Merry Christmas

Dastyari is small beer

Australia does a thousands times more to Papua New Guinea and Nauru than what Turnbull et al are complaining China is trying to do to us through the likes of Dastyari.  Barnarby Joyce is even threatening New Zealand as part of this process.

Of course Chinese imperialism is a threat. US imperialism is our day to day reality.  But the main enemy is at home. Australian imperialism is the biggest enemy working people in Australia and the region have.

The battle for equality continues

  The marriage equality battle seems all but won, but the fight against reaction and for equality in many other areas goes on, I write in Independent Australia in an article called the onward march to equality.
