Fight to win! Students vs. Top-up Fees

05-02-2004 15:07

Think it the right thing...
The UK government's position on top-up fees is a straightforward plank in the neoliberal platform that was first laid out by Reagan and Thatcher in the 1980s, gathered steam for a while, and has recently run into quite a few setbacks (in Seattle, Genoa, Porto Alegre, Cancun, and Baghdad). It is not a "normal" domestic dispute within the UK, and it doesn't make much sense to act as if it is; it's part of a worldwide trend to privatize public resources, and to destroy the legitimacy of the liberal political consensus of the 1950s/1960s/1970s.

05-02-2004 08:49

Ngurampaa sheep farm, Hebel, south Queensland - - How can a racist country like Australia have a seat on the United Nations Human Rights Commission?

That’s the question burning the gut of Aboriginal activist Michael Anderson. In 30 years of campaigning at home and abroad for the Aboriginal cause, that UN platform was a favourite stamping ground where he and other Indigenous people got a good hearing and built valuable connections.
