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)

REFUGEE RIGHTS ACTION NETWORK – SYNTHESISED ACCOUNT OF THE ATTACKS ON MANUS The following account has been put together from multiple sources that various Refugee Rights Action Network activists […]

Refugee detention centres: Australia’s concentration camps

Immigration minister Scott Morrison has attempted to erect a wall of silence around the government’s treatment of refugees writes Ben Hillier in Red Flag. But the awful truth is the government’s worst kept secret: the Manus Island and Nauru concentration camps are hellholes.

Labor’s concentration camp on Nauru may soon claim its first life

Omid, the Iranian asylum seeker on Nauru who has now been on hunger strike for 47 days, is rapidly deteriorating. It is likely he will die within the next few days. There are also five other Iranians on their 27th day of a hunger strike and 30 others who joined them last Friday.

Another message from those imprisoned in the Australian concentration camp on Nauru

In short period we have seen asylum attempted suiciding, self-harming, mentally disturbed, stressed, naked themselves, protests and hunger strikes. So what will be result in the future?

We request to the government and people of Australia save our lives and future.

Regards
Asylum seekers on Nauru

Close down Australia’s concentration camp on Nauru

Our task is great. Our struggle is important. To end the criminal refugee policies of our one percent we must build bigger and bigger demonstrations to force Labor to treat asylum seekers humanely and end the death trip it forces them into. While there are the various magnificent refugee groups working brilliantly for asylum seekers there is no significant revolutionary left in Australia that could defend refugees as part of its more general defence of workers and the oppressed.

Now more than ever we need a socialist alternative to give hope to refugees and those who support them and lead a real fight with a long term goal of having tens of thousands of people shutting down the centres of the major cities or striking to close down Australia’s concentration camps.

Close down your refugee concentration camps Julia Gillhoward

Labor plans ten years’ detention on Nauru or Manus Island for people who have committed no crime. All they have done is seek asylum.

In the age of truth telling we used to call these types of places concentration camps. It is time for that truth to be told again.

Close down your concentration camps Julia Gillhoward.

Asylum seekers: the descent further into hell begins

The first asylum seekers arriving after the Malaysian ‘solution’ have been picked up off Scott Reef. They will be transferred to Christmas Island and then sent to Malaysia.

As part of their anti-asylum seeker campaigns Labor and the Liberals, the two parties of the Australian ruling class, have appealed to and reinforced the racism the colonial settler state and outpost of Western imperialism developed and amplified to justify the genocide of indigenous people here and the invasions of foreign lands.

Tear gassing refugees

A government that tear gasses protesters is unworthy of support. Put the Minister responsible, Chris Evans, on trial for his crimes.

Close down the detention centres. Move back to community care.

Just as capital can freely around the globe, let labour do the same .

Open the borders to all who want to come here. Not only that but set up mass processing centres near trouble spots to bring millions of refugees here in planes.

More blood on Gillard’s hands

Julia Gillard is delivering death to those seeking liberty. Close down the detention centre concentration camps.

Burmese jails and Australian concentration camps

Here in Australia a Burmese asylum seeker escaped from one of our concentration camps (euphemistically called detention centres) but has since been found and locked up again. He escapes Burmese jails to end up in an Australian one. He has committed no crime in either country. In the name of human decency, and in accordance […]
