Another SOCPA travesty

Riley: "SOCPA doesn't apply to us"
When is a demonstration not a demonstration? That's a question that SOCPA followers have been asking for almost a year now, as ever more people come before the judge as Serious Criminals.

Australian government outlines pro-market agenda for its Pacific sphere of influ

28-06-2006 21:28

Neo-colonial occupation
The publication of “Pacific 2020” is part of the same process. Given the tiny economies of the Pacific islands and East Timor and their reliance on international aid and trade, these countries will be pushed into implementing its agenda—one way or another. Significantly the report was released a month after the publication of a “White Paper on the Australian Government’s Overseas Aid Program” which explicitly links aid to economic demands.
