Every important colonial building in Sydney was placed upon a significant First Nations city site

Sydney City number 2

Sydney's current city is probably the largest urban system ever built from, and upon, an existing city framework and it was built in an unholy silence. So says Sydney based Peter Myers who was an architect on the design team of Jørn Utzon's famous Sydney Opera House at Bennelong Point.

TOXIC STATE - Australia's double standards

Julie Bishop’s recent support of the English demands to go after Russia over the alleged misuse of military-grade nerve agent to poison a known double agent on English soil demonstrates the double standards of Australia. Australian farmers and other sectors are using herbicides and pesticides with chemical components similar to high-grade military poisons, e.g. DDT, 2-4-5-T & mustard gas, which is used to kill weevils in grain silos and rabbits in warrens.

And I wondered what celebration or reproach the 10th anniversary of the Northern Territory National Emergency Response, the Intervention that was militaristically launched with extraordinary media fanfare on 21 June 2007 might elicit.

The answers to this question are threefold. Read more about The debilitating aftermath of 10 years of NT Intervention

Five attempts on my life, character assassination, to push government agendas

Unfortunately a Facebook administrator and a handful of people are using a standard strategy to divide and conquer. This is in opposition to the purpose of the Aboriginal Embassy, which is to unite our people through a common cause. There are a few who are using this platform to pursue the agenda to character assassinate me personally, and to discredit the core purpose of the Sovereign Union. - - Ghillar, Michael Anderson, Sovereign Union Convenor, counters the most recent defaming detractors ...      Read more about Five attempts on my life, character assassination, to push government agendas
