Strengthen the social safety net. Stop tearing it apart: Petition

We stand together to say enough is enough. Social security is a right.

We condemn this government’s latest attempts to dismantle Australia’s social safety net by cutting income support payments for people already living below the poverty line.

The social safety net is there to support us if we lose our job, get sick, undertake study, care for children or someone else, have a disability, or need support when we get older.

It is an entitlement, not a crime, to receive an income support payment in Australia.

This government must stop treating people on low incomes as though they are doing something wrong or breaking the law, just because they are receiving a payment.
