The Covert War on Old People "IndyWatch Feed National"

J.G. Olsen / Financial Expositor

Decades ago some passing Melbourne Uni student wrote on a wall in Carlton, We are being farmed. The truth is simple but there is much cunning detail involved in the reality.

We are now seeing hyper-efficient human resource management being put into place. Old people are trouble so its out with them, and in with the new people, their reward for compliance is that they can come into Australia from anywhere to displace local Useless Eaters.

Hot desking is not just for offices, its a lifestyle now, nomadism is back in vogue so you are deployed here or there, for maximum effectiveness. Accommodation is available from web apps such as Stayz, which ad...

Why gender essentialism is a white supremacist ideology "IndyWatch Feed National"

The idea that these neo-Nazis are just cosplayers, attempt by numerous lone wolves and paramilitary groups to seize control of multiple countries, is too dangerous to seriously contemplate. The better question might be: why do so many anti-trans rights activists, who often see themselves as left-wing or self-describe as feminists, tolerate or downplay the presence of Nazis in their circles? And, just as importantly, why do neo-Nazis show up to support them?

Tipping Points, Resets and an Unknown Future "IndyWatch Feed National"

Introduction by DM,

Earlier this week, my swimming friend was telling me about how she was trying to close her account and transfer money from the Commonwealth Bank (Australia) to another. She attempted to transfer the funds online, but a SCAM ALERT popped up preventing the transfer. The next day she went to her branch, waited for a long time, and just before closing time sat down with one of the bank staff to help her transfer the funds. At the end of a long process, the staffer said it was done and the funds transferred. But no, on checking her account days later the transfer had not gone through. She then went to the main city branch to get the transfer done. On arriving, she...

Xi and Putin meeting shows the world of western dominance is coming to an end "IndyWatch Feed National"

Contributed by Joe Montero

The recent visit by Chinas Xi Jinping to Moscow and his meeting with Russias leader Vladimir Putin as an important event. On one side, it heralds a new level of the relationship between the two nations.  On the other, it marks a new chapter in the realignment of global politics and power, and this will effect all nation, including Australia.

Wisdom suggests that taking note of this and its implications is a very good idea.

There are two very different interpretations. One peddled by the United States and  its satellites is that China and Russia are trying to destroy the rules based order and take over the world, and they must be stopped. This has been broadcast loudly be most of the big corporate media in the nations where governments singing this song. They beat up about inevitable conflict and the prospect of war. In fact, its most zealous proponents are calling for war.

Just what it this rule based order? In reality it is a system where the West, principally the United States, position themselves as the custodians of civilisation, democracy, and freedom. Control over the rules and processes that administer economics, international trade, finance, politics, and military affairs was imposed.  

illustration by Chen Xia/GT

Since Bretton Woods system was put in place in 1944, global trade has been administered by institutions that serve it. The two most prominent ones are the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank. Gold and the U.S. Dollar were cemented as the medium for international exchange. Those who did not sign onto Bretton Woods, or excluded, were locked out of the global economy. To be included meant to come submit to demands of the United States.

Todays champions of the rules-based system are really calling for a continuation of this system and defending the interests of the dominant power.

There are echoes of nineteenth and twentieth century colonialism here. The existing rules system benefits some at the cost of others and preserves the right of a few to interfere in the concerns of others.

The meeting between Xi and Putin was one...

The Trump legal circus goes on and on "IndyWatch Feed National"

I have been avoiding much of the news about the possible indictments of Donald Trump because prosecutors offices tend to be pretty tight-lipped, so the constant speculation about if or when he will be indicted, by whom and for what, tends to be fact-free and thus of not much value. One might as well wait until something actually happens. But then last week Trump himself said that he expects to be indicted and also arrested on Tuesday by the Manhattan district attorney on the recommendation of the grand jury looking into his case and that caused a media frenzy. It is not clear if Trump had some inside source for this news or whether he was also guessing and simply trying to rally support in the event that he does get indicted soon.

Tuesday came and went with no indictment. Since the grand jury only meets on Mondays and Wednesday, that would make today the possible day. I do not how how the process works in detail but I would have thought that in complex, high-profile cases it would take at least a day or two after the grand jury ends its deliberations and delivers its verdict for the DA to prepare and file an indictment, so I would not expect anything today either.

Trump had called on his supporters to protest but according to news reports, police, media, and anti-Trump protestors outnumbered pro-Trump supporters outside the Manhattan DAs office on Tuesday. Some of the pro-Trump protestors even looked like they were not sincere supporters but performance artists. I can well understand his supporters being a little cautious this time around. Many of them are bitter that after they responded to his call to protest on January 6th 2021, he did not march with them to the Capitol as he had promised and for a short while even seemed to abandon them. The fact that so many of them have been prosecuted, convicted, and jailed, ruining their lives, must have a cooling effect on their passions.

So did Trump get wrong information? It is possible that the DA had planned to do something on Tuesday but deferred it in order to defuse any gathering of the Trump supporters. Or it is possible that Trump simply made up the story (he has absolutely no regard for the truth) in order to fund-raise. He has already sent out appeals to his followers. It is also possible that he wanted to shift attention to himself and away from the retreat being held in Florida by Republican members of Congress to plan their strategy. If so, it worked. Speaker Kevin McCarthy had to answer questions about the possible indictment instead of what his party was discussing.

Whatever his reasons, the discussion among the chattering classes...


The Indo-Pacificization of Asia: Implications for the Regional Order "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Indo-Pacific is a vast geographical region that encompasses the Indian Ocean and the western and central Pacific Oceans, including the many seas in Southeast Asia and Oceania. In a geopolitical context, the term only started to appear in the lexicon of geopolitics in the late 2010s. The late Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo first referred to the confluence of the Indian and Pacific Oceans in mid-2007, and the official use of Indo-Pacific first appeared in Australias 2013 Defense White Paper. Since then, the U.S., India, EU, and ASEAN have all published their respective visions and strategies for the Indo-Pacific. What drove the emergence of this vast super-region in the geopolitical discourse?


Mental Maps, the Far East, and the Asia-Pacific

Regions are social constructs that serve political agendas. Fundamentally, they are mental maps that revolve around power, shape identity, agenda setting, and sense of belonging as a stakeholder in a shared space. Regional identities form the basis for which a state perceives itself vis--vis others. A logical consequence of the dynamic nature of political agendas is that regional constructs are also dynamic, and subject to reflect the given state of international relations.

The contemporary Indo-Pacific construct is a relatively recent phenomenon. Previously, the term Far East was widely used. The term has mostly fallen out of popular use, due to its certain connotations with eurocentrism, colonialism, and cultural exoticism. The term was also initially used by Imperial Japan, but it later opted for East Asia in an attempt to create an alternative region order in the form of the Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere.

Fast-forward to the late twentieth century, the Asia-Pacific emerged as a new regional construct with the worlds largest ocean the Pacific at its heart. What was previously seen as a geographical barrier is instead seen through the lens of connectivity, where shipping lanes and flight routes would bring the emerging economies of Asia closer to the developed markets of the U.S. This occurred in the context of the unipolar moment, where the United States emerged from the Cold War as the worlds sole superpower. It is within this unipolar framework that the U.S. was able to act as the security guarantor the regional order through hubs and spokes a series of bilateral security ties between the U.S. and its partners in Asia.

Institutions played a key role in upholding the regional order. The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) perhaps best encapsulates the idea of an Asia-Pacific construct. Formed in 1989, APEC pr...

10 Best Transfer Paper in Australia (2023) [Top Picks] "IndyWatch Feed Cvic"

When it comes to finding the best transfer paper, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. The type of paper you use will determine the quality of the transfer, so its important to choose wisely. There are two main types of transfer paper: photocopier paper and inkjet paper. Photocopier paper is cheaper but doesnt produce as high-quality transfers.

Inkjet paper is more expensive but produces better results. To get the best possible transfer, you need to use a high-quality piece of paper. This means that youll have to spend a bit more money on the paper itself. However, its worth it in the end because youll get better results.


Extremism leads to more extremism "IndyWatch Feed National"

Answers in Genesis isnt just that annoying collection of stupid people and con artists anymore theyre embracing hate and bigotry as fervently as they have ignorance, and its getting worse. Dan makes an interesting discovery while trying to track down the source of some recent hateful articles on the AiG website.

Whats curious is that AiG is trying to hide the source there are these articles that are currently anonymous, but the Wayback Machine reveals that they were initially posted under the byline Harry F. Sanders, III. Why is AiG actively trying to conceal the authorship? And further, Harry F. Sanders, III is itself a pseudonym for someone named Emory Moynagh (probably also a pseudonym) who had a YouTube channel (now deleted) called In His Image, where he was an extremist antisemitic conspiracy theorists. And now AiG is trying to launder his history while giving him a bigger platform to peddle that extremism. Also interesting: AiG is taking other creationist organizations know they are heretics and blasphemers. Ken Hams ego is totally in charge, I imagine he considers himself a modern-day patriarch who must chastise all those who deviate from his dogma.

This is a common problem in authoritarian worldviews, you know. Were witnessing a predictable acceleration as AiG fully embraces its cult nature. Its only going to get more feverish and vicious.

If youd rather not listen to a 14 minute video, heres the conclusion:

Ken Ham is going all-in on the culture war
And hes decided to go all-in against other YECs
Hes enlisted Harry F. Sanders, III/Emory Moynagh as the primary author of this series
Harry/Emory has a history of articulating extreme positions, including borderline incitements of violence, antisemitism, and conspiracies
This is dangerous and irresponsible, especially considering Ham and AiGs recent aggression towards the LGBT+ community and the trend of right-wing violence

Paper co-authored by controversial Australian journalist earns expression of concern "IndyWatch Feed National"

Maryanne Demasi

One more paper co-authored by Australian health journalist Maryanne Demasi has earned an expression of concern for image duplication.

The move comes seven years after the journal Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) was first made aware of potential problems with a figure in Demasis paper that showed Western blots. It marks the third time one of the former researchers scientific publications has been officially flagged as concerning or retracted.

Demasi, who earned her PhD from the University of Adelaide in 2004, has been in the news recently after she did a controversial interview with the lead author of a Cochrane review that cast doubt on face masks. She has drawn frequent rebuke over the past decade, beginning with a 2013 program in which her reporting questioned statins. She and her co-authors told us in 2018 that they believe her work as a journalist made her research a target of criticism.

10 Best Cpu Cheap in Australia (2023) [Top Picks] "IndyWatch Feed Cvic"

If you are looking for the best cheap CPU, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. The first is that you need to know what your needs are. Are you a casual user who only uses their computer for browsing the web and checking email? Or are you a power user who needs their computer for gaming, video editing, or other resource-intensive tasks? Once you know what your needs are, you can start looking at different CPUs to find the one that best suits your budget. There are a few different manufacturers of CPUs, but Intel and AMD are the two most popular. Intel CPUs tend to be more expensive, but they also tend to be more powerful. AMD CPUs are typically cheaper, but they can still offer good performance for most users.

If youre on a tight budget, an AMD CPU is probably your best bet. But if you can afford to spend a bit more, an Intel CPU will likely give you better performance. Once youve decided on a manufacturer, you need to choose a model. The model number will tell you how powerful the CPU is. The higher the number, the more powerful the CPU will be. However, dont get too hung up on model numbers.

Considerations for Expats Moving to Thailand "IndyWatch Feed National"

At some point in life, everyone fantasizes about packing everything up and moving abroad. But for many, fantasy is as far as it goes because moving abroad is quite a big change. Now, for the people who are ready for such a revolution, globetrotters in essence, Thailand might seem the perfect destination.

The Land of Smiles, the country of a thousand landscapes and exotic dishes, is famous for its hospitality. When choosing the country you want to live your life in, this is a key aspect and it can be the feature that helps you make the final decision. However, moving abroad is not an easy deal and the best way to approach it is by checking all the items in the aspects-to-consider-before-moving list. So, if you are considering Thailand as a place to live in, these are the things you should take into account.

Thailand is a highly popular destination among expats

Finding a home in Thailand will not be so hard, especially because it is full of other expats that are willing to help you in the search. Besides, the locals welcome hundreds of new visitors and foreigners who go there to live every year. Most new residents that are foreigners go from the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia, so, even if you will eventually learn the language, you will find English-speaking people everywhere.

The bigger cities are the preferred destinations of foreign residents so, when looking for a house, consider Bangkok, Pattaya, or Chiang Mai, although islands like Koh Samui or Koh Tao are also popular choices for expats.

Plenty of landscapes and tourist places



Russia warns UK over decision to arm Ukraine with nuclear ammo "IndyWatch Feed National"

Press TV March 21.2023

Britain will be sending Depleted Uranium (DU) ammunition along with the Challenger tanks it is sending Ukraine. Click to enlarge

Russian President Vladimir Putin warns that Moscow will react to an earlier decision by the UK to arm Ukraine with ammunition containing depleted uranium.

Speaking in London on Monday, Britains Minister of State for Defense Annabel Goldie said some of the ammunition for the Challenger 2 battle tanks that Britain was sending to Ukraine included armor-piercing rounds, which contain depleted uranium.

The United Kingdomannounced not only the supply of tanks to Ukraine, but also shells with depleted uranium. If this happens, Russia will be forced to react, Putin told reporters in Moscow on Tuesday.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu also cautioned that the British decision was moving Moscow and the West closer to the brink of nuclear collision.

Another step has been taken, and there are fewer and fewer left, he told reporters in remarks cited by domestic agencies.

Ammunition containing depleted uranium can pierce tanks and similar armor-plated vehicles due to the nuclear components density and other physical properties.

Naturally, Russia has something to answer this with, Shoigu added.

Russia started a military campaign in neighboring Ukraine last February to defend the pro-Russian population in the eastern Ukrainian regions of Donetsk and Luhansk against persecution by Kiev.

Ever since the beginning of the war, Western countries, led by the United States, have been slapping Russia with a slew of economic sanctions and pumping Ukraine full of advanced weapons, steps that Moscow says would only prolong the hostilities.

The Wests ongoing armament of Ukraine comes, although, Putin recently said he welcomed a Chinese proposal for mediation between Moscow and Kiev towards resolution of the now-year-long conflict.

I told you So "IndyWatch Feed National"

For the life of me, I have stated the obvious that the Biden Administration has been pushing China and Russia together not to mention North Korea, Iran, and perhaps even Turkey. I cannot believe that I am so brilliant that none of these people in the White House understood the historical event that just took place. That leaves me with the only possible conclusion that they KNEW what they were doing, and that this was DELIBERATE with the intention of creating World War III.

They made it clear that Russia is willing to negotiate but the USA wants war not peace. All they need to do is honor the Minsk Agreement which they refuse to do. In addition, they expressed concern about the West effectively creating NATO in Asia and the AUKUS (Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States) and their plans to build nuclear submarines that would violate the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

Russian and China came to an agreement concerning a comprehensive partnership in the energy sector. They also expressed concern for the American Neocons who have been pushing military-biological activities and demand full disclosure. They are furthermore pushing for the US to accelerate the elimination of its stockpile of chemical weapons, which the Neocons seem to be dragging their feet intentionally under the Biden Administration.

They also stressed that the United States is pushing Ukraine into this proxy war that they viewed as leading to an uncontrollable phase. Moreover, they have also pointed out that the United States and the UK are bypassing the UN Security Council and acting in a rogue manner. The Biden Administration has already divided the world economy. Now, China and Russia are moving to a joint security policy on food and energy which will include defense.

NATO is by no means a defensive organization. They violated the agreements of 1991 and moved Eastward to the border of Russia. In return, China and Russia have called on NATO to strictly observe the defensive nature of their organization and respect the foreign sovereignty of nations, which they have not. Aside from the fact that they invited Russia to join in 1991 which led to the Gorbachev coup, the need for Russia to be the evil empire has been vital. Without an enemy, NATO serves no purpose.

They have also expressed concern that the United States has clearly intensified...

China Urges US to Stop Politicizing COVID Origins-tracing After Bill Signed

By GT staff reporters

Mar 21, 2023 10:11 PM

Cartoon produced by Xinhua shows US President Joe Biden turning to the intelligence community for a COVID-19 virus origins story. Photo: Xinhua

China on Tuesday urged the US to stop politicizing the COVID-19 origins-tracing in strong opposition to US President Joe Biden's signing of a bill that requires the so-called declassification of information related to COVID-19 origins-tracing which hypes up "lab-leak" hypothesis without any evidence. 

Wang Wenbin, spokesperson from the Chinese Foreign Ministry, expressed China's strong dissatisfaction at Tuesday's press briefing over the bill saying it severely distorts facts, fabricates false infomation, hypes up "lab-leak theory" without any evidence, and smears and attacks China. 

The legislation - the COVID-19 Origin Act of 2023 - passed by the US Senate and House earlier this month and Biden signed the bill into law on Monday.

"My Administration will continue to review all classified information relating to COVID-19's origins, including potential links to the Wuhan Institute of Virology," Biden claimed in a statement released by the White House. 

Wang condemned the US for not making any responsible moves, except making irresponsible remarks on the World Health Organization works in tracing origins and repressing scientists who uphold consciencee in answeing a question asked by the Global Times reporter.

Politicizing the COVID-19 origins-tracing will only hinder global tracing and scientific cooperation, divide global solidarity in the fight against COVID-19, and undermine the global health governance mechanism, Wang warned, urging the US to stop politicizing origins-tracing and respond to reasonable concerns from the international community, including sharing their suspected cases, open up Fort Detricks and other bio-labs, Wang noted.

Soros Taking Down America "IndyWatch Feed National"

Alvan Bragg in his vendetta against Donald Trump is clearly not just abusing his power, but he is attempting to interfere in the presidential election of 2024 by harassing Trump and trying to make him so toxic that nobody will donate to him. While I personally thought that Trump had fallen too far to be a viable candidate, at this point, this has all had the opposite effect.  We have to come to the realization that Washington DC is so toxic itself, on both sides, that perhaps we need Donald Trump to actually kick ass. Will anyone else be effective in DC as a president from here on out? The answer is absolutely no way. And BTW, even if Trump is indicted and found guilty, he can still be president. A felony does not preclude you from being president.

Bragg is trying to claim that Trump used his own funds that he put into his campaign to pay the hooker and that makes it illegal. Bill Clinton did the same to pay $850,000 to Jones to settle a public lawsuit after an election but before any reelection no less Hillarys run for president.  Trump won against Stormy Daniels that he never had an affair with her and she eventually admitted that whereas Clinton did have an affair with Jones. All of this is absolutely desperate interference in the 2024 election.

What deeply offends me is that Bragg is tainted with the worst possible funding George Soros the man who wants to destroy the very economic system that enabled him to make billions. As ...

What Really Happens When We Die? A Shocking Revelation "IndyWatch Feed National"

Death is a topic that most people dont like to think about, let alone discuss. But as the saying goes, death is the great equalizer, and its something that we will all experience at some point. While there are many theories about what happens when we die, the truth is that no one knows for sure. However, recent research and personal accounts from those who have had near-death experiences have shed new light on this topic, and the revelations may shock you.

According to a study conducted by the University of Southampton in the UK, consciousness can continue to exist for several minutes after the body has died. The study, which analyzed more than 2,000 cases of cardiac arrest patients, found that nearly 40% of those who were resuscitated reported some level of awareness during the time that they were clinically dead.

One of the most interesting aspects of the study is that many of the patients reported similar experiences, regardless of whether they believed in an afterlife or not. Many described feeling as though they were floating above their body, watching as doctors tried to revive them. Others reported feelings of peace and tranquility, and some even said that they saw a bright light or a tunnel.

While its impossible to say for sure what these experiences mean, they do suggest that consciousness may be separate from the physical body and that it can continue to exist after death.

Another fascinating aspect of the study is that some of the patients reported hearing conversations that were taking place in the room while they were clinically dead. This suggests that hearing may be one of the last senses to go when we die, and that we may be more aware of our surroundings than we realize.

Of course, there are still many unanswered questions about what happens when we die. Some people believe in an afterlife, while others believe that death is simply the end. However, the research into near-death experiences suggests that there may be more to death than we previously thought.

Regardless of what happens when we die, its important to remember that death is a natural part of life. While it can be scary to think about, its also a reminder to live our lives to the fullest and to cherish the time that we have with our loved ones. So, whether we go on to a new plane of existence or simply fade away, we can take comfort in the fact that we will all experience death together, and that its simply a part of the cycle of life.

Strong culture and strong youth will help Close the Gap "IndyWatch Feed National"

BRIDGET Cama believes its time to take a different approach to Close the Gap. 

Ms Cama co-chairs the Uluru Youth Dialogue and spoke at the launch of the 2023 Close the Gap campaign in Sydney. 

Australians know that the gap exists between Indigenous and non- Indigenous Australians, she said. 

Government-implemented initiatives, policies and laws imposed on us and our communities to address or manage First Nations affairs have not worked. 

They continue to fail us because at every stage we are shut out of the decision-making processes. 

The Close the Gap campaign represents more than 50 organisations who, since 2006, have advocated for Aboriginal and Torres Strait


Voice is on track "IndyWatch Feed National"

FEDERAL Minister for Indigenous Australians Linda Burney says the referendum for an 

Indigenous voice to parliament is on track, despite having not yet released a question. 

Speaking from South Australias parliament house, Ms Burney said the referendum would be held by the end of the year. 

We are doing the work that is needed to get this voice right. I can assure you that the voice is on track, she said. 

We are taking our time, consulting and being very deliberate to make sure this voice is the voice that people are asking for.

Both the referendum working group, which includes a cross-section of representatives from First Nations communities across Australia and the engagement group, which also includes representatives from Indigenous organisations, met in Adelaide last week. 

The federal government has said it will introduce legislation by the end of the next parliamentary sitting on March 30. Working group member Thomas Mayor said meaningful recognition of First Nations people in the constitution was long overdue. 

We are doing a lot of hard work to reach a set of words we can take to the Australian people to see our nation become


Standing at Solidarity Park "IndyWatch Feed National"

In 1997, in response to anti-union legislation, 30,000 unionists marched on WA Parliament, and were ignored. On May Day, directly across the road from Parliament, aka Bullshit Castle, a site was pegged and legally claimed by unionists using the Mining Act. Remarkably, Solidarity Park is now Heritage Protected. The site is not just historic though, its alive. We ought to keep it overflowing with our movements.

The War Drive Against China "IndyWatch Feed National"

When will this hate-filled nonsense stop? Surveillance balloons treated like evocations of Satan and his card-carrying followers; other innumerable unidentified phenomena that, nonetheless, remain attributable in origin, despite their designation; and then the issue of spying cranes. In the meantime, there has been much finger pointing on the culprit of COVID-19 and the global pandemic. Behold the China Threat, the Sino Monster, the Yellow Terror.

In this atmosphere, the hawkish disposition of media outlets in a number of countries in shrieking for war is becoming palpable. The Fairfax press in Australia gave a less than admirable example of this in their absurd Red Alert series, crowned by crowing warmongers warning Australia to get ready for the imminent confrontation. The publications were timed to soften the public for the inevitable, scandalous and possibly even treasonous announcement that the Australian government would be spending A$368 billion in local currency on needless submarines against a garishly dressed-up threat backed by ill-motivated allies.

For days, the Australian press demonstrated a zombie-like adherence to the war line that had been fed by deskbound generals no doubt suffering from piles and deranged civilian strategists desperate to justify their supper. It is a line that always assumes the virtue of war; that going into battle, much like US President Theodore Roosevelt thought, will always outdo the tedium of peace in a haze of phosphorescent glory. It is only in the morgues and the crowded cemeteries that we find a worthy patriotism. Go out and kill, you noble sons and daughters. Do your nation proud, however stupidly.

The desperation of such a measure is also a reflection of how public opinion rejects the war drive. In a 2022 poll by the Lowy Institute think tank, 51% of Australians said they preferred their country to remain neutral in a conflict between the US and China over Taiwan. This was not a bad return, given the repetitious insistence by various Australian government ministers that joining a war with the United States over Taiwan was simply assumed.

In the US, the Wall Street Journal was also doing much the same thing, plumping for great power competitions that can only end badly, rather than great power cooperation which, when it goes well, spares us the body bags, the funerals and the flag fluttering.

We all live in a magic submarine "IndyWatch Feed National"

Morrisons dream, brought to you by the ALP and a mere 368 billion dollars.

Several commentators have remarked that, while the mainstream media is locked in furious agreement with the government over AUKUS and the trillion dollar submarines (a guess at the final price tag), social and independent media are telling quite a different tale.

The whole scheme originates with Morrison, which should ring alarm bells (did he secretly install Hillsong cultists in the defence department?), and they ring louder when we consider that the USA doesnt have the political stability to promise support through the next two or three decades. A president called Trump or DeSantis would likely disable the treaty with budget cuts or dismantle it outright. Similarly the UK government has no political strength, no social capital, and it has no economic stability either.

But somehow most members of the major parties, and mainstream journalists, with a few honourable exceptions, have swallowed whole the colonial Anglosphere will save us from the Chinese bullshit, and tumbled over each other to affirm what a brilliant act of statesmanship Albanese has performed.

It is by no means sure that this is what the electorate believes, and notably two former prime ministers have criticised the scheme, but the difference between them and Albanese is that Keating...

Voting guide to preferencing in the NSW lower house "IndyWatch Feed National"

The NSW election, to be held on Saturday March 25, uses optional preferencing in both houses of parliament which means that many votes will be unwittingly exhausted and wasted.

Click here for our handy upper house voting guide.

Last week, The Echo covered the importance of continuing preferencing in the upper house (the Legislative Council), to ensure not only the party with majority support wins, but to give a chance to minor party and independent candidates.

Now, lets turn to preferencing in the lower house (the Legislative Assembly).

There is little chance locally for minor party or independent party candidates to be elected to the lower house. Only the major parties, ie Labor, the Greens and the Liberal/Nationals Coalition, are likely to have successful candidates locally.

In the Ballina electorate (Byron and Ballina Shires), we elect a candidate to represent us in NSW Parliament.

The Greens Tamara Smith has held the seat for two terms, and has won with preferences from Labor and the minors.

If you do not preference properly, there is a chance the Nationals Party candidate could win, as the Nationals will almost certainly be ahead on the primary vote before preferences are counted.



Can we fix our failing food systems? Agroecology has answers "IndyWatch Feed National"

Overproduction of cash crops, vast monocultures of chemical-dependent grains and massive animal agriculture operations are putting major stress not just on U.S. farmland where theyre contributing to soil erosion, groundwater depletion and climate change but these practices are also impacting areas such as the Brazilian Cerrado, where more than half the huge savanna has been converted to soy. Compounding these issues is the fact that roughly a third of all food produced in the U.S. is wasted, a statistic that also bears out globally. As the 2023 growing season begins in the Northern Hemisphere, author and food journalist Tom Philpott whose most recent book, Perilous Bounty: The Looming Collapse of American Farming and How We Can Prevent It, details these problems joins the Mongabay Newscast to talk about the most problematic practices, how they permeate the worlds food systems and how techniques like agroecology and agroforestry could change the game and provide a way out. Listen here: Agroecology is a sustainable agriculture practice based on Indigenous and traditional methods of growing food that can address most of the aforementioned challenges while slowing the biodiversity crisis, according to the IPCCs 2022 report. Its methods can increase the nutrient profile of soils, protect it from erosion and provide a more diversified set of crops for farmers to sell. The question is, why dont we do it?

The three big questions Australias leaders must answer about the AUKUS deal "IndyWatch Feed National"

Former foreign minister (1988 to 1996) under a Labor government, Gareth Evans questions the wisdom of the AUKUS nuclear submarine deal. This comes from the viewpoint of some who favours the alliance with the United States. Even so, he sees significant problems in this deal, which are enough to question the wisdom of going along with it. His words ae important. Evans joins a growing list, including Paul Keating, Kim Carr, Bob Carr, and Peter Garrett. They add to the growing tide of opposition. This has been confirmed by the latest Essential poll. This article was published as an opinion[piece in The Guardian (21 March 2023).

Love Paul Keating or loathe him, admire or abhor his invective, he has raised questions about the AUKUS deal which are hugely important for Australias future and demand much more compelling answers than we have so far received from government ministers past or present.

The big three for me are whether, for all the hype, the submarines we are buying are really fit for purpose; whether an Australian flag on them really means we retain full sovereign agency in their use; and if it does not, whether that loss of agency is a price worth paying for the US security insurance we think we might be buying.

On any read of Australias defence needs focusing on potential adversaries capability, not presumed intent a very strong submarine fleet is a crucial component, along with air, missile and cyber power. And there is no question as to the greater capability of nuclear-powered submarines when it comes to speed of movement, time on distant station and probably though this is contested detectability. They are a hugely effective asset.

Poccums Law: the blueprint to fix the Andrews governments discriminatory bail laws "IndyWatch Feed National"

The family of Veronica Marie Nelson, a strong Gunditjmara, Dja Dja Wurrung, Wiradjuri and Yorta Yorta woman who passed away in custody, are calling on the Andrews Government to implement urgent changes to the state's bail laws and have asked that these reforms are referred to as Poccums Law.

Poccum was the nickname Veronica received from her family; as a child they took Veronica out to see a possum in the tree, and she would pronounce possum as poccum.

Thousands of people continue to be funnelled into Victorias prisons following knee-jerk amendments to Victorias bail laws. Since 2018 the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women in prison has almost doubled, and right now a staggering 41.9% of people in prison are unsentenced and awaiting a court hearing or trial.

Victorias bail laws destroy families and communities and put peoples lives at risk. They have led to a soaring prison population, even though Victorias crime rates have flat-lined.

The Coronial Inquest into Veronica Nelsons passing labeled the bail laws a complete and unmitigated disaster. The Coroner found that the bail laws discriminate against Aboriginal people, are incompatible with Victorias Human Rights Charter, and should be changed urgently.

56 organisations in the legal, human rights and health sectors, including the Victorian Aboriginal Legal Service, Robinson Gill Lawyers, Dhadjowa Foundation and the Human Rights Law Centre, support the familys calls and urge the Victorian government to immediately implement Poccums Law by:

  1. Removing the presumption against bail.

  2. Granting access to bail unless the prosecution shows that there is a specific and immediate risk to the safety of another person; a serious risk of interfering with a witness; or a demonstrable risk that the person will flee the jurisdiction.

  3. Explicitly requiring that a person must not be remanded for an offence that is unlikely to result in a sentence of imprisonment.

  4. Removing all bail offences (committing an indictable offence while on bail, breaching bail conditions and failure to answer bail).

Quote from Aunty Donna Nelson, Veronicas mother

My Poccums pleas for help must be heard by all lawmakers to correct a bail system that is broken.

I want these reforms to be made in honour of my daughter, Veronica, so lawmakers can always be reminded of how cruel and inhumane prison can be to our mob.

Any reform falling short of our demands will not be supported by me, and cannot have my Poccums name associated with it.

Mountain-Dwelling Species Losing Habitats Rapidly, Study Finds "IndyWatch Feed National"

Mountain forests are important habitats for many species, but a new study has found that habitat loss in these areas has been rapidly accelerating since 2000. In that time, more than 78.1 million hectares (approximately 193 million acres) of mountain forests have been lost, equaling an area greater than the size of Texas.

A team of scientists from Leeds University in the UK and the Southern University of Science and Technology in China studied changes in mountain forests annually from 2001 to 2018, analyzing losses and gains in tree cover. 

The researchers estimated a rate of change and compared the changes across varying elevations. They also compared changes in different types of mountain forests, including boreal, temperate and tropical forests. The tropical forests had the most loss and quickest rate of loss, but this type of forest also had the fastest tree regrowth rate.

Overall, mountain forest loss increased 50% in 2010 to 2018 compared to 2001 to 2009. From 2010 to 2018, mountain forest loss accelerated to about 5.2 million hectares per year, primarily due to logging. Other factors that contributed to forest loss included wildfires, slash-and-burn cultivation and agricultural expansion.

Asia, South America, Africa, Europe and Australia experienced significant mountain forest loss, while the authors observed less forest loss in North America and Oceania.

More than 85% of mammals, birds and amphibians live in mountainous areas, meaning widespread forest loss could impact biodiversity.

Knowledge of the dynamics of forest loss along elevation gradients worldwide is crucial for understanding how and where the amount of forested area available for forest species will change as they shift in response to warming, the authors wrote, as reported by ScienceDaily.

While the authors found less forest loss in protected areas compared to unprotected areas, these protected areas were still impacted by shifting cultivation, agriculture and commercial forestry. 

The study authors noted that protected areas need to be established in large enough zones to allow natural movements and sufficient space for ranging species, to best protect...


ABC's Sarah Ferguson grills Russian ambassador to Australia on Ukraine and alleged war-crimes - partial transcript "IndyWatch Feed National"

In her interview with the Russian ambassador to Australia, 7.30 Report 21 March 2023,  , I think that Sarah Ferguson failed to give her audience adequate information about the nature of the International Criminal Court, and the fact that neither the US nor Russia are signatories. The US has threatened members of the ICC in ways that would make them fearful of incurring US displeasure.[1] This makes the court unreliable in disputes involving the United States, which the Ukraine conflict clearly does. She also failed to explain how the United States is able to exert pressure on the UN, although this is clear in voting patterns during controversies, which reflect dependencies and fear. Sarah Ferguson did not give the credit due from a professional journalist to the Ukraine-Russia conflict having two sides. She seems to be engaged in a propaganda effort that aimed to consolidate Australias support for US-NATO involvement in Ukraine.

Sarah Ferguson was the caricature of an authoritarian headmistress dealing with a pupil from the wrong side of town who had been reported as a bully by the child of wealthy and influential parents. Clearly the odious child was there to be quelled by an avalanche of accusations framed as insults, and to learn that no-one was interested in his side of the story.

Sarah: For only the third time with the International Criminal Court, a serving president has been targeted by an arrest warrant. The ICC has found Russian President Vladimir Putin criminally responsible for war-crimes, specifically the deportation of Ukrainian children from occupied areas of Ukraine. Separately, a UN-backed inquiry did its own report today, detailing war-crimes by Russian troops during the war. Dr Alexi Palovski is the Kremlins ambassador to Australia. I spoke to him before the arrest warrant was made public.

Sarah: Ambassador Pavlovski, welcome to 7.30.

Ambassador: Good day.

Saras first question takes the form of a ridiculous insult: Ambassador, youre here in Australia, enjoying the benefits of a free and open society, how do you live with yourself, representing the repressive, dictatorial Putin regime?

The ambassador laughs.

Sara notes, You find that funny.

Ambassador: What I find funny is your way to start an interview.

Sarah says, Pretty straight question, with a self-satisfied grin on her face. [Ill teach you to stand up to the protegs of rich Americans, you execrable little slav!]

UK to Hand Depleted Uranium Ammunition to Kiev Alongside Challenger 2 Tanks: Deputy Defense Minister "IndyWatch Feed National"

Sputnik 21.03.2023

The British government will give Ukraine radioactive depleted uranium ammunition for the tanks it has promised the Kiev regime.

Alongside our granting of a squadron of Challenger 2 main battle tanks to Ukraine, we will be providing ammunition including armour piercing rounds which contain depleted uranium. Such rounds are highly effective in defeating modern tanks and armoured vehicles, Deputy Defence Minister Annabel Goldie said in an answer to a Parliamentary question on Tuesday.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunaks government has already pledged 14 of its Challenger 2 main battle tanks (MBTs) to Volodymyr Zelenskys regime in Kiev. The tanks have been out of production for over 20 years and only 227 remain in service with the British army.

Always Wanting More "IndyWatch Feed National"

Always wanting more is an operational definition of hedonism. This brief article is my mea culpa. Inexplicably, I overlooked hedonism per se as a trait in my psychoscope of the evil superpower elite in Americas corpocracy.1 In my defense, I did briefly allude to greed as an outgrowth of ambition.

Why Always Wanting More?

The ancient Greek poet Ovid had an answer, the Goddess of Plenty. Americas power elite are like Erysichthon, the greedy timber merchant in Ovids ancient tale. Erysichthon cuts down a sacred tree, angering Ceres, the Goddess of Plenty. She condemns him to eat everything in sight including himself after all else had been consumed.

Well, thanks Ovid, but Id like several other sources to chime in with their explanations, not that I expect them to be anymore edifying than you explanation.

The Journalists Answer

I always rely on good journalism as a source for my writings. Guess what I found? A handbook on hedonism, no less! Its a step-by-step guide to gluttony. The author is a New York Times best-selling author.2 I bet it is a best seller among Americas super rich!

The Philosophers Answer

While there must be millions of PhD philosophers on our planet who think for a living, trying to find them on the Internet is a chore. The first one I stumbled upon was a philosophers article entitled The Feels Good Theory of Pleasure.3 In order to read it I would have had to pay $39.95 for a PDF copy! Had I stumbled upon a case of the greedy writing about greed?

The cricketing phenomenon "IndyWatch Feed National"

The South African bowler, Kagiso Rabada, is arguably one of the best to play test cricket, and could retire as South Africas highest wicket-taker if the country plays more red-ball cricket.

England vs. South Africa at Oval, London, 2017. Image credit Kotomi Creations via Flickr CC BY-NC 2.0.

Years ago, Adam Gilchrist, the legendary Australian wicketkeeper and former captain of Australias national team, was asked about his favorite moment on a cricket field. Gilchrist didnt pick landmark innings or Test match victories. Instead, he described something more intimate. His favorite moment, he said, was the fraction of a second when the ball made contact with the middle of his bat, and he and only he, out of all the people at the ground and all of the viewers on television, knew the connection was sweet and perfect.

For Kagiso Rabada, that moment is when the ball leaves the hand and it feels just right. In that fraction of a second, he alone knows that the ball is traveling at the perfect speed and will land on the exact spot, perfect line and length, that he is after. Darts players are familiar with this feeling. You know as soon as the arrow takes flight whether it is headed where you want it to go or if it has gone rogue.

The earliest Rabada can remember having that feeling was in 2009. St. Stithians, his high school north of Johannesburg, was struggling to take the last wicket in a timed match. Rabada put his hand up, his captain threw the ball to him and with his first delivery of the over, Rabada sent the stumps cartwheeling.

In 2009, Rabada was 14 years old and he alone knew as the ball left his hand that he had bowled a good nut. The ball went through the batters defense and disrupted the woodwork before the rest of his teammates knew it. It was around this time that he decided that he wanted to be an international cricketer. He wanted to experience this joy more times. So, all the other sports he took part in at St. Stithians took a back seat. His focus was on becoming the best bowler he could be.

Six years later, on November 5 2015, Rabada made his Test debut in a dust bowl in Mohale in Punjab, India. If there is anyone that knows how to blunt world-class pace attacks, its Indian pitch curators. Indian curators are South African, England, Australian New...

Senators Had Questions for the Maker of a Rent-Setting Algorithm. The Answers Were Alarming. "IndyWatch Feed National"

ProPublica is a nonprofit newsroom that investigates abuses of power. Sign up to receive our biggest stories as soon as theyre published.

After a ProPublica investigation last year, a group of senators demanded answers from a real estate tech company that helps landlords set rents across the country.

The investigation revealed how some of the nations biggest landlords share proprietary information with RealPage, a Texas company whose software uses the data to recommend rent prices for available units. Legal experts say the arrangement may facilitate cartel-like behavior among landlords, who could use the software to coordinate pricing.

Now, RealPage has responded to questions from Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Tina Smith and Ed Markey. The companys answers, the lawmakers said, revealed alarming new details.

In a letter to the Department of Justice, the senators said RealPage did not provide all the information they had asked for last November, but the answers the company did give raise concerns that its YieldStar software may play a role in driving rent inflation in some of the countrys biggest markets.

YieldStar has been most prevalent in some of the regions most heavily targeted by corporate buyers and with the highest rent increases, the senators wrote.

The legislators said that publicly available information shows the software is used in pricing more than 4 million units, representing about 8% of all rental units nationwide. RealPage has so many clients it has access to tr...

Reducing Water Usage Around the Home "IndyWatch Feed National"

Since most of us are used to having access to clean water, we tend to take it for granted. We dont think twice about leaving the tap on or taking a really long shower. More concerningly, some of us dont even think about the financial and environmental consequences of wasting water on a daily basis.

If we want to save money and preserve this natural resource, we need to be more efficient with our use of water.

Luckily, there are many ways to reduce water usage. Even the smallest change can have a big impact on reducing your overall water consumption.

In this blog post, well explore some of the best ways to save water.

  1. Install Low-flow Faucets and Showerheads
    Installing low-flow faucets and showerheads is one of the most effective ways to reduce water usage. Low-flow faucet aerators limit the amount of water being used by around 2 to 4 litres per minute.

    This can help you save a significant amount of water with everyday tasks like washing dishes, brushing your teeth, and taking a shower.

  2. Use a Dishwasher
    You should also consider using your dishwasher more often as opposed to always washing your dishes by hand. Not only will this make the process easier and quicker, but it can also help you reduce water usage significantly.

    Dishwashers typically use one-eighth of an average kitchen taps flow rate, meaning theyre much more efficient when it comes to conserving water. Additionally, dishwashers are also better at killing germs than hand washing since they produce hotter water, which helps to effectively sanitise your dishes. So, the next time your kitchen is full of dirty dishes and cutlery, go for the dishwasher instead of the sponge.

  3. Turn Off the Tap When Youre Not Using It
    Kitchen Renovations MelbourneEach time you brushyour teeth, shave, or shower, think about the amount of water youre wasting. Do you have the tap on full blast while you scrub those pearly whites? Do you leave the shower on for too long while its heating up? All these seemingly harmless habits can waste a lot of water over a long period of time. Wasting heated water is also a significant concern as it can add to your utility bills and increase your personal carbon emissions.



5 Most Common Problems with Removal Companies "IndyWatch Feed National"

Moving homes in the near future? If so, one of the first things on your checklist should be to find a reputable, trustworthy removalist company to help make your move as smooth and easy as possible.

Unfortunately, theres a fair share of removalists out there that you have to watch out for. But, as long as you do your research, you should be able to avoid some of the common problems associated with moving. What are these problems? Lets break them down below.

Missing Items

No matter how organised you are with packing and labelling your boxes, if you and your movers arent on the same page then theres a very strong chance that youll end up losing or at least temporarily misplacing some items.

Moving days are almost always chaotic and stressful, so you might not even realise something is missing until days later. All this time having passed can make finding your items incredibly difficult, especially if you were working with movers who were unprofessional or untrustworthy.

Reliable Removalists will safeguard all of your possessions big and small and have a tried and tested plan in place to move everything safely and securely. To achieve this, theyll need to be organised, experienced and have strong communication skills, all important attributes of a good removalist.

Damaged Possessions

One of the most common moving-day problems is damaged furniture and smaller items, with inexperienced movers dropping, scratching or bumping your furniture or boxes around and leaving them tattered or even broken.

As long as you take the time to research your moving company before you hire them, you shouldnt run into this issue. There are even many removalists who specialise in moving fragile, high-value items such as pianos and antiques. You can also protect your most valuable items by working with a removalist company that offers storage solutions, so that you can keep these items out of the way during the mess and stress of moving day.

eX-detainee Refugees who arrived by boat in Australia strongly condemn the UK governments proposed adoption of Australias neo-fascist, anti-refugee stop the boats blue-print "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

RISE: Refugees, Survivors and eX-detainees is the first not-for-profit Refugee and Asylum seeker organisation in Australia to be governed by eX-detainee Refugees. We were founded in 2010 by an eX-detainee who was held hostage in both offshore and onshore detention camps after arriving by boat to Australia to seek asylum.

We eX-detainee Refugees from RISE who were detained upon arrival by boat in so-called Australia are alarmed by the UK governments proposed stop the boats bill.  We cannot call it a mere coincidence that the current British ruling political party is touting these xenophobic policies while at the same time employing white supremacist Australian election campaign managers who have a long history of using anti-refugee wedge tactics to win elections in Australia at the cost of human life. Former Australian Prime Minister and current advisor to the UK government, Tony Abbott, has demonstrated an eagerness to spread this neo-fascist model in a past statement, saying that Europe is facing a peaceful invasion of asylum seekers while urging European leaders to secure their borders with Australian-style policies to avoid losing control as they risk losing their character. Australia is notorious for creating the modern blueprint of refugee detention torture and refugee boat turn back policies over decades to whip up xenophobic, white supremacist sentiments for votes. Many of us eX-detainee refugees are permanently disabled, and many of our community members have lost their lives on land and sea due to these murderous policies.

According to our experiences in Australia, the stop the boats and boat turns back policy has caused a permanent blockade of the right to seek asylum in Australia by boat. Persecuted refugees have no choice but to make perilous journeys, traversing both land and sea to seek refuge and safe haven. Australia undermines this wholeheartedly and turns refugee boats back into the arms of persecutors without any accountability. The Australian government implements this final solution against refugees by brazenly participating in joint military operations and espionage activities with military dictatorships and war criminals and funding corrupt government officials in the Asia Pacific to stop people smuggling and save deaths at sea. We, eX-detainees in Australia, call on UK-based rights supporters and politicians to stop more crimes against humanity by blockin...

The traditional theory of human evolution is predicated around humans having an ancient chimp/ape ancestry. Way back a chimp-like mummy and daddy had children that were genetically so different, of particular concern is the suturing on the skull exclusive to hominids. All apes and monkeys have no sutures, but instead a rigid sagittal keel that runs across the top of the skull which means that their skull size remains static. But the inconsistencies do not stop there, by our count there are at least another seventeen genetic/skeletal/facial/muscular points of difference that challenge any shared ancestry.

                Granted be it ever so improbable, there could be an infinitesimal chance these two non-sutured parents carried a genetic abnormality that gave rise to suturing, but it just doesnt end there. By our count there are seventeen other distinct genetic deviations from every ape/monkey norm, and just the sheer volume of these contradictions leads on to one inescapable conclusion: our ancestry and that of the monkeys/apes have nothing in common. It just did not happen, simply because it just isnt one species of apes but every animal on this planet that obeys the same rules of evolution and genesis.

International Red Cross Says 2 Kidnapped Staff Freed in Mali


OUAGADOUGOU, Burkina Faso (AP) Two aid workers with the International Committee of the Red Cross were freed in Mali on Monday, the organization announced.

The staff members were released unharmed but the organization would not disclose the employees identities or the circumstances of the abduction.

We are relieved to find our colleagues safe and sound. They will be reunited with their families as soon as possible, said Antoine Grand, head of the ICRC in Mali. The staff were kidnapped earlier this month in the countrys north between the towns of Gao and Kidal, part of the country riddled by jihadi violence linked to al-Qaida and the Islamic State group thats killed thousands in the last 10 years.

The ICRC said it has been operating in Malis north region for more than 30 years and said it will continue its humanitarian work in the country.

Jihadi groups have been abducting hostages for ransom as a way to fund their operations and expand their presence. There is no indication that ICRC paid a ransom for the release of their employees.

At least 25 foreigners and untold numbers of locals have been kidnapped in the Sahel the vast, semi-arid expanse below the Sahara Desert since 2015, according to the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project. Several foreigners remain captive according to the organization, including Rev. Hans-Joachim Lohre, a German priest kidnapped in Malis capital Bamako in November.

Others still detained include Australian doctor Ken Elliott and Romanian national Iulian Ghergut, who was abducted from a mine in Burkina Faso and has been held since 2015.

The kidnapping of humanitarian staff by armed groups is usually done to interrogate them and make sure the aid group is doing is what they say theyre doing.

Violent extremist groups engage in kidnappings for several reasons, and is very much based on local realities and needs, as well as the level of influence they have...

India asks 68 countries to renegotiate ISDS in bilateral investment treaties "IndyWatch Feed National"

March 21, 2023: The Times of India has reported that India issued termination notices to 68 countries for Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs) with a request to renegotiate on the basis of the model agreement formulated in 2015.

These 68 BITs were based on a 1993 model which had been amended in 2003. Alarmed at actions taken against it using the Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) provision in these BITs, the Indian government developed a new model for investment treaties in 2015. India has a further six BITs under the old model, but these are not yet open for a notice of termination. There are two BITs negotiated since 2015, on the new model, and these are in force.

Minister of State for External Affairs Rajkumar Ranjan Singh said the government has signed a host country agreement with the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) for establishing a regional office in India. His Ministry is now working with the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), the PCA and other agencies to develop their capacity to manage international arbitration challenges.

Under the 2015 model, the controversial Most Favoured Nation clause was removed, and the scope of National Treatment and Fair and Equitable Treatment clauses is considerably narrowed.

Although ISDS which allows investors to initiate international arbitration against states and thereby bypass domestic courts entirely has been retained, access to ISDS comes only after the exhaustion of the relevant domestic courts for the resolution of an investment dispute.

The 2015 model provides an exhaustive list of economic, environmental and social measures which are exempt under the treaty. This includes taxation, intellectual property rights and measures to protect macroeconomic stability.

The current move to terminate 68 BITs follows a 2016 attempt to terminate 57 BITs. The India-Australia BIT was terminated by India on March 23, 2017, but it has an extraordinary grandfather clause that means its provisions apply to investments made before that date for another 15 years. The Indian Adani coal company threatened to use ISDS to sue the Australian government if its investments made before the termination were harmed by government regulation.

The Interim Australia India Economic Partnership Agreement signed in 2022 did not have an Investment Chapter and so did not contain ISDS. AFTINET is...

What We Know About Irvo Otieno and the 10 People Charged in His Death "IndyWatch Feed National"

From CNN: Three of the 10 people facing murder charges in the death last week of a 28-year-old Black man at a Virginia mental health facility were security guards at the hospital who watched and then participated in the fatal smothering, the prosecutor told CNN Friday.

The victims family wants answers as to how a promising musician having what they called a mental health crisis ended with him dying and why no one stood up for him and kept him from being killed.

The county prosecutor said seven law enforcement deputies, joined by the hospital workers, smothered him to death while restraining him.

Ive never seen anything like this, Commonwealths Attorney Ann Cabell Baskervill said, referring to unreleased video that shows the mans death.

Baskervill said the hospital security guards passively watched the alleged smothering but eventually joined in and piled on top of the victim along with the deputies . . .

Family attorneys say Otieno posed no threat to the deputies.

This years Harmony Day faces new challenges in combating hate "IndyWatch Feed National"

Contributed by Joe Montero

Today 21 March is world Harmony Day and the big day in a week of activities, where we celebrate the gifts brought to all of us by people from diverse Backgrounds. This year the theme is everyone belongs. Harmony Day origin can be traced back to south Africa, where on this date in 1960, police fired live ammunition into a crowd of black people in a black township called Sharpeville, who were demanding the abolition of the pass laws. These laws had taken away their right of freedom of movement. Sixty-nine unarmed people were killed. Images of what happened reverberated around a shocked world.

Photo from The Journalist context matters: Burying the Sharpeville dead.

The killing became known as the Sharpeville Massacre. It gave rise to the global anti-Apartheid movement, and this contributed hugely to the advancing the cause against racial intolerance everywhere.

Less than a decade later the United Nations proclaimed March 21 the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Intolerance still exists in some quarters. It is usually often more subtle than it once was. The fact that it exists shows the cause not yet completely won. at the same time, there are good reasons to celebrate the achievements.

Australia is a good example. The diversity of peoples is building a new nation with a unique and exiting multicultural culture.  We are much better off for it. Hasnt this change brought about a greater depth and variety of what we eat, enriched overall culture and lives?

I remember what it was like when I first arrived in this country as a youngster. Because of my surname, I was called a Dago. This meant Italian. Although not Italian, I know something of what the Italians went through. I know how intolerance invited derision and sometimes violence. Italians were accused of being a threat to the Australian way of life.

Those who still feel threatened and insist multiculturalism is a policy thrust on them, dont yet realise that the term is only a description for what Australia has been since the arrival of the First fleet. The emergence of a multicultural identity can be traced back to the goldfields on the 1850s and the Eureka upris...


Millions of Fish Dead in Australia River Following Low Oxygen Levels, High Temperatures "IndyWatch Feed National"

In Menindee, New South Wales, millions of dead fish have been found in the Darling River. Local authorities and scientists say the die-off event is likely due to high temperatures and low oxygen levels as water from recent floods recedes.

The dead fish are primarily bony herring, or bony bream, and also include murray cod, carp, golden perch and silver perch.

These fish deaths are related to low oxygen levels in the water (hypoxia) as flood waters recede, the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries posted on Facebook. Significant volumes of fish including Carp and Bony Herring, nutrients and organic matter from the floodplain are being concentrated back into the river channel.

According to the Department of Primary Industries, the area has experienced widespread flooding. As the flood waters recede, oxygen in the water depletes. The situation is worsened by a local heat wave, which causes fish to require more oxygen, but the warmer water holds less oxygen.

The department noted that bony herring population tends to boom during floods and often then sees significant decrease as flood waters recede, especially as this species is more vulnerable to low oxygen levels and high temperatures. Similar incidents happened in 2018 and 2019, Reuters reported, where thousands of fish died from extreme temperature changes and poor water quality.

The region has been dealing with high temperatures and flooding, and residents are now grappling with the sight and smell of dead fish in the local river.

Weve just sort of started to clean up, and then this has happened, and thats sort of youre walking around in a dried-up mess and then youre smelling this putrid smell. Its a terrible smell and horrible to see all those dead fish, said local resident Jan Dening, as reported by NBC News.

Locals are also concerned about potential health impacts of the dead fish in the river.

The stink was terrible. I nearly had to put a mask on, local nature photographer Geoff Looney told NBC News. I was worried about my own health. That water right in the top comes down to our...


Donald Trump Drives His MAGA Base Down Tyranny Road( How to Destroy Democracy Brick by Brick)....And How Cleta Mitchell is the key to Proving Trump's Georgia Election Interference Crimes "IndyWatch Feed National"

Written by Grant G

Dictatorships, third world countries, tyrannies and the death of America are Donald J Trump's latest refrains on Truth Social, which get repeated widely on Twitter, Facebook, along with many other social media sites......Donald Trump is now calling on his supporters, on Republicans and anyone else to protest in the streets over his impending soft arrest(surrendering in person to an indictment regardless of the severity of the charge).

Trump wants the country to rage and protest in the streets over the fact he has to answer for crimes, for his crimes, albeit crimes(The Stormy Daniels affair and hush money cover-up) that are very minor in the scheme of things.

Donald Trump is getting his MAGA base all frothy and threatening over these minor criminal charges against him, a crime he is 100% guilty of, he had the tryst, cheated on Melania, with Stormy, he had Michael Cohen pay off Stormy to keep her silent, then Trump through financial accounting tricks used donated campaign funds to pay the hush money, he ran the payments through the Trump organization and even claimed it as a tax deductible business expense....

That is the crime for which he must answer to next week, in person. 

An indictment means, for Trump,  a quick pre-arranged arrest and, just as quick, a prearranged release from custody....Trial date(s)and appearance dates scheduled.....These crimes, even when Trump is found guilty will not result in ANY prison time and still Trump deems this action as grounds for mass protests and mayhem in the streets......(gimmee a fucking break, oh the humanity, Trump having to answer for crimes, fucking snowflake)

 Here is what Trump has bleated in the last few hours....(The all caps are Trump's doing)

Victoria Police covering up child abuse in Mildura? "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Victoria Police have been covering up crimes of people in positions of authority, especially their 'bosses' you know those in government, since their inception in 1853.

NEVER forget that the colonys criminals (albeit better behaved ones), instead of 'honourable' people, were recruited by the government to become police officers, where they have evolved into a more formidable (criminal) force.

Today its very difficult to get an officer charged by our corrupt legal system.

Even if the police get caught by the serfs committing criminal offences, their brethren in the judicature will exonerate them of any alleged wrong-doing.

Those who arent are the scapegoats, only for display purposes to give the serfs the illusion that justice exists.

It seems that police have been covering for Monseigneur Day from Mildura with regards to child abuse.

As the saying goes: We investigated ourselves and found we did nothing wrong.

Heres Deputy Commissioner of the day, Neil OLoughlin to the rescue.
