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.
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.

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.
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?
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 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.”
‘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.
This is me at Kim Carr’s launch at the ANU of his new book on why you should sell your soul to the devil and join the ALP.
The ANU exposes the reality of Labor’s university cuts: cutting jobs and wages and increasing workloads
As the BLF used to say: ‘If you don’t fight, you lose.’ The stark choice facing students and staff at Universities today is to fight to defend higher education or to surrender.
We’re for building a fighting union, not a lobby group. A genuine political campaign would centre on industrial action against the budget cuts.
