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)

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 […]

Occupy our Universities?

It is time for students, staff and the public to reclaim our Universities from the snake oil sales men and women of neoliberalism. Occupy our Universities. Close them down to win a new era in higher education.

Who would you believe – Christopher ‘the Grub’ Pyne or Socialist Alternative?

The 2014 Abbott-Hockey Budget has managed to unite millions against the Young Liberals Student Club currently in government. Socialist Alternative has been active in organising the fight against their bosses’ Budget. That is why they are under attack from the likes of Pyne. Who would you believe? Christopher Pyne or Socialist Alterantive?

National Union of Students National Day of Protest: Abbott & Pyne Hands Off our Education!

Students need to come out in a show of force against Pyne’s callous attacks on our right to education and our quality of education.

There will be demonstrations in every major city on Wednesday March 26th as part of a National Day of Action organised by the National Union of Students.

Victoria police viciously attack student demonstration

“Victoria Police clearly had a premeditated agenda of attacking our peaceful protest. They came out of nowhere. Riot cops moved in on the crowd and pulled people out. One of the first people they arrested, Lauren Stevenson, was unconscious as they pulled her towards the paddy wagon. We attempted to get an ambulance to her, but police said an ambulance would not be allowed to attend because she was under arrest. So they put her in the paddy wagon unconscious and drove away.”

Universities – can’t see the Forrest for the Twiggies?

‘Forrest has never signed a corporate income tax cheque for any of the listed companies he has run in the past 16 years. And FMG has another $700 million in tax losses still to bring to account before he will have to do so.’ Laura Tingle AFR 17 June 2011.
