  • Grant Paul access to the lower level at Adelaide Entertainment Centre to "see" his hero Dynamo
    I would like access to the lower level to be made for my severely disabled friend Paul who is in a wheelchair and is visually impaired to be able to see his hero Dynamo at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre. This was a surprise gift to Paul, a meet and greet ticket which comes with premium seating in front of the stage to say thank you for all his help when i moved next door. Instead Paul and other disabled can only go to one Section (street level) where a wheel chair can go but is too far away for Paul to be able to see due to his poor vision. Access could be given through the Artist lift but has not been allowed due to security, integrity of his illusions, even though i suggested Paul could wear a eye mask etc. Paul will have two support carers with him in the event of fire to evacuate which is another excuse for not giving him access to the lift and lower level where he would be able to see the show. This is where his ticket gives him a seat, but because he cannot walk there, he can't use it. If you have any mobility and visual troubles you cannot see a show at this State of the Art venue in South Australia. Why is there not a public lift for easy access to the lower level and best seats made available to all. Anyone that cannot traverse stairs also has no access to this premium area. Paul is being discriminated against as he has both mobility and a visual impairment and can never attend a show at this venue, I am sure this would apply to a lot of others as well for various medical reasons. This should be a basic human right for anyone to be able to attend and "see" a show at this government owned state of the art venue, which has undergone many modifications and refurbishments over its 22 yr life. Please help Paul and others be able to have one of these simplest of pleasures that we take for granted. #helppaulsee&believe

  • No To Wallarah 2 Coal Mine!
    It has been shown that the mine will significantly effect the underground water flow within the Dooralong Valley. It will interfere with endangered species including the Charmhaven Crabapple and squirrel gliders in the area. It will cause significant noise and dust penetration to the nearby residential property of Blue Haven (less than 300 metres from the coal conveyor system and coal loading facility). It places at risk significant commercial enterprises being developed by other land owners in the immediate area and it removes both legal and actual access to a number of privately owned land holdings.

  • Don't Frack Victoria!
    Hydraulic fracturing 'fracking' involves the high-pressure injection of millions of litres of water, sand and chemicals into shale cracks. Not only does the process involve huge (and scare) volumes of water, The risks associated with this process are serious. In Australia and the US, fracking has: - contaminated and depleted aquifers and drinking water, - damaged land and habitats, and - caused methane leaks, causing serious air pollution. A large area of southern Victoria is targeted for shale oil and gas exploration and eventual production. A ban on unconventional gas production is required so that our domestic, livestock and food water resources, and our very valuable food production is protected from the very real risks of water and food contamination, as has happened in other spread of Australua and overseas!!. Legislation must be strengthened to protect the precious water in our environmental, cultural, heritage, recreational and food producing areas. Victoria, particularly the higher rainfall areas of the south is fast becoming the food bowl for the rest of Australia, with high per hectare production of milk and meat. This resource could be jeopardised should fracking be allowed to occur.

  • Stop the closure of Empire Street Early Learning Centre
    The council made the decision to close the Empire Street Early Learning Centre in Footscray in a closed council meeting on 19 July 2016. This unconscionable decision will have a detrimental impact on current and future local families who use this valuable service for child care (with kindergarten teacher) and for check ups with the maternal and child health nurse. Centre staff are devastated at the news of the closure and redeployment for all staff to other centres still remains uncertain.This area of Footscray has a high density population and with developers gaining approval to build more apartment blocks, removal of such important community services is negligent. Please help the local community of Footscray keep Footscray a friendly suburb for families to live. Please read The Star's coverage of this important community issue: http://www.starweekly.com.au/news/shock-at-closure-of-childcare-centre-in-footscray/pub/maribyrnong_hobsons_bay/

  • Save Eaten Fish (Ali) - bring him to Australia for urgent treatment
    Ali (aka Eaten Fish) is a 24 year old Iranian artist who is interred in Australia's detention centre on Manus Island. Ali suffers from severe OCD, Complex PTSD and debilitating panic attacks - sometimes he scrubs himself til he bleeds. Ali was sexually assaulted earlier in 2016 and continues to be sexually harassed and violently sexually propositioned. As a result of ongoing harassment and the sexual assault Ali's condition has severely deteriorated. The treatment that Ali has received has not helped and is not in line with currently accepted treatment in Australia. Ali is at grave risk of further harm and must be brought to a safe place in Australia where he can receive the specialised treatment he requires.

  • Save Our Parkes Hospital
    According to projections by GetUp, Parkes Hospital could lose up to $30.8 million in federal funding over the next decade. This is roughly the equivalent of 19 hospital beds, or 34 nurses, or 19 doctors.* These cuts are the outcome of changes to Federal-State funding arrangements made in the 2014 budget, which saw $57 billion ripped from local hospitals over the next decade. The Turnbull Government's recent budget restored just $2.9 billion, locking in $54 billion of these cuts. Meanwhile the Coalition is trying to argue that they have increased health funding. These enormous funding cuts come at a time when the Australian Medical Association and Australian Nursing ​& Midwifery ​Federation are warning of an imminent crisis unless hospital funding is increased. They could mean fewer doctors, nurses, or beds, and longer emergency room and elective surgery wait times. But there's hope. In this critical pre-election period, polling shows that protecting our universal healthcare system is the number one vote-changing issue for Australians. The Coalition's attack on public health is clearly ringing alarm bells for voters, and we have a plan to turn the volume up. In the lead up to this year's Federal Election, people will step up in their local communities to call on their Federal MPs and local candidates to commit to adequately-funded hospitals. Together, we will lay the foundations for a strong and secure future where all Australians can receive the quality healthcare they need. *The funding loss projections per hospital are based on figures provided by the Parliamentary Budget Office (PBO) and hospital bed figures (2013) provided by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW). The projections are based on the full $57 billion cuts figure and represent our best estimate given the available data. For more information see: http://www.getup.org.au/hospital-funding
