                On May 18 – Vote 1 for Workers’ Rights

                The federal election, to be held on May 18, is shaping up to be the most important in recent times. It is imperative that the Coalition government is thrown out and that extreme-right parties and conservative independents are defeated. There is a great deal of disillusionment with the major parties and their failure to address the important and pressing issues of the day and govern in the interests of the people.  more ...

                Editorial – Cruel and brutal cover

                For at least 40,000 years Indigenous people lived on this continent, owning, caring for and being sustained by the land. With their deep knowledge of nature and respect for the environment in which they lived, they developed a successful economy and a rich spiritual and cultural life.  more ...

                Central Committee Statement

                On the weekend of April 13-14 2019, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Australia, elected a new leadership led by General Secretary Andrew Irving and National President Vinnie Molina. Comrades Liz Hulm & David Matters have been elected as Assistant Secretaries and comrade Elias Alevizos elected as Vice-President.  more ...

                People with disability

                People with disability, their organisations and supporters have called for two Commissioners to step down from their roles with the newly announced Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability, and for stronger provisions for all Commissioners about real, perceived and potential conflicts of interest.  more ...

                The real reason for the arrest of Assange

                Last Thursday London police dragged Australian journalist Julian Assange, dishevelled, sick and prematurely aged, out of the Ecuadorian embassy where he had been granted asylum for almost seven years. He was taken to court and immediately convicted of having previously failed to surrender to the court regarding an extradition order.  more ...

                The system is broken

                In Perth over 1,500 trade unionists and their supporters turned up at the front of the State Parliament as part of the national campaign to Change the Government as a way of Changing the Rules of the industrial relations system.  more ...

                On your Marx

                Marxism is often claimed to be a science. And socialism – the goal and the struggle to achieve it – based on Marxism is sometimes claimed to be “scientific socialism.”  more ...

                The war on Assange

                The failure on the part of establishment media to defend Julian Assange, who has been trapped in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since 2012, has been denied communication with the outside world and appears to be facing imminent expulsion and arrest, is astonishing. The extradition of the publisher – the maniacal goal of the US government – would set a legal precedent that would criminalise any journalistic oversight or investigation of the corporate state.  more ...

                “Immoral, reckless and illegal”

                The Venezuela situation remains dangerous and volatile, but opposition to the Trump administration’s bullying “regime change” efforts in that country may be growing in the United States.  more ...

                On the rise of the right

                BRITAIN: With the growing popularity of figureheads like Tommy Robinson, the rapid expansion of far-right movements like Generation Identity, and white supremacist attacks such as the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting and the Christchurch massacre stacking up, the threat of the fascist right has never felt so immediate.  more ...

                The Twilight Zone

                The anthology television series, The Twilight Zone, first debuted in 1959. The show, hosted by screenwriter, playwright, and producer Rod Serling, used horror, fantasy, and science fiction to explore socio-political themes dealing with issues like government, racism, war, and class. It was a series that many would come to believe was ahead of its time in being unrelenting in taking on deeper problems plaguing society through its 30 minute weekly episodes.  more ...
