All Out to Defend the Fertility Control Clinic!

For the first time in 10 years, anti-abortionists are trying to take over the space outside the Fertility Control Clinic, which the clinic defence has successfully blocked them from. Their monthly “Rosary Parade” now marches around the block several times, directly past the clinic entrance. A group of foetus worshippers stand outside the gate, shoving their plastic effigies of “unborn babies” and a placard saying “Abortion is murder” in the faces of clinic clients and passers by.

These harassers are part of an escalated assault on abortion rights, orchestrated by the far-right movement in Australia: personhood bills in New South Wales and South Australia, the upcoming battle in Victoria’s Parliament that threatens to roll back the historic abortion reform in 2008, and a likely attack at the federal level. 2014 will be a year of fighting for reproductive freedom.

The clinic defence needs large numbers to defend the street and build a movement that will fight back. Join the clinic defence at 118 Wellington Parade, East Melbourne.

May Day Rally and March

Since 1886 May 1st has been a day of working class struggle around the world when workers and their organisations remember the sacrifices the working class has made to gain what it has and to renew the struggle to build the movement.

May Day marches in Victoria started in 1893 and continue to this day. Join the Freedom Socialist Party as we participate in a May Day rally and March organised by Australia Asia Worker Links. We’ll raise the call for what is needed to fight the Abbott Government’s attack on public services, trade unions and public sector jobs.

For more information email or phone 03-9388-0062.

May Day Rally and March

A hundred and twenty eight years ago the fight for the eight-hour day, led by anarchists and socialists, was gaining steam. It was this struggle that gave birth to May Day as an international working class day of resistance.

Today, the bosses are on the offensive with the goal of weakening unions and taking back hard won conditions. Say no! Join the Freedom Socialist Party as we participate in a May Day rally and March organised by Victorian Trades Hall Council and the Melbourne May Day Committee.

We’ll march with public sector unionists who are gearing up for an almighty fight back against the Abbott Government’s razor gang and assault on unions.
