My 16 March Razor Sharp interview

This is the link to my 30 minute 13 March interview on Razor Sharp with Sharon Firebrace. We discuss the attempts to drive Aboriginal people in Western Australian off their land and out of their communities. This is genocide. You may get the sense I am pretty angry about this.

In defence of Socialist Alternative against Zionist untruths, again

These latest Zionist untruths are a backhanded compliment to Socialist Alternative because fake leftists and Labor apparatchiks like Peter Baldwin know in the long run such revolutionary groups are attracting young idealists who want to change the world and who see through the lies of Zionism. This is very different to the Labor Party which attracts at best a few young careerists and hacks or turns the few idealists the Party does attract into careerists and hacks in a short period of time. Being rabidly pro-Zionist is almost a right of passage to greater things in the ALP.

As Omar Hassan in an article in Red Flag called Zionist students use lies, abuse to silence Palestinian solidarity activists wrote in August 2014:

There is evidence to indicate that this behaviour is a conscious strategy to undermine [Palestinian] solidarity activism on campuses.

Exactly, and the lie that Socialist Alternative organised this 11 March Sydney University ‘riot’, ‘violent protest’, in other words peaceful demonstration by the protestors, is just another untruth for that purpose.

The CFMEU shows unions can and must defend workers on 457 visas

This is a report from the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Engineering Union page. It shows that unions can stand up for all workers, including those on 457 visas. Unions can win proper wages and conditions for 457 visa workers and in doing that also help stop the bosses undermining others workers’ pay and conditions. Great work from the CFMEU.
