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

environmental and left perspective.

Featured this week: ROLLBACK NOT ENOUGH! ABOLISH THE GST

The ALP hopes its promise to ``rollback'' the GST will ensure it wins
government. Green Left Weekly explains why no amount of rollback will
make
the tax ``fairer'' to working people and the poor.
