Open letter to the ACF and Labor

Oceania Indymedia - Sat, 2009/09/26 - 4:51am
From the newswire: Racism can't win climate justice - Population is not to blame for climate change. We are shocked and angered that the ACF has supported Labor MP Kelvin Thompson's calls to cut Australia's migration rates. These proposals pander to racism and offer no solution to environmental degradation. They divert attention away from the real cause of environmental disaster - government inaction and corporate polluters. Population is not cause of pollution and carbon emissions. In Australia, current total household electricity usage is around 12% of total electricity usage. Over 80% of

No tax cuts, no pay rise! Working people pay the price

Oceania Indymedia - Wed, 2009/09/16 - 12:48am
With the Government forcing a pay freeze on the public sector, minimum wage workers will likely be offered nothing when the Government reviews their pay at the end of the year. The National Party promised tax cuts and rising wages but so far has delivered less than nothing for low wage workers. Each week hundreds of workers are heading out into the street calling for wage increases that meet the rising cost of living, job security and protection from redundancy. They are being met by the neo-liberal corporate class and their lackeys in the state services that wants nothing more than to crush

From the newswire: September 12, 2009 - Hundreds of protesters are converging on the Hazelwood coal power station in Latrobe Valley, Victoria this weekend for the Switch off Hazelwood protest. Community members involved in the peaceful protest are concerned they may be used as a vehicle for politicians to push laws to limit public right to protest.
