Maxine Drake was the Guild’s Homosexual Information Officer in the 80s. We chatted about the feminism and gay liberation movements during her time at university, how she came about the role and what she took away from it.
The Guild’s “We Will Not Be Left Behind” campaign is calling for all parties in this election to take a stand against sexual assault and harassment by committing to establish a national taskforce to address the issue on university campuses.
All Guild Members are invited to attend and will have the right to vote on any resolution of the meeting. There is a free sausage sizzle and Guild Members in attendance will also receive a free beverage voucher for use during the event.
The Guild’s “We Will Not Be Left Behind” campaign demands include a call for the removal of subsidies given to fossil fuel companies, a flat 10% tax rate for gas companies for the next ten years, and the funding of free education as a result of these initiatives.
“The appalling state of universities is that they are expected to provide a quality education to an increased number of students with much less funding than ever before,” said Finlay Nolan, Curtin Guild President.
With the Federal election date set for 18 May, Curtin Student Guild is launching the “We Will Not Be Left Behind” campaign to encourage all students and young people to get involved and put pressure on the major political parties to meet their demands and priorities.
