Show your opposition to school league tables and demand that our State and Federal representatives do their job and protect students from the harm they cause. RALLY outside the office of Verity Firth MP, NSW Minister For Education, 112 Glebe Point Rd, Glebe. Community march to the office of Tanya Plibersek MP,

The fight for climate justice : Report back from Bolivia climate summit

In late April, around 20,000 climate change and indigenous rights activists from around the world attended the World People’s Summit on Climate Change hosted by Bolivia’s radical government.
The conference, a grassroots alternative to the failed Copenhagen summit, was a pivotal event in the fight against global warming.
It discussed the important topics the rich countries try to ignore such as climate debt, climate refugees, problems with existing market-based solutions, and the structural causes of climate change.
