Welcome to the June 2021 edition of SEARCH News. Once again we have an edition full of high-quality analysis, reports and reviews.
Highlights include Natalie Lang, ASU NSW and ACT Branch Secretary, on the We Won't Wait campaign; new NSW AMWU Secretary Cory Wright on the Hunter Jobs Alliance, as well as reports from young Queensland and Western Australian comrades on how they are waging - and winning - campaigns for just transition and renewable energy projects.
We also have a report on the work of the SEARCH Voice Treaty Truth Working Group, which has been busy encouraging SEARCH members to ramp up their support for a First Nations Voice to Parliament that is enshrined in the Constitution.
There are reviews of a fascinating NYC art exhibition by 20th century communist artist Alice Neel, and a new book on the history of Russian and Baltic migration to Australia titled White Russians, Red Peril.
And we pay tribute to two comrades who contributed far more than their fair share to the cause – Vera Deacon and Steve Cooper.
ACT SEARCH Committee member Chris Warren makes the case for a four-day week to be part of the progressive agenda, and David Bunn writes ‘from a Melbourne wine bar between lockdowns, with a thumbnail dipped in red’, to outline a progressive agenda that all SEARCH members could surely get behind.
And that's just a taste of this bumper edition!
