Premier of Queensland: Stop the Cuts to Community Services

    1. Petition by

      Queenslanders Uniting

Every day another important community service closes because Campbell Newman has cut their funding - leaving more hardworking Queenslanders unemployed.

The community sector provides the social safety net for many Queenslanders – keeping our state fair, equitable and inclusive.

We need to let the government know that we will not accept cuts that leave the most vulnerable in our society without support.

Every cut the government makes to the community sector makes it more likely another Queenslander will fall through the net.

We cannot just stand by and let the government attack the organisations, workers or clients that make up the community sector.

We need to stand up for vital community services, and protect the community sector from the savage cuts Premier Newman has proposed.

      It is important to have these community services in place for the many people suffering hardship! The LNP's cuts are certainly making life very hard and a lot are suffering hardship due to their slashing of jobs. At the moment the food banks are not keeping up with demand as it is and now after this, it will no doubt get worse! Shame on you and your Government Mr Newman. I'm sure your family will enjoy plenty of gifts under the tree come this Christmas, not to mention the big turkey dinner you will no doubt have. I hope come Christmas day, you think of the many who will be going without ! Though personally, I don't think you will give a damm, Mr Can Can't Newman. These cuts only prove it, in my opinion!

      Services to those who have suffered in violent relationships and are in dire need should not be cut. They deserve MORE support, not less.

      The LNP do not give a stuff about rural and remote Queensland.

      We can not have a society that is not meeting the critical needed of people in unfortunate circumstates. We need these services.
