Australia has an opportunity to champion LGBTI rights globally "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Australian Government has an opportunity to play a critical role in addressing the violence and discrimination lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex people face across the globe, the Human Rights Law Centre told the UN Human Rights Council today.

The Independent Expert on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Victor Madrigal-Borloz tabled the first report since taking over the mandate, in which he called violence and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender diversity a scourge on the world which countries must acknowledge.

Lee Carnie, Lawyer at the Human Rights Law Centre, delivered a statement to the Human Rights Council highlighting Australias role.

LGBT people worldwide face violence and discrimination, exclusion and marginalisation in every corner of the globe. The international community must take a strong stand against prejudice and hatred, and work towards removing laws in the countries which still, unbelievably, criminalise homosexuality.

A number of states who strongly opposed the mandate were notably silent today, and China stated its opposition to all forms of discrimination and violence but called on the international community to respect traditional beliefs and avoid imposing values on others.

In contrast, the Australian Government strongly supported the mandate, spoke out against stigmatisation and hatred of LGBTI people and stated that [t]raditional cultural values must not be used to justify the denial of human rights.

Australia has taken a strong stand on the rights of LGBT people on the international stage for a number of years, with bipartisan support, and now that Australia has a seat on the UN Human Rights Council, the Australian Government has an opportunity to be a champion for LGBTI people who face violence and persecution worldwide, said Lee Carnie.

The UN also heard that the Australian Government needs to address inequality faced by LGBTI people on its own shores.

While there has been significant progress in Australia on issues such as marriage equality, Australias record on medically unnecessary surgeries performed on intersex infants needs closer examination. And trans and gender diverse people are still waiting on much needed birth certificate reform so they can access identification documents that reflect who they are, said Lee Carnie.

We need stronger protections from the hate speech and hate crimes which spiked dur...

Have humans been sailing the seas for a million years? "IndyWatch Feed National"

Have humans been sailors for a million years? IT WASN'T supposed to end this way. The 23-metre-long Nale Tasih 1, made with Stone Age tools and materials, was meant to recreate one of the truly epic prehistoric journeys: the first human crossing from Indonesia to Australia some 65,000 years ago. The voyage, in 1998, should have taken more than a week, but water sloshing around the crew's feet on the first day was a clear sign. The team had to tow the doomed raft back to shore. The very first humans to travel the oceans would have faced a daunting task, both physical and mental. By attempting to recreate their voyages, experimental archaeologists are helping to define the scale of that challenge. The Nale Tasih 1 expedition, however, was meant to help prove a grander theory. Its leaders say humans have been building and using watercraft to reach new lands for the best part of a million years. In other words, early humans - potentially including Neanderthals, Denisovans and Homo erectus - weren't diehard landlubbers. They were mariners. It is still a minority view, but one with profound implications. The ancient mariners theory could completely change our perspective on how early humans behaved and communicated with each other.

John Pilger: Its Time to Bring Julian Assange Home to Australia "IndyWatch Feed National"

The persecution of Julian Assange must end. Or it will end in tragedy.

The Australian government and prime minister Malcolm Turnbull have a historic opportunity to decide which it will be.

They can remain silent, for which history will be unforgiving. Or they can act in the interests of justice and humanity and bring this remarkable Australian citizen home.

Assange does not ask for special treatment. The government has clear diplomatic and moral obligations to protect Australian citizens abroad from gross injustice: in Julians case, from a gross miscarriage of justice and the extreme dangers that await him should he walk out of the Ecuadorean embassy in London unprotected.

We know from the Chelsea Manning case what he can expect if a U.S. extradition warrant is successful a United Nations Special Rapporteur called it torture.

I know Julian Assange well; I regard him as a close friend, a person of extraordinary resilience and courage. I have watched a tsunami of lies and smears engulf him, endlessly, vindictively, perfidiously; and I know why they smear him.

In 2008, a plan to destroy both WikiLeaks and Assange was laid out in a top secret document dated March 8, 2008. The authors were the Cyber Counter-intelligence Assessments Branch of the U.S. Defence Department. They described in detail how important it was to destroy the feeling of trust that is WikiLeaks center of gravity.

This would be achieved, they wrote, with threats of exposure [and] criminal prosecution and an unrelenting assault on his reputation. The aim was to silence and criminalize WikiLeaks and its editor and publisher. It was as if they planned a war on a single human being and on the very principle of freedom of speech.

Their main weapon would be a personal smear. Their shock troops would be enlisted in the media those who are meant to keep the record straight and tell us the truth.

The irony is that no one told these journalists what to do. I call them Vichy journalists after the Vichy government that served and enabled the German occupation of wartime France.

Last October, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation journalist Sarah Ferguson interviewed Hillary Clinton, over whom she fawned as the icon for your generation.

This was the same Clinton who threatened to obliterate totally Iran and, who, as U.S. Secretary of State in 2011, was one of the instigators of the invasion and destruction of Libya as....

Australia hit with extreme cold front as snow hits and people are warned of dangerous conditions "IndyWatch Feed National"

PLUMMETING temperatures have caused freezing conditions and snow across the country - and more severe weather is coming. A FREEZING cold snap has blanketed parts of the country in fluffy white snow. Australians have packed on the layers as icy chills continue to blow across southeast Australia thanks to the cold front that's been pushing through the Great Australian Bight since Wednesday. Severe weather warnings have been issued for parts of New South Wales today as strong gusty winds with cold temperatures and showers are forecast. The Bureau of Meteorology said a complex low over the Tasman Sea was directing a "vigorous westerly airstream" over NSW ahead of a south to south-westerly change which would move along the coast today. Damaging winds averaging 60 to 65km/h are predicted with peak gusts of more than 90km/h. A south to south-westerly wind change is forecast to move along the coast, reaching the Hunter coast by late morning. Showers may bring damaging wind gusts along the coastal fringe in areas including Gosford, Newcastle, Sydney and Wollongong.

In Search of Space "IndyWatch Feed National"

In the introduction to In Search of Space, Journeys in Wild Places, Ross Brownscombe points out that nature writing which explores the poetry and magic of wild places has not developed into a strong tradition in Australia. Compared to North America and the UK this is certainly correct, and true writers in this genre are few and far between.

This book is a great addition to the library of nature writing that Australia has produced.

In the introduction to In Search of Space, Journeys in Wild Places, Ross Brownscombe points out that nature writing which explores the poetry and magic of wild places has not developed into a strong tradition in Australia. Compared to North America and the UK this is certainly correct, and true writers in this genre are few and far between. Some of the finest in the tradition here are probably authors of fiction rather than more conventional non-fiction nature writers, people like Richard Flannigan and Tim Winton, who develop landscape as characters in the way they develop the humans in their stories.

There are, of course, a growing number of authors from indigenous traditions who speak about and for Country. I love the quote from David Mowaljarlai, repeated by Tim Winton in Island Home, who sees the world as everything standing up alive. When Im high on a mountain looking out over country, my life force (Unggurr) flows out from inside my body and I fall open with happiness. Despite our shared love for land, their perspective is going to be different to an Anglo author. Whereas Country is peopled and storied for many Aboriginal and Islander people, us Australians of European linage often seek refuge in the blank space that wild spaces represent. We go into them to find adventure and challenge, solitude, recreation, perspective, spiritual guidance and, sometimes all these things. Our relationship is profoundly different because we must create something from what is essentially a blank canvas when it comes to culture. Trying to compare a book on nature writing by an Anglo man with an indigenous author in any meaningful way is beyond me in a short review so I wont try, beyond noting that all Australia is indigenous land, even those places that we have declared wild or wilderness, with the few exceptions of orphan country, land with no people left with connection to or responsibility for that place.

Farewell to the seal woman: a tribute to Beverley Farmer "IndyWatch Feed National"

Grease-black, the Californian sea lion moves through the pool like a slick of oil pushed by a strong current. Propelled by rear flippers in a momentous leap, a halo of water spins from its glossy head, and, as the awkward mound flops down, a large splash rises to an elated chorus of laughter. A cool bead hits my arm. The smell in the air is cold fish mixed with the scent left in a room after a dog has been bathed.

Federal Newspoll Records Page "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

Introduction (June 2018)

This weekend, the Coalition government under PM Malcolm Turnbull trailed on two-party preferred vote for a 34th consecutive Newspoll, an all-time outright record.

As there has been so much interest in federal Newspoll records this year I thought I would start a Newspoll records page, a resource page which I will update and expand as time permits.  Some of the material has previously been published on the Newspoll Wikipedia page, which I fixed up after finding it contained a large number of errors caused by confusion between satisfaction scores and Better Prime Minister.

Suggestions for new categories are welcome, as are corrections.

This may seem like a very nerdy cricket-statsy kind of page full of numbers without much connection to what they mean.  If there is a conclusion I wish to be drawn from all this it is that drawing predictive conclusions from record feats in Newspoll is difficult.  The records are awash with cases of impressive results polled by leaders who turned out to be flops, and poor results polled by leaders who were unexpected winners.  As I commence this page (June 2018) it's especially important to note that changes in Newspoll methods have made long runs of similar results more likely, and dramatic poll-to-poll swings less so.  (This made PM Turnbull's choice of consecutive 2PP losses as a metric to justify removing PM Abbott especially unwise.)  As a result there are three currently ongoing record streaks, probably the most important of which favours Labor while two others favour the Coalition.  

History

The first Newspoll was released in November 1985.  In the early days Newspoll's regular federal series polled just primary votes for the parties and the satisfaction ratings of the leaders individually.  Better Prime Minister (often called "preferred prime minister" was polled in the leadup to the 1987 and 1990 elections, and then continuously from July 1991 (except possibly for three polls in July-August 1994, for which data are not on the old Newspoll site.)

Two-party preferred (2PP) estimates were published during campaigns from 1993 onwards, and then continuously from Nov-Dec 2002 onwards.  For other Newspolls it is possible to construct 2PP estimates using the primaries and the preference flows from previous elections, but because of rounding issues these are not necessarily exactly the same as the numbers Newspoll would have go...

"IndyWatch Feed National"

Contributed by Joe Montero

The exposure of Professor John Giesy, alleged to have been bribed by multinational 3M to falsify the science over the harmful effects of some of the chemicals that the company has been using, is a sad fall, for a man who chose to feather his own nest over honesty. When big money becomes too entangled with scientific research, objective investigation is going to be sacrificed for something much less noble than the pursuit of knowledge.

Professor Giesy had been credited for discovering toxic per- and poly-fluoroalkyl (PFAS) in the environment, and with helping to persuade chemical giant 3M Company to abandon their manufacture. Now he stands accused of doing the companys bidding.

This is not the first time something like this has happened. Scientists have been used over the years by of tobacco, oil and pharmaceutical companies,  because they wanted to bury information that might harm their operations.

Giesys case came out into the open, after the release of documents in the United States connected to a court case launched by the State of Minnesota and a $A1.15 billion legal settlement. they suggest, he was used to what 3M called its actions to command the science, and the scientific community was misled about the presence of chemicals in peoples blood.

Among other effects, it  studies into their link with cancer were undermined, and funds were helped into avenues more suitable to 3M.

For example, PFAS, which is a component of Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS), has been known to be harmful, as far back as 1997, according to one of the companys own data safety sheets. studies indicate that it compromises the immune  and metabolic regulation systems and is implicated in the development of bowel cancer.

PFOS is also widely used by 3M in Australia and can be found in Scotchgard and fire-fighting foams, paints, stain removers, pesticides, shampoo sand food packaging. They have not been banned and are still in use, even though some studies have kinked it.

In his testimony to the Minnesota case, Professor Philippe Grandjean of Harvard, observed that despite spending most of his career as a professor at public universities, Professor Giesy has a net worth of approximately $20 million. This massive wealth results at least in part from his long-term involvement with 3M for the purpose of suppressing independent scientific research

Professor Giesy has a consulting company that received payments from 3M between at least 199...

Transcript & Video: John Pilger in Sydney defends Assange exposes his persecutors "IndyWatch Feed National"

Good thing we transcribed the speech, because it has been removed from youtube! See below for what was in it.
John Pilger reminds us of the 'journalists' who let down Julian Assange whilst profiting from the information he released. He reminds us how far down journalism has sunk. He uses the term 'Vichy-journalism' to good effect.

Transcript of John Pilger's magnificent speech on why Julian Assange is being persecuted, who is responsible, and the mass media role

[Headings have been inserted by Candobetter.net editor.]

JOHN PILGER: Thank you for coming for Julian. And thank you to the SEP for organising this important rally. The persecution of Julian Assange must end. Or it will end in tragedy
The Australian government of Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull have a historic opportunity to decide which it will be. They can remain silent, for which history will be unforgiving. Or they can act in the interests of justice and humanity and bring this remarkable Australian citizen home. Julian does not seek special treatment. The Australian Government has clear diplomatic and moral obligations to protect its citizens abroad from gross injustice.In Julian's case, from a gross miscarriage of justice and the extreme danger that awaits him, should he walk out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London unprotected.

We know from the Chelsea Manning case what you in can expect if a US extradition warrant is successful. The United Nations has called it torture.

I know Julian well. I regard him as a close friend, a person of extraordinary resilience and courage. I've watched the tsunami of lies and smear engulf him endlessly, predictably, perfidiously, and I know why they smear him.

Yemeni Forces Destroy Saudi-backed Troops, Capture French Vessel [VIDEO] "IndyWatch Feed National"

Sanaa (GPA) Despite western media claims about coalition success, Yemeni resistance forces continue repelling advances in Hodeidah. In fact, resistance forces have destroyed dozens of coalition vehicles, cut off their supply routes, and captured a French vessel.

Ansarullah (aka. the Houthis), Yemens Army and Popular Committees, and allied groups have spent the last three years preparing for this very battle. These Yemeni forces are currently fending off Saudi, Sudanese, and Emirati troops, Saudi and Emirati paid mercenaries, Black Water (Academi) mercenaries from Australia, Colombia, and other countries, Emirati-backed Southern separatists, the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda, ISIS, and other troops allied with the Saudi coalition. The United States and France have both sent special forces and naval support to Yemen on Saudi Arabias behalf.

The United States, Canada, most of Europe, Egypt, Bahrain, and a slew of other countries provide military or diplomatic support to the Saudi coalition against Yemen.

Despite these efforts, Yemens Army and Popular Committees have successfully repelled many advances in the coalitions attempts to take the important port city of Hodeidah. Saudi-friendly mainstream outlets like BBC initially reported that the coalition had captured the strategic Hodeidah airport. This appears false, however...

Speeches at Free Julian Assange Rally - Sydney Town Hall - 17th June 2018 "IndyWatch Feed National"

Unfortunately, these speeches seem to have been removed from you tube and facebook at some time between 10.36am and 6pm. We do not know why. See article above this one for the transcript of John Pilger's excellent speech.
RALLIES ON TUESDAY 19 JUNE IN AUSTRALIA: Melbourne - outside the British Consulate 12-2PM (British Consulate General Melbourne, 17th Floor, 90 Collins St Melbourne). Will be attended by Julian's father, John Shipton and another young member of Julian's family and Shirley Shackleton. Brisbane - Vigil 4-6PM at the Ann Street Shrine of Remembrance opposite Central Station; Perth - 12PM-2PM at Forrest Chase.

The Socialist Equity Party should be applauded for having organised and recorded the June 17th protest speeches. We should not however forget that Julian Assange's work goes wider than worker protest. It goes to preventing globalist media, corporations and governments from taking away our rights as citizens of nations. The issues go to the nation itself and to the need for solidarity and communication between citizens, always, plus the recognition that Julian is one of us. This cause should be embraced by other forces as well as the Socialist Equity Party. Anyone who supports free speech, human and civil rights, and opposes war, should attend these protests and get others to attend with leaflets, posts to social media, and calls to talk-back radio etc.

Makeshift Eurydice memorial vandalised "IndyWatch Feed National"

MELBOURNE, AAP A makeshift memorial for murdered comedian Eurydice Dixon has been vandalised with offensive graffiti ahead of Mondays planned vigil.

Police say paint markings were found at the site of the memorial in Princes Park in Carlton during routine patrols about 3.50am on Monday.

A number of items were seized from the scene and the dog squad has been through the area, with the investigation ongoing.

Fire crews used high-pressure hoses to remove the offensive graffiti, painted next to the formal tributes in the park.

Vigil organiser, Megan Bridger-Darling was at a loss for words.

There is a level of anger in this city already. And for this to happen, on the day of her memorial, is absolutely galling, and insulting and deeply, deeply offensive, she told Nine Network.

Victorian senator Derryn Hinch said the vandalism was obscene on so many different levels.

Whoever did it, I hope they are found, identified, caught, charged and sent to jail. I really feel that, he told Seven Network.

Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young said whoever did it is an idiot.

So much so, they will be bragging to their mates about it. Only morons behave like this. Responsibility needs to be taken and needs to be called out, she told the Seven Network.

It comes as thousands of men and women are due to hold vigils across the country in tribute to Ms Dixon, five days after the 22-year-olds body was discovered on Princes Park soccer field at Carlton North, prompting an outpouring of grief and anger about violence against women.

We all should be able to walk home, whenever we want, wherever we want, and assume we will make it home safe, the organisers of Monday nights Reclaim Princes Park vigil posted on Facebook.

Our bodies are not there for taking. It is not up to us to keep ourselves safe when we know its up to men to choose not to inflict violence upon us.

Flooded Valleys And Burning Forests: The Global Face Of Renewable Energy (Part III) "IndyWatch Feed National"

Geoff Russell brings you the final story in a three-part series on the global renewable energy revolution. In Part I he looked at the animal and environment issues associated with the flooded river valleys and burning biomass that dominate renewable energy. Part II looked at wind, sunshine, storage and zoomed in to consider Australia.

 

The alternative

Globally, nuclear power, in case you were wondering, generates just over 2,000 terawatt-hours of electricity annually, about 8 times more than solar and more than double wind power.

Now lets run some basic numbers and compare the ecological impact of renewables with that of nuclear power.

First lets deal with the inevitable cry from people who are anti-nuclear without ever having thought much about it: Nuclear isnt clean, think about the mining and the waste!!!.

Mines? Nuclear power is miserly on mines. The amount of mining required for hydro, solar or wind is many times greater. The recent ACOLA report made this point, let me repeat the relevant graph from a previous article.

As you can see, nuclear requires minimal mining.

So why do so many people seem to think mining is some kind of nuclear achilles heel? Thats an interesting question. Ill try to answer it later. But the graph massively underestimates the mining required for renewables on two fronts; it ignores mining for batteries and it ignores mining for all the extra transmission lines needed by wind and solar. Ive dealt with the relative ease of nuclear waste handling many times in the past most recently here.

But mining is a minor issue compared to the massive habitat destruction associated with renewables.

Hydro-electricity, as weve seen produces roughly 4,000 terawatt hours per year globally from reservoirs covering 343,000 square kilometres, so, using global averages,...

Bringing Julian Assange Home: John Pilger "IndyWatch Feed National"

Tomorrow marks the 6th anniversary of Wikileaks founder Julian Assanges application for political asylum with Ecuador, and his effective house arrest in London. John Pilger take up the case, again.

The persecution of Julian Assange must end. Or it will end in tragedy.

The Australian government and prime minister Malcolm Turnbull have an historic opportunity to decide which it will be.

They can remain silent, for which history will be unforgiving. Or they can act in the interests of justice and humanity and bring this remarkable Australian citizen home.

Assange does not ask for special treatment. The government has clear diplomatic and moral obligations to protect Australian citizens abroad from gross injustice: in Julians case, from a gross miscarriage of justice and the extreme danger that awaits him should he walk out of the Ecuadorean embassy in London unprotected.

We know from the Chelsea Manning case what he can expect if a US extradition warrant is successful a United Nations Special Rapporteur called it torture.

I know Julian Assange well; I regard him as a close friend, a person of extraordinary resilience and courage. I have watched a tsunami of lies and smear engulf him, endlessly, vindictively, perfidiously; and I know why they smear him.

In 2008, a plan to destroy both WikiLeaks and Assange was laid out in a top secret document dated 8 March, 2008. The authors were the Cyber Counter-intelligence Assessments Branch of the US Defence Department. They described in detail how important it was to destroy the feeling of trust that is WikiLeaks centre of gravity.

A major step forward has been made on the Korean issue "IndyWatch Feed National"

Contributed from Victoria

Never mind the headlines about the Trump-Kim meeting.  They reveal very little of what is really going on. Nor is the issue the photo shoots, which all too often are used to divert from what is important.

This is a deadly serious matter. Part of the trouble, is that after years of demonising North Korea on the one hand and presenting its leaders as buffoons on the other, the caricature gets in the way of the reality.

North Korea has been presented as being a threat to the world. They arent an economic threat.  The North Korean military does not exist outs its borders. Just how this so-called threat manifests itself, has never really been spelt out. Whether one approves of the internal politics or not is something else, and this should not distract from the need to secure the peace.

True, the North have some nuclear missiles that can be fired. It would be better if they didnt exist. But this too should be seen within its context.

As a colony, Koreans suffered a long period of brutality. The Korean War in the 1950s was horrendous. More bombs were dropped in the North than during the whole Second World War. Just about every family lost people. This is going to leave scars.

What has made it even worse in the long-run, is that the war was not conclusive and the stalemate has lasted up till now. This is for over half a century.  A continuous war footing has been in place. The South has been  heavily bankrolled by the United States and able ride the storm more easily than the North, which has paid a heavy price in terms of its economic and political development.

The United States has maintained a huge military presence south of the border. This has been met on the other side. Both have aimed nuclear weapons at each other.  It is not hard to see that to lower the tension, the years of militarisation must come to an end. This goal that has not been possible till now. Changing this, needs both sides to stand down. Given the history, this is not going to happen, unless both sides do it together.

North Korea has been calling for this for and joint denuclearisation for years.  It has been the  United states side that has till now refused to back away. This is a little fact that has been ignored by much of the  West and its media, which has opted for maintaining the pressure fr one side to stand down. North Korea happens to border China and Russia, and has therefore seen as strategically important.

Continuation of hostility over many years has fed the toxic atmosphere that has created the worlds most dangerous hot spot.

Recent developments have pulled the other way. Chief among them, is a greater willingness of both parts of Korea to move further along the road towards reconciliation. The resu...

Aussie troops killed Afghan amputee, drank beer from fake limb, and other questionable moral judgements "IndyWatch Feed National"

Australia's elite Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) team has been found to have committed a string of atrocities while on mission in Afghanistan nearly a decade ago; and the "Nazi flag" incident appears to be just the tip of the iceberg. In one instance back in 2009, reported by Sydney-based Fairfax Media, which conducted a six-month investigation into alleged Australian military war crimes in Afghanistan, soldiers killed an Afghan amputee as they were raiding Urozgan province and took his artificial limb to their base to use it as a drinking vessel. Comment: The prosthetic leg was then taken as a souvenir and brought back to Perth to be used as a novelty beer drinking vessel. In another no less horrendous case, two senior soldiers first plotted and then forced a "rookie" troop to kill an unarmed elderly detainee, a Taliban suspect, thereby marking the young soldier's combat debut. According to Special Forces sources, cited by Fairfax, the victim posed no threat after being brutally knocked out. The soldiers involved in the atrocities committed on Afghan soil have not been named by the media. The hair-raising details came to light around the time when Australia's prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, blasted personnel of the same high-profile squadron who were caught on camera waving a swastika flag from their patrol vehicle.

Turnbull Government set to begin second session as member of UN Human Rights Council "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Turnbull Governments second session as a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council, the UN body responsible for protecting the rights and dignity of people all over the world, will begin in Geneva tomorrow.

Key focusses for the session will be the ongoing atrocities in Syria and Myanmar. Reports on violence and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, racism, violence against women and the human rights responsibilities of businesses will also feature at the session.

Daniel Webb, Director of Legal Advocacy at the Human Rights Law Centre, is in Geneva to scrutinise the role the Australian Government plays on the world stage and to ensure transparency and accountability for the Governments actions domestically.

"Just saying over and over again that you respect human rights doesnt make it true. If we want a world where all people are treated fairly and humanely - where victims of cruelty and injustice arent just abandoned to suffer at the hands of dictators and military regimes then we need Governments like ours to play a principled and constructive role on the UN Human Rights Council, said Mr Webb.

Australias first session on the Council, in March this year, was dominated by strong criticism of its indefinite detention of refugees on Manus and Nauru and what an independent UN expert described as the Turnbull Governments astonishing anti-democratic slide. While the Australian Government spoke out strongly against the Syrian Governments continuing atrocities against civilians, it offered only a weak response to the unfolding humanitarian crisis in Myanmar. 

"The Rohingya families being burned alive in their homes in Myanmar. The children dying in attacks in Syria. The journalists rotting in prisons for speaking truth to power. They all need Governments like ours to form part of the UNs principled spine, not to gnaw away at the foundation of human rights with mealy-mouthed words and unprincipled actions, said Mr Webb.

Straight-talking, principled action and practising what we preach are absolutely vital to our Government being able to play the role the international community needs us to.

Australia was elected for a three-year term on the Council in October last year. This Council session runs from 18 June - 6 July. The Human Rights Law Centre will attend every day of the Council session and provide regular updates on the Australian Governments actions.

The Council session can be livestreamed here: ...

Australia vulnerable to full-blown trade war as US-China tension deepens "IndyWatch Feed National"

 

Australia is overexposed to a full-blown trade war between the US and China, business leaders have warned, as the Trump administration increases sanctions on Chinese products.

The Turnbull government moved quickly to put itself at the front of negotiations on Saturday after it was revealed a 25 per cent tariff on $US50 billion ($67 billion) worth of 1102 Chinese imports would take effect from July 6.

Foreign Minster Julie Bishop urged the worlds two largest economies to take their dispute to the World Trade Organisation before it hit global standards of living and economic growth.

Free and open trade and investment is of great benefit to our country and the world, she said. Its a position that we have made very clear to our American friends and well continue to promote it.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said he would not stop lobbying for free trade despite the fifth hit to the dominant world economic order in as many months.

My job as your prime minister is to ensure more Australians have well-paid jobs, he said. Thats why were supporting free trade; we dont give up on it.

Labor trade spokesman Jason Clare said the signs were ominous.

This is not good  no one wins from a trade war, he said. The US and China make up almost half the worlds gross domestic product. If this escalated into a full-blown trade war, everyone will suffer including us.

The Chinese Commerce Ministry struck back at the US immediately on Saturday, stating it would fight back strongly against the short-sightedness of the US, by imposing an additional 25 per cent tariff on 659 US goods worth $US50 billion.

Industrial machinery, communications technology, orange juice, whiskey, beef, poultry and soybeans are among the products in the middle of the trade battle, which comes just weeks after the US slapped tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

The crackdown is the next step in US President Donald Trumps election pledge to protect US manufacturing jobs. He has also accused China of undermining Silicon Valley-produced technology and intellectual property.

July In Your Patch "IndyWatch Feed National"


When you look outside this time of year the last thing you feel like doing is standing out in the cold, wet and windy weather, especially if you live in the cooler areas. Dont let this put you off. There is so much to do in the garden and a lot more to do in the garden shed. Get off the couch and put on the thermals, the beanie, a coat and your gumboots and warm yourself up with some winter garden love.

Of course, the following is just a rough guide, and many of you will find your situation varies from the above listing due to microclimates created in your garden, location in relation to your nearest major city, extremes of weather and garden type. But the one thing that remains the same for all zones and regions is this: improve your soil by adding organic matter, mulch and no matter the season, we can all garden more sustainably all year round.

Tool Time
Why not head out to the shed, and sharpen, clean, oil and maintain your garden tools. Sounds tedious, but its really rewarding, and will save you cash in the long run. Practicing tool hygiene will prevent the spread of disease.

Mulch your beds
Top up mulch on your veggie patches, herb gardens and ornamental beds. Choose sustainable, low environmental impact mulch, one that will enrich your soil as it breaks down. If in the southern states try to avoid Sugar Cane as it would have a high carbon footprint due to transport.

Green Manure
Green manure crops are good to go now improve that dormant veggie patch. In cooler to temperate areas you can use crops like like faba beans or field peas and for warmer areas try mung beans. Remember to chop and drop them before they flower.

Pruning & Weeding
Pruning and weeding is a great job to do at this time of year. Deciduous fruit trees love a big old haircut now, except your apricot!

Cool to Cold Areas

Low temperatures for extended periods of time (all of Tasmania, most of Victoria, the southern highlands of NSW, the ACT and a tiny southern bit of SA)

Its bare root season! Get your deciduous fruit trees in now, including apples, pears, plums, peaches and nectarines. Deciduous exotic trees can also be planted now.

Theres still a bit happening in the veggie patch, especially if you love your brassicas, you could try spinach, carrots, sweet peas, broad beans, coriander and peas.

Temperate Areas...

Speaking out about war crimes - Julian Assange "IndyWatch Feed National"



If you knew that a government routinely covered up soldiers massacring civilians as if they were shooting them in a video game, would you stay silent?

If you knew that 66,081 of the 109,000 recorded deaths in the illegal war on Iraq from US military were civilians, would you stay silent?

If you found out that a government was spying on the citizens of every nation in the world and passing the information onto corporations and the military, would you stay silent?

Julian Assange did not stay silent. Courageously, he published the documents exposing murder and illegal surveillance, passed on to him by US. soldier, Private Manning.

These documents were also accessed and published in whole or in part by many other reporting outlets, including The Guardian, Der Spiegel, The New York Times, El Pas, Al-Akhbar, Svenska Dagbladet, Aftonbladet, Verdens Gang, Aftenposten, Politiken, NRC, RTL Nieuws, Die Welt,and Fairfax Media. But those media are not being punished.

The United States Government was the government involved in these war crimes and illegal global surveillance. It controlled the mainstream and corporate press and was incensed that Wikileaks, an alternative press, had the moral conviction to out it for its crimes. Its revenge was to engineer Julian Assange's illegal detention in the Ecuadorian Embassy from August 2012.

Using trumped up charges, the UK and Swedish Governments colluded with the United States so that Assange was likely to be extradited to the United States on unknown and probably illegal grounds if he left his place of asylum. The United States has the highest rates of imprisonment in the world and its private and military prisons are known to be brutal and unaccountable.

Assange did not committed any crime by publishing material from a foreign state, any more than have the newspapers who also published this. His arbitrary detention has been denounced by the United Nations. His access to internet, telephone and visitors have all been withdrawn recently and a change of government in Ecuador threatens his continued asylum in its embassy. The Australian Government needs to act to bring Assange home to safety, in accordance with UN rulings.

Will you speak up for Julian Assange,....

Alan Jones paedophile grooming boys? "IndyWatch Feed National"

Front page of The Daily Mirror December 6, 1988
 
Sydney radio station 2GBs Alan Jones sent love letters to school boys, had boys in his room late at night and perved on them in the shower when he was a teacher at The Kings School in Sydney in the early 1970s. This behaviour led to Alan Jones forced resignation in 1973.

That type of conduct would be considered grooming today and the police would be called for sure.

And if it was anyone but Alan Jones the matter of the forced resignation by The Kings School would have been given a start at the current Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

Again in 1988, only a matter of hours after getting off a Qantas plane in London, Alan Jones was arrested in a toilet for Outraging Public Decency.

Alan Jones is the lowest of the low, why has he never been charged with grooming?

Aphids "IndyWatch Feed National"

Hi, my name is: Aphid

Hobbies: Multiplying!!! Sucking sap; exuding honeydew; hanging out with ants which are attracted to the honeydew, encouraging sooty mould and passing viruses from plant to plant.  Youll often find yellow patches from these viruses on infected leaves.

Likes: Yellow flowers, warm moist environments, succulent new growth of just about every kind of plant (I really love roses, heaps of veggies, annuals and citrus trees).

Dislikes: Chives, coriander, garlic, onions, petunias and radishes. Soaps like home made chilli soap, neem oil (Azadarachtin).  Dont get along with Ladybirds or Lacewings, Braconid Wasps, Hover Flies or Praying Mantis! Oh, and I hate sticky traps!  These predatory insects seem to be attracted by companion plants like Alyssum, Yarrow and Dill.

Youll know youve met me when: all your plants new growth is seriously malformed; there are heaps of ants on the stems or plant parts are sticky from my honeydew. Oh, and yucky black sooty mold soon appears!

 

Breaking up aint hard to do if you:

  • Squash me and my mates by hand. Its icky but effective! Or pay your neighbours kids to do the deed- they love squashing us!  In my death throes I emit a chemical signal that makes the other aphids take off quick smart!
  • Stop my ant friends from coming around by growing tansy or other ant repellent plants! Ants tend to our every need and protect us from garden bullies. Without their protection we are very vulnerable to being eaten!
  • Irritate me by putting a flattened square of aluminium foil around the base of plants to bounce light on the undersides of leaves.
  • Spray me with a home made garlic or chilli soap. Or make an insecticidal soap (2ml liquid Castille soap per 100 ml water) and target the underside of...

FixedIt: If shes 14 its not sex "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Herald Sun reported that 28 year old Sandeep Singh pleaded guilty to charges of possessing child pornography, inviting a minor to be concerned in child pornography, and sexual penetration of a child. The victim of his crimes was a 14 year old girl.

Despite the guilty plea, the Herald Suns headline still described Singhs grooming, sexual assault and exploitation of a child as sex and included an implication she was consenting to his crimes with the idea she was being showered with freebies.

The article describes the 14 year old girl as begging him to stop and his attacks on her. This is not sex.

Children cannot have sex. Sex requires consent, children cannot legally or morally give consent so it is not sex. Rape, sexual abuse and sex are not the same thing and they can not be used interchangeably in headlines.

Here are the reasons this matters, in every case, with every headline.

The victim impact statements from child abuse trials are harrowing, a testament to the lifelong injuries suffered by people who were sexually abused as children. They are the litany of drug addition, alcohol dependence, gambling problems, depression, crippling anxiety, relationship breakdowns, suicidal thoughts, shame, self-hatred, mistrust of others and long term emotional damage so common in survivors of child sexual abuse. Children who have been abused are also significantly more likely to suffer further abuse, both as children and as adults.

The effects of sexual abuse of children then lead to the cycle of horror where victims become unreliable witnesses to their own abuse.

When the media, as it so persistently does, labels sexual abuse of children as child sex, we are weakening the public understanding of the extent and effect of such abuse. This has serious effects. A study conducted for the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse found that juries who have a better understanding of the facts of child sexual abuse are less likely to make mistakes in their assessment of evidence given in court.

Children cannot have sex with adults. Sex requires consent and children, by definition, cannot give consent, so its not sex. Its rape, its child abuse, its sexual abuse, its any number of terms that accurately...

Dr Hal Puthoff and the Soviet project "Thread-3" "IndyWatch Feed National"

Background

A constant part of the message, that Luis Elizondo has been spreading about what he refers to as the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) is that, if the phenomena itself is not a threat; then a threat might exist if the Russians or Chinese learn the secrets of the phenomena, in terms of military applications that might follow this discovery.

This theme of a threat from the Russians was repeated in the recent speech by Dr Hal Puthoff at the  Society for Scientific Exploration's recent conference, in Las Vegas, Dr Hal Puthoff mentioned that "...the Soviet Union had a massive program also trying to get to the root of all this...of course they had the same concerns we did. Is there a threat from the phenomena or might the Americans make headway before us and that be a threat?" In his talk, Puthoff referred to a document about a Soviet research program named "Thread-3." I searched around to see what I could find out about this Project. 

Research


The October 1993 edition of the MUFON Journal carried an article titled 'Soviet UFO Secrets' authored by one Bryan Gresh (The English Flying Saucer Review, volume 39, number 2, Summer 1994 also carried a reprint of the MUFON Journal article.) It is a report based on a trip, undertaken in March 1993, to Russia with a view to seek out 'a new layer of information about Russian research into the phenomenon.'

They interviewed a retired Russian Colonel, Boris Sokolov, who between 1980 and 1990 ran a UFO study program. 'Solokov says the military was interested in UFOs for a number of reasons, including the belief if the secrets of the UFO could be discovered, the Soviets would be able to win the competition against prospective enemies by incorporating what extraterrestrials knew of velocity, materials - and stealth. Sokolov told us the search for stealth technology was prompted by the capabilities of UFOs.'

Gresh's article then moves on to 'The Ministry of Defense official who is in charge of the current program...we can give the name of the study 'Thred-3...' In the documents obtained by Gresh and Knapp, there is mention of sightings by Cosmonauts.

I reached out to the UFO community to s...

Equipment: Comfort & Ease of Living. "IndyWatch Feed National"


Equipment: Comfort & Ease of Living.
Choosing the right equipment for wilderness living is important, especially if you are carrying that equipment on your back. It is important to choose equipment that is sustainable, which many modern survival gadgets are not. So you really do need to give it some thought before you start collecting gear.
The ease & comfort that you achieve in your wilderness survival depends solely on the equipment you choose. Your survival per se depends mostly on your wilderness living skills. If you have the right skills, you can survive in the wilderness without any bought equipment, BUT, it will be a hard life & a lot of work. Choose the wrong equipment, equipment that is not necessary & not sustainable, & you will finish up living a Stone Age lifestyle!
Here are some questions you need to ask yourself before purchasing or choosing items of equipment:
Is it sustainable? If it breaks can I repair it easily? Do I really need this or am I choosing it because it looks cool? What purpose will this serve? Can I use it for more than just one task? Is this suitable for the environment I am expecting to live in; example, jungle or forest/machete or tomahawk? (a tomahawk is more versatile than a machete). How versatile is this shelter option? If I choose a sleeping bag over wool blankets will the bag keep me warm when wet? In an emergency how easily can I escape from a sleeping bag? Do I need a firearm primarily for defence or hunting? How long will the ammunition last if I use a modern firearm for defence & hunting? Am I likely to get into a firefight? Will I be travelling alone? If I am travelling with a partner, how can I divide some of the equipment to our best advantage?

War Powers Cases, Part 1: Captain Nathan Smiths Case "IndyWatch Feed National"

by Erin Smith McAdams

Introduction to This Series, by Mary W Maxwell

There are at least two war-powers cases in appeals today. One is mine, Maxwell v. Trump (Case 18-1127) at the First Circuit, in Boston. The other is a fascinating one by Captain Nathan Smith at the DC Circuit Court in Washington, DC.. His case began as Smith v. Obama, but after the January 2017 Inauguration it was changed automatically to Smith v. Trump.

This series will include a review of some of the cases and principles, but to begin we are reprinting here an article published at Huffington Post by Erin Smith McAdams, the sister of Captain Nathan Smith. It first appeared in 2016 but was updated at Huffington Post on May 11, 2017. I should point out in all previous cases by soldiers, the soldier opposed the war (e.g., Vietnam). Captain Smith supports the war.

Here is Erin Smith McAdams article with its original title: My Brothers Challenge to the Undeclared War Against ISIS

I come from a tradition of military service. My parents served full careers in the Navy. My grandfather served a career that included fighter missions during World War II; my grandmother served as a Navy nurse. I served four years as a naval officer, and my brother, Army Captain Nathan Smith, currently serves at command headquarters in K...
