ANTI-POVERTY NETWORK- RALLY Against Poverty_Saturday, 13th October @11:00am


Saturday, October 13 from 11.00am until 1.00pm at Forrest Place Perth

There are 3 million people in Australia living in poverty, including over 730,000 children. In a wealthy nation like ours, that is simply not good enough. The single rate of Newstart is only $273 a week and hasn’t been increased in real terms for 24 years. At the same time, there is only 1 job available for every 8 people looking for paid work or more hours.

Join us as we rally on Saturday, October 13 to call for:

– Raising the rate of Newstart now
– Public housing for all who need it
– Abolishing the cashless welfare card and income support recipient drug-testing trials
