Australia’s discrimination of no Medicare to its incarcerated is obscene

Australia’s governments must end health discrimination in its prisons. An incarcerated child must not be a second-class citizen. Nor any adult. We must ask, why are our governments dishing the vulnerable jailed, second-class healthcare? When evaluating the nation’s carceral system, we are unable to make it to the second level of Maslow’s pyramid before encountering a deprivation […]

Australia’s governments, laggards on homelessness

The campaigns to end homelessness must be relentless. It is up to us to make governments respond to the will of the people. The Federal Government, in December 2014, de-funded Homelessness Australia, the peak advocacy body. Homelessness Australia operates on a voluntary basis, credit to them, and has no employed personnel. Governments have a bent […]

Don’t trash talk the homeless – a home saves lives

I have dedicated decades to the most vulnerable, so I write as if I speak from the streets. A cry from the alleyways, verge squats and lonely parks. The scale of homelessness, in all its forms, proportionally, is worst in Western Australia, where otherwise the privileged enjoy life in our nation’s wealthiest jurisdiction. Most recently, […]

West Australia is to Australia what once Alabama was to the United States – a mother of injustices

West Australia is the nation’s backwater. It is the mother of injustices, inequalities and the draconian. West Australia and the Northern Territory leave the have-nots that far behind, for many their lot appears irreparable. If there is a Mason-Dixon line in Australia it runs along the borders of the Northern Territory and Western Australia – […]

The intergenerational criminality of the oppressor

I have often written of racism as an ‘original sin’ and of racism as ‘a tool for exploitation’ – here I write of the intergenerational criminality of the oppressor. The theorisation of race is the vehement behemoth borne not of ideology, but of the surrogate politics of exploitation. Racism is a tool for exploitation; for […]
