Inside Job is a crucial film at a time of ongoing economic crisis and the new Occupy movement changing the world.

The film offers a clear picture of what is behind the global meltdown, from the deep corruption that profits few at the expense of many, to the injustice of bail outs for the corporates and pain for the homeless.

With Europe & the US in turmoil, and the Occupy movement challenging the rule "of the 1%", Inside Job helps us understand the rot in the system, in order that we can change it.

The eruption of the brutal Islamic State in the Middle East has placed the Kurdish people In Iraq, Syria and Turkey at the centre of the political stage.

The most effective opposition to the Islamic State killers has come from the revolutionary democratic wing of the Kurdish freedom movement — the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), and the People’s Protection Units and Women’s Protection Units in Rojava in northern Syria.

Discussions on the union fightback against O'Farrell's anti-worker laws; a reportback from the SA national council meeting; socialist education plans + brief update on Greece & Europe in revolt.
