Following a well-supported local Rally of over 100 people to protest cuts to Victoria University TAFE on Thursday October 11, Friends of Victoria University has called a public meeting for Wednesday October 17 to protest the cuts and build a huge community campaign to restore funding to TAFE and vote the Baillieu Government out at the next election. A new half billion dollar prison but $300 million cuts to the community. What will this mean for the community.
