Green Left Weekly provides news, information, opinion and debate from an

environmental and left perspective.

Featured this week: HOWARD'S MINISTER FOR RACISM

Widely criticised for his "insensitive" approach in handling refugee
issues, immigration minister Philip Ruddock has been rewarded by Prime
Minister John Howard by having Aboriginal affairs added to his
portfolio.
Green Left Weekly explains how this fits in with the Coalition's
"reform"
agenda.
