Marchers at the No Income Management Rally last Saturday in Bankstown, Sydney. Leaders such as Barbara Shaw (holding sign above) described the humiliation of Aboriginal people in Northern Territory caused by the government quarantining their income and forcing them to use a ration card. This income management will now be trialled on welfare recipients in Bankstown and other parts of Australia. Many speakers called for real jobs for disadvantaged Australians to end welfare dependency and poverty.
