Aussie Reds: Floods reveal twin scourge — Climate change and neo-liberalism

“Governments are keen to avoid that other neo-liberal shibboleth, taxes, to meet this kind of emergency.”

The Communist Party of Australia’s Bob Briton writes:

…Recent floods will no doubt provide another cue for the neo-liberals to push their small government “medicine”. For working people it must be a spur to build the political forces that will put public assets back under public ownership and control and take urgent action commensurate with the problem of climate change.
