I've been filming at protests for the last 5 years in Australia as an independent film-maker using the footage I capture in documentaries. I've always wanted to make a video using all the protests I have filmed at and this is it, well, almost all the protests I've filmed at. This video is rather special to me and I composed this tune myself for my latest documentary, Surviving Earth. http://youtu.be/Grvf9TNCmwY

Baillieu government funds new prisons while slashing public TAFE education

Angry TAFE teachers and students attended a rally today to protest the massive cuts to TAFE vocational education and training in the Victorian Budget handed down on May 1, 2012. The implications of massive defunding is a softening up of the public TAFE institutes for privatisation. The budget cuts will mean substantial redundancies of teachers, especially in smaller regional TAFE institutes, a major increase in course fees, and loss of subsidiary student services such as study skills assistance, library services and counselling.
