Join me and other concerned residents at noon on Saturday to protest the Liberal State Government's sell-off of inner-city public housing. We will also be calling for public housing and affordable housing only to be built on the Cowper Street site which has shamefully been sitting empty since 2011.
HANDS OFF PUBLIC HOUSING RALLY 12PM SATURDAY 25 OCTOBER 2014 corner Bay & Wentworth Sts, Glebe
October 22, 2014. MEDIA RELEASE Thursday morning Greens MP Jamie Parker will introduce a bill to protect TAFE from cuts and privatisation into the lower house. The bill will protect TAFE from budget cuts, rising fees and charges, job losses and an increasingly de-skilled and casual workforce.
The Greens’ bill seeks a moratorium on changes to TAFE which are threatening the very existence of the public provider of vocational education and training. It would stop the ‘Smart and Skilled’ training market, restore TAFE funding and freeze TAFE fees.

Election funding laws passed the NSW Parliament late on Tuesday night. -- Greens MP Jamie Parker said he was disappointed by final shape of the bill because it "fails to comprehensively lock the door on corruption in NSW."
"The Government and Labor blocked Greens amendments that would have made substantial reductions to the amount of political donations and election campaign spending," he said.
