    Default Single Parents Newstart rally/protest

    Thought the info might be of interest to some hubbers:


    There are marches in every capital city on the 5th February - this is something for all parents to come along and support!

    Australian Single parents are uniting and marching on - or meeting at - Parliament Houses around Australia to protest low-income single parents being moved from the Parent Payment Single welfare payment to the greatly reduced Newstart Allowance.This current policy reduces many Australian single parent family incomes significantly, forcing single parents and their children into poverty, regardless of if they are working already or not.
    Australian single parent protest rallies are taking place around Australia on the national day of action - February 5 2013

    I'll try and be there even though it isn't going to affect me. Cutting income support to the families who need it most just makes my blood boil!
