TOXIC STATE - Australia's double standards

Julie Bishop’s recent support of the English demands to go after Russia over the alleged misuse of military-grade nerve agent to poison a known double agent on English soil demonstrates the double standards of Australia. Australian farmers and other sectors are using herbicides and pesticides with chemical components similar to high-grade military poisons, e.g. DDT, 2-4-5-T & mustard gas, which is used to kill weevils in grain silos and rabbits in warrens. These toxins leach into the soil and our river systems and when rain comes they drain into our aquifers. Read more about TOXIC STATE - Australia's double standards

Block Native Title Amendment (Indigenous Land Use Agreements) Bill 2017

King of Racism, George Brandis, Attorney-General

There is a grave concern that the national parliament will accept the bleeting of the racist fear mongers who run immediately to the king of racism, George Brandis, Attorney-General, to amend the Native Title Act. The Commonwealth government is now desperate to overturn the recent decision of the full bench of the Federal Court in the McGlade v Native Title Registrar case, which puts the validity of many ILUAs in doubt as not all 'named applicants’ who needed to sign an ILUA did so.
