    “Students are happy to share the load of higher education funding, but if fees have to increase, why don't we simply look at slightly increasing the cap rather than completely deregulating the system? This move by the government is short-sighted and will not only have serious repercussions for the future of the higher education system in Australia, but also our future tax revenue base. http://youtu.be/2g69UTkr4pQ”

    “Our Government just screwed us. The Abbott Government has struck a dodgy deal to fast-track Adani's coal port in our Reef World Heritage Area. They're trying to silence any scrutiny of Adani's plans to dump dredge spoil in a turtle breeding ground. Even worse, the government won't even bother with a full Environmental Impact Statement. Now we know for sure. Our government wants to help foreign mining companies more than they want to protect our Reef. They want to hide this. Don't let them.”
