Black Lives Matter

Juneteenth (June 19) has finally become a national holiday in the United States. Malik Miah looks at its origins and what it represents in the struggle for Black liberation.

The attack on Critical Race Theory is the latest right-wing onslaught against "cultural Marxism" and its supposed hidden intention to destroy Western civilisation, writes Jonathan Lockhart.

Amanda Porter and Helen Corbett discuss the campaign to stop Black deaths in custody, and the significance of the Royal Commission into Aboriginal deaths in custody.

Derek Chauvin’s conviction for the murder of George Floyd is a relief, but does not change the urgent need to end policing and the corrupt criminal justice system, argues Malik Miah.

For now, the Republican Party remains Trump’s party. A mass response is the only way to stop neo-fascist, ultra-nationalist forces, argue Malik Miah and Barry Sheppard.

Recognising that the January 6 attack on the US Capitol marks a new stage in US politics is crucial to building a movement to defend Black Lives Matter and the working class, writes Malik Miah.

Suzanne James writes that until systemic racial profiling ends, Black deaths in custody will continue and the 1991 royal commission's recommendations will not be implemented.

As long as Donald Trump continues to refuse to accept the election results, the danger of a coup, legal or not, remains, writes Malik Miah.

People rallied in rain at the opening of a NSW parliamentary inquiry into Aboriginal deaths in custody, reports Peter Boyle.

More than 200 people took part in a protest against the Queensland Labor's decision to increase police funding by some $624 million.

Stolen lives on stolen land

More than 200 peopled protested the Labor government's funding increase to police, reports Alex Bainbridge.

Should the left fall behind the Biden-Harris presidential ticket to stop Trump? And will voting out Trump end Trumpism? Malik Miah explores these questions and more.

Portland’s mayor and the state's governor have not taken action to address the widely-shared grievances against law enforcement, preferring to deliver a movement deathblow aimed at protesters, writes Shamus Cooke.

Malik Miah writes the decision of the Kentucky Grand Jury to not file murder charges against two white police officers who killed Breonna Taylor shows the United States legal system is criminal, unjust and needs to be replaced.

Protests have erupted across the United States in response to the announcement that none of the police officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s death will be charged, writes Malik Miah.

The 2020 US presidential election is between Black Lives Matter, a multiracial democracy — and white supremacy, writes Malik Miah. The outcome is open, but continuing to mobilise in the streets is essential.
