Emergency TAFE Rally Melbourne
Two thousand TAFE teachers, staff and students rallied outside State Treasury today, along with other education, community and union supporters.
The protest was called after State Government TAFE transition plan documents were leaked last week revealing plans for closing and selling multiple campuses.
Protesters voiced anger over the cuts and the impacts they will have not just on TAFEs but the wider community and the future of public education in Victoria.
Speakers at the rally included affected TAFE students and teachers, as well as politicians and union officials.
