Keep Space for Peace

This article was a leaflet endorsed by a number of peace groups and handed out as a four-page A4 flyer at the Festival of Ideas in Adelaide, on our new Space Agency, Friday 13th April.

So now Australia has its own Space Agency …

Sapce War….... probably inevitable, given that every other OECD country, except Iceland, has one, and that we increasingly rely on the peaceful use of outer space as a resource for telecommunications, environmental imaging, etc. Humanitarian uses of these include weather forecasting, early warning systems for disaster management, and environmental resource management, such as food security.

But as with nuclear power and drone technology, peaceful and military uses are often interlinked, and the peaceful used as a cover for the military.

Drop The Conspiracy Charges Against Witness K & Bernard Collaery!

CHARGE HOWARD, DOWNER & BRANDIS FOR CONSPIRING TO STEAL TIMOR-LESTE’S RESOURCES

by Andrew (Andy) Alcock
Information Officer
AETFA SA (Australian East Timor Friendship Association - South Australia)

Below is email sent out by Andy Alcock from AETFA. It comprises his letter to the editor of The Australian Financial Review followed by background information based on an abridged commentary from Matthew Aid.

Prosecution of Witness K and CollaeryHi friends

Many are asking why the ALP has been very silent on the issue of the Australian Government’s intention to charge Bernard Collaery and Witness K with conspiracy.

To the Longford maintenance workers

The following is an open letter from Spirit of Eureka to the striking Longford maintenance workers delivered on June 28, 2018 marking one year in their ongoing fight against ExxonMobil and contractor UGL.

-----------------------------------------------

To the Longford maintenance workers,

It was seven months ago when we had the honour of awarding you the annual Spirit of Eureka Award in recognition of the inspirational struggle you are waging. At the time, how many of us could honestly have imagined that you would still be continuing the fight after more than 365 days. It would be a cause for celebration if only it wasn’t also a travesty. Nevertheless, it is an opportunity for some reflection on what is taking place and the legacy that your struggle will leave.

"WE SWEAR BY THE SOUTHERN CROSS TO STAND TRULY BY EACH OTHER AND FIGHT TO DEFEND OUR RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES."

FOR A JUST, SOVEREIGN AND DEMOCRATIC AUSTRALIA.

The Spirit of Eureka Committee was established in the lead up to the 150th anniversary of the Eureka Stockade in 2004, to give a strong and united voice to the current struggles of Australia’s working people.

The Spirit of Eureka draws on the continuity and relevance of this important event in the history of Australia to present day endeavours and struggles for justice, democracy and sovereignty.

The Eureka rebellion laid the foundations for Australia’s continuing social, industrial and political struggles. It was advanced for its time and represents an important fighting tradition that continues to inspire our fight today.
