Get Up and Stand Against Pokies

Buying groceries is not normally synonymous with gambling, but Woolworth’s ownership of pokies within Australia has changed that.

The organisation GetUp!ย has called its members to action, and thanks to their petition, there will be an Extraordinary General Meeting for Woolworths shareholders held in Adelaide on Thursday. There will be a march held outside the meeting to encourage Woolworth’s shareholders to make pokies safer to use.

Joining Angus Randall to tell her story about her pokies addiction was Sharon Hollamby, from Communities Against Pokies.
