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)



Counter-rallies confront the racist, anti-Muslim Reclaim Australia

Reclaim web image


James Supple from socialist group Solidarity has written an important and informative article on resisting the anti-Muslim and racist Reclaim Australia.

He says in part:

The anti-racist counter-rallies were important to confront and expose the far right that is behind Reclaim Australia. But we will need to organise larger numbers if they mobilise again.

He concludes:

The far right have called a protest against halal food in Sydney next weekend. We need to confront them wherever we can. If Reclaim Australia tries to call rallies again, we need bigger anti-racist protests supported by unions, Greens and Labor Party members. Shamefully, while ALP leader Bill Shorten said fears of sharia law were “exaggerated”, he didn’t condemn the racism of Reclaim Australia.

Most importantly, to keep the right on the run, we have to keep up the fight against Abbott — to fight his budget cuts, stop the Islamophobia, end the terror scare-mongering, free the refugees, and stop his attacks on Aboriginal rights.

Why is the left having a counter-protest against a protest against Halal food?

Slitting an animals throat while it is still conscious, hanging it upside down until it bleeds dry.

RSPCA anyone?

Because the fascists and racists are not about protecting animals; they are about attacking Muslims.

John is just a sloganeer. “Racist” and “fascist” are his favourite words – even if it is a nonsense. He throws them at anyone who disagrees with his socialist ideas – regardless.

I’d really love to see John actually come face to face with ISIS! No doubt they’d welcome him with open arms, given his strong support for Islam! Or not.
