Featured this week: Stop work to stop the war!

In a magnificent display of conscience, irreverence and determination,
more than 30,000 high school students took to the streets across
Australia on March 5 to demand "Books not bombs!". There will be another
student strike on March 26. Trade unions have a responsibility to
support this by calling strikes and stop-work meetings so that workers
can join the young people in actively opposing this criminal war.
