The current situation in Gaza

2w ago
The ongoing conflict in Gaza has now displaced over 1.9 million people — in many cases, more than once. Deprived of the basics like clean water and food, disease and starvation are deadly risks. Here’s the latest update on life in Gaza, and what your support has helped deliver so far.  As of last week, Gaza has been under siege for four months. More than 25,000 Palestinians have been killed, and thousands more lay buried under rubble. More than 60,000 people are thought to be injured, with many of these injuries likely to result in permanent disability.   The 1.9 million people ..read more

Oxfam has been part of a movement of organisations advocating against the unfair stage-three tax cuts, which would have deepened inequality in Australia. The Government’s changes are a substantial improvement, but they won’t solve the inequality problem in Australia. Here’s how we’re working to make tax fair.  In recent weeks, the Albanese Government has announced changes to the stage-three tax cuts that will make them fairer – a welcome diversion from what would have been a devastating tax change that would have exacerbated inequality in Australia.    Over the past year, O ..read more

The wealth of the three richest Australians, Gina Rinehart, Andrew Forrest and Harry Triguboff, has more than doubled since 2020 at a staggering rate of $1.5 million per hour.

The richest 1% emit as much carbon pollution as two-thirds of humanity This is one of the shocking findings of Oxfam’s landmark ‘Climate Equality: A Planet for the 99%’ report released ahead of the annual United Nations international climate change conference COP28.    We also found that it would take about 1,500 years for someone in the bottom 99% globally to produce as much carbon as the richest billionaires do in a year.     In fact, the emissions of the wealthiest 1% are so high that every year they cancel out the carbon savings coming from nearly one mil ..read more
