SACOSS responds to proposed new anti-protest laws

19 May 2023

SACOSS is concerned both by the potential unintended consequences of changes to legislation around South Australians' rights to peaceful protest, and the speed with which these changes are being made.
 
South Australia's record of progress arising from the work of the labour, environmental, and civil society movements is an enviable one. And peaceful protest has often been vital in helping achieve this progress.

SACOSS Human Rights Legislation Policy 2023

28 March 2023

SACOSS is calling for the introduction of a Human Rights Act for South Australia because every person – no matter their race, abilities, political beliefs, gender identification, sexuality, religion, age or cultural background or other characteristic – should be treated equitably.  To acknowledge this is to acknowledge that we all have human rights. And that these are universal, meaning they are for everyone, everywhere, all of the time.

No. 50, June Quarter 2022 - Rental Affordability in Regional SA

21 October 2022

This report focuses on rental affordability in regional South Australia and is the latest in a series of SACOSS Cost of Living Updates tracking changes in living costs for South Australians on low incomes and/or experiencing disadvantage. The evidence in this report clearly shows that, while there are fewer rental households in regional South Australia than in Adelaide, and that regional rental prices are generally lower than in the capital, there are still significant problems with rental affordability in regional areas.
