More lies from The Australian

If all this setting upon and intimidation and violence at the Invasion Day demonstration are true, why have there been no arrests? Maybe because the police on the ground – not liars sitting hundreds of miles away – know the truth. There was no violence by protesters. If all this setting upon and intimidation and violence at the Invasion Day demonstration are true, why have there been no arrests? Maybe because the police on the ground – not liars sitting hundreds of miles away – know the truth. There was no violence by protesters.

But don’t let racist stories as part of a racist agenda of continued dispossession and genocide of Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders stand in the way of the truth.

These two disgraceful articles are just a further indication to me that racism is systemic and entrenched in Australian society and its institutions, including the media.

A good first step is telling the truth. As George Orwell put it, that is a revolutionary act.

But in the end only a mass struggle of Aboriginal people and their millions of supporters can challenge the systemic racism of Australian capitalism.
