This week ...

Hello Comrades! Another week, another set of articles for our Australian Communist Thought and History section!

This week, for our theory section, we have a report from former general secretary Lance L Sharkey on the disruptive nature of imperialists who are attempting to stop peace at all costs.

In our history section, we have a report, along with partial transcripts of a court case, by an Ironworker named Thornton who challenged the Ironworkers’ Union when it refused to admit him because of his political beliefs. This refusal extended to the point where officials attempted to block Thornton from working in the industry.

This is another stark reminder that “free speech” is a farce in bourgeois democracies.
