I had a letter published in the Midland Express today on the importance of factual accuracy in public debate. The letter was written partly in response to the many letters from climate change denialists published in newspapers and also the letters making ridiculous claims about wind power and smart meters that often appear in the Express

My video message urging Australian Prime Minister +Julia Gillard and Senator Bob Carr to take action for Tibet. 

This is part of an action by Student for a Free Tibet (SFT) to send short video messages to world leaders asking them to take action for Tibet. See https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-N2_NmbljEmpm2Ies6JeG3Afn6843tJq for more videos.

I think the key point is that they just need to speak frankly about the situation and let the Chinese know that the status quo is unacceptable. The Chinese government is in a very difficult situation at the moment. It has lost control of the situation in Tibet and is unsure how to respond. International pressure at this time can have a significant effect.

The Australian government has released a white paper titled "Australia in the Asian Century." The paper seems very focused on economics and education. Human rights are only briefly discussed on one page. There is nothing about promoting democracy.

West Papua is a good example of Australia's failure to take adequate action in the face of serious human rights abuses. Similar problems exist throughout the region. There are only a handful of consolidated democracies in Asia and as one of them Australia needs to take a leadership role.

The winners of the 2012 Right Livelihood Award (aka Alternative Nobel Prize) have just been announced. It was great to see Sima Samar and Gene Sharp recognised for their work. Gene Sharp won the award for developing the principles and strategies of nonviolent resistance. Sima Samar won the award for her human rights work in Afghanistan. She also won the Taiwan Foundation for Democracy's Asia Democracy and Human Rights Award in 2008.

Kevin Rudd deserves kudos for his very clear argument in favour of same-sex marriage in response to a question from a Christian pastor on ABC TV's Q and A.

Yes, it's invalid. You have to number all the boxes.

Something for Kate at the Theatre Royal in Castlemaine on 24 May 2013. I have processed this set in black and white. I'll upload some color versions to flickr.

I took this photo at the dam out the back of the farm. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out considering it was taken with a mobile phone. A filter has been applied with the flickr app.

Lee Ping-hua (李秉樺) from Taiwan travelled around Japan taking photos of people holding a "No Nukes" poster. His work was popular on the backpackers.com.tw website and I found out about it from an article in the Taipei Times (http://goo.gl/lzUBV).

Today is World Day Against the Death Penalty. 141 countries are now abolitionist in law or in practice. 21 countries recorded executions in 2011, compared to 31 countries ten years ago. The world continues to move towards abolition. More information at http://www.worldcoalition.org.

I recently moved to the Brunswick area. I did a bit of research about local bike shops and found that Samson Cycles had some good reviews. I took my ten year old Trek in for a service. It's a good bike but I hadn't been ridden much for a few years and needed a bit of a tune up. They did a great job with the service and it now rides like new! While Samson may not look quite as flashy as some other bike shops I believe you can trust it to provide quality service at a reasonable price.
