Steve O'Brien writes on the legacy of the Russian Revolution in the Newcastle Herald.

Is action by unions just an attempt to stir up class conflict — the politics of envy — as conservative politicians would have us believe?

Union leaderships are still falling in behind the Australian Council of Trade Unions’ “re-elect Labour at all costs” strategy, which effectively ignores the seismic shift in public opinion around needing to take action on climate change. The planet, and communities being affected by climate change now, cannot wait while Anthony Albanese and the Australian Labor Party get their act together.
