Canberra Unites to Bust the Budget


Nearly 2000 Canberrans joined a National Day of Action to fight Tony Abbott's budget.

Today we took part in another massive show of opposition to the unwarranted, unwise and unfair cuts introduced in the 2014 Federal Budget. Across the nation Gonski supporters were prominent amongst the many community groups who are fighting back.

We're determined to maintain the energy and momentum that has been created since the budget was handed down in May. To stay in touch with other members of our community who want to stop the Abbott Government's attacks on our social fabric, sign up at Fair Go For Canberra.
