ABC News report about today’s protests in Perth over the Federal Government’s $2.3bn cuts to university funding.
Members of the National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU) and students staged protests this morning at Curtin University, Murdoch University, the University of Western Australia and Edith Cowan University.
NTEU Division President Gabe Gooding told the ABC that the cuts were particularly bad for Western Australia because of the decision many years ago to move the school starting age forward by six months.

It was recently reported that 26 community organisations in NSW—including the Welfare Rights Centre, Lifeline (Sydney and Sutherland), Redfern Legal Centre’s financial counselling service, the Gay and Lesbian Counselling service and Twenty10—are at risk of having their funding cut by the NSW Government.
As a former community sector worker and then lecturer in social sciences, I appreciate how important these organisations are to the communities they assist and represent. They provide vital services to people in need, often on a tight budget.
The potential loss of funding, a result of new efficiency measures set by the NSW government, would have a devastating effect on these services, their staff and the community.
I would encourage all NTEU members to sign this petition calling on the O’Farrell government to protect community services funding, which was created by NTEU Sydney Branch member Megan.
