. While the Copenhagen summit was splashed across the international media, Cochabamba has been discussed remarkably little in the mainstream press. Yet this was a significant meeting for the international climate movement and an inspiring example of the people, energy and movements that can ensure a safe climate future.
