Rally Against Poverty
October 20, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Our social security system is failing to support people living in poverty. At the same time, the Federal Government seeks to make it harder to access and increasingly nastier, tightly controlling the lives of those struggling to survive on its meagre entitlements.
We say this isn’t good enough!
It’s time to raise the rate of Newstart. It’s time we had a social security system that actually supported people out of poverty, rather than punished them.
Join us on Sunday, October 20 in Perth to demand change.
We are pleased to announce that we will be joined by Nijole Naujokas – writer and activist with the Australian Unemployed Workers’ Union!
More speakers to be announced.
