Asylum Seeker Assistance Scheme (ASAS) and Community Assistance Scheme (CAS)
Recent changes in the charging arrangements for clients in these schemes have been determined. Ambulance transport charges for asylum seekers in the ASAS and CAS will be directed to the appropriate service provider by AV for full payment. Please note that payment of a bill for emergency patient transport of a client in ASAS or CAS is assessed by the service provider on a case by case basis. Current providers are:
• Australian Red Cross
• Adult Migrant English Service (AMES)
• New Hope Foundation
• Spectrum MRC
• Springvale Community Aid and Advice Bureau
• Diversitat Geelong
• Sunraysia Mallee Ethnic Communities Council (Mildura)
• Mallee Family Care (Swan Hill)
• Uniting Care Cutting Edge (Shepparton).
Those agencies whose clients also include non ASAS/CAS asylum seekers, who have no capacity to pay, can request a waiver of emergency ambulance fees for these particular clients only.

We address the following questions:
1. Industrial question: The Master/servant relationship. The struggle for Worker Control.
2. Ownership question: Who owns the land? Rights to the city, right to country. The struggle of indigenous people for land rights and social justice in Australia.
3. Political question: This is the class struggle. Who owns the means of production? Who governs? How are democratic rights won and shared.
