    No TAFE takeover

    1,622 signatures

    We are calling on Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Minister for Skills and Training Yvette D'Ath to oppose the Turnbull government’s plans to takeover TAFE and open the doors to private providers rushing in to profit off students seeking vocational education.

    See the leaked plan here. 

    Last year when Queenslanders voted for change, they voted against cuts, privatisation of their public services and assets – including TAFE. The Palaszczuk government has taken important steps to reverse the attacks on the sector under the Newman government and should be commended for their efforts to put students and workers ahead of the wholesale privatisation of the sector envisaged by the LNP and their big business backers.

    Add your name today and join with the Queenslanders calling for a better public TAFE not the dismantling of the sector through cuts, privatisation and fee hikes.

    Australia Says Welcome

    In September 2015 Brisbane came together and rallied to show that Australia says welcome. This is just the beginning. 

    We can and should do more to help people escaping war and persecution in this humanitarian crisis. 

    Add your name to the growing number of Queenslanders getting active to show that Australia says 'Welcome'.
