Ruby Princess

The COVID-19 pandemic and anthropogenic climate change illustrate the need to transcend the capitalist world system with an ecosocialist one, argues Hans Baer.

A special inquiry into the Ruby Princess debacle has found authorities made “serious mistakes”, some even “inexcusable”. However, as Jim McIlroy reports, it did not recommend any action be taken against them.

Maritime Union of Australia Victorian branch deputy secretary David Ball speaks about the difficulties of keeping workers’ working and safe during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Ruby Princess crew members are still aboard the virus-ridden ship, reports Jim McIlroy, but the Maritime Union of Australia is fighting for their rights.

The whole crew of the Ruby Princess need to be tested for COVID-19, and a huge dose of sunshine needs to be shone on the events and parties involved in this disaster, writes Arthur Rorris.
