Refugee campaign

Print Friendly

Tony Abbott has made asylum seekers a touchstone for the success or failure of his government. The government has staked its credibility on its efforts to “stop the boats”, sending hundreds of asylum seekers to offshore detention on Nauru and Manus Island, and stopping the grant of any new refugee visas until it can re-introduce Temporary Protection Visas in mid-2014. There seems no low to which Abbott and Immigration Minister Scott Morrison will not stoop.

Who are Solidarity?

Solidarity is a socialist group with branches across Australia.
We are opposed to the madness of capitalism, which is plunging us into global recession and misery at the same time as wrecking the planet’s future. We are taking the first steps towards building an organisation that can help lead the fight for an alternative system based on mass democratic planning, in the interests of human need not profit.
