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)

Oh what a f****d feeling Toyota

The mass sackings at Toyota show yet again the absolute bankruptcy of capitalism as a way to organise production. They also show the need to fight for jobs, to follow the lead of the Baiada poultry workers and strike and picket and if needed go that extra step and occupy the workplace to win.

Is real change coming?

Having socialists involved in the struggles of the day, socialists with an understanding of the tasks necessary to win a better world here and now and into the future and coalescing around common ideas about socialism and democracy is an important part of the ultimate success of the liberationist project.

Poultry workers hold off riot police attack

If the workers are going to win, there needs to be a substantial union and community mobilisation in their support – starting now. Everyone who supports union rights needs to get down to the picket line (the factory is in Pipe St, Laverton, just off the Westgate Freeway). There has already been substantial community support for this strike, but it needs to be stepped up dramatically. If the strike is to win we need hundreds of people defending these picket lines 24 hours a day.
