Immigration, Racism and the Labour Movement


An upcoming conference asks some hard questions about the politics of immigration.

The conference "Immigration, Racism and the Labour Movement" has been organised by the Sydney Branch of the Australian Society of Labour History.

The one-day forum, to be held at Women's College, Sydney University on Sunday September 19 will feature a wide range of speakers including: Katherine Betts, Angela Chan, Jock Collins, Shirley Fitzgerald, Bob Gould, Mark O'Connor, Frank Panucci, Phillip Ruddock and Con Sciacca.

Organisers say the Forum will "provide an opportunity for an historical and contemporary examination" of issues including: immigration quotas, multiculturalism and racism.

It will climax with a debate: "Is Mass Migration Good for Australia?"

Registration fee is $35 - $20 concession.
