Tuesday afternoon greetings 🙂

It’s April 10th, which it the 11th anniversary of the legalisation of assisted suicide and voluntary euthanasia of people with incurable conditions in the Netherlands. And on this day in 1919 Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata was executed.

It’s 963 days (2 years, 7 months, 2 weeks and 5 days) until the next election. It looks as though things are going to be grim in the interim, both locally and nationally, and we’ll need to pull together in support of our fellow unionists and our colleagues. But, as we’ve so conclusively demonstrated, the nurses, united, will never be defeated! So: today Mental Health; tomorrow Aged Care; 2014 a change of government
