COMMUNITY MEETING: STAND UP FOR JOBS WITH JUSTICE

2pm @ Kurilpa Hall, 174 Boundary Street, West End.

Stand up for:
JOBS WITH JUSTICE

Mark Fordham, former CDEP co-ordinator at Ampilatwatja Community will be speaking in Brisbane. Mark is a proud Aboriginal man and LHMU member from the NT who was sacked by the Barkly Shire Council in April 2010 after taking a strong stand for his people.

Under the NT Intervention Aboriginal people are compelled to work 16 hours a week for $115 cash, plus $115 credit on a ‘BasicsCard’ which can only be used on ‘priority items’ in government approved stores. This is worse than Workchoices and Aboriginal workers have described it as a return to the “ration-days” when they were paid in food instead of cash. The NT Intervention promised to deliver ‘real jobs’ for Aboriginal communities. Instead, thousands of waged jobs have been lost and Aboriginal organisations have been crippled as Community Development Employment Projects (CDEP) close down. Come and hear Mark’s compelling story.
Organised by the Aboriginal Rights Coalition, UQ Students for Indigenous Rights. Endorsed by ETU(Q), Greens(Q), Unions NT, Just Rights.
