The Australian government eradicated free education in higher education in 1989, with the introduction of Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS). Since then, ALP and Liberal governments have been reducing funding, relying on international students fees to boost income, causualised staff, and implimented cuts to courses and staff. Come and hear about the battle against the neo-liberal agenda against education in Australia, Quebec and Chile with Susan Price, co-convenor and vice-president of the NTEU NSW branch, and Casey Thompson, student activist Sydney University.

Our government should not buy or sell military equipment to states which:
· brutally occupy or wage war against neighbouring nations · maintain illegally-acquired and undeclared nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction · carry out summary executions and collective punishment, terrorizing communities without military protection
· flout dozens of UN resolutions and international court rulings · implement apartheid policies against populations under their control
· kill peaceful human rights demonstrators and bomb refugees under UN protection

The St George and Sutherland Shire group of Amnesty International Australia will screen the film ‘Our Generation’ as part of its Homelands campaign. The National Director of ANTAR, Jacqui Phillips, has agreed to speak at the event regarding the future of remote Aboriginal communities in the NT.

Twenty years ago, in early 1991, a radical new paper was born - Green Left Weekly!

Tony Abbott's government has sent the Australian Air Force to join the USA in bombing Islamic State (IS) targets in northern Iraq and Syria, and Australian troops to "train" Iraqi army personnel for ground combat. Abbott has justified the war by pointing to the ruthless violence of IS. But its rise is a direct product of the decade of war and occupation of Iraq by the USA, carried out with Australian support. Hosted by United Against Racism & Islamophobia.
