http://www.bfpg.co.uk 30-08-2021: Ever since the onset of “Covid” lockdowns, the climate crisis has been pushed off the front pages of the corporate press worldwide. The world’s ruling classes saw to it that the “health care” propaganda cover for the replacement of liberal democracy with fascism took and held centre stage for 18 months. Now, with the approaching COP26 (Conference of the Parties, part 26) summit … Continue reading COP26 and the Greenwashing of Imperialism
23-10-2020: If we were to believe the government, we are about to enter a summer which they variously refer to as “storm season”, “bushfire/flood season” or even “big weather” season – which now comes with its own TV series. Working people are supposed to believe that the droughts, bushfires and floods which devastated swathes of the country last summer is just par for the course … Continue reading Resist the Gas, Coal and Fracking Siege!
Abolish the Coronavirus Commission! 14-06-2020: The fake coronavirus pandemic has now spawned its own fake coronavirus government. Unfortunately, the entirely appointed National Covid-19 Coordination Commission (NCCC) is all too real. Unelected by anyone, and unaccountable to the federal (or any) parliament, the NCCC is yet another example of the blatant disregard for even a pretence of democracy that the ruling class exhibits from time to … Continue reading Abolish the Coronavirus Commission!
Climate Crisis: Fight for Public Ownership! 22-02-2020 – First came the fires, then came the floods. After the bushfire infernos which swept this country in December and January, Australia is now being viewed as the “canary in the coal mine” of global warming. As the driest continent on Earth, it is looking likely that Australia will experience some of the worst climate calamities due to … Continue reading Climate Crisis: Fight for Public Ownership!
Climate Catastrophe: For Class Demands! 15-01-2020 – As the global warming fueled bushfire catastrophe grinds on, working people are understandably despairing at the critical lack of leadership shown by Australia’s political elites. It may have begun with Liberal Party Prime Minister Scott Morrison (“Scomo”) taking a holiday in Hawaii when they began, but it continued soon after with the Labor Party so-called opposition leader Anthony … Continue reading
Rise Against the Climate Collapse! 20-12-2019 – The climate collapse is no longer only the content of Hollywood disaster films, but is a lived reality. Australia, the driest continent on earth, is burning alive, and Sydney is being blanketed in smoke and ash which is hazardous to human health. Last Monday, the Climate and Health Alliance released a statement declaring the smoke haze covering Sydney … Continue reading Rise Against the Climate Collapse!
XR: False Friends of a Safe Climate 15-12-2019 – Australia is on fire. During November, even before summer began, raging bushfires razed parts of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. New South Wales was the worst hit, with six people losing their lives, and over 600 homes destroyed. It is undeniable that the fires have been fueled by catastrophic conditions related to the … Continue reading XR: False Friends of a Safe Climate
XR Threaten Workers’ Democratic Rights 20-10-2019 – The Queensland Parliament’s determination to fast track laws designed to impede climate protests are potentially a dangerous precedent. Even though they are ostensibly aimed at preventing climate blockaders from using “dangerous devices”, they could quite easily be used for much more. These moves are a response to the provocations of Extinction Rebellion (XR), who have repeatedly organised actions … Continue reading XR Threaten Workers’ Democratic Rights
XR: The Faux Rebellion 07-10-2019: Extinction Rebellion (XR) are hitting the streets again, with a week of action throughout major cities in Australia – their so-called “Spring Rebellion”. We are in a climate crisis, they claim, and the time for action is now. Almost no one disagrees. Yet in reality XR are not leading a “rebellion” and they are not, in the final analysis, … Continue reading XR: The Faux Rebellion
Climate Mayhem: Capitalism Must Fall! 20-09-2019 – The planet is burning alive. On September 10, the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast were on fire, as were parts of northern New South Wales. Summer is still three months off, but the “bushfire season” starts earlier and lasts longer each year now. It is nothing like a “bushfire season”, or a “storm season”. It is clear … Continue reading Climate Mayhem: Capitalism Must Fall!
