Study group: Amid recession, reaction and rebellion — A world to win, a planet to save!

Session # 1: Capitalism: A twin-headed monster of economic and ecological crisis

Capitalism is on a downward slide. In response, the ruling elites around the world have taken aggressive measures to save their system, while the oppressed frequently come out fighting against these frontal attacks. Still the capitalists continue to maintain the upper hand. It is vital to understand both why this is the case and, importantly, what we can do to change this.

This study circle will read and discuss the recently published political perspectives adopted at the Freedom Socialist Party Convention in Los Angeles last May. We’ll explore how to build a disciplined fighting force capable of harnessing awakened resistance and winning an ecosocialist feminist future.

Everyone interested in exploring how to win a better future is most welcome. Solidarity Salon, 580 Sydney Road Brunswick

Dinner, with a vegetarian option, is served at 6:30 pm for an $8 donation. The facilitated discussion kicks off at 7 pm.

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.
