The Education Action Group is a campus- based collective of activists. We are primarily focused on organising the fight for free education and mobilising against government and localised attacks. We believe that education should be a right, not a privilege for only those who can afford it. This perspective informs much of our work and leads us to other areas of activism.
The Turnbull government continues to try to cut education funding and make students pay more whilst worsening the quality of our education.
This year, the EAG has resolved to take up a range of issues, particularly focusing on anti racist activism. As the far right continues to grow in influence around the world, Islamophobia intensifies and outrageous injustice inflicted upon indigenous people and refugees continues, it has never been a more important time to be an anti racist activist.
We meet regularly throughout the semester! Join our Facebook group to get involved: https://www.facebook. com/groups/usydeag/ or contact Lily or Lara, the Education officers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
