Fresh campaign targets ‘pokies people’

GetUp’s campaign for major supermarkets Coles and Woolworths to introduce $1 bets and $120 maximum losses was successful in calling an extraordinary meeting of Woolworths’ shareholders to consider a resolution to introduce limits on its poker machines. On the Saturday before the meeting GetUp members took to the footpath outside the Redfern supermarket to give information flyers, stickers and reusable grocery bags to shoppers. The resolution was comprehensively defeated at the meeting, with 95 per cent of investors voting against it, so the campaign continues. More information: www.thepokiespeople.org
