Saturday, 8 January 2022 - 7:30am to 9:00am
Occupy Sydney

What we learnt from Occupy here II Larissa Payne reflects on the political movement Occupy.

How to Change the World here II I heard an amazing speech by a Kurdish Woman Nilüfer Koç at the Ecosocialism Conference that lays out the real, on the ground, changes that have been put in place in her country a real attempt to squash the present capitalist mind set which is often taken for granted as the only possible idealogical framework possible like air we breathe.

No to Casuals at Unis here II Great speech from a recent rally against insecure work at Melbourne University and Universities in general.

The Menzies Centre here II Jeff Sparrow outlines some reasons to be against the setting up of a right wing think tank in the middle of Melbourne University.

Prisms of the People here II Professor Hahnie Han, from the John Hopkins University in the US, talks about her  book Prisms of the People. It is about research into how movements are built, movements that can get positive results for populations despite the unequal distribution of wealth and power. Important stuff if you are working for positive change.
