• Hands off the Arts ScoMo
    You should join this campaign if you love Australian music. It has been totally defunded. If you love Australia content on TV and Film then the $70 million cut must be reversed. If you live in the country you want the $10 million back. If you enjoy this festival, the Fringe Festival Rising, music festivals, the opera, theatre, museums, art galleries; any of these events you should demand Morrison puts the hundreds of millions back in the budget. Less submarines; more gigs.

  • Save the Occult Club
    Since late 2020, the Occult Club has fought hard for its space on our campus, as a community for witches, pagans, satanists, and other members of minority religions. The club has been registered with the union since early 2021 and has contributed significantly to campus culture by hosting large, open and non-sectarian events, such as a Halloween party in partnership with the Pride Club, Sci-Fi Club and Totally Cooked and a spooky board games night in partnership with GAMES Club. On the 10th of March 2022, members of Oscar Ong’s political faction, Progress, on the Clubs Committee decided to table the Occult Club’s application for full registration after we spent last year provisionally registered with the union. The reason given for this decision was to await letters of complaint about the nature of the club, which haven’t even been written yet. This decision does not follow proper procedure, and no other club has been exposed to this level of review. This demonstrates that the Clubs Committee is willing to apply the rules and regulations of the AUU inconsistently to suit their own desires. This also leaves our club in a very precarious position, as we are unsure whether we are wasting our time while preparing for our events throughout the year, including our second set of Halloween events this October. We are, unfortunately, not the first club to be mistreated by Oscar Ong’s Progress, and this fits neatly into a much broader pattern of discrimination and censorship of views that disagree with the personal views of Progress. Some of the highlights in Progress’ portfolio of censorship and discrimination are: - Refusing to affiliate the Women’s Collective to the AUU - Prohibiting the SRC from criticising decisions of the AUU, and subsequently cutting all funding to the SRC - Gladly affiliating a pro-life club, LifeChoice, while refusing to affiliate a pro-choice club - Making a pattern out of dismissing elected members of the SRC and AUU from rival political groups - Prohibiting On Dit from publishing any criticism of the AUU It is disturbing to see how comfortable Progress is with eroding student democracy and silencing student voices on campus. We, the undersigned, demand that the Adelaide University Union approve the full registration of the Adelaide University Occult Club.

  • Put transport into the fast lane.
    Australian transport networks are slow, congested, expensive to use and falling apart. The skyrocketing cost of petrol is a burden on all Australians. Investing in faster, safer and better transport networks, is good for jobs, good for productivity, and good for people. Governments have been all talk and no action when it comes to fixing our transport problems – for both people and freight. It’s time to get our transport networks into the fast lane.

  • Restart 24 hour service at UNSW libraries
    Students regularly take advantage of the libraries 24 hour access, in particular during assessment periods, such as the upcoming mid-terms. Library services should return to normal services. This makes sense considering the return to face-to-face teaching. Similarly, resting spots in the library should also be resumed considering their complimentary function in library spaces.

  • Save Boroondara Council run Aged Care!
    Council-run In-home aged care enables those in need to live independently at home for as long possible. Being able to retain a sense of independence is so important for mental and emotional health. Our ageing relatives, friends and neighbours deserve to retain the quality care they get from highly trained council workers. In-home aged care delivered by local government is a hugely valued service. These workers are highly trained, on permanent jobs and liveable wages, who provide care second to none. Their employment conditions mean clients get the kind of continuity of care they asked for during the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality & Safety. It’s painful to watch councils make these decisions at such a crucial time for the health and protection of the elderly during COVID19. It is clear these decisions are not being motivated by responsive consultation with the community about their needs and desires.

  • We Need More Safety!
    After an episode of abuse, it is challenging for the survivor to build their life back. Suppose they had access to paid family and domestic violence leave, they would have time to put their lives back together without suffering pay loss. This step also makes the situation better for their kids. Sexual harassment is a real issue. Sadly, only 17% of women feel they can report this harassment. It is often easier for them to change jobs than to make a report. The Respect@Work report recommended greater responsibility for employers to act on this matter. In fact, employers must be proactive which should reduce the occurrence of such incidents. The government did not implement this recommendation, so we are demanding it. The government can take steps today to make life better for women in Australia. Sign this petition to tell the government that women in Australia need more!

  • More AFLW Media Coverage needed now
    Since its first season in 2017. AFLW has grown to 14 clubs and will continue to expand with all 18 Clubs to have an AFLW team by 2023. Over 1 MILL fans have attended live AFLW games and crowds and TV viewing numbers continue to grow. The female participants rates across the country have risen to over 17%. There is very little coverage from media outlets. We want this to change. Representation is important.

  • Candidates must commit to queer rights
    Candidates for the election should commit to ending legalised queerphobia against students and young people. This can be done through three policy changes. 1. The religious discrimination bill was introduced into government in 2022 and passed the House, despite universal opposition from LGBT+ people. It is currently indefinitely suspended in the Senate. This bill should never be considered before parliament again, since it allows religious people and groups to openly discriminate against queer people under the guise of religious beliefs. While queer school students have been often discussed in relation to this bill, many university students are also in a religious environment. These students don't deserve to be discriminated against when they are simply trying to learn. Any attempts at a re-introduction of this bill must be opposed. 2. Conversion therapy must be banned on a federal level. It is ineffective and leaves lasting harm on survivors. There is little research on this practice in Australia, but evidence from UCLA in the US suggests that around 50% of survivors are under the age of 18. Victoria, the ACT and Queensland have already banned this incredibly harmful practice, but this is not enough. Without a federal ban, LGBT+ youth will continue to be put in danger by this practice. It is unconscionable to say that banning human rights abuses is a matter for the states. The federal government must also take action. 3. A legislative duty of care will ensure that queer university students are subject to the same protections as high school students. This is a key ask of the NUS's It's Time For Change campaign and is highly relevant to queer students. Having a duty of care would mean that universities would be required to provide gender neutral bathrooms, to act against queerphobic rhetoric on campus and to take action against sexual assault, which disproportionately affects queer students. It would mean that university administrations are required to make life better for queer students.
