Report on protest against the draconian laws in Sydney

Thousands took the streets in Sydney

An estimated 2000 protesters took to Sydney’s streets in Saturday 5 November to express their concerns about the anti-liberty laws.

There is widespread unease among Government backbenchers and civil libertarians. These orders will be imposed for no crime, control people and prevent people from speaking out or participating in their normal day-to-day activities. The backbench committee and Attorney-General were at loggerheads over issues of no principle in the laws.

Thousands of people protested their concerns yesterday that new draconian Anti-Terror laws which are an attack on dissent, not fit for a dog and any new sedition laws would strangle freedom of speech and target innocent people.

Under the provisions, jail terms could be imposed on people seen to oppose violence, protest illegal and degrading wars, or incite ill will against Australia’s involvement in criminal activities like the war on Iraq, where over 100,000 innocent men, women and children were killed, maimed or tortured.

An estimated 2000 protesters took to Sydney’s streets in Saturday 5 November to express their concerns about the anti-liberty laws.

Similar rallies were held in capital cities across the country as civil rights groups and Islamic leaders gathered to protest against the legislation.

The whole anti-liberty package should be dumped as another HoWARd crime against humanity. The anti-terrorism legislation, which will give police and intelligence authorities unprecedented powers, was introduced into Parliament last week.

When hoWARd played his terror card last week the only way he could continue to validate the serious alarm and affront he imposed on the people was to have frontline intelligence officers and pro-government media giants prop up to argue that the government had breached the security act.

But this was only to help cover up hoWARd’s lie. Then low and behold a former Australian Security Intelligence Service agent Warren Reed said state-based police and intelligence officers involved in covert surveillance of suspected terrorists feared their targets would now go underground.

Reed played right into hoWARd’s hands ‘or the other way around more like it’ appearing to validate the notion that Australia had faced a ‘real threat’ when hoWARd announce the fear.

But this was just more propaganda and their fears that the ‘targets’ would now go underground was like ‘fantom of the opera’, but in a long, long list of lies this was just another blatant lie by the hoWARd dictatorship because no one is able to get to the truth, because it’s another secret.

The propaganda message from inside the intelligence system, especially on the front line at the state level, is that hoWARd’s terror scare had some validity.

In reading one of your articles on the Nov. 5th demonstration in Australia, I noticed that it came across poorly because of poor English usage. If this muddled writing is representative of typical articles on this site then many can point and say "rantings of an illiterate fanatic..." and disregard the issue itself that is being discussed. A little more editing and proofreading is highly advisable to bring your communication up to top notch.

In these circumstances, the military effort in Afghanistan quickly became an occupation. All Afghan civilians were the enemy, unless they were known tools of the occupiers. And so the fighting age males were deemed fair game. Imperialist war cannot be waged justly, so the political decisions of John Howard, Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard and other Prime Ministers made the crimes of the soldiers on the ground inevitable. The soldiers named in the secret version of the report deserve to be in the dock, but so do their political masters.

textThe myths of ANZAC Day Apr 25 by Working Class United 0 comments

We are a loose network of anarchists located throughout Oceania, who aim to publish regular commentary on society and events from a libertarian communist or syndicalist perspective.

Today we publish a commentary on war and militarism to coincide with ANZAC Day, a day of war glorification in Australia and Aotearoa.

Authoritarianism is embedded not only in all experts and in dominant elites, but also in alternative social movements. Socialism failed in its praxis not as a result of persecution but as a result of its own inner contradictions.

textViolence begets terrorism, terrorism begets the State and the State begets terrorism Dez 01 by Jack Grancharoff 1 comments

People have to seriously look at the historical role of the State in order to grasp the functions of political and economic powers, of political parties and hierarchies to comprehend that terror is a means to dominate, to coerce, to violate and create a psychosis of fear and thus paralyse and kill any initiative for a free, independent and equal society.

imageA National Myth Apr 25 Anarkismo 0 comments

The myth of Australia’s unique military has been deployed to boost support for Australian participation in all subsequent imperialist wars. The less justification there is for the war, the more the propaganda focuses on the supposed virtues of the troops rather than the justice of the cause. While the virtues of the Anzacs were part of the propaganda for World War II, they were more prominent during the Korean and Vietnam Wars and have become the dominant theme in reporting and discussion of Australia’s participation in the imperialist wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The US-dominated world order can only be maintained by endless war. Australia, a junior partner, has signed up to this to maintain its domination of the South Pacific and Timor L’Este. The situation would not be improved by allying with China or any other would-be hegemon, because that wouldn’t change the system. The working class needs to unite internationally and abolish capitalism. Only this can build the basis for a world of liberty, equality and solidarity, where war is no more and the nation state has been abolished. We can have a new world of libertarian communism

imageThe useful dead Apr 27 Anarkismo 0 comments

The Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group opposes Australian imperialism and militarism and therefore opposes all celebrations of it. We look forward to a workers' revolution which will usher in a world community of freedom and equality for all – and where war will be seen in museums, not the news.

imageEnd War: End Capitalism Apr 25 Anarkismo 0 comments

War is integral to imperialism. We can't end war without ending imperialism and we can't end imperialism without ending capitalism, because imperialism is not merely a policy, but the set of international relationships in capitalism for over 100 years now. We don't have to send young men and women overseas to kill brown people and we don't have to allow a US base at Pine Gap to guide both nuclear missiles and drones. To change direction, though, means eliminating the capitalist system that brings us these horrors. The working class needs to unite internationally and make a revolution to abolish it. We need to replace capitalism with the only possible alternative – libertarian communism.

imageFor Peace Apr 25 1 of Anarkismo Editorial Group 0 comments

If we want peace, we must follow the example of the workers and worker-soldiers who ended WWI. We must build a working class movement which spans across frontiers and cuts the ground out from under the capitalist governments that have no solution for international problems but war. We must make a workers' revolution and overthrow capitalism. And only then will we be able to build a world of liberty, equality and solidarity – a world at peace.
