These Cuts are Killing Us: End Healthcare Austerity

Saturday, February 20, 2016 - 13:30

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.

Only action will stop these cuts. This event is intended to be a space for planning and organising that action. There will be open organising meetings so that anyone interested can be involved.

Actions are also happening in other cities:
