The Greens: one step forward and two steps back

The real way to win progressive change in society is through industrial action and street struggles and then through building a socialist workers’ party that reflects and fights for workers’ interests and leads the class forward, not backward.

That means putting class and struggle on the agenda as the driving force of progressive change. It means we workers taking into our own hands our own futures through our own actions, not relying on the ALP or the Greens to deliver neoliberal policies dressed up as progress.

Victory to teachers. Victory to building workers. Victory to Queensland public servants.


Fighting Labor’s anti-union laws: the ghost of Clarrie O’Shea

Under Labor’s ‘Fair’ Work laws workers can be jailed or fined for taking industrial action. Australia is still a rich person’s country.

An injury to one is an injury to all. Concerted and wide spread industrial action can smash Labor’s anti-worker ‘Fair’ Work Act and its restrictions on the right to strike.

Solidarity forever.
