The Labor Party is the party of change in Australian politics. Medicare, the Racial Discrimination Act, the establishment of legal aid, Triple J, widespread access to higher education, carbon pricing, Gonski funding, compulsory superannuation and so much more only occured because of Labor Governments.

With Tony Abbott attacking so many of the programs and institutions that mark Australian society, Labor is fighting to protect schemes such as the Renewable Energy Target, Medicare and a fair HELP loan scheme for university students.
