‘refugee system’ and how to fix it. Under the ideological banner of giving refugees back agency and dignity, proposals have been put forward to create ‘special enterprise zones’ where refugees can work and which will attract multinational companies, who can then sell ethical goods in a particularly galling example of Brand-Aid-type humanitarianism ( Richey and Ponte, 2011 ; White, 2019 ). If nothing else, this demonstrates how important it is to question any form of humanitarian

Australia 1982 Drawing on two studies of The Clash's 1982 Australian ten-gig tour by Solis ( 2017 ) and Moliterno ( 2019 ), Gall ( 2020 ) examined the impact of Strummer and Aboriginal rights activists speaking at the gigs. Largely utilising contemporaneous newspaper reporting, Solis ( 2017 ) and Moliterno ( 2019 ) cast doubt on the size and longevity of this impact, believing the impact

Consequently, there was much very much the view among activists and active members that Crow would do ‘the job’ for them. For example, seldom did RMT activists go in large numbers to events outside the RMT at which Crow spoke in order to support him. For his followers within the RMT, he was seen as doing something that they could not, 37  See Gall (2012a: 244–248) on Tommy Sheridan ‘getting into character’. 38  As

It is worth getting some early perspective on these by noting the RMT’s first three objectives. These are: (a) to secure the complete organisation of all workers employed by any board, company or authority in connection with rail, sea

activists to speak at The Clash's Australian tour gigs in 1982. Simonon (Strummer et al . 2008 : 335) recounted Aboriginal activists approached him initially. By contrast, Maloney and Grosz ( The Monthly December 2013/January 2014) contend Strummer phoned the leading Aboriginal activist, Gary Foley, and then invited him to the band's hotel to educate him on Australian politics. Having met, according to Maloney and Grosz: ‘Strummer ended up asking Foley to share his thoughts on stage during that night's gig.’ Music journalist, David Langsam (Gall 2020
