In Defence Of Our Trade Unions
Over the past decades, there have been systematic attacks starting from the Prices and incomes Accord moving on to increasing bureaucracy for unions by introducing Enterprise Bargaining. The latest attack is the “Ensuring Integrity Bill”, which has not yet been legislated. However, there is a draft copy which gives us a good indication of the intention of this bill.
Imperialist Aggression Against Iran
The Australian Communist Party expresses its solidarity with the people of Iran as they face an escalation of aggression from the US and its imperialist allies. Crippling sanctions have been inflicted on the people of the country and there is now open discussion of a military invasion. The results of this type of outrage have already been witnessed in Iraq, Syria and Libya. It must not be allowed to happen in Iran.
Imperialist Attacks on Cuba & Venezuela
The people of Cuba and Venezuela have resisted to preserve their socialist revolution. Cuba repulsed one invasion and have remained ready to resist an ongoing threat of invasion. The people of Venezuela have also had to prepare for this type of eventuality. The Trump administration has coincided with more concerted efforts at “regime change” in these two developing countries.
