Corner Boundary and Russell Sts, West End, Brisbane The LNP has announced plans to introduce a $6 fee for every visit to the doctor with the possibility that this could be expanded to emergency room visitations. This is an attack on our healthcare system and it will hit the poorer sections of our society the hardest. It is also just the tip of the iceberg: if this gets through it is likely that further attacks on Medicare will come down the line. It's time to stand united and defend our health system. Healthcare should be fully funded, free and available to all.

Injustice Queensland Style: Learning the lessons from Palm Island! It’s almost six years since the death in custody on Palm Island of Mulrunji whose “crime” was to comment on an arrest, sing a song and continue on his way when told to do so. What happened is now well known - a coronial inquiry found that police officer, Chris Hurley, struck Mulrinji with such force, the blow was fatal.
