Stop Hate Speech Against Unemployed
On almost every episode of the Channel 7 Sunrise Program, there is a story attacking 'dole bludgers'. This must stop. The Sunrise program must stop using hate speech against the unemployed.
We demand a right to reply on the program.
Why is this important?
It is the worse time in Australia's post-war history to be unemployed, yet the government and the media continue to blame the unemployed.
It is clear that the problem is the system (of which mainstream media is a part) which is upheld by the politicians. The focus needs to be on them, not the unemployed. Politicians and media need to be held to account.
Where are the jobs?
What are the government doing about the Newstart rate which is $380 per fortnight below the poverty line?
What are the politicians doing about the disaster of work for the dole, cashless welfare, job search agencies, drug testing and so on. They profit, while the unemployed suffer.
Sign this petition and demand the unemployed are given a voice!
