India today: COVID exposes the damage of imperialism and neoliberalism

June 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm AEST
Online (Aus) Melbourne, Australia

Freedom Socialist Party online meeting India today: COVID exposes the damage of imperialism and neoliberalism In the world’s “largest pharmacy,” the daily count of new COVID cases exceeds 400,000. Vaccine tycoons have grown rich while funeral pyres burn. Farmers continue to strike: for them, a corporate takeover of food production is a sure death sentence. Prime Minister Modi, and investors’ champion, denies there’s a crisis. This discussion will look beyond news reports to sources of the misery and the resistance,…

Freedom Socialist Party Online meeting: How to end the Zionist genocide in Palestine

July 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm AEST
Online (Aus) Melbourne, Australia

The settler state of Israel is an imperialist creation aimed from the start at preventing Arab revolution. Zionism, a false claim of nationhood, is used to excuse the daily terror, which has rained down on Palestinians for over a century. As always, the aggressor portrays itself as victim, while the victims fight back with whatever tools are at hand. International solidarity to end the slaughter is growing, including actions that are strengthening the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. This discussion…

Imagine an education system that is free – Let’s talk about how to make it real!

August 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm AEST
Online (Aus) Melbourne, Australia

Freedom Socialist Party online meeting The COVID-19 pandemic has desecrated the lives of workers, students and teachers across the globe. When the pandemic hit Australia universities panicked, slashing staff to compensate for the staggering loss of revenue. As the crisis lingers, chancellors continue their offensive while the Coalition government shifts the burden onto students. How did we move from a country with free education in the 1970s to the tyranny of neoliberalism with its casualised workforce and universities run as…

Radical Women Petition Launch: Winning the vaccination race means putting the needs of people before profits

September 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT
Online (Aus) Melbourne, Australia

The race to vaccinate has finally begun. But only after the Delta variant bolted. With infections and deaths rising, federal and state governments are using inadequate vaccination targets to justify the reopening of business — and pitting vaccinated against unvaccinated achieve this. The New South Wales scientist group, OzSage, is warning that to reopen at 80% would overwhelm the state’s intensive care units. People’s safety trails behind profit in this race. This online petition, initiated by Radical Women, demands federal,…

The inspiring global fight for reproductive justice

November 7 @ 4:00 pm AEDT
Online (Aus) Melbourne, Australia

The far right is closing in on abortion rights. In the U.S., a 1973 Supreme Court decision, which legalised abortion nationwide, could soon be overturned by the same, now conservative-stacked court. In Australia, a federal “religious freedom” bill would seriously undermine women’s reproductive choices, as well as legitimise discrimination against minority groups. This gathering features a video from a recent forum, hosted by Radical Women U.S., where international speakers told how women in Ireland and Argentina won legal abortion and…

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until December 1, 2021

Online (Aus) Melbourne, Australia

Anarchists and Marxists both want to send the capitalist system to the grave. Both want a stateless and classless society. But Marxists and anarchists have very different views about how to get there. There’s vast difference on questions of leadership, methods of organising and tactics to use to achieve these goals. This seven-session study circle will examine Marxism and anarchism in theory and practice from the 19th century to today. Starts 7 pm, Wednesday, 8 September and then every second…
