  • Stop exploiting students
    Since 2018, international students from the Philippines and other countries have faced horrific treatment from Lawson College in Dandenong. Students are promised that their course will lead to permanent residency. But they arrive in Australia only to be met with appalling quality of teaching, abuse, mistreatment and bullying. Students have reported inadequate facilities, taking classes where up to 50 students are crammed in a room for 20, unstable internet connection forcing hundreds of students to use up their own mobile data and poor quality teaching with multiple assessors within a single subject providing extremely inconsistent and delayed assessment feedback – sometimes as late as 3 months. When tuition fees cost $10,000 a year, it is understandable that students want to transfer to better quality education providers. However, Lawson does not let this happen. Instead, institutional harassment and gaslighting ensues. Lawson has threatened students with visa cancellation and deportation, falsified attendance issues and failed students who made requests for release and transfer. They’ve rejected compelling reasons for release such as mental health issues and continued to charge tuition fees and issue debt collection notices even if students have appealed for release on several occasions. Those who are eventually able to transfer to another provider are not issued with their completion certificates even if they have finished a course and paid in full. Students are repeatedly rejected on their applications for release until they give up, due to exhaustion from the entire appeals process, which can take as long as 6 months. Furthermore, there is also workplace exploitation and wage theft, with international students not being paid fair rates when employed by Lawson. These existing injustices have since been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, with international students facing systemic discrimination and neglect with many unable to afford food and experiencing homelessness. Students have submitted a petition to Lawson college demanding: – A 30% discount in all scheduled tuition fee payments for June, September and December 2020 – Waiving the Late Fee Penalty ($200 AUD a Fortnight) for the year 2020. But Lawson College has ignored their request. This cannot go on anymore. We must stand in solidarity with students calling for fair treatment, so that Lawson College can not ignore them any longer. International students are not cash-cows who can be abandoned during the pandemic. We must take a stand against the racist complex of education trafficking, which serves to funnel international students into debt bondage, enabling further exploitation in Australia. Sign this petition in solidarity with the students at Lawson, to ensure their demands are being heard and fought for.

  • Higgins wants a Clean Recovery Now!
    http://cdn.getup.org.au/image_21147_full.png Australia can be a clean energy superpower, creating future-proof jobs in work that improves our lives. We need to make sure we don't miss out on this opportunity to power our recovery with sun, wind, and waves. We can create jobs restoring the green spaces we love, like Gardiner Creek. We can harness the sun to power our businesses and homes with cheap solar energy. We can stay cooler in sweltering Melbourne summers and save on air-conditioning bills by retrofitting homes to be more energy efficient. Will you join the call for clean, affordable energy and climate-friendly jobs?

  • Creation of a Federal Independent Commission Against Corruption
    A Federal ICAC will either dispel or confirm reports of widespread dishonesty in the distribution of Federal Government Funds, for example, and not limited to: $150 million for the “regional” swimming pools, including $10 million for the region of the North Sydney pool $272 million Regional Growth Fund most of which was dished out in a hurry just before the last Federal election. $841.6 million for the Building Better Regions Fund. $200 million in government advertising in the lead up to the election – an unprecedented level of self-promotion with your money $2 billion for the ironically-named Climate Solutions Fund. $4 billion Urban Congestion Fund incorporating the $500 million Commuter Car Park Fund that mainly benefited coalition marginal seats $300 million Drought Communities Program – where the government ignores its own criteria and hands out money without regard for eligibility $220 million Regional Jobs and Investment Package – ministers rejecting 28 per cent of the recommended applications and approving 17 per cent without recommendation $22.65 million for the Stronger Communities Program, and $22.65 million for the Communities Environment Program. (Thanks to Michael Pascoe, The New Daily) The people of Australia deserve to know that the elected representatives in our employ are acting in a legal and moral manner in regard to ALL matters before them. And ensure that OUR money is spent to provide the electorate with the best outcomes. COVID 19 has bought a change of circumstances. Lessened parliamentary sittings have seen the usual checks and balances severely restricted. A Federal ICAC would go some way to remedy this, and demonstrate that our Federal Parliament is, and has been acting in the best interests of the electorate.

  • National self exclusion for pokies
    This is important as the current model of self exclusion does not address the vast number of alternate venues a troubled gambler has access to once they have excluded themselves from a single venue. Also as the current process of self exclusion is very personal and confronting having a means of doing this via an independent source would be of great help. Lastly by this being a national self exclusion system it would be able to take advantage of the current id requirements used to access a venue and allow the venue to automatically cross check each patron against the register to ensure compliance without increased costs to the venue.

  • Adelaide wants a Clean Recovery now!
    Here in Adelaide, we have so many opportunities to create jobs in work caring for our planet, while making our lives more affordable. We can create jobs bringing local ecosystems back to life, such as restoring the sand dunes around Holdfast Bay, or protecting our native Grey Box Woodland from invasive species. We can create jobs planting trees and installing better shading to keep us cool on Adelaide’s streets, where bitumen and concrete absorb and reflect the sun’s heat making them unbearable on a hot summer's day. And with our sunshine, we can lower power prices for our businesses and homes with solar. If we work together to get the recovery right, we have a bright future ahead.
