A fair media - let no threat get in the way

‚ÄúIt is not enough for journalists to see themselves as mere messengers without understanding the hidden agendas of the message and the myths that surround it,‚ÄĚ said John Pilger.

South Africa, 20 years after Apartheid, doing better than Australia

by Gerry Georgatos - May 11th, 2013
Australia incarcerates its Aboriginal youth at the world‚Äôs highest rates, it imprisons one in 14 Western Australian Aboriginal adult males and it removes one in 14 children from Western Australian Aboriginal families into the care of the State, and for Aboriginal peoples the whole of the Northern Territory is a prison built brick by brick by the Commonwealth, and this prison is loosely known as the ‚ÄėIntervention‚Äô.

Since 1992, the rate of Aboriginal incarceration in Australia has grown 14 times faster than that of non-Aboriginal incarceration.

Most of the gas will be exported.

The shale gas deposits of the Canning Basin are among the richest in the world.
