Unemployed and welfare groups are calling on the government not to cut income support at the end of March. Peter Boyle reports.
The tide appears to be turning against the federal government’s punitive robodebt scheme, reports Kerry Smith.
Jesse Lee* is organising the Sydney leg of the March in March protest on March 25. She lives in Sydney’s west and is the primary carer for one of her children. She has first-hand experience of the welfare cuts and the vagaries of the disability support scheme.
Lee put her hand up to organise the Sydney march because she strongly believes that protests are important and they work. She also believes that now is not the time to be quiet.
