Online (Aus) Melbourne, Australia

The working class is bearing the brunt of this pandemic, and workers are responding — demanding increased protective equipment and other safety measures; fighting for paid leave and a living wage for every worker, including casuals and those on temporary visas; and resisting bosses’ escalated attacks on pay and conditions. Hear from health workers organising in New York as well as local union delegates and activists. Discuss what’s needed to prepare the union movement for militant mobilising around solutions, to…

July 29, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm AEST
Online (Aus) Melbourne, Australia

What is socialist feminism? Why is it so powerful? Unlike identity politics, which tends to divide, how is socialist feminism a unifying force? We’ll discuss this 1978 essay that Fraser co-authored with Susan Williams and apply it to the battles raging today. We’ll explore how feminism is a revolutionary question that everyone who loathes capitalism and wants a brighter future for humanity has a stake in.

Black and Indigenous Lives Matter! Transforming rage about racism, national oppression and state brutality into permanent change The cry “Black Lives Matter” is reverberating across the globe. Huge, ongoing street protest is showing that the systemic racism which led to the brutal police murder of George Floyd knows no borders. Australian protests have put attention on the epidemic of Indigenous deaths at the hands of police and prison authorities. The similarities — right down to the plea, “I can’t breathe!”…

Why increased police powers are not COVID Safe!

September 30, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm AEST
Online (Aus) Melbourne, Australia

Wednesday 30 September, 7:00 pm Online statement launch Why increased police powers are not COVID Safe! COVID-19 is a health crisis. To bring it under control, well-resourced public health measures based on science are required. Instead, we are seeing a sinister growth in police powers and selective repression of civil liberties that defy any public health logic. Arming police with new powers is also dangerous for those sections of the community traditionally subjected to over-policing. Join us for the launch…

Online discussion – U.S. elections 2020: What will it take to deliver for workers and the poor?

October 17, 2020 @ 1:00 pm AEDT
Online (Aus) Melbourne, Australia

In these times of Black-led rebellion, with pandemic, economic and environmental crises coming to a head, it’s no surprise that passions over the presidential election are running high. It is natural to want Trump, a reactionary president aspiring to dictator status, gone from the White House. But these systemic problems aren’t caused by one individual.  While the election outcome is impossible to predict, racial injustice will not go away under Biden or Trump. Neither will economic hardship and vulnerability. Nor…

Debbie Brennan will examine what is driving this trend and propose solutions. Alison Thorne, will chair the discussion and give a special tribute for World AIDS Day.

Maintain the momentum of 2020: Deaths in custody must stop — learn how!

January 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm AEDT
Online (Aus) Melbourne, Australia

When cops in the U.S. shot George Floyd it made global headlines. Yet the all too frequent deaths of First Nations people at the hands of police and prison authorities do not generate the same level of media interest and community outrage. In 2020, many more people realised how wrong this is! Multiracial crowds marched in Indigenous led protests asserting that Black and Indigenous Lives Matter. There were outpourings of solidarity as people shared, tweeted, signed petitions, donated and demanded…
