Lift the australian age pension above the poverty line

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200,000!

There are hundreds of thousands of aged pensioners who barely survive each week on our meager pension

which is below the poverty line.

many of us eat only one meal a day, we turn of the hot water for 6 months a year so that we can survive.

we can't afford a phone, never mind the Internet. Getting medical/ dental care is beyond our reach.

those of us who have to rent pay over half our income to have shelter, leaving us almost destitute.

We want an independent tribunal to set our pensions, as described in today's Press club address, with no political influence.
