Archive for 'Turn back the boats'

Is former ALP A.C.T Chief Minister Jon Stanhope about to jump from Labor’s sinking ship?

I think the alternative [to joining the Greens] is to build a left wing party based in the working class and on the struggles of today, both economic and political. Our final goal should be not like Labor or the Greens to manage capitalism but to win socialism, the democratic control of society so that production is to satisfy human need, not to make a profit. That is why I am proud to be a member of small socialist group Solidarity in Australia. So let me say to those good Labor Party members fighting for a better world against the Abbott Government and their own leadership, at least consider a socialist alternative like Solidarity. Join us on the streets and in the campaigns for refugees and asylum seekers.


‘Turning back the boats’ means attacking the Tent Embassy and all it stands for

The duality of racism in Australia means that when Abbott inflames racist tensions by attacking refugees he lays the groundwork for more and more brutal attacks on our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander brothers and sisters, including the Tent Embassy.
