Rally to support Bernard Collaery

Assemble at 8.30am, Thursday 16 December, 2021, at the ACT Courts, Knowles Pl, Canberra City.

 From Alliance Against Political Prosecutions

Bernard Collaery.jpg - 17.42 KBBernard Collaery was in the Supreme Court on 17 November in relation to subpoenas and Judge Mossop’s decision regarding the Appeal court’s remitting of matters back to him.  The interminable to and fro continues.  But AG Cash’s recent decision to try and bring new secret evidence, not even to be shown to Bernard, is a new low in the government’s behaviour. The Attorney General is also trying to keep the Appeal Court’s reasoning for its recent decision secret. This is outrageous and reflects the state of the law in Australia now! It’s no wonder that retired judge Stephen Charles, a Director at the Centre for Public Integrity, describes this prosecution as ‘one of mendacity, duplicity, fraud, criminal behaviour, invasions of legal professional privilege, contempt of court, denial of a fair trial and failure to act as a model litigant’.  Harsh words indeed, but for us out in laypersons land we say they are fully deserved.

Lying in Public Life: The Aussie Scott Morrison “Climate Change Model”

by Binoy Kampmark

Morrison_COP26.jpg - 6.82 KBHe has some gall.  Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison, a person who finds the truth a creature best beaten, shunned and ignored, is now moving into what looks like campaign mode.  At COP26 in Glasgow, he sold the world a climate change model that kept company with countries where fumes linger stubbornly, and the fossil fuels burn bravely.  He made sure to do it the “Australian Way”, ensuring that emission reduction targets would not so much be met as thoroughly “beaten” without the need for taxes.  He spoke of technology unproven and made assumptions unfounded.

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.

To whom does the Eureka Flag belong, and why?

The article below was a presentation given to the executive of SA Unions. The executive endorsed the historical analysis and sentiments about the significance of the Eureka flag and the unfortunate misrepresentations of it by racists organisations.

Carboni Eureka bannerComrades,

I raised the matter of the Eureka flag at SA Unions Executive and believe we need to be able to answer the questions above.  A number of unions use the flag or have incorporated it in their logos and messaging, but it has also been associated with right-wing racists.

I am prompted to write this following the anti-racist rally at Parliament House on July 18.
