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 one week in late October, French workers held 3 national strikes involving 3 - 3.5 million workers in each.

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.
