Campaigner Spotlight: Anti Poverty Network South Australia
Anti-Poverty Network SA (APNSA) is an alliance of people affected and concerned by poverty and unemployment, including job-seekers, low income workers, sole parents, age and disability pensioners, students, community and welfare workers, and others.
APNSA recently organised a choir of 60 people who have previously or currently are on Newstart to perform a twist of the iconic 1972 Labour campaign song. The lyrics altered, making a call that it's time for an increase in Newstart. Watch the video below.
The song, as part of their It's Time campaign, highlights the inadequacy of Newstart due to it not being increased in real terms since 1994, almost 25 years ago.
