Covid19

Aged residents in care are dying at alarming rates from COVID-19, while the Prime Minister wastes precious time trying to convince us that the system is not in crisis.

Labour shortages give unions a stronger bargaining position. We need to argue against racist and nationalistic tropes that migrant workers steal Australians’ jobs, while defending workplace safety, wages and conditions.

The new exemptions to Public Health Orders which can force sick workers to work represent a serious attack on workers' rights and their health and safety. Workers and our unions need to draw a line.

Not everyone who has attended the so-called “Freedom” protests is right wing, but the protests themselves are right wing and so are the organisers.

Sue Bolton: Pro-union, pro-vax, anti-fascist

These two resolutions lay out Socialist Alliance's position on some of the current issues related to dealing with COVID-19.

No cuts to diaster payments

Socialist Alliance candidate, Sue Bolton, has condemned the Federal Government's announcement to phase out the COVID-19 Disaster Payment once 70% and 80% vaccination targets are reached.

It’s obvious that the corporate-profits-first logic is incapable of dealing with the challenge of COVID-19 efficiently or fairly.

Lockdown requires income support

Even though different state governments are taking slightly different approaches, the reason for this debate is that governments — state and federal — are making corporate interests a higher priority than people’s health.

Police have been deployed en masse to South West Sydney.

The aggressive police operation to “combat” the COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney’s South West is yet another example of politicians’ racist, anti-working class and punitive handling of the pandemic.

The Socialist Alliance has some clear, specific solutions for addressing the triple crisis facing regional Australia as set out in this COVID recovery plan.

The federal government’s decision to punish Australian citizens returning from India should be a warning to all that the ruling class does not care about ordinary people — neither in Australia nor India.
