"This Friday April 10th we hope you can join us in showing our support for remote Indigenous communities by marching through the streets of Melbourne alongside many other members of our community.

Along with the Victorian Trades Hall Council, we’ll be meeting on the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral on the lands of the Kulin Nation at 3:55pm, ahead of the march departing from Flinders Street Station at 4pm.

We recognise the importance that the connection to land has for Indigenous communities and do not believe that the forced closure of these communities is in the interests of our Indigenous Australian community.

We support, and will defend, the right of Indigenous Australians to maintain their connection to their land and culture and we seek to work cooperatively with Indigenous communities to further the rights of working people and create an Australia that is fair, free and equal.

Come along at 3:55pm and meet up with other union members and supporters to demonstrate your support for remote Indigenous communities."

Who wants Traditional Owners off the lands?
Why? 
Who benefits?
How?
How long till mining companies move in to "uninhabited lands"?

i posted this to another post on here...

"there's more than this that happened way back then.

back then it was just spears and boomerangs vs the the "whitefellas" with their firearms. (rifles, pistols)

The indigenous people that we call Aborigines had no chance against the British bullet....settlers bullets.

They were just "in the way" of white settlement and were eliminated.
These days we call that genocide and prosecute those involved."

this should never happen again

The reef is everyone's responsibility.
 
The Australian Coral Reef Society have released a report written by expert scientists. >> http://buff.ly/1BHVzcj They have laid the cards on the table. We can choose coal, or we can choose the Reef, but we can't have both. We need to make a stand against reckless coal expansion in the Great Barrier Reef and tell Mr Abbott its time to listen to the experts. ACT NOW and give the Reef the chance it deserves. >> http://buff.ly/1BHVwNr

Australia is a human rights disgrace. 
Last month, the Forgotten Children report presented evidence in forensic detail, showing a policy in use by both government and opposition was causing psychological and medical harm to a group of children.

The Syrian conflict is due to climate change... In the documentary 'Years of living dangerously' they mentioned the same thing but it didn't seem compelling enough but here tgey talk about how the climate models. Interesting.

Cats have a devastating effect on wildlife . here they are shown killing a 4kg Pademelon (a mini Kangaroo).
#caturday #cats 
A Tasmanian scientist has caught on camera a feral cat killing and eating a four-kilogram pademelon, providing the best direct evidence of feral cats killing mammals heavier than two kilograms. Scientists suspected that feral cats were capable of taking down the larger animals after the remains ...

I found this in the kids room at 3am. The dog sniffed it out. I thought it was a baby snake. This photo doesn't really do it justice....Probably 15cms long... Easily the fattest one I've ever seen.

Disgraceful.
 
Shockingly, Australian companies Office Choice and Office National are buying paper from a company that uses priceless Indonesian rainforest to make cheap paper. Call on them to stop financing extinction >>
I just took action to tell Australian paper supplies to break it off with rainforest destructor APRIL. Join me!

The News YOU WILL NOT find in Mainstream media.
#Australia #ScottMorrison #Asylumseekers #humanrights  
In his September 25, 2014 video message to asylum seekers detained on Manus Island and Nauru, Scott Morrison plays the tough guy. A deadpan Minister for Immigration speaks directly into the camera: “If you are currently in Papua New Guinea or Nauru, you will not be transferred to Australia… you will remain there until you either choose to return, or you are resettled somewhere else other than in Australia. “Now is the time to think about your fut...

This is why city people without any qualifications or experience... shouldn't be allowed to even mention deforestation.
I bet this paste ball couldn't even name a single tree species that is threatened by deforestation.
 
What can save the rainforest? Your used cellphone
A new scalable way to stop deforestation 

#ted   #tedtalks   #rainforest   #deforestation  
The sounds of the rainforest include: the chirps of birds, the buzz of cicadas, the banter of gibbons. But in the background is the almost-always present sound of a chainsaw, from illegal loggers. Engineer Topher White shares a simple, scalable way to stop this brutal deforestation — that starts with your old cell phone.
