I've just returned from Canberra, where Immigration Minister Scott Morrison appeared before the Human Rights Commission's inquiry into children in detention.

You might have already heard the news that the Minister plans to release 150 children under the age of 10 from detention by the end of the year. This is great news for the 150 young children and their families, who will soon be released from closed detention and into the community on bridging visas.

Nil Desperandum

Nil Desperandum by Gray

We are being kept alive by a system that's killing us. If this situation is acceptable; fine, but many others wish to know why this is happening and how to deal with it. The following is a generalised explanation of the problem and some suggestions on a resolution.

The term 'debt-system' has a less than propitious ring to it so we've called it Capitalism and in some nations it's Communism; however, they are financially synonymous; their method of creating money is the same.

He said the Forrest reforms did not displace the welfare safety-net system but rather built “a new opportunity staircase as an alternative pathway for individuals and families to climb out of disadvantage and into the advantages enjoyed by their fellow Australians”.

Carpetbaggers and corruption – time for anti-carpetbagger laws; tell them to nick off

Gerry Georgatos - courtesy of The National Indigenous Times and The Stringer - There was great hope for the reclamation of land rights following Mapoon, Yirrkala, Lake Tyers, Wave Hill and Aboriginal Tent Embassy.
