Organisers of the festival and revelers alike tackled big topics of sexism, homophobia, Donald Trump and the impeachment of Dilma Rousseff. Some festival-goers…

the biggest clinton cover up of all? she didn’t come to fool you

Sabrina Ceol
No comments

On 8 November 2016 I found myself watching the Clinton—Trump showdown from a remote town on the Pacific Coast. In its aftermath I joined the masses in experiencing a carnival of emotions, namely, the overwhelming sensation that I had been sucker-punched. I’m now sitting in a sandy cafe listening to a blonde with a drawling accent…

let’s talk about the rohingya

No comments

Rohingya. When you hear this word, does it spark any thought in your mind? Does it spark any segment on the news you’ve seen recently? Anything you learned in class? Does it sound familiar… at all? When I asked some of my friends if they’ve heard the word “Rohingya”, the answer was “no”. And this…

an open letter to donald trump

Adrianna Zappavigna
2 comments

Dear Mr. Trump, I’d like to start by saying this letter does not come from a strongly political place. These days, I find myself heavily disillusioned with politics in my own country, let alone yours. I have no interest in taking sides and my decision to write this letter was not politically motivated. I felt…

australia votes: most memorable 2016 federal election campaign gaffes

Eden Faithfull
No comments

There is no space of time more intense for Australian party leaders than the weeks leading up to the day of the federal election. We know this, because there seems to be very little practical work going for the rest of the year. Though it seems that during this week of hand shaking and baby…

Sarah Iuliano
One comment

    Campaign 2016 closes up for Australia’s political hopefuls in just two days. Recent research based on Twitter users suggests young people and women are the group most undecided – or more aptly, weighing up their options – about how to exercise their democratic right.

icymi: budget 2016

Sarah Iuliano
No comments

Winners and losers: it’s a dichotomy Treasurer Scott Morrison wants to ditch when Australians discuss the Turnbull Government’s Federal Budget for 2016-17. He’d prefer to talk about jobs and growth. But Scott Morrison has too much privilege to tell us how to speak about this Budget. The fact of the matter is, if you are…

young women and Hillary Clinton: making sense of the generational divide

Danika Kimball
One comment

As the 2016 bid for the Democratic nomination moves forward, Bernie Sanders has proven to be a continuous complication in Hillary Clinton’s otherwise shoe-in nomination. Her victory over Bernie Sanders in this month’s Iowa caucus was slim, and her loss in New Hampshire was profound. The lack of support for Clinton’s campaign from younger generations…

the feminist vote: clinton vs sanders

Eden Faithfull
2 comments

Since the time of Julius Caesar, politics has had the profound ability to polarise the members of a community. Even in our relatively peaceful contemporary era, allegiant political supporters have their back-stabbing daggers at the ready – and for much less than the subjugation of the Roman Republic. In the months leading up to the…

Eliza Graves-Browne
No comments

  The Turnbull Government has made it clear that ‘all options are on the table’ when it comes to tax reform. With a constant re-assurance that fairness is the most important element, is this really achievable? There has been recent media hype surrounding the proposal by South Australia Premier Jay Weatherill, regarding his proposal to…

When politicians make fools of themselves on social media, it’s fair to say that it’s an almost pleasurable experience to survey the ensuing wrath from the comfort of our smartphones. It’s almost enough to make you feel sorry for our Aussie pollies. We are able to look back in a kind of awe at the…
