Robert F. Kennedy Junior

This page, and pages linked to from this page, contains discussion on both Facebook and Twitter on the campaign by Robert F. Kennedy (RFK) Junior to win the nomination to be the Democratic Party candidate for the November 2024 Presidential elections. In spite of hostility from the Democratic Party National Committee, the corporate newsmedia and even other members of the Kennedy clan, RFK Junior is continuing to win ever greater support from members of the Democratic Party, other Americans not registered as Democrats and even Republicans. Given the harm caused by the United States' military and spy agencies in previous times and today, in Korea, Vietnam, Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Latin America, Africa, Germany (with the bombing of Nordstream), the rest of Europe, the far east and America itself and given the threat of a United-States-initiated nuclear war hanging over all of us, having a United States President who is just as opposed to the United States' war machine as were RFK (his father) and JFK (his uncle), is of vital interest to all humankind. Another urgent reason why we need RFK Junior to be successful in his campaign to become President, is his outspoken support for Julian Assange, which stands in stark contrast to Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and even members of the Bring Julian Assange Home Parliamentary Support Group from who I have heard nothing in recent weeks as Assange stands on the verge of of being extradited the the US. To these pages, I will copy discussions which are now occurring on Facebook about RFK Junior's grass-roots campaign. This will serve two purposes: (1) to provide a better and more navigable structure to the discussion and (2) as a safeguard against any possible future choice by the owners of Facebook to censor this discussion. of course, visitors' comments, whether in agreement or otherwise, are just as welcome here as they are on Facebook.

BREAKING: Facebook is stopping Australians from joining their unions. This is happening RIGHT NOW.

Facebook’s news ban has just hit the Australian Unions website.

This means that workers cannot join their unions via our website if it is posted on Facebook.

This is a disgraceful attack on Australians’ right to join a union and a serious undemocratic act of censorship.

Facebook already has a record of empowering anti-union corporations with tools to de-unionise and undermine workers’ rights – for example, last year they gave employers the power to blacklist terms like “unionise” from their Facebook pages.

You can fight back against big tech’s anti-democratic, anti-worker actions by joining your union and passing this email and QR code onto others who are not yet members.

Facebook’s attempts to quash workers’ organising won’t stop us. We know that thousands of Australians just like you won’t let their right to join a union be taken away by big tech.

It’s only by taking direct, immediate action together that we will be able to send a message to the Facebook bosses: no matter how hard they try to stop us, working people will always stand together against massive corporate interests.

Fight back against Facebook. Join your union right now.

In solidarity
