Photographer's Note

19 AUGUST 2004, COLLINS STREET, MELBOURNE

An anti-Howard government protester poses with a Socialist newspaper during the anti-HECs fees protest in Melbourne. The protesters took the opportunity to voice complaints about other issues on the political agenda, including Australian participation in 2003's Iraq War.

The protest was aimed at the Liberal Coalition government's introduction of new Higher Education fee system which will see lessened government subsidies and other benefits for tertiary applicants from 2005 onwards. There have been many such protests throughout the year since April, this is the largest one in a few months.
