Workers BushTelegraph is primarily for original articles, original news, stories you can’t read elsewhere, original verse, original pictures, videos and music.
Note from the Editor.
WBT has arrangements, albeit informal, with writers, political activists, musicians, artists and film makers to post their work on this website.
If you wish to have something published please write to:
It is best to send articles in Word format checked for accuracy and grammar.
Authors will be contacted for approval before publication.
Comments are published automatically and are the responsibility of the author. Please keep comments as short as possible.
A valid email address is required to make comment. Email addresses given by commentators are private and are not distributed without their knowledge and consent.
I read ALL the comments that are posted.
Occasional abusive comments aside, I thank everyone who takes the trouble to comment. Please keep commenting!
Second, I’m not going to publish all comments – i.e. I will not publish racist or anti-worker sentiments.
My primary interest with this website is to present useful information and ideas and notices that may, I hope, have practical significance.
I’m not setting up a debating forum, although experience tells me that will happen.
Sometimes people just wish to vent their anger.
WBT publishes material on notoriously sensitive topics.
These are topics that attract a fair amount of anger & silliness – along with very thoughtful input.
WBT does not seek ‘balance’ in reporting when it favours the wealthy and powerful, the bigoted or the sectarian — readers will have to go to the mass media for that.
Topics covered on WBT
- The Master/servant relationship. The power of boss over worker. More can be found out about this at the LeftPress Website – After the Waterfront – the workers are quiet
- The struggle of indigenous people for land rights and social justice in Australia.
- The role of government. What enterprises should government own and run. Why and how?
Workers BushTelegraph aims are shown at Welcome
WBT may decline to publish material that contradicts its purpose.
