AUSTRALIA: Racism: Don't let them divide us!
<http://www.greenleft.org.au/back/2006/659/659p3.htm>

Peter Costello and other Coalition politicians have been putting on another,
nastier, show of late. It is about race. Last week, Costello took time
out from gloating about the long economic boom to deliver a sermon on
`Australian values' and to threaten the Muslim community. Shamefully,
the federal leader of
the Labor Party, Kim Beazley, also chimed in. Then it was the Christian
fundamentalist Coalition leader of the house Tony Abbott's turn to play
the race card in parliament. [Full article]

Anti-worker laws: Worse for women
<http://www.greenleft.org.au/back/2006/659/659p28.htm>

The government's new workplace relations laws, which will come
into effect at the end of this month, represents a devastating new
attack on the work and family life of women workers.
