Repairing their cuts to Australian Aid?
Making multinationals contribute their fair share of tax?
Funding real climate solutions, instead of dirty polluters?
Empowering Indigenous communities with resources to close the gap on disadvantage?

“Apparently starvation in Africa no longer shocks us.” Do you agree?

With the world on the brink of an unprecedented four famines across South Sudan, Nigeria, Yemen and the Horn of Africa, the UN has warned that as many as 1.4 million children could die of starvation in the coming months — unless urgent help is delivered to those at risk.

This government’s repeated cuts to #AustralianAid make it the least generous in our country's history.

And the cuts could not come at a worse time. With more than 20 million people at risk of starvation in South Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria and Yemen; and more than 11 million people forced to flee their homes in Syria; agencies like Oxfam are already struggling to cope with multiple humanitarian...

Outrageous. Yet another example of governments ignoring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices in the name of big business.

Our report released today noted that when mining interests are impacted by native title laws, governments are all too quick to make changes without any consultation with Indigenous communities.

We're calling on our governments reset the agenda. It's time they...

'It is coal's supporters who can be seen as the true ideologues of the energy debate. Even here in India.' In The Sydney Morning Herald, Mark Kenny writes that India is scaling up clean energy, with plans to triple its renewable energy generation within five years.

More coal means more extreme poverty. India knows it, and is busy preparing for a clean energy future.

Australia, take note.

In many parts of Ethiopia, it hasn’t rained in more than two years. Vulnerable families don't have enough food or water, and have been stretched to their limits.

Thanks to you, we are on the ground, trucking in water to families in need. We must end this crisis now before more innocent women, men and children starve.
