STICS has renewed calls for the national income management system to be dismantled, following the release of a damning report by the NT Coordinator General for Remote Indigenous Services (NTCGRIS).
The report, which documents extreme waste on spending on bureaucracy, comes as the $120 million national expansion of income management is badly stalling, with few referrals and work bans on the scheme in NSW.
Over the recent Labour Day weekend in Canberra, students from around the country came together at the EduFactory conference
to discuss the current situation of Australian universities, to swap strategies and understanding and to foster links between campaigns and collectives.
The conference was the result of dedicated work by grassroots organisers and included current and former, undergraduate and post-graduate students from a wide range of political persuasions.
