All workers must have the right to organise and to full legal protection from unfair dismissal. All laws against strikes and pickets must be repealed. All discrimination based on nationality, ethnic background, religion, gender or sexual preference must be outlawed. Women must have the right to unrestricted abortion on demand, and homosexuals the right to marry and enjoy the same rights and benefits as other married couples.
All federal and state “anti-terror” legislation, enacted since 2001 in the fraudulent “war on terror”, must be repealed. Its real targets are not terrorists, but ordinary people. Its aim is to build up the forces of the capitalist state and prepare for authoritarian forms of rule against the working class.
Likewise, anti-democratic electoral measures, including those aimed at protecting the two-party system by preventing minor parties from standing candidates under their party name, and the disenfranchisement of hundreds of thousands of first-time voters through the early closing of electoral rolls, must also be repealed.
