Join Auckland Action Against Poverty and the community as we rally for welfare reform!
On 30 May, 2019 the Government announces their Budget and decides where the money goes. On 08 June, 2019 we want you to come together in a movement to end poverty in Aotearoa New Zealand.
The Government falsely claims that there's Not Enough Left in their budget to end poverty. They can afford to end poverty, they just aren't willing to make the changes that the country needs. This leaves Not Enough Left in our budgets after we pay rent to live in dignity. It's time for that to change.
We want a welfare system that allows everyone to live with dignity. The Government has no intention of making the changes necessary for this, and have already announced that they will not increase benefit levels in this year's budget.
We recently saw the success of our campaign to end the Sanction on Sole Mothers, which punished mothers for not naming the father of their children. But the Government has refused to give these sanctioned mothers back pay. One victory won't reform our welfare system, we need to keep demanding change.
Join us to call for these changes, see how the 2019 budget will affect you and your whānau, and to learn more about Auckland Action Against Poverty and how you can be involved.
Come on Saturday, June 8th at 12:30pm to the Wiri Community Hall at 11 Inverell Ave in South Auckland for Speakers, Food, Poetry, and more.
All are welcome, and a kid's zone will be available.
It's just a 20 minute walk from the Manukau Train Station, or a shorter 12 minute bus ride. More detailed transport information can be found at this link, and will be available in the RSVP email.
