Which side are you on?
"Never forget the history of politics and which side we're on. We're on the side of making profits. We're on the side of people owning private capital." Reith to a luncheon of businessmen in Perth last year. Never forget the history of politics and the ceaseless attacks on workers' rights and conditions and on trade unions. We are on the side of the workers. We are for job security, jobs for the unemployed, a living wage for all workers and the maintenance of traditional democratic rights that have been fought for and won in the past. This means that we have to oppose the big corporations — Rio Tinto, BHP, the big banks and others. We have to oppose the policies of the Federal Government which is implementing the policies and directives of the big corporations. That's where we stand! Peter Symon, General Secretary, Communist Party of Australia.
