Last night we witnessed a complete lack of urgency and substance in the Federal Budget to address the ongoing disadvantage faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The Budget is all about priorities, and the government has failed to prioritise the health and wellbeing of the nation’s First Peoples.
Tomorrow night, Treasurer Scott Morrison will stand in front of the nation and deliver the 2017 Federal Budget. It will lay out the priorities for investment and cuts, and we’ll be watching closely.
In meetings with the government, and with the help of our supporters who have tirelessly written to MPs, we’ve made it clear time and time again that you can’t cut from those most in need.
