Change the system - not the climate!

Al Gore's film An Inconvenient Truth has helped dramatise the enormity of the global environmental crisis... But Gore focuses on individual actions, makes few serious demands on big business and endorses the largely voluntary market-based measures, such as emissions trading, that are contained in Kyoto. Yet, what is required is the rapid, far-reaching reorganisation of industry, energy, transport and mass consumption patterns, and the massive transfer of clean technology to the Third World. This is simply not possible under capitalism.

Cruelty and xenophobia in the 'lucky country'

The Australian writer Donald Horne meant the title of his celebrated book, The Lucky Country, as irony. "Australia is a lucky country run by second-rate people who share its luck", he lamented in 1964, describing much of the Australian elite as unfailingly unoriginal, race-obsessed and in thrall to imperial power and its wars.


Government policies killing Aborigines

On January 18, the Australian ran a story on a leaked report commissioned by the Peter Beattie Labor Queensland government on the shocking living conditions for Aborigines in Queensland (see accompanying article). Green Left Weekly asked Sam Watson, Murri leader and member of the Socialist Alliance, about this and the ongoing struggle for justice for Indigenous people in Australia.

As expected, arrogance, scorn, ridicule & derision was the tone of the day from the judge, the plaintiff's barrister & lawyer, leading to no stay being granted again. Justice McDougall did not disappoint me. He was full of his own glory or was it all just a front, shitting himself if he stuffed up.

The Judge was scripted.
No doubt about it.

Phil Atkinson & Mick Gallagher were there with Mick giving out Love For Life fliers in the packed court room while I was on stage with the judge. Phil says they were reading the fliers intently.

I told the judge that Supreme Court judges were arrogant, containing highly developed intellects that were very clever and crafty, determined to ignore truth & justice without any empathy, compassion or love for this nations citizens.

Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act- by Arthur and Fiona Cristian

Most Australians mistakenly believe we have a Constitution that determines how we are governed and the laws that are made that have an effect over our lives. Most Australians are unaware that, even to this day, The Commonwealth Of Australia does not have a Constitution and in fact, The Commonwealth Of Australia is now a registered private corporation, which the men and women of Australia do not own or control.

How did this happen?

Why have the men and women of Australia been lied to for more than 100 years?

Who has really benefited from this 100-year-old secret?
Lets find out.

There were three referendums over the Australian Constitution prior to 1900. When the results of the third referendum of 1898 for the proposed Australian Constitution were sent across to the British Colonial Office, 68 alterations were made by the Colonial Office before it was presented to the Imperial Parliament as a bill for debate.

Is John Howard a fool?- by Anne Goddard

Prime Minister John Howard and his nuclear industry buddies continue to stoke the nuclear industry expansion propaganda flames.

They are doing their best (and using OUR tax dollars) to convince the Australian people that nuclear power is a foregone conclusion, trying to convince people like YOU and I, that heading down the nuclear path is a "safe" solution for our future energy security.

Attempting to brainwash their voters into believing that nuclear power is our only energy alternative.

Obviously, they are under the impression that Australian people are complete and absolute FOOLS.

Can you help? - by John Tracey

The office of the Qld Adult Guardian have imposed draconian and cruel restrictions on the life of my nephew Marley Creed (above) including confining him to Brisbane against his will

Marley has (and has been assessed by the supreme court to have) the capacity to make all decisions in his life except for financial matters - he has a physical disability

However on 19/12/06 the Guardianship and Administration Tribunal removed all powers of decision making about his personal life and gave those powers to the Adult Guardian

They have however made no attempt at all to provide his basic needs such as accommodation clothes a survivable income and health care

Merry Christmas my oh so smart little friend from down under.Blessings and all things wonderful from your friend from up above.


Quote: There are approximately 2 billion children (persons under age 14) in the world. However, since Santa does not visit children of Muslim, Hindu, Jewish or Buddhist (except maybe in Japan) religions, this reduces the workload for Christmas night to 19% of the total, or 378 million (according to the population reference bureau). At an average (census) rate of 3.5children per household, that comes to 108 million homes, presuming there is at least one good child in each. Unquote --- Read More

Benny Zable's Invasion Day PosterI am preparing an action for Invasion Day at Parliament House.

I have prepared this poster with the Nimbin Environment Centre, which is being worked on by a graphic artist at the moment to give it more prominence.

With Peter Garrett selling us out and the Howard Government's Nuclear Australian dream, I think its time to bring it to public on this day when we converge at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy.

Little Johnny Howard appears on stage outside the Parliament giving out Australian of the year certificates. Last year we got close enough to the stage for him to see us.

Please download,print poster and send around: JPG 372x520 31.2kb or PDF 73.4kb
