July 5: Disability policy, asylum seekers, lowering the voting age


This week on Represent we have a feature on disability policy – the government is looking at changing the disability support pension but what does this mean for young people?

We’ll also be taking a look at what is happening with asylum seekers trying to get to Australia and the latest conflict between Israel and Palestine.

Should the voting age be lowered to 16 and what is youth parliament? Tune in to the podcast to find out.
