WA NUS National Day of Protest (Perth) - Abbott and Pyne Hands Off our Education!
The Liberal government is on the warpath and they're coming after students! Abbott and Pyne have tabled a bill in Parliament to cut $900 million from higher education and another bill to cut Centrelink start up scholarships, a vital lifeline for tens of thousands of students who already live below the poverty line.
Students around the country need to stand up to this wave of attacks on our right to a decent education that is accessible to all. We are demanding that the government stops the cuts, increases funding to universities and raises student welfare allowances.
