• Vale Tom Uren

    Tom Uren 1922-2015: a great humanitarian – and wonderful human being
    Vale Tom Uren – a great champion of social justice, the environment and a peaceful and non-violent world. He was also a great internationalist and would have been excited in his unsectarian way by the Syriza victory in Greece. And let’s not forget that – for all his pacificism – Tom also knew how to fight: he took on (and beat) the Fairfax and Murdoch media organisations back in the 1960s when they they hurt him with the anti-communist slanders of the time. He was also one of the indispensables in the anti-Vietnam War movement. And a great minister in the Whitlam government.

  • Greens label Pyne’s latest thought bubble a desperate face-saving measure

    The Australian Greens say the latest iteration of the Abbott/Pyne higher education Bill is a face saving measure designed to save the Prime Minister’s political skin and have called on the Government to take their proposal for higher student fees to an election.

    “The Coalition’s latest desperate gambit, the reduction of funding cuts in order to shepherd through fee deregulation, already looks to have failed with the Greens, Labor and crossbenchers remaining firmly opposed to increasing student fees,” said Greens spokesperson for higher education Senator Lee Rhiannon.
