Me quoted in Fairfax papers on tax haven use
Me quoted by Georgia Wilkins in The Age (and other Fairfax publications) today. John Passant, from the school of political science and international relations, at the Australian National University, said the trend noted by Computershare was further evidence multinationals did not take global regulators seriously. ”US companies are doing this on the hard-nosed basis that any [regulatory] changes that will be made won’t have an impact on their ability to avoid tax,” he said. ”They think it is going to take a long time for the G20 to take action, or that they are just all talk.” (1)

Archive for 'Australia Day'

From invasion to resistance in Australia

Capitalism could not flourish without crushing the resistance of people who wanted to live differently, writes Tom O’Lincoln in Red Flag. That has been true in every corner of the globe. Private property, wage labour and the drive to accumulate capital were incompatible with Aboriginal society. That incompatibility was the basis of the genocide that followed.

Australia Day is Invasion Day

Australia Day perpetuates the country’s ‘founding’ racist myths and is part of the system that enslaves our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander brothers and sisters and as a consequence, all of us here. It is Invasion Day. In the spirit of true reconciliation let’s abolish this celebration of genocide. Let’s instead celebrate the 65000 years of indigenous history and stewardship of this land. Recognise Aboriginal sovereignty, negotiate a treaty and pay the rent. It is time to fight for justice.

What’s to celebrate on Australia Day?

This pamphlet, written 75 years ago, appeals, in such blistering tone, to take “pause in the midst of your…rejoicings” and is well worth repeating on this, the 225th anniversary of invasion.

‘Aliens in their own land’

A major protest has been called for Thursday 26 January in Canberra to commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the Tent Embassy and to continue the ongoing struggle for Aboriginal rights. There is still plenty more to fight for with both Liberal and Labor governments relentlessly continuing their racist assault on Aboriginal people, graphically illustrated by the appalling Northern Territory intervention.

Australia day and reaction

Without a left-wing political or industrial focus some of the exploited, the forgotten and the marginalised have turned to nationalism and its twin, racism, as crutches for the loss of working class community and working class strength in action.

Australia Day celebrates racism and genocide

If Wikileaks teaches us anything it is that our leaders lie. And lie. And lie. Australia Day will be no different. Bourgeois cliches about the lucky country (what irony!) and our great nation will compete with bullshit about our brave soldiers overseas and how we all in  this together.  It’s time for some truth about […]
