HACSU wishes to convey it's condolences to the family of Gough Whitlam.
The Whitlam Government were responsible for a large number of ground-breaking reforms that improved the lives of many Australians, vs just the select few. It's thanks to Mr Whitlam that all Australians have access to universal health care. For women, he helped legislate a number of important legislation to enshrine their human rights. For many, the dream of higher education became a reality thanks to his abolishment of university fees.
Under his leadership, Australia became a forward-thinking, progressive society. He will be sorely missed. Vale Gough Whitlam.
