Title Over Half a Million Workers on the Streets Across Australia
 
Subtitle <a href="http://oceania.indymedia.org">Australia</a>: Working Conditions
 
Description More than <a href="http://www.melbourne.indymedia.org/news/2005/11/99471.php">half a
million people</a> took part in over 300 protests across Australia on 15
November, the first initiative of a national movement of workers showing
their solidarity in opposition to proposed Industrial Relations laws, an
attack on workers conditions, by the Howard Federal government. <a
href="http://melbourne.indymedia.org">Melbourne</a> saw possibly the
largest political rally in its history with up to 250,000 people
clogging the heart of the City, and marching in a crowd that reached for
18 blocks. <a href="http://sydney.indymedia.org">Sydney</a> also saw
around <a
href="http://melbourne.indymedia.org/news/2005/11/99441.php">45,000
people gathered in Martin Place</a> after an early morning <a
href="http://melbourne.indymedia.org/news/2005/11/99482.php">blockade</a>
of the M4 motorway, while <a
href="http://perth.indymedia.org">Perth</a>, Adelaide, Brisbane, Hobart
and Darwin all saw unprecedented crowds. <a
href="http://www.melbourne.indymedia.org/news/2005/11/99471.php">Regional
Australia</a> also came out in force, and solidarity protests occurred
in <a

Auckland and Christchurch.</b></a>

Article Text The Howard government’s IR changes and anti-terrorist legislation are
closely linked and are in keeping with the <a
href="http://melbourne.indymedia.org/news/2005/10/98374.php">political
behaviour of Australian conservatism</a> in government. The new Sedition
Laws suggest that industrial disputes or <a
href="http://melbourne.indymedia.org/news/2005/11/99222.php">industrial
matters may be labelled seditious</a>, where there is an absence of
"good faith". The reforms further push <a
href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australian_Workplace_Agreement">Australian
Workplace Agreements</a>, with the <a
href="http://melbourne.indymedia.org/news/2005/10/98511.php">right to
strike effectively being lost</a>, while<a
href="http://melbourne.indymedia.org/news/2005/10/97158.php"> employer
use of lockouts</a> is encouraged.
