Privatisation sells Queenslanders short, it sells our kids future short and sells short the services we all rely on. Our movement has stood up for public health services and assets.

Now, it's time to stand up for transport we all rely on. That's why we're supporting the Hands Off Our Buses campaign. Our movement has stood with commuters and fought cuts to bus services last year, but now these services face an even bigger threat -- the Newman government's plan for privatisation of bus services in the South-East.

I am a sub-specialty trained anesthetist, and worked for Queensland Health for many years. I resigned on April 30 last year, as a direct result of the government’s introduction of unfair contracts for senior doctors.

This is my story.

Working as a doctor, or anywhere in the health system or hospitals is incredibly rewarding but very hard. Let alone trying to do so with fewer resources, less staff and worse conditions.

Campbell Newman is pulling one last sneaky trick: calling an election while Queenslanders are still in holiday mode. The election will be held on Saturday 31 January.

But we are ready, and we need you to get on board with the campaign plan. Click here to say you are ready – give your name and contact phone number and someone will call you to let you know the next step.

Campbell Newman has called a snap election because he is desperate. He's panicking because he knows the polls are getting worse and worse for him and his spin has stopped working.

You've already stood strong and called on Campbell Newman to reject any plans for privatisation. Now it's time to stand up again against the spin that this government is spending your money on to tell Queenslanders what a great job they think they are doing.

Nobody thought they could do it. For the first time in 60 years a first-term government has been defeated in Victoria – and it was sent packing because workers and community members led a strong grassroots campaign of doorknocking, speaking to voters, and taking a stand for public sector jobs and public sector services. People power won! This is an election victory not for party politics as usual but for the members of the community who worked to make their voices heard.

Meanwhile, in Queensland, we see another Reachtel poll that show that Campbell Newman's LNP have fallen behind and would lose an election if it were held today. The next election is going to be close!

You don’t need to read the polls though: you can just see how much public money the government is desperately spending on ad campaigns to try to spin themselves out of their record on cutting jobs and public services. Again, nobody thought at the beginning that this would be so close, but your actions have made a crucial difference.

On Sunday, Health Minister, Lawrence Springborg, announced more money set aside for the public health will end up in the pockets of private companies. 

For every public health problem, the LNP's only answer is to give more money to private companies. 

Instead of expensive slick advertising campaigns, the government should start listening to healthcare professionals, its workers and the community about delivering more accessible public healthcare.
