Swinburne’s Queer Department lead the way for a horde of Swinburne students who turned up to the Rally for Marriage Equality last Saturday. The crowd was entertained, educated and moved by the speakers on the day, which included Charlie Pickering, Tommy Little and the one and only Magda Szubanski . The rally took place outside the state library, before the crowd marched to the Old Treasury building. SSU is proud of all the representatives who turned up and raised awareness on the important issue.
The Fight the TAFE Cuts Rally was held yesterday outside Premier Ballieu’s office to protest against the proposed cuts to TAFE funding in Victoria. Thousands of students and staff showed their support for ongoing funding of TAFE courses, including our own TAFE, Apprentices and Traineeships Rep, Fraser.

Our Full Moon Party kicked off last night. It was a Thai-themed extravaganza, with cocktail buckets and kicking beats from Molte Bene and Brad E, we pretended it wasn’t chilly outside and partied the night away. Thanks to everyone who came along. We hope to see you all up at the Union Bar next Tuesday.
