7 year old Marxist

I spotted a seven year old Marxist yesterday. His T-shirt read : Make ice cream, not war.

The bipartisanship of death

Australian capitalism’s biggest export is death. The partisans of death cannot and will not entertain a humanitarian response to asylum seekers. We must force them to. The lives of refugees depend on us.

Christmas Island deaths – aren’t both major parties to blame?

Aren’t both major parties – Labor and Liberal – to blame for these Christmas Island deaths because of their bipartisan support for demonising and criminalising refugees, imprisoning them and forcing them to flee in boats to get here rather than providing rapid Australian resettlement programs from near the countries of origin, often countries we have […]

English student protests – what really happened on fees vote day

The fantastic student movement has shown the scale of anger at the government’s cuts assault. It has also exposed the vulnerability of the government.

The trade union movement now needs to throw its weight behind the student. It must defend students against police and media attacks, send support and solidarity to students fighting back—and take the spirit of resistance into workplaces up and down the country.
