The Changing Nature Of Protest In Australia: Historical Reflections

COVID, Capital, And The Future Of Work In Australia

What Do You Hope For In 2021?
If, as they say, growth comes from adversity, then 2020 has been formative. Yet what exactly are the lessons that we should be sifting through this year’s trauma and anxiety to find? What should be the guiding lights as we pick up the pieces with the

Well, you could do what some New South Wales Liberal Party members did in 2018 by putting up a motion at a state party conference calling for the ABC to be privatised. You might even find, as they did, that there’s a fair bit of support in the room.
