June 12 was the date for the Bust The Budget rally organised by the Victorian Trades Hall Council. The rally was to protest the budget proposal by the national Coalition government. The budget disproportionately disadvantages the poorer segment of Australian society and will leave us with a country we don’t recognise as Australia (particularly through the changes to access to universal healthcare and the safety net of unemployment benefits). Thousands took to the streets in Melbourne yesterday to show their anger over the proposed budget.
