The recently held founding meeting of a new refugee action group in South Australia was a great success, with a strong turnout and lots of enthusiasm about campaigning for refugee rights in our state.

Come along to the next meeting to keep up the momentum, clarify some of the finer details and start planning some actions.

We want you to join us in building a democratic, inclusive and broad group to organise ongoing grassroots political action around refugee rights.

Socialist Alliance Branch meeting. "The French Revolt"

Sat Nov 6, 2pm, Activist Centre, Level 2, 95 Currie St, Adelaide

In one week in late October, French workers held 3 national strikes involving 3 - 3.5 million workers in each. Students are occupying high schools and universties, oil depots blockaded, and some industries are on indefinite strike, as the French people resist being made to pay for capitalism's crisis. Come and discuss this exciting development and lessons for the anti-capitalism movements in Adelaide and around the globe

Cathy Come Home, by Ken Loach, director of I, Daniel Blake, follows a young couple in the UK in 1960s.

Cathy and Reg deal with sudden unemployment, lack of affordable housing, extremely inadequate welfare payments, and rigid, underfunded support services.

It is the story of how poor people experience judgement and punishment for being poor, instead of dignity and justice.
