Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)



Marxism 2009 – Pilger, Habashi, Chit, Shaw, Kourkoulas, Kuhn …

Marxism 2009 Conference

Easter weekend: Thursday April 9 until Sunday April 12 at Melbourne University

Faced with a world dominated by war, inequality and deepening economic crisis, there is no better time to gather to discuss the crucial task of challenging capitalism and fighting for a better world.

Marxism 2009 will bring together hundreds of socialists and left-wing activists from across Australia and the region. Held over four days, Marxism 2009 will feature dozens of meetings to choose from, plus the best radical music, film and poetry to enjoy.

We hope you will join us for this not to be missed event on the Australian left calendar.

Highlights Include:

John Pilger: “an afternoon Q&A with John Pilger”

Egyptian activist Mamdouh Habashi and Lebanese socialist Bassem Chit speaking on recent events in the Middle East

American socialist Joe Allen speaking on “America today: after the elections”

Thanasis Kourkoulas from Greece on the recent youth uprising in Greece

Aboriginal activist Barbara Shaw discussing the racist land grab of the Northern Territory intervention
