Australian Senate equates communism with fascism!

A despicable motion, which equalizes communism with fascism and right-wing extremism, was adopted by the Australian Senate earlier this month. 
 
Under the responsibility of both the two major political forces, the right-wing “Coalition” (Liberal Party, National Party) and the social democratic Australian Labor Party (ALP), the unhistorical and unscientific theory of the “two extremes” has officially entered Australian politics.

Source: Communist Party of Australia.
On October 30th, the Communist Party of Australia (CPA) marked its 100th anniversary. On this occasion a number of events have been organized in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth from 29th October to 1st November 2020. 

In a press release, the Communist Party points out: 

"Only one conclusion can be drawn on surveying 100 years of Communist; that the party has has a colourful and successful past. In the first decade the Party struggled with the boom of the early 20s but as the depression hit the Party gained much notice as the organisers of the unemployed, providing food and pressure on Government to provide resources for the unemployed. They ran eviction struggles and these made headlines in Sydney and in other parts of Australia.

100th anniversary of the Communist Party of Australia

On October 30th, 2020, the Communist Party of Australia (CPA) will mark its 100th anniversary. The Party was founded at a conference on 30th October 1920 at the Sydney Trades Hall as response to two factors – the appalling conditions of the working class and the inspiration of the revolutionary developments in Russia with the 1917 Great October Socialist Revolution. It was the outcome of the experience gleaned in the struggles of the labour movement from 1890 to 1920 and was one of the decisive revolutionary acts of the Australian working class.

Australia: Communist Party's statement on the government’s response to COVID-19 pandemic

Statement by the CC of the Communist Party of Australia (CPA) on the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

THE GOVERNMENT HAS FAILED US. THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED US. 

Coronavirus was brought into Australia by travellers from other countries, yet for weeks they were simply allowed to get off planes and ships without any government screening, at most being told to self isolate for 14 days. The onus was put on the individual traveller. This did not work. The government’s inaction has led to the virus spreading throughout the country and people dying.

The World Federation of Trade Unions, representing 92 million workers in the 5 continents, expresses its solidarity with Sydney bus drivers who are on strike as a response to the government’s announcement for a privatization program of bus services in the city’s south and inner west.
The privatization plan was announced, despite the fact that the government assured the bus drivers in writing that the bus route will not be privatized.
