Archive for 'SBS'

Evidently the ANZACs died for free speech, except at SBS

McIntyre was telling his version of the truth, a version much closer to reality than the war porn about ANZAC Day the Australian ruling class has force fed us over the last week. Sacking McIntyre explodes the lies of the ruling class that our participation in this imperialist war was about defending freedom and democracy then and now.

Strike to defend the ABC and SBS

We need more protesters and less Tony Jones on ‘our’ ABC. So how can we defend the ABC and SBS? How can we defend the jobs, the work-life balance of the remaining workers and the ability to deliver some quality programs from time to time instead of the shit dished up on the commercial channels?

There is only one way. The two main unions, the Media Arts and Entertainment Alliance and the Community and Public Sector Union have to call their members out on strike until the government backs down. The unions would have mass support if they did this. The ACTU and individual unions have to pledge that if any action is taken against these ‘illegal’ strikes under bourgeois law then members in other unions will walk off the job. This is the only way to stop Abbott and Turnbull, and in doing that we open up the possibility of a more democratic and popular ABC and SBS reflecting the views of a population which is far to the left of the major political parties on most issues.

In defending the ABC and SBS we have the chance to reclaim them.
