Thread dedicated to the discussion of Australian politics and events.

I get that since the split the number of Australians here probably went from being counted on two hands to just one, but I figured that there should be at least a thread here that we can keep bumping.

Is the Australian left cucked?

Union membership continues to fall, and for obvious reasons; many of today's unions are run by the bourgeoise themselves, and it is basically illegal to strike. In fact unions are so scuffed in Australia that the UN is at odds with our laws on striking.

Even if Australians could properly organise would revolution even be possible? Ignoring the fact that both Labor and Liberals are pushing further right, the US has multiple military bases within the country and Australia itself is important geopolitically for the US.

Is the Australian left doomed?


burger here, why do aussies shitpost so much


The CFMMEU is pretty good but vultures in the form of the Labor party and the AWU are circling to tear it apart and absorb it. No doubt they will drag the party further into the arms of coal, carbon and mining. Militancy is being undermined at every turn, reactionary media lets out its eternal banshee screech across the country, the middle class majority is comfortably complacent, along with the new Cold War slowly ramping up in both rhetoric and action. I wouldn't say that the Australian Left is doomed, but it seems like there are bad times ahead.

>"Australia puts a considerable amount of effort into its relationship with the United States. It maintains a well-staffed, high-powered embassy in Washington. The embassy includes a Congressional Liaison Branch that arranges meetings between infuential American politicians and visiting Australian Federal and State Cabinet Ministers, Members of Parliament, and senior officals. The objective is to enable Australian leaders to meet the US President, to get the President to take the Prime Minister’s calls, to get the Foreign Minister to meet the US Secretary of State, and to get the Australian Ambassador in Washington to interact with important people in Congress, the State Department, the Defense Department and the Treasury. Australia wants a “seat at the table”— some level of participation in the Great Power’s decision-making process. It has had very little success here. Australia remains relatively unimportant in US thinking. Only 1% of the US diplomatic cables published by WikiLeaks related to Australia. Australia’s share of the world economy is not much larger. Its population is about 0.33% of the world’s total. From March 2009 to March 2019, US President Donald Trump tweeted 37,131 times, but mentioned Australia only 31 times (and only ten times after winning the Presidential election).50 For all Australia’s efforts, he pays even less attention to Australia than the U.S. State Department does."

Cancel platform Australia: Google seriously looks at pulling out its search engine

>Big tech is on a cancel binge. Now, the biggest of big tech, Google, seems to be seriously thinking of cancelling Australia through pulling all or part of its search engine from the country.

>It’s looking increasingly likely. The overnight news that Google is experimenting to see how its users behave when links to commercial news are buried deep in search results comes on top of a steady ramping up of the company’s rhetoric about the unworkability of the federal government’s proposed mandatary news bargaining code.

>When the government released draft legislation to give affect to the code in December, it looked like the fight between established media and new tech would be sorted through global talks between players like News Corp and The Guardian on the one hand and Google and Facebook on the other.

>Now? Maybe. Maybe not. Google’s rhetoric suggests it might be struggling to sell Australia’s news media on its offer to pay to publish stories in News Showcase. Publishers want to be paid for links in the search engine itself.

>That could take Google to Plan B: abandoning all or part of the Australian search market.

The row between Google and the Media of this country is heating up. I'm a bit cut over this, I know that this fight is mainly because the media monopolies are complaining that they can't bend the algorithm to their interests, and that they want to further fuck over the tech of this country (like they did with NBN). But at the same time it would be worrying to allow big tech get even bigger. What are your thoughts on this?


Fuck google. Australia can use other search engines.


In principle I support the news companies. In practice, who gives a shit, since any law forcing Google to give up money would just be used to prop up the dying shell that is News Corp.

>In a conflict, missile stocks will rapidly deplete. If Covid-19 taught us anything, it’s that we must boost domestic production in many areas, but especially the war stocks used by the Australian Defence Force.

>Just as was the case with the F-35 joint strike fighter, a joint production effort on a range of missiles gives us access to a wide range of US (and possibly European) science and technology, cements closer alliance cooperation and makes practical military sense for our forces.

>Initial investments will focus on upgrades to the next generation of weapons already in service. The thinking is also to identify options for jointly developing new weapons including a sea-launched weapon able to hit land targets at ranges of up to 1,500 kilometres, perhaps a cruise missile.

>Rather than go to government with individual missile proposals, Defence is bundling a series of weapons into the one program. Again, this makes sense. We should look to develop the ability to fire weapons from many different types of platforms, drawing on shared technology and support systems. Could this even extend to the navy thinking about using the new long-range anti-ship missile just bought for the air force? Absolutely it should.

/Aus/ pol's take on Dan?
To me he comes off as a boring Neolib typical of most of the Labor Party.
Not sure how much at fault he is for thos current situation because it seems like every state is doing this rarted hotel quarantine shit and the opposition can't seem to articulate an alternative beyond Dan bad.

Also who should I, as a Victorian vote for in the next elections? I really don't wanna vote Labor but the furthest left party on ballot seems to be Greens and they're pretty shit too. Any good left organisations here or are we doomed to Labor?


Does anyone know of any Australian socialist media that isn't Trotskyist? Every time I want a leftist perspective on something all I get is:
>Red Flag
>Marxist-Left Review
>Socialist Alliance


Dan is pretty much a pro-China Blairite who has afforded some mild benefits to the Victorian working class, but obviously he is pro-business and pro-neoliberalism just as much as any Labor minister is. Also bad on ecology.

>Also who should I, as a Victorian vote for in the next elections? I really don't wanna vote Labor but the furthest left party on ballot seems to be Greens and they're pretty shit too. Any good left organisations here or are we doomed to Labor?

I don't know the answer to this question. Voting for the Greens is the closest thing you can do to a protest vote, but would you really just want anti-corruption, pro-green neoliberals? At the very least, a large portion of the union movement is connected to the Labor Party (for better or for worse). I think that one of the biggest problems for the left today is creating a genuine alternative to the Labor Party. An alternative that isn't reformist, compromising nor electoralist. But until the momentum is there idk what we can do. Go to protests, join a union, spit on an SDA representative, read Australian leftist theory, all good things to pass the time.



Think >>78653 has the most agreeable take on Andrews.

VicSocs seem like the most left-wing party participating, but really Labor and Greens are the only options.


Is "Marxism Conference 2021" worth going to? Speakers don't look that interesting.

This makes me think that Australia may genuinely need like an actual Hugo Chavez to arise and to basically cloak socialism in nationalist rheteoric while also being a tough stronk military man that you cant just shoot in the head and throw out a helicopter. Who could then basically just then rain down incremental social change at gunpoint basically.

So basically some Marxist-Blanquism secret society that manages to perform like some brilliant coup that gives them control of every lever of power all at once without giving the US a Casus Beli to just invade.

Good morning everyone

Bushfire money mystery: recovery funds withheld to fight the Election?
>No figures are publicly available for the three largest bushfire recovery funds, which account for more than 55% of the $2.73 billion the federal Coalition has promised to devastated communities. Furthermore, by the end of last year, less than half of that $2.73 billion had been spent, some $500 million less than claimed by David Littleproud, the minister in charge of the recovery effort. Is the Coalition keeping a few hundred million in its back pocket for a federal election mooted for later this year? Matt Lloyd-Cape investigates.

I'm no electoralist, but if the Labor party somehow stuff up the next election then idk where the hell Australia is heading. In between this and the Murray darling river stuff there is a troubling precedent being set - with little pushback, and soc-dems will whine and blame Murdoch and grant no responsibility to the Labor party. I bet B.A Santamaria would be proud.

Good post from the Communist Party of Australia of fb:

Shifting the blame: how a condemnation of the far right became an open attack on the left

The Australian Labor Party (ALP) put forward a Senate motion on 4th February to condemn and recognise a rising far-right in Australia. The motion made specific reference to the National Socialist Network, a far-right neo-Nazi group, as well as calling out Coalition members Craig Kelly and George Christensen for promoting several conspiracy theories related to COVID-19, vaccines and the US Capitol “coup” earlier in January.

The move would represent an important step in dealing with a growing problem that plagues Australia and countries around the world, costing many lives in the process. Of course, those of us with any insight into Australian politics will know this motion was far too good to be true. The Coalition, along with One Nation, the Centre Alliance, and independents Jacqui Lambie and Rex Patrick, had it significantly stripped and repurposed. The motion now makes no reference to the rise of the far-right, instead calling Australia “one of the most successful multicultural countries in the world” in a chauvinistic attempt to hide our severe issues with racism. All mention of Coalition members of parliament was removed, and specific reference to the contents of the dangerous far-right conspiracy theories was scrapped. Essentially all acknowledgement of the problem was taken out of the motion as a whole.

What was added is even more concerning. The motion now makes a distinct “both sides” style condemnation of extremism, arguing that the issue comes from both the far-right and the far-left. It lists anarchism and communism in the same breath as fascism, as if they have anything in common. If this is the case, where then, are these “far-left” mass shootings? Where are the “far-left” attacks on minority groups? It is easy to see that such “centrist” positions are merely used to target communists and not take responsibility for the disgusting actions they encourage. While we stand out there fighting for the rights of the downtrodden and exploited, the right commits another heinous act and calls it an issue of both sides.

During the vote for the LNP’s changes to the motion, the ALP opposed the amendments. However, when it came time to pass the amended motion, the ALP supported it, allowing it to pass without a vote. The Greens stated that, had a vote been taken, they would have voted against it.
Given the language of the initial motion, it is difficult to see how the ALP did not predict such a result in an LNP-dominated Senate. The original motion outright named Liberal politicians for their actions. For the ALP to expect any other result could only be sheer incompetence; the only alternative is that this was the intended outcome. Either way, this once again shows the ALP acting akin to a moderate wing of the LNP.

This shows an Australian right wing becoming more and more unified in their attacks on the left and the working class as a whole. It is now all the more important a task to build unity among left, working class, and progressive people, working in unity on issues held in common, and respecting differences. A divided left is not going to effectively oppose anyone but ourselves.
We must ask ourselves what it is they truly condemn when they speak of far-left extremism. Workers’ rights; anti-imperialism; climate change action? What they condemn is opposition to their capitalist lobbyists and the abusive system they uphold. It is with such actions that activities of activists become increasingly more dangerous and critical at the same time. A target is being fastened to our backs, one which justifies increasing hostilities. One which will make it easier for those with power to silence those without. One which is likely to be followed by a push for full legislation against we who fight against the capitalist system. It is in these times that we must remain firm in our opposition. The only way to overturn such repressive measures, is to ensure they do not succeed. Though they will try time and time again, our struggle will not be dulled.

> if the Labor party somehow stuff up the next election then idk where the hell Australia is heading.
imo if the next Federal and State elections go to the LNP, it'll help me inasmuch as I'll have clear direction my efforts and preparation should go towards.
I'll also potentially look at moving away from Australia for a few years OR basically "playing by their rules" (i.e. Rorting) to fund local efforts.
If enough Australians accept things as they're going, then fuck it I'll use those same rules to fight back. lmao can't wait to set up a NFP and a few offshore shell companies.



this is litteraly why ive become a left nationalist because its the only way i think we are going to be able to sway people towards further left postions.

we do however need to look at the way people like chaves fucked up in order to not have the same mistakes.



you love to see it.


>left nationalist
yikes I'm not so sure that is the best action to take, it'd be easily co-opted which is what seems to happen often enough.

i say this mostly to signal towards patriotic sentiments that i think can be really good ways to get into touch with some working people who have supplanted class consciousness with some version of national identity.

i see your concern but i dont base my nationalism around an ethnic or imperialist sentiment more so trying to create a more positive patriotism.


Hmmm. Well perhaps test it locally, like just drop hints in conversations and see what the reactions are.
wtf, how? Did they come in or some shit?


Do you work at the gallery? This is pretty vanilla considering the BLM stuff but its hits the notes which makes Facebook boomers shit themselves.


its gone well with the people i know personally but that says alot more probably about the people i know than maybe the strength of these arguments but i think i could be effective



so ill tell you the story. not going to dox myself here but ill give you the general gist.

>i go outside we haven't opened yet we still have half an hour till we do but im just out there to help people do their QR codes before hand
>first people i see are two uniformed QPS officers who come up to the doors demanding to come in and see the helmet
>no you have to sign in first and we dont open till 10
>after they sign in they proceeded to just head straight in despite me explicitly saying we arent open
>i tell them again that we arent open and they cant come in they have to wait.
>they give me some weird looks and move on they dont end up coming in.
>rest of the day tho we have the Police union representative channel 7 and a bunch of cops who park their bikes right where our entry and exit is blocking access in and out of the gallery so our boss has to come out and tell them to move.

>the rest of he day im on the phones getting calls from retired police officers and other sky news watching retards telling me we are a bunch of BLM commies who deserve to be thrown in jail and we even get a threat that someone is going to walk in and smash the glass its held behind to go and take it.

so tldr a buch of uniformed cops rock up to harass an art gallery over a dumb fucking helment thats been there already for like 4 fucking months lol


go check out Pauline hansons post about it she actually gets the location wrong and says its at the museum lol


>t…they have a veryy dangerous and demanding job!!11!

Dont worry comrades Xi will liberate you from being an american satellite state.



>Xi will liberate you from being an american satellite state.

This is mainly a LARP i roll around in my head occasionally but iv'e always imagined the idea of taking some french classes and finding a job as like a bartender in like New Caledonia or some shit since i have my RSA/RG if the libs fuck things up to much.
From there i would go HARD for the Caledonian section of the French communist party / SP / Independence party . and try to help independence efforts / based shit etc. and then I'd just keep shitposting online like "Lol so PM-Cormann just legalised 24 hour back to back shifts and banned unions?

Opposing Casualisation of Part-Time Work in Retail
>On 1 March 2021 the SDA was exposed as secretly negotiating a scheme to undermine part-time employment and part-time additional hours in retail workplaces (not including pharmacies, service stations or fast food.) The changes would mean an employer could only offer additional hours to part-time workers who agree to a special scheme which means all the additional hours are rostered each week whenever the employer wants, with no right to refuse a shift, no right to exit the scheme, no casual loading, no overtime rates and a measly 9 hour contracted base. Right now hundreds of thousands of part-time workers agree to work additional shifts that suit them – but this smashes all that. Every additional shift could be offered only to workers who agree to being forced to work any shift which gets rostered no matter their family commitments, carer commitments, study commitments or transport arrangements. This attack by SDA targets the low paid, women and the vulnerable who rely on additional hours to put food on the table and a roof over their head. If you want job security, a fair wage and the right to have control over your hours then be sure to complete our survey below.


How the fuck does the SDA still manage to trick people into thinking they give a fuck?

Music is much of the same, and I don't think this is an elitist position but there is a real emptiness there. What hauntology does to a mf


i've heard that they bribe people with pizza discounts and other shit like that. I keep on telling people that they're better off going to church and praying to God for better wages than joining the SDA


Australian shows are cheap and shit because of the government policy to have X% of locally produced shows.


But other Anon is right that there does seem to be a genuine cultural Hauntology of some sort where every show is either some 90's esque game show, A 4 da kidz like Neighbourhoods or 90210 ripoff with like extra level actors playing the main roles. etc.
I think you could honestly chalk it up to the fact that pretty much no-one but boomers and actual under-10 year old children actually bother to watch TV anymore so they've basically stopped trying and are just making it a mix of colour and noise and nostalgia.
Plus all Aus TV channels are owned by like 3 companies so theres no cultural innovation since 30% of the audience is constantly split between the three networks channels.


And also policies that say "Channels must produce and show x amount of local shows" legit produced some of the best cartoons of the 90s and early 2000s (especially coming out canada) because as part of that policy they actually supported people willing to do new things


They attempted to Epstein andrews because he tried to liberate Australia of american influence by joining the OBOR initiate.

Dishonest question from Jordies about the Prices and Incomes accord followed by a canned Labor response from Shorten. Take note lads, I don't want to be pessimistic, but there will inevitably self-styled "leftists" who full-throatedly take on this narrative.



I can't tell how much of Shanks's shtick is genuine ignorance and how much is intentionally dishonest.
TBH I think he's just a genuine dumbass.


Its hard to tell really, I'd like to think that he's smart enough to know what he's talking about (and he does have a team backing him) but he says stupid shit like how Australian communists back in the day are equivalent to the Greens today

Speaking of Australian communists, Jack Mundey's funeral happened a couple days ago so here's the livestream:


Not to be a conspiracytard but is this like the same as the "Breadtube is a CIA operation"
Like why the fuck is this guy suddenly like the ALP's main spokesman?

But he's still honestly better then "Breadtube" since he's just honest that he's a Fabian and believes in just social-democratic pragmatism and not marxism.


He's been at it a while, he made a vid that was sponsored by the ACTU back in 2016


Its natural that anyone in his position would gradually drift toward being co-opted, and becoming friends with the politicians and go soft on them

breadtube - breadtube is suspicious and pretends to be radical left while slyly promoting views which help the CIA


If there was no local content quota you would only be watching Amerilard trash.

IMO Aus TV is trash because the TV bosses only buy shows written by their friends. Almost every Austard TV show on commercial channels is about a wealthy white man living near the beach

Amerilard TV is also declined in quality so its not like removing the local quota would improve your TV experience


over time Jordies may end up joining MSM


>breadtube - breadtube is suspicious and pretends to be radical left while slyly promoting views which help the CIA
This amounts to nothing suspicious, just that the americans have a hegemonic view of history that they have successfully exported. It is a win for the CIA but it isn't suspicious that YT people have internalized the propaganda any more so than it is your mother or cousin might have internalized Murdochs social conservative and anti-left values.


>mericans have a hegemonic view of history that they have successfully exported

Without peoples minds being filled with spooks and beamed with propaganda 24/7 and being introduced to something more "material" that like "overcomes" that, these are the only people who ever would support Libs THAT IS their entire vooting base.

Not quite sure but the deposition of PM Manasseh Sogavare does smell a bit fishy
>"On 7 November 2017, seventeen members of his Democratic Coalition for Change voted against him in another motion of no-confidence. The lawmaker who submitted the motion of no confidence, Derek Sikua, claimed that Sogavere had lost touch with reality and become fixated on conspiracy theories, while Sogavere attributed the defections to a proposed anti-graft bill, saying that some MPs were afraid it would lead to them being imprisoned. Sogavere remained as Acting Prime Minister until Rick Houenipwela was elected on 15 November 2017."

And then he was re-elected in 2019

I would probably need more info but it make sense. pro-china pm deposed in 2017 because he was indulging in "conspiracy theories" -> Huawei deal scrapped 2018

US neo-Nazi group recruits young Australians, secret recordings reveal

>American white supremacist group, The Base, which encourages the collapse of liberal democratic governments, is recruiting neo-Nazis in Australia and has appointed a local leader who planned to launch a propaganda campaign in front of Federal Parliament House.

>A cache of leaked audio recordings and internal files gives an unprecedented insight into the white supremacist group’s nascent Australian operation. The recordings are of interviews in which local applicants are vetted for membership, and they include at least three men expressing support for the New Zealand mosque massacres.

>The Australians who have attempted to join The Base include former federal One Nation candidate Dean Smith and Grant Fuller, a self-professed leader of The Lads Society, one of the country’s biggest neo-Nazi groups.

>In the United States, several members of The Base have been arrested by the FBI for plotting acts of violence or vandalising synagogues, while the group has been proscribed in Canada as a terrorist organisation.


ik the base was spooking everyone out but did they ever actually do anything or was it entirely larp?

nothing apart from some vandalism it seems:


The Base is an FBI operation, They encouraged a bunch of their retarded members to show up to a rally in like virginia or whatever with pipe-bombs and guns and arrested all of them.
If they have the organisation + resources to operate in aus as well that just means its probably literally a FIVE EYES / ASIO-FBI coordinated entrapment basically

“I Was Just Following Orders,” Says Daytime Sky News Employee At The 2056 Bundaberg Trials

Kino Betoota post

>At the conclusion of the Australian Civil War in 2055, the Bundaberg Trials were conducted in part with the cooperation between the Free Australian State, their allies and the UN International Court of Justice.

>The conflict, which began in 2049 when the 89-year-old West Australian President Troy Buswell ordered the extra-judicial killing of Eastern loyalists in a camp close to the Northern Territory border, triggered a domino of separatist movements that saw Australia fracture into dozens of semi-autonomous regions and states.
>Hundreds of thousands of Australians died in the war and with the invention of time travel in 2053, reporting on the conflict in contemporary journalism has been made possible.
>It lasted until the surrender of the last Commonwealth separatists in the Snowy Mountains, led by Sydney warlord Jack Vidgen who himself was convicted and sentenced to death for the brutal extra-judicial killing of Lime Cordiale during the 2054 Battle of Careel Bay.
>Prosecutors have argued, however, that the roots of conflict can be traced back to the campaign of disinformation led by Sky News during the housing bubble bursting in 2023.
>In response to that, all living employees of Sky News were arrested in 2055 and placed under a house arrest until trial.
>One of them being Hunter Coulder, who worked as a Sky News business presenter in 2030.
>“I was only following my orders,” he told the court.
>“We had a job to do and if I didn’t do it. I’d be fired. I had a mortgage to pay, the employment rate was nearly 25%,”
>“I was only doing what I was told to do.”
>Hunter was found guilty of high treason and ordered to spend 30 years in the Norfolk Island Re-Education Zone.

Lel, "Voot Labor no mater wat" tards coping and seething that our Angloid caste of politicans are all filth that deserve wall.


The only reason the media has suddenly stopped treating Scott Morrison like "Everyones heckin daggy dad!" and he's now suddenly just a bumbling Nincompoop retard who should be spill motioned is obviously not because of this 'womens rights' shit or a guy jerking off in parliament.

Its probably exactly the same as the fall of turnbull which is just theres some sort of bill that the collective Australian porky either wants passed or wants to kill (Which the general public may not even know of its existence yet) but because the Libs have informally splintered into so many little cliques and factions its basically impossible for Morrison to wrangle enough voots since if he gets Clique leader A and his 5 MP's who are like lunch mates with him to voot for something Clique leader B with his 6 MP's just sperg out and threaten to go the crossbench and he's right back where he started.


Jordies is huffing the hopium and saying that Murdoch will side with Albo lol


I hate that so much when he says that. The entire reason why "Murdoch sided with Hawke and keating" and "He may side with Albo! Poggers! epic!" is not because fucking "Oh the Libs are just so fucking bad even Murdoch wants to save himself from being associated with them"
Its because Hawke, Keating and fucking Albo are like the most Blairoid people in the entire fucking ALP. Hawke literally went out his way to fuck member owned and cooperative business's while pretending to be this union-heavy far leftist.
There was literally a segment at the ALP conference a week back where it was like "WOW KEIR STARMER AND JUSTIN TRUDEAU SENDING REGARDS TO THE ALP??? POGGERS!!!"

Like i side the only reason the media ever turns against the Lib-Nats is when one of their leaders is literally just not viable to run government anymore and they need an excuse to get rid of him (Like they cant just spill motion him for literally NO reason and they CANT have the embarrassment of him trying to get like the yearly spending bill passed it failing and him getting no confidence motioned and like Sky News having to announce to rural/queensland retard australia "The Lib-Nats have collapsed and the nation is now doomed to be run by the Labor-Greenie communist chinese. Australia is lost. we have failed…")


He really is just a propogandist, that's it. But people treat him as the sole political theorist in Australia.

Also something that really gets me is when people blame murdoch for everything, he is the almighty scapegoat in this country for the left. Not even Fox news cops the amount of political blame that Newscorp does in this country.


>Also something that really gets me is when people blame murdoch for everything, he is the almighty scapegoat in this country for the left. Not even Fox news cops the amount of political blame that Newscorp does in this country.
This is hitting the nail on the head.
Like if your dealing with someone's who's like actually fucked up enough they voluntarily spend their spare time watching Sky News and reading "the Australian" articles or something then guess what! They weren't gonna voot labor anyway! Even if Rupert Murdoch was never born and Newscorp never existed they would just be reading the "Rural-Queensland-Shithole Post" published by some other porkie which would say basically the exact same things as murdoch did anyway.

I cant help thinking that Labor stans / loyalists have a genuine persecution complex where they think the only reason they dont total majority's every election is because of this gigantic deep-state'esque conspiracy against them involving everyone from Rupert Murdoch to the Lib-Nats to the fucking Greens etc

>Boomerbook and twitter retards.

Glady's! dump him! dont trust him!

Socialist Alliance - are quite chill and have their heads screwed on but (at least where I am) don't do much besides do poorly in local elections

Extinction Rebellion* - solid direct action, community / local group focus, poor theory (boomer reformist at worst, accidentally anti-capitalist at best)

CPA / ACP - absolutely dead, I'm confused as to what they think they do and why they don't just join SAlt.

*really depends where you are, here in Perth I think there's a lot of potential for good, especially over other groups.

Organise by finding popular issues in the community and getting those people together dude. Drop the commie aesthetic and talk solutions in ways that they can relate to (mass democracy, community run energy projects, etc.)

This is just true and cosy.

I've managed to get some local movement by leveraging Systemic Consensing as a way of decision making.

I can't join the local ER because it's riddled with Greens who have conniptions when any talk of development is had.

Local Labor, despite being majority Left faction, are fucking being teamed by the Fed Labor Right.

We apparently have local Syndies and AnComs but I haven't found them.

And because we're a small state fucking everyone knows everyone so that makes organising tough.


Which state would you be in anon? I know a handful across the country so I could link ya up if you want


Van Diemen's Land brudda


Shanks is a labor shill. He often approaches the point but then starts sucking hawke/keating/rudd/gillard dick. He is really frustrating because he sees through so much of the bullshit, even the sinophobia, but then lacks any critical eye for the ALP. If he could just spend some time actually reading and not being so closed minded I believe he could be a leftists, but he mindlessly adopts ALP defensive talking points.





CPA is the dead one, ACP is very active but small. Both are ML orgs, so depends on your ideological leanings if that's for you.

Neither would merge with SAlt at SAlt are Trots and useless.

To be transparent, I'm in the ACP, so biased towards them, but I'd encourage any MLs interested in organising here to join.

It's tough, as Aus is a fucked place for any sort of leftist organising and the ACP is just starting out but I joined as it was better than just sitting around forever and waiting for the left to grow on its own.


I think Australia is going to create it's own fusion of socialism, kinda socialisme sans doctrine.

Like nothing really fits well here by themselves, but it seems various fusions or at least tolerances do.


It must be nice to live in 1972.


ngl it's pretty cosy
I can unironically use the word 'sheila' and smoke near children.
