Department of Anarchism
In solidarity with The Juice Media who have been threatened – by the Australia Government – with legal action over their Honest Government Aderts, we’ve created the Australia Department of Anarchism.
Although this is a fictitious department we could still be jailed for five years if the proposed changes to the Commonwealth Criminal Code are passed.
Have a listen to the show to find out more, plus Franklin Lopez talking about fascism. And Bad Cop No Donut, and the return of Jepanarchy!!!
Bad Cop No Donut
4ZZZ News – The South Australian Opposition said in August they would install shoot-to-kill powers in the event of a terror threat if they won Government in the March election, however the Police Association says there will be no support of any such laws unless there was full criminal and civil immunity.
The union will meet today for the annual delegate conference, with an expected announcement regarding the shoot to kill laws in the coming weeks.
Complaints made against Corrective Services
The Islamic Council of Queensland (ICQ) made a series of complaints, to the Queensland Corrective Services (QCS), about the behaviour of staff towards Islamic inmates at the Arthur Gorrie correctional centre (AGCC).
The council’s appeal for action was unsuccessful, according to a QCS spokesperson, on the grounds that no further evidence was provided to substantiate the claims.
The GEO Group, who privately owns the AGCC, is aware QCS has received complaints directly from the ICQ which were investigated by QCS.
Footage has emerged from Adelaide of an Aboriginal man being strip searched by police in public.
When the police realised someone was filming the incident they moved into the neighbouring house without consulting the home owners.
Activists blockading a US immigration building in Portland using ‘Sleeping Dragon’ lock-ons, had hoods and ear muffs placed on them.
The police say this was to protect them from power tools used to break apart the Sleeping Dragon.
When presented with the fact there were no power tools, the police still insisted it was for protesters safety.
