Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)



The Australian government: opening the borders for Greek fascists

According to the ABC, two Greek fascists and members of the European Parliament, Eleftherios Synadinos and Georgios Epitideios, are planning to come to Australia to raise awareness of and funds for the Greek Nazi Party, Golden Dawn.

Operation Sovereign Borders stops innocent people who are fleeing war, murder and rape but Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison won’t stop fascists coming here. Says it all really.

Morrison has however denied entry to Sri Lankan unionists. According to an AMWU press release, the Sri Lankan Secretary of the Free Trade Zones and General Services Employees Union (FTZGSEU), and two factory worker, recently laid off by Ansell,  an Australian company with major manufacturing operations in Sri Lanka, were denied VISAs because they weren’t ‘wealthy enough’. They might suddenly de-camp in Australia, although the real reason is political. The Abbott Government don’t want unionists critical of the Sri Lankan government and an Australian company there exposing the truth about Sri Lanka.

Maybe they aren’t wealthy enough because Ansell sacked them? It comes as no surprise that an Australian government that attacks workers and the poor here does the same to poor workers wanting to come to Australia to spread the word about an Australian company’s rotten treatment of its workers.
