    How about a petition against LOSS MAKING state institutions?!

    Against State Monday, 24 October 2016 04:57 PM

    We need to privatized those loss making institutions and then government can spend more money on higher education and health sector. Thats what we need, not protect all other government institutions.

    How about a petition for selling the Buddhist philosophy

    Karen Monday, 24 October 2016 06:09 PM

    Fine if they want state owned institutions to continue cut back on their benefits and use the money to improve the education sector. What are the benefits citizens get from these institutions except frustration and waste of their time.
