Statement on Far-right Terrorist Attack in New Zealand & Our Fight Against Fascism

Spirit of Eureka condemns in the strongest possible terms the far-right terrorist attacks against the Muslim community in New Zealand on March 15th. We express our absolute solidarity with the Muslim community in New Zealand, Australia and anywhere around the world where Muslims are the victims of such hate crimes. We reiterate that we will always stand with the Muslim community and welcome them as a part of Australian society. 

Spirit of Eureka stands resolutely opposed to the racism, hatred, bigotry, ignorance and evil of the reactionary white supremacist, ultra-nationalist, fascist ideologies of the far-right that attempts to weaken and divide the working class along lines of colour, religion, gender and nationality.

At War (En Guerre) - a movie not to miss

Festival synopsis:

At War - 2019 French Film FestivalFilmmaker Stéphane Brizé created a rousing "cri du coeur" (a cry from the heart) for the proletariat with his critically acclaimed feature, The Measure of a Man (AF FFF2016). With the electrifying At War, he channels the spirit underpinning the current "gilets jaunes" (Yellow Vests) movement long before it began, and this time empowering his protagonist – once again played with grand bravura by Cannes award-winner Vincent Lindon (The White Knights, AF FFF2016; Rodin, AF FFF2018) – as a leader of people, rather than a follower.

A Malpractices Commission - Part Two: Global Regimes of Profit

The second of a three part series of articles by Humphrey McQueen (Read part one here.)

De-regulation

A Peoples Court into the current financial system would begin from its de-regulation. In January 1979, then treasurer Howard appointed the Campbell Committee, headed by the boss of a real estate giant, Hookers. The other four Committee members came from the financial sector: one from the AMP, then still a mutual; one out of the bank and stock-broking business run by the shyster Sir Ian Potter; one from the Reserve Bank; and one from the government’s Resources Development Bank. That only one of the members was any kind of screen jockey is a sign of how different the political economy was before de-regulation.

Upcoming Events

"WE SWEAR BY THE SOUTHERN CROSS TO STAND TRULY BY EACH OTHER AND FIGHT TO DEFEND OUR RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES."

FOR A JUST, SOVEREIGN AND DEMOCRATIC AUSTRALIA.

The Spirit of Eureka Committee was established in the lead up to the 150th anniversary of the Eureka Stockade in 2004, to give a strong and united voice to the current struggles of Australia’s working people.

The Spirit of Eureka draws on the continuity and relevance of this important event in the history of Australia to present day endeavours and struggles for justice, democracy and sovereignty.

The Eureka rebellion laid the foundations for Australia’s continuing social, industrial and political struggles. It was advanced for its time and represents an important fighting tradition that continues to inspire our fight today.
