Untouched billions in tax rorts for the rich

This is the link to my article in socialist magazine Solidarity on the untouched billions in tax rorts for the rich.

No matter who wins the election, the rich will still rule

  The rich run society in the interest of profit—and we can’t vote them out come July, explains James Supple in socialist magazine Solidarity. He starts off by saying: ‘Elections are about deciding who runs the country, they say. But most of the power in our society is not held in parliament, and even the […]

Budget 2016: Robbing the poor to pay the rich – talking notes for a Solidarity talk Thursday 12 May at ANU

The drive to attack the poor, students and workers is systemic. It requires a systemic response.

My forthcoming talk on the Panama Papers: capitalism is working well for the 1%

I am speaking this Thursday at the ANU in Canberra on the Panama Papers, inequality, taxing the rich and much much more. The Panama Papers have revealed yet again that the rich rig the game and pay little tax. Instead of taxing the rich the Government wants us to ‘live within our means’. This is code for […]

For Greens-union-Labor unity in the fight against Turnbull

The debate over Senate voting reform and the Australian Building and Construction Commission (ABCC) legislation is seriously undermining the united left we need to kick out Turnbull and defeat the Liberals’ anti-union agenda.

Racism in Australia: how we can fight it – Canberra Solidarity meeting this Thursday

The government’s cruel refugee policies help to spread lies and xenophobia. The recent campaign to “Let them Stay”—over the government’s threat to deport 267 refugees—has shown that ordinary people will stand up against racist policy. Come to this Solidarity meeting in Canberra on Thursday to discuss how we can best fight together against racism in Australia. […]

Stop Hutchison’s divide and rule tactics: restart the strike and fight for every job

In light of the return to work and then exclusion of some Hutchison workers, comrades in Solidarity in Sydney have written an article about the way forward for Hutchison workers to beat the boss and defend every job. They say among other things:

The union has to be able to negotiate from a position of strength. The only sensible approach is to keep the workforce united; restart the strike action, and maximise the pressure on Hutchison’s.’

Reject union grandstanding against ‘foreign workers’

The problem is not foreign workers, argues Paddy Gibson in Solidarity. It is the bosses. Paddy rebuts the idea that foreign workers cause unemployment. He says, among other things:

‘Abbott government cuts and corporate profiteering are to blame for job losses, not foreign workers. But sadly, unions have done little to fight these very real attacks. Union-wide mobilisations against Abbott’s budget have been abandoned. There has also been no industrial campaign against the mass sackings at Holden, BP or Australia Post. Grandstanding against “foreign workers” is a far easier option, but it only sets back the fight for jobs.’
