Unlike domestic students in NSW, international students are not eligible for travel concessions.
In 2006, this was determined to be racial discrimination, but still today the practice continues.
For decades students, student organisations, universities and community groups have been campaigning for international students to be able to have equal access to travel concessions as their local counterparts.
Now is the time for us to finally fix this - and end this discrimination in our laws.
Urge the Premier to support the Bill to grant international students travel concessions - SIGN THE PETITION HERE.
Jenny Leong MP, Greens Member for Newtown and spokesperson for Multiculturalism today gave notice of a Private Member’s Bill in the NSW Legislative Assembly to support international students by giving them concessions on public transport.
Thank you to the 5014 people who have signed the Greens' petition to save Carriageworks.
Yesterday Jamie Parker MP, Cate Faehrmann MP and I presented our petition to the Premier, calling on her to:
Scrap the Powerhouse Museum relocation
Guarantee funding to keep Carriageworks alive
Implement a rescue package for struggling artists and creatives
