Giving voice to freedom fighters in the region

Over the past 27 years, Green Left Weekly has given voice to activists in the Asia-Pacific region fighting for justice and freedom and built up strong bonds of internationalist solidarity with the movements and parties they are part of.

We believe it is important that GLW continues to report on struggles in neighbouring countries from the point of view of the oppressed and exploited majority.

Australia is a junior partner in the cabal of rich, robber states that have long exploited all corners of the world and monopolised its wealth. Every time the United States launches an imperial war, Australian governments — Coalition or Labor — rush to send military forces in.

Hungary: UN slams racist government policies

Hungarian foreign minister Peter Szijjarto accused United Nations officials on September 19 of “spreading lies” with their criticism of Budapest’s anti-migration policies.

The comments came just days after new UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, and UN rights experts harshly criticised Hungary’s immigration policies.

Szijjarto told the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva that “it was obvious” the UN officials were “biased pro-migration officials”.

He insisted Hungary would “never be a country of migrants … We will never allow one single illegal migrant to enter the territory of our country.

“Hungary will remain a country of the Hungarians, which is happy and which is proud of its more than 1000-year-long history and Christian culture and traditions.”
