TAFE rallies in Melbourne – July/August
The TAFE4All regional rallies throughout May and June saw thousands of teachers, PACCT staff, students and supporters mobilise at TAFE institutes around the state. Now we are gearing up for rallies at metro TAFE institutes, culminating in a mass rally on Thursday, August 16, in Melbourne's CBD (venue TBC).
Join us at your nearest campus to be part of the fightback and voice your opposition to this act of destruction.

We need to show how widespread the opposition to the Government's TAFE cuts is. These are events for the whole community — staff, students, families, supporters. The rallies are being organised by the AEU and NTEU and the local trades and labour councils are supporting them.
If you have been affected by the Government's cuts, please call talkback radio, write letters to the editor or contact your local MPs directly to ask them what they are doing to protect TAFE. We need to keep up this pressure.
