Energy

We can’t rely on the fossil fools in parliament. It is going to take people power to stop Adani once and for all, and to move to a safe climate future.

For the fifth time since their election in September last year, thousands of Australians will take to the streets in protest against Tony Abbott Coalition's government.

While Phelps is no candidate of the left, her victory is a huge morale boost for those movements that have been fighting against the Coalition government.

And so it begins — an offensive, on behalf of the Australian ruling class and corporate interests, to steal the future from the majority of Australians, to dismantle what remains of our social welfare system, in order to carry out, in the words of Treasurer Joe Hockey, "the government's solemn duty ... to build a stronger Australia".

The disastrous Adani mine project illustrates why the entire mining and energy sector should be brought into public hands and dangerous fossil fuels rapidly phased out in favour of renewable energy.

The internal rifts inside the Liberal Party means the task of building a stronger socialist left in this country is even more urgent.

The University of Queensland Resistance Club has joined with other student clubs to call on the university administration to divest money from fossil fuels.

Socialist Alliance is running in the Queensland elections to help build an anti-capitalist current in Queensland and national politics.

Far from being too radical, Labor’s shift to the left was too little too late, incomplete and sometimes more rhetoric than substance.

The mining industry in Australia has boomed from about 4% of GDP in 2004 to about 9% today. Mining exports in the year to March last year were worth $155 billion, or 53% of Australia's total exports.
