Archive for 'Occupy Australia'

This is the one percent’s ‘democracy’

Obama is speaking to the politicians of Australia’s one percent on Thursday. That day there is a demonstration against him at Federation Park outside Parliament House in Canberra at lunchtime. Be there to show your support for the Wall Street Occupiers and the protesters around the globe. And for the other members of the Occupy movement across Australia – support the 99% in struggle. Support the QANTAS workers, the Baiada picketers, the maritime workers, the public servants, the nurses, all those fighting for better wages and conditions. That is our future. That is our hope.

The criminalisation of dissent

Next time, to beat the cops back, we need thousands upon thousands of protesters. Partly that will happen when the economic crisis arrives in Australia. But partly it is the task of socialists to point out the need to build an organisation of the working class to take on the one percent and free the rest of us from our economic slavery.

It is and will be a hard road. But we are in this for the long haul. Join us in the fight for a world where all are equal and we share democratically in the wealth we as workers create.

The police are not on our side

The reality is that police forces around the world help perpetuate the greatest crime possible: maintaining the murderous system of capitalism.

Re-Occupy Melbourne Rally today

The real reason we Occupy Melbourne protestors were attacked is for committing the crime of standing up for the voiceless, for demanding real change, and challenging the ruling 1% in this society.

Defend democracy! Defend Occupy Melbourne!

Today over 1000 Melbournians bravely defended the right to protest when the police shut down ‘Occupy Melbourne’. Tomorrow we want the mother of all marches! 12pm at Fed Square. Let’s show the 1% that our support goes deeper than they can imagine! We are the 99%.

Rally in solidarity with Occupy Melbourne and against the power of global capitalism

A large number of police today smashed up Occupy Melbourne Rally in solidarity with Occupy Melbourne and against the power of global capitalism 12:30 Saturday 22 October Petrie Plaza

Demands of ruled not met by rulers

Certainly the reported turnout in Madrid of 500,000 protestors, in Times Square of up to 100,000 and in Santiago of 60,000 shows widespread anger about the inability of the system to deliver benefits to all, not just to those who own capital.

The promise of Occupy

Whatever happens from this point, Occupy has already changed the reference points of U.S. politics. No longer can the hateful, corporate-funded Tea Party claim to speak for the disgruntled majority. Working people are finding their own political voice–and they’ll no longer keep silent.

That’s why it’s so important that everyone who supports the Occupy movement get actively involved–and build the fightback.

Yes, we the 99% can

If the necessity for a democratic society to run production to satisfy human need becomes clearer, then the very real possibility of addressing inequality and corporate greed can arise, not through the chimera of capitalist ‘reform’ but through the reality of revolution.

Occupy everywhere! Anti-corporate movement reaches Australia

If you are tired of the growing inequality, the constant refugee bashing, the bankruptcy of the major parties, the racism, the lies, the wars, the hypocrisy, or any other rotten thing that this system dishes out on a daily basis, come on down – join the occupation!
