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)

Pyne’s strategic retreat

The Illawarra Mercury on opponents of the higher education reforms and Pyne’s supposed back down.

John Passant, of protest group UOW Uncut, said the concessions were a temporary measure designed to persuade undecided senators.

The rise and fall of free education

Free education was won through consistent protest in the 1970s and can be won back now through consistent protest writes John Rainford in Green Left Weekly.

The looming job cuts at the University of Wollongong part II

Mr Passant believes the university will rein in pay rises, opt not to renew contracts and employ fewer casuals to meet the target.

[And that is before redundancies.]

Bosses and the state are the main beneficiaries of higher education

The government and the capitalists are the primary beneficiaries of higher education Duncan Hart writes in Red Flag. “Fairness” would be the exact opposite of the government’s plans to cut subsidies and introduce deregulated fees. Rather it would mean a system in which education is free and accessible to all and paid for by a tax on employers.

It’s shameful to use bogus claims of anti-Semitism to shut your opponents down

Jeff Sparrow in Overland: It’s shameful to use bogus allegations of anti-Semitism to shut your opponents down.

Are you or have you ever been a member of Socialist Alternative?

We on the left must defend Socialist Alternative, its right to free speech and to organise.

In defence of free speech; in defence of the Socialist Alternative club at Monash University against its banning by Zionists

If you support Palestine, and if you support free speech, I call on you to support Socialist Alternative at Monash University and across Australia in defence of Palestine, in opposition to Pyne’s higher education armaggedon and to join the fight against political repression.

Minister Pyne’s claims of anti-Semitism by Socialist Alternative are lies

Education Minister Christopher Pyne labels Socialist Alternative, with no evidence whatsoever, anti-Semitic. This calumny is the last refugee of Zionist scoundrels who cannot rebut the evidence of Israel’s war crimes in Gaza. In fact recent analysis shows that there has not been a global increase in anti-Semitism but rather in anti-Israeli sentiment, based on the reality of the crimes Israel is committing in Gaza. To conflate the two is a crude attempt by Zionists to bury the crimes of Israel alongside the bodies of the hundreds of murdered children in Gaza.

University of Wollongong Forum against cuts to higher education

A four minute video from the University of Wollongong paper The Tertangala of a recent UOW Uncut Forum there against cuts. “It’s education for rich people, not education for people who deserve it. I think that’s the fundamental issue here and that’s the one we should be speaking up against.” – Dr Colin Salter, UOW […]
