Thousands of people seeking protection while living in the Australian community are at risk of destitution and homelessness due to the latest government move to completely cut income support for people who need it the most.

  2. Write to the Prime Minister – here’s some handy hints: http://asrccampaigns.nationbuilder.com/handwritten_invite_to_pm
