Photo Essay: Victoria Trades Hall Bust the Budget rally

Standard

A selection of photos from the June 12 Trade Union Bust the Budget rally and march: An estimated 20,000 nurses, firefighters, teachers, health workers, construction workers, electricians and many other workers turned out today to “Bust the Budget” as part of the Victoria Trades Hall initiated rally opposing the Abbott government’s class war budget attacking workers, students, pensioners and the poor.

The next trade union rally against the budget will take place nationally on July 6.

No Cuts, No Fees, No Corporate Universities: Student National Day of Action against the Budget

Standard

Dear friends,

a short video I shot on 21 May of the Melbourne student protest against the attacks on education by Prime Minster, Tony Abbott and Education Minister, Christopher Pyne.  The protest which attracted between 4000-5000 students and supporters was part of a national day of action organised by the National Union of Students.

For more information the attacks on students and education, please see my earlier posts:

In solidarity,

Kim
