The End of the Lucky Country: Australia on Fire

There is some divergence of opinions amongst progressives of why there is an environmental crisis in Australia. The author of this article, David Studdert, argues the case of poor land practices by European settlers. We share it for consideration.
The article was originally published online at The Greanville Post.

Be under no illusion. After these fires nothing will ever be the same for Captain Cook Australia. It is a war of the land against the people.

These fires will change Australia forever. The question is how and who controls that change?

Of course Morrison will go and soon, the government will reluctantly purchase more, but not enough, tankers and choppers, the landscape will scar for two or three years, but the scars inflicted by these fires, they will define Australia’s idea of itself for decades to come. These fires have burned more than lives and acreage. Australia has some tough decisions and a new world to get used to.

There is no more LUCKY COUNTRY for a start. That myth is dead and buried.

TRUMP COMMITS MULTIPLE MURDER IN LINE WITH US IMPERIALIST TERRORISM

By Jose Maria Sison
Chairperson Emeritus, International League of Peoples’ Struggle
January 4, 2020

By ordering the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani and the Iranian and Iraqi officials accompanying him at the Baghdad airport, US President Trump has blatantly committed multiple murder as well as aggression against the sovereignty of Iraq and Iran in violation of international law as well as US law which prohibits such aggressive act without the prior declaration of war by authorization of the US Congress.

Trump himself has boastfully and arrogantly admitted the criminal act that he ordered the assassination of Soleimani and his Iranian and Iraqi companions in two cars. His crime of multiple murder is in line with the aggressive and terrorist character of US imperialism. As the No. 1 terrorist in world history and contemporary times, US imperialism has committed acts of aggression, destroying the lives and properties of millions of people, even without the formal declaration of war. Imperialist aggression is the worst kind of terrorism which the people suffer and abhor.
