• Stand up for the environment. Stand up for jobs.
    Under a policy that had been in place for five years, all Federal government departments and agencies were required to start using 100% recycled paper this year. This policy was cancelled in the weeks before Tony Abbott was replaced as Prime Minister. Over the last few years, Australian Paper have invested in new recycling technology that allows 100% recycled paper to be made locally in Australia. This policy decision will cost thousands of jobs, will be bad for the industry, and will be harmful to the environment. We call on Malcolm Turnbull to reverse this decision and ensure all Government paper is 100% recycled.

  • LANTITE Campaign
    Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Education Students [LANTITE] and the administration of LANTITE. We can understand your frustration given Education and the COVID-19 pandemic; We believe you can understand and appreciate our frustration in regard to the LANTITE and our inability to graduate. As a result, we implore you for your support in removing the Literacy and Numeracy Test for Initial Education Students (LANTITE) administered by ACER as a graduate requirement. These students have successfully completed the units in their degrees, as well as professional practise in the form of placements. Throughout degrees and placements, the importance of literacy and numeracy is highlighted. We implore you to support the removal of LANTITE as a graduation requirement. In doing so, you will be contributing and assisting Australia’s economic return through this pandemic.

  • Protect out Water
    Allow our farmers to grow and make food competitively whilst securing food security in Australia. And mining and cotton industries from stealing our Commonwealth water for private companies that gifted water rights. This directly affects our climate and has massive impact on climate change as we are drying and exploiting our water whilst rivers, small communities and our environment suffers. It's now time to stop water theft and return water rights to Australian citizens rather than transnational corporations.

  • Footpaths for Kids - Warnervale P.S.
    Children living in estates at the south eastern end of Warnervale road, bounded by Sparks Road, Old Pacific Highway, and the Wyong Hospital, do not have access to safe footpaths to walk to school. Nor is there a safe place for children to cross Warnervale Road to the fully completed footpath on the northern side of Warnervale road. With all of the development occurring in the area, there are fully laden trucks, including B Doubles, using Warnervale road in addition to the local traffic. It is just not safe for our children to get to school on their own. We want Central Coast Council to make the safety of our children a priority and complete the footpath.

  • UTS Climate Strike
    Transforming our destructive relationship with the environment requires the creation of hundreds of thousands of jobs right across society. This includes, but also goes far beyond, rebuilding the electricity system for 100% renewable energy by 2030 under public ownership. We stand with Indigenous people in struggles to protect their lands and waters from impending expansion of fossil fuel projects. We stand with workers in fossil fuel industries and their communities facing insecure work and an uncertain future - there must be clear job guarantee from the government for all of these workers as the economy de-carbonises. We stand against the vested corporate and political interests placing profits above the future of the planet. They have made enormous riches from destroying the earth - they must pay for the climate action we urgently need. Here at UTS we have a particular responsibility and opportunity to play a leading role in the research, development and retraining that will be needed for the climate transition.

  • Unite Against Trump- Protest Donald Trump in Australia
    Disgracefully, Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull has invited US President Donald Trump to visit Australia. This is likely to occur after the APEC summit in PNG in November. Donald Trump is a racist, misogynist, lying billionaire who is trying to drag global politics to the far right. His brand of extreme nationalism, Islamophobia, greed, anti-refugee, anti-immigrant, anti-women, anti-LGBTI, anti-union and anti-environment rhetoric and policies are abhorrent to the majority of the Australian public. The Turnbull government has aligned with Trump's bigoted and militaristic global agenda at every opportunity. We want to see Australia distanced from Trump's values. His values do not represent the interests of most people on the planet or the planet itself. More than ever we need to join together in Australia and across borders to struggle for a world that respects the equal rights and wonderful diversity of humanity, protects our fragile environment and equitably shares the enormous wealth all around us. We call on Malcolm Turnbull to rescind Trump's invitation to Australia and for the parliament to prohibit him from speaking if his visit goes ahead. We pledge that if Trump does visit we will meet him with mass demonstrations to show our opposition to everything his Presidency stands for.
