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)

Statement from the Left Front in France on the Paris massacre (in French and English)

This is a statement by the Left Front on the terrorist attack in Paris. It supports the Communist Party aligned Confederation of General Workers (CGT) for a mobilisation of all democrats from 5 pm (about 4 am Australian time Thursday morning) in the Place de la Republique in memory of the dead and their families and friends. 35,000 attended.

A snippet: Faced with terror, we must respond with more democracy, more fraternity and tolerance.

Elections, anti-capitalism and class struggle in France

In the short term, the key problem for revolutionaries is how to relate to the workers attracted to Mélenchon, how to debate demands, joint struggles and illusions, and how to win new revolutionary activists. This debate has divided the NPA deeply. On one extreme there is the “Mélenchon ate my hamster” brigade who cannot imagine anything positive about Mélenchon’s success and flood email lists with pathetic anecdotes showing him in a bad light. On the other extreme, a significant faction of comrades is talking of breaking away from the NPA soon, to set up a less sectarian grouping.
