In the USA, people are getting fed up with the government and corporations screwing them over. In response, a small group set out to squat on Wall Street. Barred from that, they have occupied a nearby park. At first only a few hundred, the occupation hasn't disbanded, and has been growing. Now, other cities in other states have joined in. Hell, even Glasgow, in Scotland has!
But here in Australia we have out own shit to deal with, and our own demands. In NSW the state government has just fucked over public sector workers, and we can be sure they will try to push the same industrial relations reforms on private sector workers. At the same time, the federal Labor government, which won power from John Howard back in 2007 based on complete and utter revulsion at the Coalition's WorkChoices reforms, only tinkered around the edges, with the result being dubbed 'WorkChoices lite' by workers around the country. Not stopping there in its disregard for Australian workers, the ABCC, the anti-union police, have not been removed from office or stripped of their ASIO powers. Homosexual marriage is still denied by the ALP, despite having a gay cabinet minister, Penny Wong, who's partner has recently given birth to their first child. Not content with the barbarism of the Howard Government's refugee policy, the ALP has made it even more cruel, even seeking to deport refugees to Malaysia. Our list of grievances is damn near endless!
