Marx on divide and rule

The real face of terrorism in Australia

Our first response must be to defend Kurdish Australian journalist Renas Lelikan. Our second response must be to try to build a mass movement against the normalisation of racism and right wing terrorism, driven by the State and the media, in Australian society today.

The roots of Hansonism

Pauline Hanson is one expression of the 30 years of state Islamophobia, racism, locking up refugees, the Northern Territory intervention etc etc. We need to fight Hanson AND the Labor and Liberal policies that create the cesspit in which she and all the others like her can and do live. We need to build a mass movement.

Ban bigots, not Muslims

A mass movement can force the racist scum back under their rocks for now.

Jokes about violence towards women are indicative of systemic misogyny that normalises the oppression of women, writes John Passant In Independent Australia. To read the whole article in Independent Australia click here. Violence against women: the Price is wrong

Murrandoo Yanner gives Pauline Hanson some advice

Aboriginal leader Murrandoo Yanner lets Pauline Hanson know what’s what.

Statement by Turkish revolutionaries: No to the coup! Fight for democracy!

This is a statement by the Central Committee of the Revolutionary Socialist Workers Party (DSİP) of Turkey on 16 July 2016 against the coup attempt. They finish off by saying: ‘The fight against the coup must be a fight for democracy, it must continue and be turned into a fight against the restrictions on democracy. Those who want to set up a military junta cannot win! The people will win! ‘

Upside down world

Greens’ moderation a road to nowhere

Whether over refugees, equal marriage or fighting further cuts, it is not The Greens’ actions in parliament that will be decisive, writes James Supple in Solidarity. What matters is the strength of the movements in the workplaces and on the streets. If The Greens continue to ignore that, they will be left on the margins.
