12-10-2006 00:06

brian's extended display
even armed with the mighty socpa (serious organised crime and police act) it would appear that police ended up seriously abusing their powers in many different ways on monday. i hope their cases can be seriously undermined by collected evidence of their unlawful actions.

On the Ground: eye witness reports from Sack Parliament

11-10-2006 22:17

By Friday October 6 in this foul year of our Lord 2006 it was already labelled a riot across nearly every Rupert Murdoch freebee newspaper and every copy of the Evening Slander in the city. In the spirit of the war on terror fearful names were back in the mainstream headlines again. No, not Al Qaeda. Not even the IRA. Nor the Fathers for Justice gone rabid or militant pro-fox hunting farmers armed with fire works and tweed jackets. No. This time it was the Wombles. Violent anarchists. Masked anti-capitalists intent on destroying parliament and pulling the plug on UK democracy.

The affair and the Howard government
While the Australian media and the opposition Labor Party have happily promoted the AWB “scandal”, neither has raised any connection between the affair and the Howard government’s sordid calculations in the lead-up to the Iraq invasion. Their silence again demonstrates the complicity of the entire political and media establishment with the criminal invasion and occupation of Iraq, and the violent drive of the Bush administration to seize control of its resources.
