Indigenous and Pregnant Women to get Free Flu Vaccine – White Men to go to Hell

“Today we are announcing that the seasonal flu vaccine will be available free of charge to more than two million extra Australians, particularly pregnant women and indigenous Australians,” Federal Health Minister Nicola Roxon told Channel 9.

Previously, just under 3 million people aged 65 and over were entitled to free flu vaccine. Now that all Aboriginals and pregnant women are to receive free flu vaccine shots, this will bring the number up to about 4.5 million receiving the vaccine.

The theory behind the Federal Government’s proposal is that indigenous people – rich, poor or otherwise – are more important to …

Jewish Authors Claim Australia is a Land of Bigots

221 years on we remain a land of bigots

MORE than 200 years after Europeans arrived, Aboriginal people face discrimination in public places and institutions, Flinders University researchers have found.

And the distress racism causes affects Aboriginal health.

The authors of In Our Own Backyard said it appeared racism was alive and well, with more than nine in ten Aboriginal people experiencing bias, abuse and violence, and two thirds experiencing it often.

They also found twice as many Aboriginal people were teetotallers, compared to non-Aborigines, while three times as …

POLICE are wasting $3 million a year policing a bikie club “made up of grandfathers, union members and gainfully-employed people”, the Finks have claimed.

In a letter to Attorney-General Michael Atkinson, the outlaw group says it is “not in the public interest” to spend time and money banning their organisation “whilst other areas of (the police) are seeking additional men and equipment”.

It says the Rann Government’s push to impose criminal sanctions on its membership is based on incorrect and misdirected evidence – some of it decades out of …

Segregation of Australian Schools

SA Secondary Principals Association wants police in schools

Michael Owen: The Advertiser | January 20, 2009

PRINCIPALS believe increasing cases of physical and sexual violence in schools warrant community police officers being based on campuses.

The number of reported physical and sexual assaults against students and teachers is skyrocketing as the State Government enforces its “zero tolerance” approach to violence in public schools.

As 170,000 children prepare to return to school next Tuesday, Education Department figures provided to The Advertiser reveal a sharp spike last year in the amount of physical and sexual violence in schoolyards across the state. …

The driver was not hurt and is being …

Violently Racist Music

Black and Latin musicians issue forth violent racism and the target of their hatred is primarily whites. The web pages that follow expose some of the lyrics. The exposure is necessary because civil rights groups do little to bring attention to the violent racism of rap, left-wing rock, or raggae, and instead civil rights groups focus on violent racism of right-wing rock issued forth by white musicians.

WARNING:

This article contains lyrics that portray profanity and violence and that call for racial violence.

Aboriginal Racist Attempts Murder – Blames Whitey

A WHYALLA man bashed another man unconscious with a brick, left him for dead, then returned and assaulted the stricken man again, a court has heard.

Adam Sharpe knocked the man out with two punches then kicked him in the head and attacked him with a brick on Milsom St at Whyalla in January.

Sharpe, 24, told a friend he was unsure if he had killed his victim – then returned to the scene and attacked the prone man again with …

Abos Rioting in Port Augusta Prison

It has just been reported that Abos are rioting in Port Augusta prison.

According to the media, blame for the riot must lie with the state government for its “pack ’em, stack ’em and ‘rack em” approach to holding prisoners.

Although that may very well be the case, I am making the assumption that it’s just Abos out of control … again, and any excuse will do to put down any suggestion of Australia’s indigenous people taking responsibility for their own behaviour.

A COUNCIL has ordered an ex-soldier to take down the Australian flag which flies outside his house because it has been deemed “offensive” by a neighbour.

Aaron Wilson erected the 5m high flagpole eight weeks ago, in honour of his friends who served in Iraq.

But on Tuesday, Logan City Council called to tell him a neighbour had made a complaint, labelling it “offensive”.

He was told to remove the pole or risk legal action. Mr Wilson, whose father fought in Vietnam, said he was disgusted.

GUN-WIELDING “gangsters” are making the city unsafe and their haunts must be shut down immediately, Adelaide Lord Mayor Michael Harbison says.

In the wake of yesterday’s dramatic early morning shooting in Gouger St where a person was wounded and a bystander injured, Mr Harbison has challenged the State Government to institute the “clean-up”.

While Mr Harbison wants businesses to bring back a feeling of community safety, political leaders called for a greater police presence on the beat. [more …]

City Shooter was Iraqi Refugee – NOT “Bikies” as Claimed by Government and Media

Gouger St shooter ‘an Iraqi Gulf War vet’, Adelaide court told

http://www.news.com.au/adelaidenow/story/0,22606,24424240-2682,00.html

THE man charged over a shootout in Gouger St is a former Iraqi Army corporal and weapons expert with “extensive” ties to organised crime, a court has heard.

A prosecutor today alleged Gulf War veteran Ahmed Al-Khafaji fled interstate after the city shooting in May and tried to disguise himself with new tattoos and false identities in NSW and Victoria.

His defence teams rubbished those claims, saying Al Khafaji was an Iraqi refugee and tiler who voluntarily surrendered …

Racial tolerance in South Australia ‘too high’

Tory Shepherd: The Advertiser | September 30, 2008

http://www.news.com.au/adelaidenow/story/0,22606,24423463-2682,00.html

The “disappointing” results are from a 10-year survey called Challenging Racism, to be released at the 4Rs (rights, reconciliation, respect and responsibility) International Conference in Sydney this week.

A cultural gap yes,

but we’re not racist

ONE in two South Australians do not like the idea of a close relative marrying a Muslim, while one in three are against marriage to Aborigines or black Africans.

Despite this, only one in 10 actually admits to being racist.

Project leader Professor Kevin Dunn, from the University of Western Sydney, said yesterday the levels …

FORTY per cent of Australians believe some ethnic groups do not belong in the country with one in 10 having outwardly racist views, a new study shows.

New South Wales tops the list with racist views, but lead researcher on the project Kevin Dunn puts it down to Sydney being the focus of international migration to Australia.

The study, led by human geography and urban studies Professor Dunn and his team from the University of Western Sydney, reveals racism in Australia has waned over the years but the figures remain high.

http://www.news.com.au/adelaidenow/story/0,22606,24405406-911,00.html

A 14-YEAR-old girl who ran away from hospital was beaten with a lump of wood by a younger girl before being dragged into bushes by boys who tried to rape her as she was dying, a coroner has been told.

Observers sat in stunned silence in an Alice Springs court yesterday as a lawyer detailed the girl’s last hours, the Northern Territory News reported.

The inquest was also told that nursing staff failed to follow Health Department rules when the girl discharged herself from hospital.

Police were not alerted until 23 …
