All out against 'Team Abbott' this Saturday

The Socialist Alliance is proudly supporting the protests against "Team Abbott" on this weekend that have been organised by March Australia.

Over $40 billion in budget measures are currently held up in the senate with opposition parties indicating that they will not be supported. The government is feeling the pressure and offering some token compromises in order to get their main agenda items through.

In this context, community opposition remains critical to defend health care, education and welfare rights among other things. For this reason, we are strongly urging our supporters to attend these demonstrations if you can (details below).

It is also important that we build an ongoing opposition movement to the pro-corporate agenda which Abbott serves no matter which government is pushing it at any point in time. One invaluable way of doing this is to take out a subscription to Green Left Weekly as an information source and as a meaningful act of solidarity in our efforts to build a better world.
