Not just because Brazil has won the FIFA World Cup a record fives times (and will host the next event in June!) but also for all the great soccer players as Maradona and Messi from Argentina, Ronaldinho and Neymar from Brazil, among many others.

UTAS staff and students came together to show their opposition to the proposed budget, especially in terms of higher education cuts and Newstart changes at the Hobart campus Wednesday afternoon. MPs Lisa Singh and Bryan Green joined the protest and both spoke to the crowd, thanking them for their support against this “heartless and cruel budget”. In a symbolic act, students burnt a copy of budget, amongst chants from the crowd.
