Resistance

The myth of Australia as a post-sexist society prevails under Minister for Women, Tony “What the housewives of Australia need to understand as they do the ironing” Abbott.

Transgender people have always existed. Brotherboys and Sistergirls were a part of Aboriginal Australian cultures reaching back tens of thousands of years before the British invasion.

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

Universal Basic Income (UBI) is not a new idea. But it is an idea whose time has come. It is one of the simplest, most obvious pieces of social policy imaginable: every member of a society, with no exceptions, is entitled to enough money to live on.

RYSA has started a campaign for youth, by youth, to organise those who are interested in marriage equality and the LGBTI struggle at large.

Socialist Alliance seeks to work with all activists of diverse political views, and we believe Queer Collaborations should be inclusive of students of differing political views.
