Branch meeting – From #MeToo revelations to finding remedies: What will it take to end sexual harassment?
A global tsunami of truth-telling about sexual harassment is shaking empires from Hollywood to the Australian music industry and Melbourne City Council. While welcome, the stories exposed by the MeToo hashtag rarely consider the cause or the solutions. This discussion will examine the systemic power imbalances of gender, race, and class, explore what fuels sexual assault and champion those resisting. Share your thoughts on what’s needed to stop this widespread exploitation.
The meeting will also discuss highlights from the FSP’s current mass movement organising and how you can work with us.
Dinner will be served at 6:30 pm for a $10 donation, and the discussion begins at 7 pm.
Location: Solidarity Salon
If this is democracy, why do we feel insecure, ignored and powerless? Join in this timely study of U.S. Marxist writer George Novack’s Democracy & Revolution.
Novack traces democracy’s 2,500-year evolution, from its roots in ancient Greece and rise through revolutionary upsurges to its decline in modern capitalism. We’ll also explore the democracy a workers’ socialist revolution could achieve.
We’ll meet alternate Wednesdays, re-commencing 17 January.
Democracy & Revolution is available for $28 at Solidarity Salon.
Dinner will be served at 6:30 pm for a $10 donation.
Location: Solidarity Salon (address and travel information is above).

The Freedom Socialist Party will join tens of thousands of people across the country for the annual Palm Sunday March for Justice for Refugees.
We have endorsed this rally which protests the Australian Government’s ongoing punishment of people seeking protection in Australia.
Our joint contingent will oppose the deeply racist dehumanisation of asylum-seekers. We’ll highlight it’s also sexist: 80 percent of refugees are women and children. The movement must address the tragic conditions that create refugees. Most are fleeing war or persecution. People escaping bloodshed and death are excluded, but big corporates are welcome. Capital is truly global, recognising no borders in its search for the cheapest labour and the greatest profits. Workers and the poor should have the same freedom of movement.
