Issue #1907      March 16, 2020

This week ...

19th March will mark seventeen years since the first phase of the 2003 Invasion of Iraq started. Australia was one of four countries (US, UK, and Poland) involved in these massive combat operations. Because of Australia’s large role in the Iraq War, the CPA, along with the broader left, voiced their opposition with large scale protests. Published in this week’s history section is the CPA opinion about the incursion of Iraq during that time.

Earlier this month we celebrated International Women’s Day. In commemorating this day we are spending the next four weeks looking at Australian Communist thought on the Women’s Question. Given that the history section is about the Iraq War, we thought it apt to look at how the CPA has viewed the role of women during times of war. The two articles presented here were reflections made during World War II.
