Greeting Venezuelan communist

During his two-day visit to Perth from August 16-18, 2012 Venezuelan Communist Party leader Carolus Wimmer rocked the city.

Addressing a public meeting at the MUA Hall in North Fremantle on Thursday August 16, Wimmer was welcomed by Chris Cain, the MUA state secretary who gave him a message of solidarity on behalf of the MUA.

The public event was organized by the Perth branch of the Communist Party of Australia and attracted lots of interest by different groups who supported the event. The meeting was attended by a delegation from the Socialist Alliance, the Australia-Venezuela Solidarity Network, the RSP and trade unions.[1]

Socialist Alliance conference

On June 11, 2005, the Democratic Socialist Party organized a Socialist Alliance Conference in Australia. There were two special international guests; Mike Treen, from the Unite union in New Zealand and Grant Morgan from the New Zealand Socialist Workers Organisation. The duo addressed the conference on the lessons from the similar attacks on unions across the Tasman.

Greetings were received from Craig Johnston, Chris Cain (bringing greetings from Western Australia's Miners Union Australia; the Construction, Forestry Mining and Engineering Union; and Electrical Trades Unions), the Communist Party of Sudan, the Kurdish Independent Labour Party and the Freedom Socialist Party of the USA.
