Organising against Social Security and Poverty

social security benefits

This documentary was put together as part of my studies.

In spite of Australia having one of the highest standards of living, payments for those on welfare remain one of the lowest in the western world, well below the poverty line.

Recent government policies have only made the situation worse, forcing more and more marginalised people into the cycle of poverty.

Not content to simply accept their situation, those affected have been organising against what they see as unfair and unjust.

Most of the content in the documentary was recored by me, however some of the background noise was obtained through creative commons.
