One year of Iraq occupation -- troops out now!

It is one year since Washington, with its allies in Canberra and London,
carried out its brutal, illegal and unjust invasion of Iraq. Despite the
talk of a ?handover? of power to Iraqis on June 30, the White House
intends to install a puppet regime and keep control of the country. The
warmongers' objectives remain the same: Iraq's oil, a stable client
regime in Baghdad and a base for strengthening US imperialism's control
of the Middle East. [Full story]

``There's been a campaign of lies and deceit by the government for the
last 20 years'', Peter Guiverra told Green Left Weekly on March 10.
Guiverra is one of many Indigenous workers who, for the last two
decades, has been fighting to win wages withheld by the government and
never paid. While he is talking about the Queensland government, it is
rapidly becoming clear governments across Australia are also culpable.
