More on the Bush visit (3:32 pm)
My congratulations to Bob Brown and Kerry Nettle for standing up to the incredibly fascistic behaviour of the Howard Government/White House in parliament this week. For my sake as much as anyone else's, here's a link to Margo's webdiary on Bush in Parliament. Some great stories there. Margo writes:
And that "I love free speech" quote by Georgie really is too much! This while the Australian people's freedom were being methodically and deliberately curtailed during the two presidents' visits. Margo has a really angry webdiary here from Saturday, describing how invited pro-democracy and Tibetan activists were barred from entering the public gallery. Every effort was made to shield Chinese President Hu from all protestors. Bob Brown's press release, as well as the Falun Gong statement, can be read there.
OK I should clarify: My use of "fascistic" is intended to reflect the tight propagandistic control exercised by those in power in order to shield themselves from (and quash) dissent.
