Clare O'Neil MP on growth, fairness and power
with Fatima Measham (of
ChatterSquare), Labor MP Clare O'Neil discusses the persistent gap between the rich and the poor, which has left many people disillusioned about how the economy and governments function, along with the questions: What does growth mean under these circumstances and is it still useful to talk about a working class? Clare presented at the Economics for a Flourishing Society forum, together with Joe Zabar and John Roskam at the recent national Catholic social services conference,
Hearing Healing Hope
, held in Melbourne between 21-23 February.

Palm Sunday rally to show support for asylum seekers
Pope Francis has challenged all of us with his action plan for Asylum Seekers and Refugees: to Welcome, to Protect, to Promote and to Integrate. Unfortunately Australia’s sad treatment of Asylum Seekers continues, and so once again we find ourselves needing to make a public witness to 'Welcome the Stranger'. On Palm Sunday, 25th March 2018, there will be a Liturgy of Welcome in St Patrick's Cathedral from 1pm – 1.30pm. Following the Liturgy, we will walk as one Faith Community (down Lonsdale street) to join the larger Public Rally, which starts at 2pm at the State Library.
Catholic Social Services Victoria acknowledges the Traditional Custodians and their Elders in each of the Communities where we work.
