Some more news

This week on Workers Power we have First Nations artists sharing their art online, the CPSU supporting casual workers who have been shafted, Monash students organising for their rights online, a strike at Amazon, and more. And as always we'll have the scallywag of the week.
Support Geelong Regional Library staff.

Ongoing governmental scallywaggery

More stories this week showing that the government spares no thought for the workers. Including the illegal detention of Aboriginal people, a thwarted attempt to privatise the visa system, and the cutting of the notice period required before a vote on EBA changes. We also have other stories such as worldwide prison revolts, and nurses winning their pay.

The government does not care. We, the people, must help each other!

This week we have a whole bunch of stories of the government screwing over workers in response to the pandemic. Including sending pigs into remote communities without them undergoing quarantine, leaving education workers without sufficient pay, and planning to sacrifice workers for the sake of economic growth.

The workers will defeat this virus, while the rich hide in their private hospitals.

We continue from last week with even more stories showing that the working class and the employing class have nothing in common. There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are found among millions of the working people and the few, who make up the employing class, have all the good things of life. Between these two classes a struggle must go on until the workers of the world organise as a class, take possession of the means of production, abolish the wage system, and live in harmony with the Earth.
