My poem, Burn, Australia, burn, published by Blackfulla Revolution

    Blackfulla Revolution have published my poem, Burn, Australia, burn. They say: This beautiful poem does not mean that the writer hopes the country will actually combust. He means quite the opposite. Fire is the bringer of new growth. Aboriginal people used it to bring fresh young grass to the plains, where they could […]

Australia Day: Changing the date changes nothing

Changing the date will not resolve anything without a Treaty, recognition of sovereignty and paying the rent, I write in Independent Australia.

The wars that truly defined Australia

This is from the Sovereign Union Facebook page WE WON’T LET YOU FORGET Over 500 nations of peoples were slaughtered or displaced using savage weaponry, poisons, germ warfare and filthy trickery, in the bloodbaths that continued for over 150 years by the greedy invading savages. The frontier wars were carried out in such inhuman ways […]

To burn or not to burn?: The Australian flag on Invasion Day

The Australian flag on Invasion Day: To burn or not to burn?

Despite burning the Australian flag not being a crime, a heavy-handed police reaction has helped the authorities and the media to vilify and prosecute peaceful Australia Day protesters in Sydney, I write in Independent Australia​.

The Northern Territory Right Royal Whitewash

I write in Independent Australia on Monday that ‘Turnbull’s snap decision to call a Royal Commission into juvenile detention is now looking like a complete whitewash.’ I say among other things: ‘Is there a solution? Yes, I believe there is. Our mass actions can change the world. United, we can fight back. The history of the fight for civil rights in the U.S., for basic democratic rights in South Africa, for freedom from colonialism in much of the world, shows that negotiating with the oppressor will not win change. We have to defeat those who oppress us or make the costs for them too great to go on with the old ways.’

Just another atrocity in the Northern Territory

The Don Dale abuse, while horrific, is just another atrocity to add to a long list of systemic oppression endured by Indigenous Australians, I write in Independent Australia. Let’s ask Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people what their solutions are. In among their specific suggestions will be solutions for the overall, systemic problems. A treaty. Sovereignty. Paying the rent.’ To read the whole article in Independent Australia click here. NT Detention: Just another atrocity
