Great stuff from two local businesses. Green walls don't just look good, they save energy and money.
Justice for Palestine.
70 years of Nakba. Palestinians enduring a crippling decade-long siege protesting for basic human rights are shot and killed by the Israeli military. Another m...assacre to add to Israel’s growing list.
Over 50 protestors were killed and thousands injured as Israeli PM Netanyahu and US Envoy Jared Kushner glorify colonisation and dispossession. Trump sent a message of support. The protestors were killed through their own fault, they said.
No country should be able to continue to act with such arrogant disregard for human rights and be met with virtual silence from the world. At best Israel is told to “show restraint” be it for dropping thousands of bombs, killing thousands of people, or shooting at unarmed protestors.
Palestinians have the right of return. Palestinians have the right to justice.
Palestinians have the right to expect that basic international standards of humanity and decency should be applied to them.

The Greens will always put workers’ rights first and stand up for the unfettered right to strike and collectively organise.
Workers at Australian Aluminium Finishing will be on strike this week to demand a fair deal from their employers.
If you live or work near Wetherill Park, you can show your support by visiting their picket line, which will be running every morning from 7am.

Sounds good to me!
We need a platform and political vision that recognises that politics in Australia is fundamentally broken. It's not just a matter of bringing in a few new laws or swapping out a Minister or two.
We need to nationalise the banks, ensure the right of housing to all, guarantee clean air and water, construct publicly owned renewable energy, tax billionaires, and cap CEO salaries. We need to challenge power at its core - capitalism.
We need to fundamentally change the system.
Today is Transgender Day of Visiblity, a day of empowerment and recognition for transgender, genderqueer and non-conforming people and celebration of the diversity of identity and expression in our community.
To my transgender, non-binary, genderqueer and questioning friends, comrades and colleagues - you are valid, and you are valued. Keep being as you as you can possibly be!
Teachers march for refugee justice!
Amelia Kerr, one of our members, reports:

Both the Liberal and Labor governments breach humans right every day and have blood on their hands. Teachers4Refugees mobilised in huge numbers to ensure the message that refugees are welcome here is not drowned out by politicians racist rhetoric. #bringthemhere]
