Arndt and Hanson are femicide deniers. Like climate change deniers who refuse to acknowledge the science, these two deny that the intentional killing of women is a growing problem that governments need to address.

Over 25,000 Victorians voted for the newly formed Victorian Socialists on November 24. A great result to build upon.

  We need to keep the pressure up for real solutions, on our terms, which will begin to shatter institutional sexism.

As thousands of people attended vigils around the country for Eurydice Dixon, Socialist Alliance's Sue Bolton is angry about the victim-blaming and authoritarian measures being offered up as “solutions”.

The Australian government is continuing military cooperation with the genocidal Myanmar regime, despite its attacks on Rohingya civilians.

Andrew Bolt takes me to task for being “irresponsible” for “propagandising” about the colonial invasion and subsequent massacres of First Nations people.

Sue Bolton explains that there needs to be a strong response against racism and racist scapegoating. But to really undercut right-wing populism, the left needs to put forward a political and economic alternative and fight for it.

Moreland Socialist councillor Sue Bolton explains that Centrelink staff warned management that the 'robo-debt' notices would be wrong and the new debt recovery system would incorrectly claim overpayments.

"We need to replace the whole punitive detention system with a humane, community-based refugee processing system. The opportunity to build the movement is now, and we cannot waste a moment."

The announcement on September 9 that Australia will accept only 12,000 refugees from Syria and that the government will seek to discriminate on the basis of ethnicity and religion is further proof that the government is lying about leading the world in welcoming refugees.

The official unemployment rate in Broadmeadows is 23.5% but the real unemployment and underemployment rates are far higher. Youth unemployment is higher than the overall rate. We are very close to the 30% unemployment rate of the Great Depression.

The White Ribbon is a public symbol that family violence is a problem. Women have the right to live a life free from gender-based violence. The fact that White Ribbon Day exists is a tribute to the generations of women and men who have campaigned to have family violence recognised as a crime and a serious problem in society.
