The Costa A cartoon the ‘free speech’ Australian would never publish

Costa A nails it.  

Bill Leak, The Australian and racism

My latest article in Independent Australia has just been published. To read the whole article click here to go through my blog site to the IA site. The Oz cartoonist Bill Leak sparks social media outrage for racist cartoon

The Northern Territory Right Royal Whitewash

I write in Independent Australia on Monday that ‘Turnbull’s snap decision to call a Royal Commission into juvenile detention is now looking like a complete whitewash.’ I say among other things: ‘Is there a solution? Yes, I believe there is. Our mass actions can change the world. United, we can fight back. The history of the fight for civil rights in the U.S., for basic democratic rights in South Africa, for freedom from colonialism in much of the world, shows that negotiating with the oppressor will not win change. We have to defeat those who oppress us or make the costs for them too great to go on with the old ways.’

Just another atrocity in the Northern Territory

The Don Dale abuse, while horrific, is just another atrocity to add to a long list of systemic oppression endured by Indigenous Australians, I write in Independent Australia. Let’s ask Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people what their solutions are. In among their specific suggestions will be solutions for the overall, systemic problems. A treaty. Sovereignty. Paying the rent.’ To read the whole article in Independent Australia click here. NT Detention: Just another atrocity

Details of rallies for justice and against the torture of kids

Details of Rallies for Justice this Saturday across Australia for the children tortured in Don Dale and all prisons.

Marx on divide and rule

The roots of Hansonism

Pauline Hanson is one expression of the 30 years of state Islamophobia, racism, locking up refugees, the Northern Territory intervention etc etc. We need to fight Hanson AND the Labor and Liberal policies that create the cesspit in which she and all the others like her can and do live. We need to build a mass movement.

Ban bigots, not Muslims

A mass movement can force the racist scum back under their rocks for now.

State racism and Hanson’s resurrection

I wrote in Independent Australia on Monday that Hanson’s resurgence combined with a Coalition Government and a renewed racialised right in the Reclaim Australia movement, signal dangerous times for Australian politics.

Facebook bans Aboriginal woman: Donald Trump writ small

Facebook’s ‘community standards’ are the ‘standards’ of rich white men who find women’s bodies offensive if they aren’t titillating them. The power Facebook has is overwhelming. This abuse of its power reflects the dominant ruling class paradigms of misogyny, racism and sexism. Facebook’s decision to censor a photo of traditional Aboriginal women and ban Celeste Liddle is Donald Trump writ small. Where is our Chicago in response?
