A group of La Trobe University students in Bendigo will hold a protest next week to express their concern for impending staff cuts. Protest organiser Natasha Joyce said she hoped about 100 students from different departments would attend the demonstration. 11am. La Trobe University, Bendigo campus.

Tecoma Primary School, Burwood Highway, Tecoma.

Come to a public meeting to help build the campaign to stop McDondalds opening a 24-hour store in Tecoma in the Dangenongs. This corporate development will wreck the local character and amenity of the area and we don't need to let profit-driven multi-nationals dominate our local area. The local community recently stopped the development of a large supermarket in the town but the struggle continues.

The apocalyptic fires across Australia show how the federal government has failed miserably to prepare for the crisis or
mobilise the resources needed now. Their criminal negligence continues their refusal to respond to the ongoing climate emergency.
