It’s time for all the feels.
RIP Gough Whitlam
Racist propaganda courtesy of the Liberal Party of Australia. Spread this like wildfire.
I’ll reblog this in the morning, when Australia is actually awake, but…
I collaborated with some fellow political tragics on this info-thing about the Abbott government’s proposed changes to Medicare and the pharmaceutical benefits scheme, based on this study from the University of Sydney (PDF).
There’s also a single-image version, on my website.
- ‘Co-payment will hit harder than expected, Sydney University study finds’ (Michelle Grattan, The Conversation)
- A sister infographic by Beyond the Hedge (JPG, big-sized); a result of the same collaboration. For those who like their graphicalised infos slicker, sexier, and sanser of googly eyes.
Please reblog and share however you can! Even if you’re not Australian but you like the cute animals and maybe some of your followers are Australian, for example?
There is an upsetting issue that I seek your help with.
Lillian’s, a youth refuge that supports me, may be forced to shut down after its funding was cut. It’s the case with all independent refuges in inner west Sydney. This literally means teenagers as young as 14 would now be forced to choose between enduring daily violence in their homes or sleeping rough on the streets.
We’re fighting to reinstate funding, and I hope you will sign and share the petition in the following link: http://chn.ge/1pKRVy3
Thanks for your support!
Broken promise? I’ve never heard of such a thing.
