One Nation and the Nick Xenophon Political Party have hung vulnerable Australian children out to dry. Struggling families with one parent out of work have just had their access to childcare slashed in half or scrapped altogether. SHARE this video to hold them accountable - LIKE to DISLIKE this attack on our most vulnerable.

Do you live in the southern suburbs and feel angry and upset about how unemployed people and others on welfare payments are treated?

Do you want to be involved in a group that believes people out of work should be treated with fairness and respect, instead of punished and blamed for things outside their control?

Then come along to this!! We will be discussing and planning future events and projects aiming to improve the lives of people on welfare.

Anti-Poverty Network SA is an alliance of people on Centrelink payments - carers, Disability Pensioners, job-seekers, students, single parents, Age Pensioners - fighting back against government attacks.

We hold forums, picnics, rallies, and do all sorts of advocacy, campaigning, community, educational, and other activities.

All Welcome.

The welfare card is nothing more than the demonisation and scapegoating of poor people for an economic system unwilling or incapable of providing work and wellbeing for everyone! ... See MoreSee Less

84% respondents to a poll in the local paper said the #RationCard was not a success. #NoWelfareCard #HumanRights #TudgeFail
