Rally for Refugees

By uniqueusername - 12 November 2009 79

I know that many people have different opinions on this issue but I thought I’d pass this on anyway:

Instead of bringing refugees picked up by an Australian Customs ship to Australia, the Government has tried for four weeks to force them to get off in Indonesia.  Indonesia is not a signatory to the UN Convention and Protocol on Refugees.   Its time Australia met our obligation and processed these people efficiently, rather than spending millions locking them up in various places.

This rally calls for action now to treat these people humanely and expeditiously.

The details are as follows:

5:30pm Friday 13 November 2009
Petrie Plaza, Civic (near the Merry Go Round)

Speakers Include:

Will Mudford, Unions ACT
Amanda Besnan, Greens MLA
And an Australasian Federation of Tamil Associations spokesperson

What’s Your opinion?

It’s no wonder the planet is on a downhill slide as many can’t see the big picture. And why should you? Just go and sit in front of your 7.6Kw aircons, put another tank of juice in your car, have a few more kids, turn on your beer fridge, heck, go and buy a freezer, and then when our dams have all run dry you’ll start blaming someone else.

(I’m not going to give up on you lot!)

And there is my plan for next weekend: drive down the shops, grab some beer to partake in airconditioned comfort and get busy procreating. Top tip!

What about you? What are you up to? A spot of depopulating?

Oh and the second highest was recorded in 1912, third highest was again in 1939…

Just pointing this out.

just pointing out that the highest temperature recorded in NSW was in 1939. So yes, it’s hot, but it’s not unusual…
