Australian Senate passes motion acknowledging "alleged" persecution of Julian Assange The feckless motion did not demand Assange's freedom, nor condemn his threatened extradition to the US.
What's the matter with the Ozzies that they even betray their own journalists, let alone any others?
Many countries are much more concerned than them about this attack on the press.
10 November 2020 ... The motion was the first to be passed in either house of the federal parliament that is in any way supportive of Assange, since the British police illegally arrested him in April 2019. It is one of only a handful of times the WikiLeaks founder has been mentioned in parliament following last month’s conclusion of the final British show trial hearings for his extradition on unprecedented US espionage charges, on which he could be jailed for life.
The impetus for the motion was undoubtedly concern over popular hostility toward the complicity of the parliamentary establishment in the railroading of an Australian journalist and publisher.
Over 150 legal experts and lawyers’ associations around the world condemned the British court proceedings as a legal travesty. A group of 161 prominent international political figures, including 13 former national presidents, similarly denounced the hearings as a sham and demanded Assange’s immediate freedom.
Oh, wait a moment, they have a potentially huge scandal over the conduct of their own troops in Afghanistan. One can understand why they hate whistle-blowers and seek to cover up war-crimes.
I could never see the image in those magic eye paintings.
"Heavy rainfall around the towns of Gunnedah and Tamworth is swelling rivers and waterfalls and delighting farmers celebrating an "unbelievable" end to a drought many of them thought would never be over."
In La Nina years, Australia gets more rain than it knows what to do with. Prepare for floods.
I wish it would rain over here in WA.
I've had enough of this heatwave.
What on earth is happening?
Google are pissed off because Australia is asking them to pay for their news content.
There are plenty of search engines out there that don't take any of your data for tracking purposes.
Google is worried we are setting a precedent that will cost them money globally.
