This weekend Save Tenant Services campaigners will be out and about at local markets to help spread the word about the issues facing tenants in Qld concerned with the loss of services.
We will be asking market goers to sign letters to the Qld Premier, Campbell Newman, to pass on a small amount of tenants’ bond interest to fund a tenant advice service for Qld tenants and the Federal Attorney-General, George Brandis to keep tenants advice services alive until the Qld Govt returns the funding.
For the next two weekends we’ll be at Rocklea Sunday Markets – head over to say g’day. After that we’ll be at Mt Gravatt, Manly and West End (Davies Park) Markets.
We’re still inviting supporters to help us with the markets, visit your local MP, distribute information to friends and neighbours etc. If you’d like to help with the campaign, please let us know on the volunteer form.
Strong coffee, deliciously healthy fruit & veg & a good old fashioned letter writing campaign. Perfect weekend!
Hi all Queenslanders, in Brisbane and elsewhere, and who is struggling hard to save Tenants Advice Services! I wish that I could have been there with you, at the markets and elsewhere in Queensland where things are happening! I wish you all a successful campaign! A special ‘best wishes’ to Penny Carr, statewide coordinator at TUQ, who I know is wholeheartedly devoted to this cause, to save all TAS offices. /Magnus Hammar, IUT Stockholm
