• AUSTRALIA SAYS 'NO' TO FACIAL RECOGNITION SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS.
    The installation of these cameras without the consent of the Australian public, is a breach of Governmental power and a serious violation of our human rights to privacy. Being tracked, analysed and our personal data being stored in a cloud for the access of authorities to use as they will, is not only an attack on our human rights to privacy and freedom, but it is also a direct attack on the human psyche and human mental health. The citizens of Australia have never authorised the use of our tax payer dollars to fund “facial recognition technology” to be used against us and our children as a bio metric data collection for physical and behavioural identification. We do not call for a prison system society where every one is examined and where our privacy is invaded while we go about our day. Australia SAYS 'NO'- We DO NOT CONSENT to 'Face Recognition Surveillance Cameras' in our society'.

  • Permanently remove Jocko: the little black boy statue in Maitland NSW
    With the global Black Lives Matter movement in the media at the moment this has also put the spotlight on other forms of institutional racism in Australia. For me this has led to my own personal reflection about racism and the effect it has had on my own family and community. For several years I have complained to the Maitland Council about a racist statue in Maitland called “jocko: the little black boy”. Pic below. Apparently it has been around since the 1800’s and was once used as a hitching post for horses back in the day. This statue represents a racist caricature of an African boy in a subservient role. Not to mention it’s links to slavery. Blackface is not acceptable so why should a minstrel style statue be acceptable in a public place in 2020? It is symbolic of a time and culture that demeaned and dehumanized people of colour. I have written to council many times to ask them to permanently remove both statues but they have either not responded or responded by saying that it’s been around since the 1800’s and they have no intention of removing them. I would like to seek you support with this petition and present it to Maitland Council with a clear message that this racist symbol has no place in our community. I would like to ask if you also find the statue offensive and agree it should be removed immediately could you please join us in signing the petition and circulate it as widely as possible.

  • No construction work Sundays, Good Friday and Easter Sunday
    Neighbours need a break from construction noise and concrete dust. They deserve to be able to participate in on-line church services and to be able to hear these. They deserve to be able to sleep past 7am or 8 am and to be able to go outside in the garden or hang washing out without noise and dust. Those with respiratory problems need a break from the dust. We cannot go out to escape the noise and dust except for brief periods. The impact on physical and mental health of residents and construction workers and their families need to be taken into account especially at this time.

  • Free Fiona Smith, #Right2Refuse protester & platypus advocate
    Fiona Smith was to attend International Victims of Psychiatrists Day on 10th Oct 2pm - 5pm, at Canberra Parliament AAA. This is about a protester & human rights defender being silenced by the vile cruel exploitation legislation that is the MHA. Risperdal Consta is causing Fiona Smith horrific pain and damage to her body, disfiguring, disabling and retarding of her abilities. Risperdal Consta is known to cause - -agitation -anxiety -changes in vision, including blurred vision -difficulty concentrating -difficulty speaking or swallowing -inability to move the eyes -increase in amount of urine -loss of balance control -mask-like face -memory problems -muscle spasms of the face, neck, and back -problems with urination -restlessness or need to keep moving (severe) -shuffling walk -skin rash or itching -stiffness or weakness of the arms or legs -tic-like or twitching movements -trembling and shaking of the fingers and hands -trouble sleeping -twisting body movements This is outrageously cruel drug to forcibly subject Fiona Smith to. Her skin was torn when they forcibly injected her in her arm, causing her to bleed, and as she said 'blood everywhere all over the bed where they held me down.' Victorians must think of human rights and dignity, before the money made from human research. It is a disgusting thing for a State Government, and a Federal Government to profit from. Forced Human Experimentation, and the psychiatrists that torture people for profit, must be utterly condemned and immediately stopped. For a state such as Victoria to train psychiatrists to torture little animals in their research, then move on to humans is disgusting. For these psychiatrists to take pleasure in the power they have to break people under torture, into servitude as research specimens, and be allowed to do that through State legislation, is so vile and evil. That the State Legislators have given violating psychiatrists loopholes such as Emergency Treatment/ Research, and the Victorian Mental Health Act 2014, is not something that should be allowed. No State/ Territory in Australia, or any other place in the world, should be allowing psychiatrists to force their products, procedures, programs, beds and research on people. And the life of our rivers, as Fiona Smith has been advocating must also be considered. The river water would not be any where near as polluted as it is if there was no forced psychiatry. Victoria and the rest of Australia must implement international agreements, such as the UN CRPD, stop violating Fiona Smith, the people she's being protesting for, and the river life she's also been advocating for. https://youtu.be/NfWEu3BPaWU Forced psychiatry should be considered a servitude offense, and the Code violations, for the human research people have been forcibly subjected be recognised and subjected to the full force of the law.

  • Stop PM Scott Morrison's USA visit to meet racist Trump
    With his recent call on four Congress Members of various ethnic origins to "go back where they came from", the US President has invalidated any claim to be recognised by Australia (and the world) as a leader, let alone friend of our nation. We must be strong enough to stand up to this bully and not dignify his racist regime, but ensure that Australia's voice remains free, fair and independent.

  • Ban Royal Brunei Airlines
    Brunei has just introduced the death penalty for homosexual acts and for adultery. And if that isn’t barbaric enough, it is DEATH BY STONING. Royal Brunei is a state-owned airline. The Australian Government can send a very clear message to Brunei that gross violations of the UN Declaration of Human Rights can not be tolerated. Please take action before the first public executions are held.

  • Mothers work
    The economic disadvantage women face through child bearing and rearing is so engrained in our society that we accept it as the status quo. However Australia has one of the lowest number of paid maternity leave weeks ( and it is also conditional) . Instead of labelling this payment as “welfare” or “government handouts” let’s start a paradigm shift and look at it for what it really is; A redistribution of wealth for human capital, in support of women (and men) in a time of their lives when they need it most. It seems a strange but accepted throw back to the 1960’s that if you choose to raise your own children you become the economic responsibility of your significant other ( statistically speaking in a heterosexual relationship this is the man / husband). This lack of financial independence is not only distressing and oppressive, it affects all areas of life including negatively impacting maternal mental health, increasing stress on the relationship ( during an already stressful time ) and ultimately can affect the health and well being of the entire family unit. Lack of financial independence is also contributing factor to women experiencing domestic violence & their inability to escape their circumstances. If we were able to provide women with a level of financial support during the first year of their child’s life, we would not only be supporting the woman and child but be investing in a healthier, fairer more just society. For what mothers add to society in terms of a loving, nurturing and peaceful upbringing has far more value and unseen ripple effect then any economic system could ever be able to accurately measure or quantify.

  • Free West Papua
    Since Australia voted in 1962 to occupy West New Guinea with United Nations forces, in violation of our Commonwealth & international legal obligations hundreds of thousands of our Papuan neighbours have purportedly been wrongfully killed by the UN appointed administrators while untold $billions have been looted from their homelands. I believe the looting since 1962 of the United Nations occupied territory has created and is contributing to a reckless shift of wealth and authority from the Pacific to South East Asia which has introduced numerous biological problems and social handicaps to the Pacific which should be mitigated without further delay.

  • Stop the cultural genocide of Macedonia and Macedonians
    The unethical political elites in the UN, USA, NATO, the EU and Australia are imposing an illegal, anti-constitutional, unsustainable and dangerous Prespa Agreement on the Republic of Macedonia. It seeks to force Macedonia to change its name, language, identity and culture in order to possibly become a third class member of the undemocratic and dysfunctional NATO and the EU. This has created a new political crisis which can destroy the Republic of Macedonia and make it subservient to the Hellenic Republic which does not even recognise the Macedonian people, identity or their culture. The Prespa Agreement was rejected by over 61% of eligible voters in Macedonia on 30 Sept. 2018 and is legally null and void. Over 137 countries have recognized the Republic of Macedonia under its Constitutional name. Despite this, the arrogant denialists at the UN, USA, NATO and the EU are using a puppet government in Macedonia to deliver their nasty agreement. We, the Macedonians, are the traditional indigenous owners of the land and civilisation known from Biblical times as Macedonia. We categorically reject foreign interference in Macedonia’s democracy. We do not consent to the signing and implementation of the so called Prespa Agreement through bullying, blackmail and bribes in the Macedonian Parliament and against the democratic wishes of the Macedonians. We do no accept the Prespa Agreement to take away our name, identity, language and culture. We will not accept their blackmail and their offer for us to commit cultural genocide. We will protect and defend the Republic of Macedonia and our connection to it. We call upon all good citizens in the world including Australia, USA, Canada, Europe and the Indo-Pacific to help protect the sovereign Macedonian state, people and culture from cultural genocide in the making.

  • Royal Commission into Mental Health must not include McGorry
    Deaths and maiming through forced and coerced Mental Health treatments must be counted, and the horror of these legislated abuses fully exposed to the Australian people: 1. If someone dies of a cardiac arrest after years of being forced on a neuroleptic, then the death must be marked up as a cardiac arrest potentially caused by the neuroleptic forced. And so forth, for every death – including suicide potentially induced by forced – coerced psychiatric drugs. 2. We want the maiming of our bodies to be counted. So for every person that attempts suicide due to the horrible effects of neuroleptics or other psychiatric drugs and procedures and injures themselves, everyone who gets a cardio condition, an allergy, diabetes… all the things listed on the drug’s website, that these psychiatric drugs that are forced on people are known to cause. 3. We want a count of how many people were put on forced orders in a year. 4. We want a count of how many people were utilised as data in human research as ‘emergency research’ without their knowledge, and through coercive means, due to the Mental Health legislation in Victoria. 5. We want to know how many people were threatened with forced psychiatry, if they did not undergo another kind of medical procedure, or treatment. 6. We want to know how many people were broken under torture of isolation, arbitrary detention, high dose drugs, mechanical holds, and other procedures, into obedience with the treating psychiatrist, and how many were verbally told, that they need to agree to treatment, and agree to the psychiatric label given if they are to be let free from arbitrary detention or mechanical ties, or have the dose of the drug lowered. 7. We want to know how many people have been suffering an emergency medical condition, that was ignored, and turned into a Mental Health issue. How many of those people have been maimed or killed due to not being listened to, and denied the access to assistance they need, and having their condition worsened by toxic psychiatric drugs, and damaging procedures, as well as the dehumanisation of forced psychiatry. 8. We want to know how many people were trying to speak out against the effects of electrical pollution, that were subjected to forced psychiatry. 9. We want to know how many people were attempting to speak out against chemicals in their environment or food, that were subjected to forced psychiatry. 10. We want to know how many people were attempting to speak out against organised crime, when they were subjected to forced psychiatry. 11. We want to know how many people were attempting to speak out against violence that they experienced, or were currently experiencing, and attempting to do so got them subjected to forced psychiatry. 12. How many compulsory patients were physically assaulted in a psychiatric ward, and how often. 13. How many people subjected to mental health treatments were subjected to lewd comments, racism, sexism, or had their spiritual, cultural, or individual beliefs vilified by staff members. 14. How many people subjected to forced psychiatry would consider themselves to be socially disenfranchised, financially disenfranchised, an oppressed people, and considered their diagnosis by psychiatrists to be discriminatory.
