Miller's Point Housing Betrayal, note fine 12 min trailer for the film. Well worth watching. Interestingly from the Daily Tele, but don't be put off.
AS controversy rages over the SBS program Struggle Street, a filmmaker in Millers Point is shooting a documentary about Sydney’s other public housing crisis.

Lance Gowland can be seen at 1'16". He put a lot of work into organising the first night parade, that night, and drove the truck that carried the music system at the head of the parade. He was hassled by police to drive faster and when we reached Hyde Park, instead of allowing us to follow the agreed plan of a bit of a bop there, the police tried to arrest him. I remember a tug of war over Lance's body, a melee, with particularly upset lesbians on one end pulling him free. For more info see Sydney's Pride History Group's "100 Voices" website at camp.org.au

The gay and lesbian movement of the 1970s gives us plenty of ideas about how we might approach refugee activism. What did we do that worked, and how might these things be relevant to the most pressing moral question in Australia today – the shocking mistreatment of refugees and asylum-seekers?

No impunity for torturers.
In a hard-hitting editorial, the New York Times is calling for the investigation and indictment of Dick Cheney and other Bush Admin. officials.

Labor reportedly faltering towards the Brandis line on privacy. Say no to the surveillance state.

Tanya Plibersek:
the surveillance state only makes sense from the perspective of a ruling class, or apologists for them and their status quo. It speaks not of social progress but some "forward to the past" dystopian farce.

I hope you're speaking up within the party. Hyper-policing does not further any kind of humane culture.

Sincerely,
Gary Schliemann, RN
Sign the petition to help put a stop to the proposed mass surveillance laws. Call on the Federal Government to treat Australians like citizens, not suspects.
