Workers BushTelegraph is one way of bringing together the views of the 25% of voters in Australia who are disenchanted with the mainstream parties around crucial questions. It is a place for writing articles, discussion and comment … but also is an engine for organisation. We address the following questions:
- Industrial question: The Master/servant relationship. The struggle for Worker Control.
- Ownership question: Who owns the land? (Rights to the city, Right to country) The struggle of indigenous people for land rights and social justice in Australia.
- Political question: This is the class struggle. Who owns the means of production? Who governs? How are Democratic Rights won and shared.
In spring of 2018 Workers BushTelegraph moved from facebook @ Workers BushTelegraph to return to this site where it began in 2006.
WBT is publishing mainly essays, it is for writers and artists [but also includes live video and memes of various types].
WBT continues to use soundcloud for any recorded material like interviews and songs.
