Every day we are inspired by the incredible generosity of Australians. Yet at the same time our government's repeated cuts to aid make it the least generous in our history.

So what do you think — is Australia still generous?

More coal = more poverty.

The federal government must ban new coal mines in Australia – starting with the disastrous Adani proposal.

Greedy coal polluters like Adani are threatening to push millions of people into deeper poverty. And our government is backing them all the way by aggressively pushing expanded coal exports and failing to curb Australia's own pollution.

There is just one of the big four banks that is still lagging behind when it comes to financing companies that commit human rights abuses and land grabs.

Which bank? The Commonwealth Bank. Send their CEO a message now telling them to stop bankrolling unethical companies.

"I worry about the future all the time. My children are suffering from hunger."

In drought-ravaged Eastern Somaliland, mothers like Seynes are being pushed to the edge, desperately seeking food for their children as their country stands on the brink of famine.

Before the drought, Seynes' children used to eat meat and milk every day. Now Seynes says she tries to give them a little sugar until...

BREAKING: You spoke, Labor listened.

Bill Shorten MP has just pledged to make large multinationals publicly reveal their tax affairs in every country they operate in. This would make Australia a world leader on cracking down on tax cheats.

This is a big win for people power and a big win for people in developing countries.

Every year Aussie-based multinationals are robbing an estimated $9...

Don't be tricked by the Government's spin: they can and must do more to #MakeTaxFair.

What happened to Scott Morrison's belief in "compassion" and "justice"?

In his maiden speech to Parliament in 2008, Scott Morrison called for investment in Australian Aid to be increased. Yesterday, as Treasurer, he cut Australian Aid to a new record low.

There’s nothing compassionate about this. At a time when the world faces multiple humanitarian crises, cutting Australia’s tiny aid...
