Wobbly times number 107

Spot the Wobbly

These films were shot at a rally I attended in March, 2011 concerning the death in custody of an aboriginal elder named Mr. Ward. The upshot of the rally was to demand an end to privatisation of the public service in Western Australia. After all, privatisation is just another aspect of imposing neo-liberalist ideology on the working class. In short, it's commodification and just a way for conservatives to distance themselves from their duty of care. Conservatives talk about responsibility; but when it comes to social responsibility, they're all about developing a cost-efficiency democracy to save the 'taxpayers' money. Well, let me tell you right here and now, it's the working class which creates all the wealth not already found in nature. It's the working class which deserves to control ALL the wealth they produce. The taxation issue is a diversion away from this basic fact. 'Tax' is used by conservatives who wish you to continue to believe in the absurdity of being robbed justly of the wealth and by extension, the political power you as a class produce.
