The Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) costs Australian students over $100 million every year. This unfair tax disproportionately affects struggling students, while benefiting those who are better off and have more time to take advantage of the services and activities it funds.
Since its introduction in 2011, the ALSF has been a vocal advocate for the abolishment of the SSAF. Our position is backed by the majority of students – the most recent polling showed that only 1 in 5 support the tax, and 52% don’t believe they are getting value for money.
In reality, the SSAF is just a form of compulsory student unionism that forces students to fund the extreme left on university campuses across Australia. This money is used to engage in radical campaigns that seek to undermine the Australian way of life. And the average student has little to no say in how the SSAF is spent. Join us in the fight against this unfair and unnecessary tax.
