Australian Single parents are uniting and marching on - or meeting at - Parliament Houses around Australia to protest low-income single parents being moved from the Parent Payment Single welfare payment to the greatly reduced Newstart Allowance.
This current policy reduces many Australian single parent family incomes significantly, forcing single parents and their children into poverty, regardless of if they are working already or not.
Australian single parent protest rallies are taking place around Australia on the national day of action - February 5 2013
