A statement to the media from Radical Women, the Freedom Socialist Party’s sister organization. Message: Don’t mourn, organize!
By the end of 2021, a far right disguised as a “freedom movement” was on the rise in Australia. The movement preys on people’s fears and their justifiable anger at governments’ pro-business, law-and-order measures, which have caused intolerable misery for workers and marginalised communities.
Despite a history of publicly funded childcare, today’s parents and kids are offered empty promises instead of actual aid.
Caring for one another is the answer. Humans are not born selfish. It’s past time to fight for a society of collaboration, not competition.
Here’s a hint: “The world’s 10 richest men have more than doubled their wealth during the pandemic, to $1.5 trillion.”
We must stand against those stealing the lands and resources of First Nations people across the globe and imposing cultural genocide through forced assimilation.

The far right is on the attack, allegedly against dictatorial governments. But its actual targets have been unions, the Left and selected small businesses.
Whichever party wins the upcoming election, the way for workers to win is through rebuilding a fighting union movement, organising in their own class interests.
The Freedom Socialist Party and Radical Women in Australia argue for a mutual defence by unions, the Left and community groups against the rising right.
