We've reblogged on Redline, a couple of excellent articles from Red Flag,
the paper of Socialist Alternative in Australia,

Two fascinating articles about Australia and Anzac Day.

The first is by veteran socialist activist and writer Tom O’Lincoln, on
what the ‘diggers’ returned to in Oz after WW1:

The second is about the cops shutting down an Aboriginal protest about the
Frontier Wars, the wars whose name dare not be spoken but which played a
far greater role in shaping Australian society than Gallipoli did:
