Tensions are rising in Asia and the Middle East as the US intensifies threats and force to maintain its control of markets, resources and energy routes in these regions. The spectre of nuclear conflict looms large once more.  more ...

At the crossroads

Human civilisation is at a crossroads as future life on the planet is threatened. Humanity must reduce net emissions of greenhouse gases to ZERO by 2050 if we are to have a chance to limit global warming and to save the world for future generations!  more ...

It is Class War!

Everything is about class struggle. When the government tells us that cutting penalty rates will create jobs, everybody knows that it is not true, it is class struggle.  more ...

Open letter calls on Wyatt to stop the Intervention

Twelve years ago, the Northern Territory Intervention was announced by former Prime Minister John Howard, in response to the Little Children are Sacred report. Without any warning or consultation, 600 Australian Defence Force personnel entered 73 remote communities in an act described as “damaging” and “disastrous” by journalist and filmmaker, Jeff McMullen.  more ...

Lies and broken promises

Prior to the 2007 NSW State election, the NSW Labor government supported mining wherever mining companies wanted to dig. Nevertheless, Labor, just like the Libs, had no long-term plans to ensure continued jobs for mine-workers despite the obvious growth in the realisation that the use of coal was a serious threat to the future of the environment, possibly even a threat to the future of life on Earth!   more ...

Support Julian Assange

The definition of a whistle-blower is: a person who exposes any kind of information or activity that is deemed illegal, unethical, or not correct within an organisation that is either private or public.

Stop the war on journalism

On July 3, at 43 Below in Perth, the Communist Party of Australia held a Politics in the Pub calling for an end to the war on journalism. This was following the Federal Police (AFP) raids on the ABC headquarters and the home of a News Ltd journalist. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange had just been removed from the Ecuadorian Embassy where he had sought refuge for seven years.  more ...

Stop the Intervention

21st June 2019 marks 12 years since the start of the Northern Territory Intervention (now called Stronger Futures). Although Aboriginal people have become conditioned to the detrimental impacts of those racist laws, the trauma is deeply entrenched and continues.  more ...

Travel to Cuba; don’t let the blockade stop you

We, the members of the US-Cuba Friendshipment organised by Pastors for Peace (PfP), had just committed civil disobedience, having openly defied a travel ban that carries the potential penalties of ten years in prison and a quarter-million-dollar fine, publicly refusing to apply for a license, even refusing one when it was offered in a previous year.  more ...

Climate change and burying your head in the sand

Only someone who is particularly thick can have failed to realise that the boss class and their wealthy mates have decided to ramp up their never-ending war against the workers. They are attacking economically, diplomatically and even militarily any and all governments around the world that are – or are even considering – pursuing policies that might be considered inimical to the interests of big business.  more ...

Keep the tricolour if you want to as the symbol of our nationality.
