fierclyfab blogs about organizing in her blog Fabulosa Mujer:

organizing for family paid leave, flexible work, living wages, quality affordable childcare is troublesome in that these fights don’t cover or encompass the universal basics foremost before others such as eradicating poverty, land/housing rights, quality healthcare access, not getting your children (if you have any) taken from the state, having a right to not getting pushed out of ones neighborhood via gentrification, immigration raid intimidation and police/state harassment making the issue of family paid leave a middle class and bourgeoisie one.

Australian Courts and First Peoples

Posted by Jack Stephens on February 23, 2007

Larissa Behrendt writes about a recent change in Australian law regarding Ausrialia’s native population:

In-depth studies by Indigenous people such as Boni Robertson and Judy Atkinson have shown that the cause of dysfunction within Indigenous communities can be traced back to a failure to provide adequate services, a failure to invest in infrastructure and a failure to invest in human capital. They show that, over decades, this neglect causes the social fabric of families and communities to unravel and this gives rise to the environment in which anti-social behaviour becomes rife.
