How the Murdoch press keeps Australia’s dirty secret: John Pilger

‘Nigger Hunt’ by Murdoch Media

Aboriginal Genocide by Apartheid Australia

Aboriginal Genocide

Apartheid and genocide are utterly evil, whether Israel’s ongoing Palestinian Genocide or Aboriginal Genocide in Australia. There is an ongoing Aboriginal Genocide and Aboriginal Ethnocide that demands international action against a pro-war, pro-Zionist, US lackey, human rights-abusing Apartheid Australia.

The so-called “Closing the Gap” has a long way to go in one of the richest countries in the world. Read more about Aboriginal Genocide by Apartheid Australia
