SBS And The Eurovision Song Contest: Sugar Coated Indifference To Human Rights New Matilda

The nations multicultural broadcaster could choose to show leadership on a human rights issue that concerns many of its viewers. So far, its chosen another course, writes Professor Stuart Rees.

The brutal occupation of Palestinian lands has been under way for 70 years. The siege of Gaza is into its 13th year. Over five million Palestinian refugees live wretched lives in refugee camps. In the last eight months, 300 hundred Gazans, mostly youth, have been killed by Israeli sniper fire at the Gaza border fence and an estimated 20,000 have been maimed, many for life.

 

Sugar Coated Appeals

In apparent ignorance, or indifference to the rights of Palestinians, within Israel, in the West Bank and Gaza and in numerous refugee camps, SBS Television has been sugar coating appeals to the Australian public to support the Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Tel Aviv in May. Each appeal has been delivered with dollops of treacle, as sickening as if the same ingredient had been poured by an ill discerning chef on any dish.

Accompanied by pictures of a goofy, smiling couple in shiny suits, invitations to vote on a likely Australian singer included the instruction, Australia Its In Your Hands and then the crescendo like statement, Australia Decides.

The sugar coating had not quite ended. Thick icing was on hand. The choice of an Australian singer to go to Israel represented, Australias bid for global glory. Who wrote that? Have they no shame? A parochial nationalism has gone mad.

The same use of treacle as concealment takes place outside the Arts Centre in Tel Aviv where flags advertising the Eurovision Song Contest say, Dare To Dream. Dream of what? Of the same rights and freedoms for Palestinians and Israelis? Dream of an end to Israeli governments overwhelming use of a brutal force in their response to Palestinians demand for their rights to self-determination?

The popular Australian actor Colin Friels has linked the Eurovision Song Contest and Israeli cruelty. Given the siege of Gaza and the slaughter of Palestinians, he says, the televising of the Eurovision Song Contest must not be allowed to artwash Israeli brutalities. I strongly support the boycott of this event and urge others to do the same.

In similar vein, in the UK, 50 artists have written to the BBC saying that Eurovision might be light entertainment, but it is not exempt from consideration of human rights. They have called for artists and broadcasters not to go to Tel Aviv and have asked that the contest to be relocated to another country. Signatories to the petition included Roger Waters, Peter Gabriel, Julie Christie, Miriam Margolies, Mike Leigh and the fashion designed Dame Vivienne Westwood.

Abdul Aziz Muhamat wins human rights award News | Human Rights Law Centre

Abdul Aziz Muhamat, a refugee and human rights defender, who has spent nearly six years detained by the Australian Government on Manus Island, was overnight awarded the prestigious Martin Ennals Award.

The Award is an annual prize for human rights advocates given by a jury of 10 of the world's leading human rights NGOs.

"This award sheds light on the very cruel refugee policy of the Australian Government. It also brings international attention to the dangers and ill-treatment faced by refugees all over the world, including in countries that claim they uphold the Refugee Convention," said Abdul Aziz Muhamat.

Previous laureates include, Harry Wu, a Chinese political prisoner, Asma Jahangir, a lawyer and human rights defender from Pakistan, and Akbar Ganji, an Iranian journalist.

Abdul Aziz Muhamats recognition marks the first time in the Awards history that the human rights defender is someone who is advocating against violations perpetrated by a western developed country and who is at risk because of that state.

"This award is a historic and significant recognition of the courage and endurance of Aziz, who has tirelessly advocated for the rights of refugees held in cruel and inhumane conditions for nearly six years," said Katie Robertson, a Director of Legal Advocacy at the Human Rights Law Centre.

"It also shines a powerful light on the Australian Governments harmful policy of detaining men women and children in offshore camps. This is a powerful reminder that the world is watching."

1779 Jimmy Cook aka Captain Cook met a sticky end at the end of a sharp stick aka spear on the Sandwich Islands aka Hawaii. [1]

1792 - Ann Brookes was sentenced to 14 years transportation for receiving stolen goods from her daughter. She arrived in Sydney on this day in the same ship as her daughter, the Pitt. She died a few weeks later and was buried on 3 March 1792. Her date of death is not known. [2]

1831 - Dr Elyard of Avondale Farm, Woollongong,  noted that Bob, Ned and Johnny (Dharawal men) accompanied Arthur Elyard on a shooting expedition to Lake Illawarra that netted 15 ducks . On the same day, Dr Elyard asked other Aboriginal people to cut bark but they went off hunting possums instead. He observed them smoking possums out of a hollow in a blue gum tree. [3]


1900 I hear pan pipes...run for the hills, Miranda ! According to the fictional book Picnic at Hanging Rock 3 fictional girls went missing during a fictional outing from their fictional snooty private girls school near factual Woodend. Just don't ask about that missing chapter that explains everything.... [4]

1922 - Tasmanian women became eligible to stand for State Parliament. [6]

1942 - The Vyner Brooke, carrying 65 Australian nurses and other refugees from Singapore, was sunk by Japanese aircraft one day after leaving the island. The survivors made their way to Banka Island where one group of nurses were massacred by their Japanese captors.

Got permission to go on the reserve (for 1 hour only), Everyone very pleased with the interviews. The people better off than at Wellington, but not much. Reserve closer in, seemed healthier. Spoke to Mr and Mrs Baxter - very old and very interesting. Apparently town jobs for aborigines impossible to get, shearing jobs pay well but are uncertain and seasonal. Welfare board and police very much disliked. Housing very poor. [9]

A Reminder of Unfinished Business ANTaR

As we turn our minds to another February Closing the Gap speech from the Australian Prime Minister, a practice begun by Kevin Rudd in 2010, we hold in our minds a quiet fear that all this ritual, all these numbers, belie the nagging feeling that we are getting no-where in our attempts as a nation to redress Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander disadvantage. 

To my Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander brothers and sisters I just want to say, ala George in Seinfeld, its not you its me.  Or more to the point, the failure to close the gap is the failure of non-Indigenous governments, institutions and people to close the most important gap - that of our relationship to each other. 

The central fault is our failing to respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples agency, culture and right to self-determination.

After all, our relationship began poorly, Lieutenant Cook (his actual rank) failed to seek the consent of the natives, Governor Phillip tried but failed to create a positive relationship and Governor Macquarie wanted to bring terror to the survivors, not to mention the bringing of disease. 

The lands and waters we now call Australia were possessed by a violent process of gradual eviction and degradation of the environment, something that continues to occur to this day (particularly if mining or potential fracking is involved). 

There has been no consent given and no treaty made.

The failure to treat has meant that our treatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples has created all these gaps, which we belatedly seek to close.  And we keep getting it wrong.  The COAG Closing the Gap policy begun by Prime Minister Rudd was tainted by the continuation of the Northern Territory Emergence Intervention.  The promise of Mabo and the dismissing of the myth of terra nullius was made conditional by the Native Title Act and then tortuous by John Howards Ten Point Plan. 

More recently, after years of discussion and consultation, recognition of the legal status and rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Peoples of Australia, culminating in the gracious Statement from the Heart, was summarily dismissed by the Turnbull Government. 

Each positive step is met and checkmated by non-Indigenous fear to commit. 

We are a nation with arrested development and historical amnesia. To think that the 26th of January could ever be a day of unity for the nation is to make insult and forgetting a national past-time.  If we non-Indigenous Australians had been invaded in the Second World War would we want to celebrate?  To think that singing we are young and free in our natio...

Video: Australians join battle to stop brutal dolphin slaughter in Japan The Pen

Dolphin protectors came to the cove in Taiji, to expose the brutal killing the mammals. People from various countries, including Australia, joined protectors from Japan.

It is full hunting season and Japans law protecting mammals does not cover dolphins, since they are characterised as fish.

Opponents of the slaughter are taking the local governor to court over this wrong interpretation.

They also say that under Japanese law, no person shall kill, injure, or inflict cruelty on animals without reason, and that this is being violated.

Every year 20,000 dolphins and small whales are killed.

International pressure is still needed to put an end to the cruelty.

Viewers are warned that the scenes below can be distressing.

A Deer Ate My Lunch and Broke My Heart Global Hobo

Whoa, hey, no! I said. Dont eat the plastic! Nah, nah!

I managed to pry the deers jaws off the plastic, holding it up in the air. She sniffed around my bag that was on the ground. I think I had an apple in there, but I was hoping to save that for later.

I had just walked down Mount Misen on Miyajima Island and managed to score a stone bench by the water as the tide was coming in, overlooking at the orange and black Shinto floating Torri gateway. I tried to ignore the goo-goo eyed couple that had sat down on the bench the same time as me, as they cooed sweet Japanese nothings into each others ears, choosing to focus on my food instead.

I had finished a date with my mystery sandwich (it was butter chicken curry, who knew!), my mandarin, and juice box when I bit into my carrot and I saw something move over my shoulder. My first thought was that it was someone violating my personal space to get a better shot of the Torri for their gram. When I turned my head to look at the movement, it was actually a teenage doe, eagerly trying to chomp down on my plastic rubbish, and now she was sniffing around for more.

Nah, mate, nah, I said, pulling her head back up. Look, if youre gonna eat anything, you should probably eat this.

I offered her my carrot and she quickly chomped down on it, completely removing it from my grasp.

I thought that would be the end of it, but turns out eating a carrot without opposable thumbs and a strong jaw is harder than it looks. The doe could only really nibble on the carrot. I helped her out by holding the carrot as she gnawed away on it, holding it especially still when she was ready to snap a piece off.

When she did, I cheered. Teamwork!

The tourists that had gathered around me laughed. Some took pictures. Maybe I would be called the Deer Whisperer in some corner of the internet no one ever saw. I didnt mind.

In Nara, there are also wild deer but theyre not quite as abrasive as the Miyajima deer, because they are encouraged to be fed. You can buy special deer crackers to feed them at 150. When I first arrived in Nara, I didnt want to feed them because I didnt want to be one of those tourists. By the end of the day, I was having a bit of FOMO, so I caved and bought the crackers. Like a bad omen, suddenly the once heavily populated deer park was empty. The two deer I did find refused to eat my crackers because they were already well full.

This was much better. Me and Nellie (I had now named the doe) were in this relationship together, having the most beautiful spontaneous interaction. These are my favourite experiences.

The carrot was getting thicker and harder for her to bite. I rinsed it off and bit into it myself, surprised at how easy it was for me compared to Nellie. I bit off small pieces and fed them to her in my flat palm, like they taught us at the horse riding school.

Morrison government diverts embarrassment with return to Howard era response to asylum seekers The Pen

Contributed by Joe Montero.

The passing of the Medical Evacuation Bill was a defeat for the Morrison government. Sort of anyway. The minister can intervene and prevent a medical evacuation and the new law does not apply to new arrivals.

On the other hand, this has been a political setback, underlining the perception that this government is continuing to lose control.

The Medical Evacuation Bill came out of exposures and pressures mounted by doctors on the scene and Manus, and they made the government look particularly brutal in Australias eyes. It has proved to enough to worry and win over the crossbench.

The need to act was pushed in the parliament by new high profile independent Karen Phelps.

Its time had come, because ongoing disclosures and changing public opinion had already forced the process of closing Manus and wanted more.

Acutely aware of its political embarrassment, the Morrison government has tried to cover its position by promising the sky will fall in, via a new flood of boat people and that national security is under an emerging threat.

To underline its claim, the prime minister called a press conference to tell Australia he had convened the national security committee of cabinet to strengthen the capacity of Operation Sovereign Borders, in line with the so-called emerging threat.

Through this use of dishonest politics, Morrison has moved to create the image of a national crisis and hide the details behind a wall of secrecy.

Governments dont do this, unless there is a genuine crisis of some sort, or they are planning to whip up a scare campaign to achieve questionable political objectives. Questionable is the appropriate word here, because a government that has nothing to hide, doesnt have to use subterfuge. It has more to gain by being honest and relying on the trust of the people. What we are going to get, if the attempt doesnt fall over first, is that Australias borders are in peril and this means that extraordinary measures must be taken.

In comes the re-opening of detention at Christmas Island. Offshore detention will not come to an end. It will be rebuilt. To do this, the government is gambling on its ability to create enough fear and division within the Australian community, in the style of John Howard in the 1990s.

It is a political diversion, aimed at saving saving the long running detention policy. But most of all, it is an effort to save a government staring at a major defeat in the coming May election.

Since Morrison took the helm, the public perception of an indecisive, out of control and divided government has only deepened.  Morrison is trying to correct this with the image that he is the firm leader and defender of Australia from those who would harm our interests.

This is a gamble. There is no...

The Defense Intelligence Agency and the Advanced Aerospace Threat and Identification Program Unidentified Aerial Phenomena - scientific research

Freedom of Information Act

Given the lengthy delays in getting responses from US government agencies, under the US Freedom of Information Act, a number of individuals have been pursuing other avenues of obtaining information about the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP.)

On 3 April 2018, US researcher John Greenewald, received an email response from Andricia Harris of the Pentagon, which provided a few details about the AATIP. The following month, on 3 May 2018, Swedish researcher Roger Glassel, also received an email from Harris, which provided yet more details about the program. Glassel's response, which was the longer of the two responses, read:

"AATIP was funded in the July 2008 Supplemental Appropriations Bill (a Sen Harry Reid add). Its mandate, as outlined in a 2009 letter from Reid to DSD, was to assess "far-term foreign advanced aerospace threats the United States," including anomalous events (such as sightings of aerodynamic vehicles engaged in extreme maneuvers, with unique phenomenology, reported by U.S. Navy pilots or other credible source). AATIP terminated in 2012 due to lack of real progress and concerns about the viability of the program."

Glassel asked Harris where the statement "...including anomalous events (such as sightings of aerodynamic vehicles engaged in extreme maneuvers, with unique phenomenology, reported by U.S. Navy pilots or other credible source)" came from? Harris responded that she had no additional information to provide to Glassel.

Approach to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)

In early February 2019, Glassel then decided to approach the Office of Corporate Communications of the DIA, rather than taking the lengthy FOIA process to attempt to resolve what should have been the simple matter of where Harris' additional information came from. I wish to thank Roger Glassel for his permission to quote from his email exchange with the DIA Office of Corporate Communications.

Glassel received an emailed response dated 12 February 2019 from that Office, which read:

"Mr Glassel - Here is the information DIA has shared about the program. The purpose of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) was to investigate foreign advanced aerospace weapons system applications with future technology projections over the next 40 years and to create a center of expertise on advanced aerospace technologies.

1790 - Less than three months after Bennelong's capture, on 13 February 1790, Phillip passed on the names and locations of eight coastal clans in a dispatch to Lord Sydney at the Home Office in London. Bennelong also told Phillip that one-half of those who inhabit this part of the country had died from smallpox.[1]

1855 - A shortage of tenors on the Australian colonial operatic stage often meant that women had to perform male roles; Sara Flower, described by the Melbourne Press as 'the modern Sappho', 'the Queen of song' and 'the Australian Nightingale'  sang Edgardo on this day in the first Australian performance of Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor.[2]

1905 - Marjorie Jean Lyon, surgeon and prisoner of war, was born on this day; she was described by Lady Mountbatten as 'an outstanding woman doctor . . . whose work . . . will make history, and who succeeded in commanding and controlling the Japanese and seeing that they carried out her orders!'

Mortgage brokers campaign is dishonest and hides the hand of the banks The Pen

Contributed by Ugly

The banks have fired their first shot in their fight back against the revelations of the Banking Royal commission.

It takes the form of adds by mortgage brokers, using a graphic Grim Reaper type campaign, which claims to defend competitive interest rates.

Mortgage brokers have been willing partners with the banks, taking a share of years of rip-offs from customers. Now they claim they are protecting the interests of the same customers.

One of the recommendations from Commissioner Kenneth Hayne is that mortgage lenders should no longer be allowed to accept trailing commissions provided by the banks and provide an incentive for widespread abuse.

An add called Dont kill the Competition says it all. Contained within it is the threat that, if they are restricted and the market is not allowed to operate freely, people will be paying more on their mortgage.

The campaign, carried out in the name of the Mortgage and Finance Association, claims that they will be driven into the arms of the banks. Its a clever distortion to manipulate discontent with the banks, to hide what is really going on.

The television advertisement begins with a family walking down a dark corridor with doors labelled non-bank lender, leading credit union and regional lender, slamming shut before them.  The truth is that the banking Royal Commission recommendations are not directed at these.

If the mortgage brokers cant make enough without double slinging their customers, through high direct commissions and the trailing commissions that their customers are ultimately forced to pay, the mortgage lenders are not doing a good job and invite much greater regulation than is the case at present.

This fear based campaign is calculated to scare people away from supporting changes that bring greater regulation to the finance industry, and this includes the banks.

Australia must see this scam for what it is. We must not be duped into forgetting what we have learnt over the last few years.

Eminent economists warn against new e-commerce initiative for WTO AFTINET

February 13, 2019: Chakravarthi Raghavan, an esteemed author of several books on the WTO, and Jomo Kwame Sundaram, former United Nations Assistant Secretary General for Economic Development, have issued a sharp warning to developing countries about the e-commerce initiative recently launched at Davos by a group of rich country governments, including Australia.

They warn first that the idea of an agreement between a minority of World Trade Organisation members on e-commerce, which has not been endorsed by the majority, would be unlawful and undemocratic, allowing a small group of WTO countries to impose their view on the majority.

They warn that the initiative aims to consolidate the power of global technology corporations to gain access to new foreign markets, secure free access to others data, accelerate deregulation, casualise labour markets, and minimize tax liabilities. The negotiations are intended to diminish the right of national authorities to require local presence, a prerequisite for the consumer and public to hold suppliers accountable.

Global corporations want to divert more business through e-commerce platforms. They argue that this will not only reduce domestic market shares, as existing digital trade is currently dominated by a few TNCs from the United States and China, but also reduce sales tax revenue which governments increasingly rely upon with the earlier shift from direct to indirect taxation.

Instead of this threat of data colonialism, Raghavan and Jomo are urging developing countries and civil society organisations to create a development-focused and jobs-enhancing digitization strategy.

Developmental digitization will require investment in countries technical, legal and economic infrastructure, and policies to:

  • bridge the digital divide; develop domestic digital platforms, businesses and capacities to use data in the public interest;
  • strategically promote national enterprises, e.g., through national data use frameworks;
  • ensure digitization conducive to full employment policies;
  • advance the public interest, consumer protection, healthy competition and sustainable development.

They urge international institutions like the WTO to support this approach, which could also apply in other agreements like the RCEP.

Western Australia finally delivers marriage equality for transgender people News | Human Rights Law Centre

Transgender people across Western Australia are celebrating today, following the WA Parliament finally removing outdated laws forcing them to divorce the person they love in order to update their birth certificate.

The changes come following a report by the Law Reform Commission of WA recommending a series of improvements to LGBTQI+ rights, including protections against discrimination based on gender identity and intersex status and removing sex classification from birth certificates. But it has been a long journey for advocates who have been campaigning on this issue since marriage equality was legislated in 2017.

Associate Professor Sam Winter, a long time advocate for transgender equality, and Perth rock guitarist and trans advocate Jaime Page, outside the Western Australian Parliament House.

Associate Professor Sam Winter, a long time advocate for transgender equality, and Perth rock guitarist and trans advocate Jaime Page, outside the Western Australian Parliament House.

On the wonderful day that same-sex marriage become law, I watched with pride as the public gallery celebrated, said Perth rock guitarist and transgender woman Jaime Page.

To me it was one of the most touching scenes ever witnessed in Parliament, as divisions disintegrated and love was all around, barring a few isolated sad faces.

But there was one other slightly sad face - me. After everything we did to get there, I was feeling left out, I was not equal, and neither were many of my sisters and brothers.

We had a new challenge on our hands. We celebrated for the lesbian, gay and bisexual community and hoped for an early resolution to this anomaly, said Ms Page.

Lee Carnie, Director of Legal Advocacy at Equality Australia, said the reform is a significant step in removing discriminatory laws, but theres more to be done.

"Its fantastic to see the Western Australian Government taking steps to remove this discrimination against married trans and gender diverse people, said Lee Carnie.

No one should be forced to choose between being legally recognised for who they are, or staying married to the person they love.

We urge the Western Australian Government to carefully consider the Law Reform Commissions report and introduce laws removing the remaining discrimination...

The Green New Deal approach would be good for Australia as well as the United States The Pen

Contributed by Jim Hayes

In less than two weeks, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proposal for a Green New Deal has gained a great deal of support form the public, and it has generated the ire of the Washington establishment and chiefs of Wall Street.

But what is it?

The Green New Deal takes a leaf out of Franklin Roosevelts New Deal, which began a massive period of infrastructure building to provide work and build the economy during the Great Depression of the 1930s. It was a time of crisis, calling for a bold new approach, sufficient to meet the challenges of the day.

Roosevelts package included an Economic Bill of Rights, providing rights for employment, medical care, housing, education and social security. This part of the New Deal was never implemented. Opposition from vested interests was too strong and the onset of World War Two put the final end to it all.

With only a partial application, the New Deal still managed to improve the lives of many and contributed to planting the seeds for future economic growth.

This makes it very relevant to todays conditions of a new economic decline and the real threat of climate change, which demands a new crisis response

The document Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez presented to Congress, with the backing of Senator Ed Markey, calls for new national, social, industrial and industrial mobilisation, linking the Plan to rights for clean water, healthy food, adequate health care and education, to the need to build a sustainable economy.

There are calls for new buildings to have to meet strict maximum energy efficiency and for old buildings to be upgraded, and transport to be overhauled to eliminate greenhouse gases.

Lowering carbon emissions is tied to the need to guarantee a job with a family sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations and retirement security for all the people of the United States.

This is not about handouts to a passive population. In turns on the mobilisation of people as well as resources, creating conditions favourable for greater democratic participation than has ever been the case before. Democratic participation in turn, can become a force to unleash the enthusiasm, involvement and initiative to push it all forward.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezs proposal is not only relevant to the United States.

A Green New Deal approach to meet the challenge of approaching crisis is equally important for Australia. Similar measures deserve to be hot topics of public debate.

Like in The United States, the approach in Australia will be dismissed outright by the usual suspects. They will argue that the cost is far too high. More to the point, they will continue to insis...

Police Mistake Crypto Mining Rigs For Drug Den in Raid Gone Wrong "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Police in Adelaide, Australia raided the home of Rob Butvila expecting to find a marijuana grow room, but instead they found an elaborate crypto mining set up, complete with a ventilation system to keep heat the miners generate at bay.

Butvila is now considering taking legal action against the local police department after they left the mans home in shambles and are refusing to respond to requests to help with damages.

Police Destroy Mans Home In Search for Drugs, Discover Crypto Miners Instead

Police and other government agencies use a number of tactics to sniff out marijuana growing operations, both at large scale and even in individuals homes. These tactics can include using an infrared heat detector to locate potential light sources emitting heat, watching out for skyrocketing energy bills, or searching for ventilation systems that allow airflow around marijuana plants and help to contain strong odors emanating from grow rooms.

Unfortunately, for crypto enthusiasts, an advanced crypto mining setup can also cause an increase in heat, energy consumption, and a need for complex ventilation that could be mistaken for a grow operation, as Rob Butvila of Adelaide, Australia found out the hard way.

The R Word New Matilda

Theres much to be learned from the recent furore over Kerri-Anne Kennerleys racist outburst, particularly for Kennerley herself, writes Dr Melinda McPherson.

The recent heated on-air screen exchange between Kerri-Anne Kennerley and Yumi Stynes in which Stynes called Kennerleys comments racist has received a great deal of media attention.

There is something about use of the r word in Australia that sparks hyperbolic reaction and offence from its recipients. Almost nobody accused of racism accepts or even contemplates the accusation may contain truth.

For this reason, calling out individual and institutional discrimination is a brave act. Such accusations are usually met with denial and demeaning of the accuser.

Consider Michael Longs experiences in the AFL and his eventual response to the behaviour of Damien Monkhurst. The AFL tried frantically to mediate the issue in private, delegitimising Longs experience by coercing him into a conciliatory publicity shot with Monkhurst. Longs continuing dissatisfaction led to systemic change at the AFL.

Each time an accusation of racism is denied, its targets learn that that their experiences are tangential to the hurt feelings of the accused.

In this most recent case, Kennerley embarked on what can only be described as a vitriolic attack upon protestors whom she claimed were doing nothing practical for Indigenous Australian women. When Stynes asked for evidence of Kennerleys perspective, Kennerley took the surreal step of demanding that Stynes disprove her view.

Stynes moved on to frame as racist the link drawn by Kennerley between Aboriginality and sexual abuse. Kennerly sidestepped that question and returned to her focus on the moral hypocrisy of protesters. Stynes persisted, questioning Kennerleys assertion that protestors, none of whom you know personally, are all lazy and idle. In another outburst, Kennerley replied, I did not say that. Stynes clarified, Youre asking if theyve ever done anything, as though its clear that they havent.

Despite Kennerleys objections, Stynes was spot on. To quote Kennerley, Youd [the protesters would]be better off actually going doing something positive.

At this point, the panel host intervened with a request that things be taken back a notch, stating were all educated people here. Kennerleys perspective can hardly be described as educated. In Moynihans words, everyone may be entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts. Not only did Kennerley fail to engage with the actual topic of discussion about the merits of keeping Australia Day on 26 January (and ergo the merits of a protest) but, having created her own topic, she provided no evidence to support her views. Her attempts at debate were a litany of dog whistling sound bites.

She implied that the issue of a date change is frivolous in the face of more serious practical issues in Aboriginal...

Education The Key For Rohingya Trapped In Coxs Bazar New Matilda

Australia has an obligation to assist one of the worlds most persecuted minorities, writes Orla Murphy from Plan International.

As children around Australia settle into a new school year, in Coxs Bazar, Bangladesh, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugee children are struggling to get an education.

Nearly a year and a half has passed since a brutal military crackdown in Myanmar saw some 730,000 people from the ethnic minority group flee into neighbouring Bangladesh.

Its estimated that there are now 921,000 Rohingya refugees in Coxs Bazar and over half are children.

It may not attract much media attention, but education for children caught up in emergencies and crises is absolutely critical.

For Rohingya children, it provides not just an opportunity for learning, but hope for the future at a time when there remains massive anxiety around the possibility of being forced to return to Myanmar. Bangladesh and Myanmar had announced that repatriations would commence last November despite United Nations investigators reporting ongoing genocide against the Rohingya in Myanmar. Plan International is among a coalition of international NGOs that have called on the governments of Bangladesh and Myanmar to stand by their commitments that the repatriation of refugees would only happen if it is safe, voluntary and dignified.

Our research shows that in times of crisis, adolescent girls in particular face numerous barriers to accessing education and learning opportunities, among many other serious threats. Our team working on the ground in Coxs Bazar sees the challenges girls face there every day.

They tell us one of the biggest threats to girls education is early marriage.

Families fear for their daughters safety in the camps could be contributing to the high rate of early marriage. Plan Internationals research Adolescent Girls In Crisis showed that when families are under pressure and lose livelihoods in times of crisis, the risk of forced child marriage increases. A 2018 Population Council study that looked into the rise of child marriage among the Rohingya in Coxs Bazar found limited access to health services and contraceptives and the absence of well-defined laws and legal processes around documenting marriages in the camps were fuelling the practice, alongside cultural beliefs.

In the severely congested camps of Coxs Bazar, adolescent girls are also vulnerable to gender-based violence, sexual harassment, forced prostitution, and trafficking. Amid all these threats, and the fear they create, Rohingya girls are largely confined to thei...

Female genital appearance: what is normal? Overland literary journal

Anatomical naming of the female genitals has historically been imprecise, vague and confused. For example, what the ancient Greeks termed the nymphe (for the clitoris) would later be applied to the labia minora by the anatomist Vesalius, who thought that the clitoris was a biological abnormality and not a part of the vulva.

Its Not Over Til Its Over: How To Mobilise Against The Climate Violence Perps New Matilda

The science is settled, the debate is over. Now we need to figure out what to do as individuals, and what to do as a collective with the leaders who refuse to do their jobs to combat climate change, writes Dr Richard Hil.

An effective response to climate change requires collective action by all countries and sectors.
Australian Government, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Australia remains one of the most carbon-intensive OECD countries and one of the few where greenhouse gas emissions (excluding land use change and forestry) have risen in the past decade.
OECD, January 2019.

Is it just me, or have you noticed how conversations have changed over recent weeks/months? The climate emergency seems to have crept into every discursive nook and cranny. Theres talk of floods, fires, droughts and associated calamities, and of the prospects for survival as the climate emergency goes through what one commentator refers to as an escalation crisis, meaning that the pace and scale of change is far in excess of what the climate models are telling us. The upshot is that we simply dont know where all this is heading. Its a wicked problem, on steroids a problem over which we (apparently) have less and less control.

Not surprisingly, theres panic in the air. The worlds leading scientists including the 15,000 from 184 countries who signed an open letter in 2017 have exhausted themselves in pleading to governments and corporations to take the necessary action to avoid runaway climate change. In many instances such pleas have been either ignored, dismissed or entangled in webs of sectional interests and realpolitik obfuscation.

The growing sense of concern among scientists, however, has not gone unnoticed among my friends and acquaintances. When the climate thing comes up, Ive seen perfectly well-adjusted people start chewing their nails, fidgeting, staring into the distance, and more than occasionally, quietly weeping. We shouldnt be too surprised by such reactions or what psychologists refer to as ecoanxiety as there is growing evidence that the threat posed by the climate emergency is generating severe mental health problems anxiety, depression and suicide ideation, to name a few.

The fact is that people are becoming more and more attuned to what is happening around them. My own mind is swirling with terrifying predictions about the extinction of all life on earth in a few decades, or, as some are predicting, in 12 years or less. Its hair rising stuff.

And as if all that isnt enough, we still have to put up with so-called denialists-cum-conspiracy-merchants who peddle spade loads of aberrant nonsense that...

What Makes a Person Evil? Gumshoe News

The author and his book

by M Scott Peck

Opinion Editors Note: M Scott Peck (1936-2005) was a psychiatrist who had a very big following as an author, particularly for his book The Road Less Travelled. (1978).

In 1998  he wrote The People of the Lie: the Hope for Healing Human Evil. It contains several chapters about the My Lai massacre in which US soldiers in Vietnam killed civilians. Nowadays we have much cause to wonder about evil, having learned that many citizens in our midst live in a way that is divergent from societys stated values.

AFTINET submission on Australia joining the WTO Government Procurement Agreement AFTINET

February 10, 2019:  AFTINET's submission to the JSCOT Inquiry on Australia joining the WTO Government Procurement Agreement argues that the government has not presented any independent assessment of the costs and benefits of Australia joining the agreement, that would justify Australia's accession. If the Committee recommends that accession should proceed, the Committee should note in its report that the EU has indicated in its conditions of accession that it will seek removal of exemptions for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) through the GPA review process.

The Committee should recommend that future governments retain and strongly defend the exemptions for SMEs, and all other exemptions, including exemptions for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses. in Australias conditions of accession.

The Committee should also recommend that governments retain and strongly defend exemptions for SMEs, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses and other exemptions in the EU-Australia FTA negotiations

The Commonwealth government should undertake a training program for procurement officers to ensure that they are aware of and can implement the full range of SME and other procurement exemptions in the WTO GPA and Australias other trade agreements, and that they are aware of broader definitions of value-for-money and economic benefit.

Then They Buy You the Eat-Lancet Commission Report on Healthy Diets Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

What this homily so popular with activists and politicians is perhaps missing is the feature that arose in late capitalist society then they buy you and its unclear whether that happens before or after the fight, or in place of the fight.

There is currently a dramatic increase in attention paid to regenerative and agroecological farming to combat climate change something we activists and farmers are celebrating but with the cheers must come sobering cautionary tales.

Big Ag and Big Food have a long history of cooption and destruction of positive changes in the system take the farce that is free-range eggs in Australia today, where chickens need only have access to outdoors from giant, stinking sheds where they spend most of their time, and stocking densities can be up to 10,000 birds per hectare. Industrial organics, naturally grown claims, and now the emergence of lab-grown meat as a clean, green alternative are further examples of the subterfuge built into the industrial system.

So when the Eat-Lancet Commission Report Healthy Diets from Sustainable Food Systems was released, naturally many of us read the recommendations and then immediately followed the money. The inimitable Chris Ennis of CERES Community Environment Park wrote a great piece exposing the vested interests of the Eat Foundation and its scientists, with links to big fertilizer company Yara International, and partnerships with global do-gooders as diverse as Nestl and Syngenta. At the launch last weekend in Melbourne, we heard a lot about the promise of the next Green Revolution (hang on, isnt that what got us into this mess in the first place?) and GM, and it sure didnt sound like we were at the launch of a report on how to achieve personal and planetary health anymore.

But what about the content of the report? Are the recommendations any good?

Not really. It starts with the reductive nutritionalist discourse that we need to shift globally to healthy diets, and theyve got the diet for us (but no roadmap for how were going to shift The Entire World to said diet). First off the menu is meat with no distinction between production models for meat, so pastured pork, poultry, beef, and lamb are treated as though they have the same environmental impact as raising animals in sheds and feedlots. And although the report calls for a reduction in sugar, it curiously recommends you get more calories from sugar (120 kcal/day) than from meat (optionally up to 92 kcal/day). An astonishing 291 kcal/day should come from nuts astonishing because the push to eat more almonds is wildly at odds with the negative impacts those thirsty monocultures are having on places like the central valley of Califo...

Police lied about tenure of Informer 3838 by 10 years Corporate Australia

Victoria Police is one of the state's most corrupt organisations.

Unfortunately for the masses the courts actually do support the corruption of Victoria Police, but that rather voluminous topic is for another time.

See article from 6 Feb 2019 by The Age publication of the headline:

Informer 3838 explosive revelation: Police registered informer 10 years earlier than they admitted, commissioner resigns


Explosive information has come to light revealing the defence barrister at the centre of the Informer 3838 scandal was registered as a police informer 10 years earlier than Victoria Police previously admitted.

It has also been revealed that more lawyers have acted as police informers, in a profound breach of confidentiality that will be investigated by the royal commission.

But Attorney-General Jill Hennessy has not said whether any lawyers are currently acting as police informers.

Informer 3838 was registered as a police informer 10 years earlier than previously thought.Credit:Artists
Informer 3838, whose name cannot be published, is a Victorian defence barrister who has represented a whos who of Melbournes underworld, including major drug traffickers, murderers and Mafia figures.

Victoria Police has previously admitted that the woman also known as Lawyer X began providing them information in mid-2003 and was a registered informer from 2005 to 2009. The woman handed on information about criminal associates and clients, some of whom she was simultaneously representing in plea deals and court proceedings.

However, the Andrews government revealed on Wednesday that Informer 3838 was registered as a police informer in 1995.

She was admitted to the bar in 1998.

Some of the men on the lawyer's client list were among the biggest names in Australia's underworld, including murdered gangster Carl Williams, and jailed drug lord Tony Mokbel and his associate, drug trafficker Rob Karam.

The convictions of Mokbel and Karam are now in doubt, along with countless others that could have been tainted by the lawyer.

Why We Invited The Pope To The Arabian Peninsula New Matilda

A path to real peace just requires a compassion and understanding and a little faith, no matter which one you practice, writes Yousef Al Otaiba.

In 1960, two American missionary doctors went deep into the harsh desert of the Arabian Peninsula to set up a hospital in a mud block building with dirt floors and a palm frond roof. For the Bedouins who lived there and practiced Islam, it would be their first experience with modern medicine and their first contact with Christianity.

Over the next few decades, with the encouragement and support from local tribal leaders, the husband-and-wife medical team would grow the hospital, save many lives and cement a lasting legacy of respect and admiration between Christians and Muslims in what would later become the United Arab Emirates.

This week, that legacy will be honoured when Pope Francis travels to the Arabian Peninsula the first such visit for any pontiff. He will celebrate mass in Abu Dhabi with 120,000 of the more than 1 million Catholics who live in the UAE, and visit the local Catholic Cathedral that opened in 1965 on land donated by the government.

The popes visit will send a strong signal across the region and world: People with different beliefs can live, work and worship together. Reverence, respect and compassion are core common values. Prayer is both uniting and unifying.

But not everyone will welcome or embrace the message.

Across the Middle East, we face the menace of extremism. Radical interpretations of Islam represent a tiny minority of those who practice the faith. But often the shrillest voices shout the loudest whether it is on TV, on the internet or in a mosque. They twist and obscure the fact that Islam is a religion of peace. As one article from Dabiq, the English-language magazine of the so-called Islamic State, declared to its secular readers, We hate you, first and foremost, because you are disbelievers; you reject the oneness of Allah whether you realize it or not.

These extreme voices seek to incite crazed followers to do their bidding. They give rise to zealots who carry out hateful, violent deeds against religious and ethnic minorities. Christian Coptic churches are attacked in Egypt. The Yazidi homeland is destroyed in Iraq. The Jewish Museum is bombed in Brussels. And fatefully, it is Muslims Sunni and Shia that suffer the heaviest price of all from the murderous fundamentalists.

South Korea Central Bank Says CBDCs Will Disrupt Financial Integrity "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

South Korea Central Bank Says CBDCs Will Disrupt Financial Integrity

South Koreas central bank has warned that adopting a state-backed cryptocurrency as an official form of legal tender would threaten the countrys financial integrity. In a report, the Bank of Korea (BoK) said such a currency, also known as a central bank digital currency (CBDC), could result in a spike in interest rates and a liquidity crunch.

Also read: Australian Banks Fraudulently Collected Fees From Deceased Customers

CBDCs Will Cause Liquidity Shortages and Interest Rates to Rise

Built on the blockchain, CBDCs are typically issued by central banks to work just like fiat money, but without necessarily replacing bank notes and coins. Korea said at the end of January that it was not considering issuing a government-backed digital currency anytime soon because there wasnt any urgent need for one.

Now, the Asian country has issued a report to back up that decision. According to a newspaper article published in the Korea Times on Feb. 7, the BoK explained that the introduction of a CBDC will replace demand deposits held by local commercial banks. Thats because people will likely prefer the state-sponsored cryptocurrency, which they may deem safer and secure, to the domestic fiat unit, it said.

Zcash Bug Demonstrates the Difficulty of Auditing Complex Cryptocurrencies "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Zcash Bug Demonstrates the Difficulty of Auditing Complex Cryptocurrencies

A recent counterfeiting bug in Zcash demonstrates that the added functionality of so-called second generation blockchains comes at a price. The vulnerability, which existed for years before being patched in October, could have been exploited to generate additional coins. As every major cryptocurrency since Bitcoin has demonstrated, added complexity corresponds with lower security.

Also read: Australian Banks Fraudulently Collected Fees From Deceased Customers

Zcash Vulnerability Lay Undiscovered for Years

On Feb. 5, the Zcash team shared a blog post acknowledging the existence of a bug that had been in place since the privacy coin launched. Discovering its existence would have called for a high level of technical and cryptographic sophistication that very few people possess, claimed Zcash developers. While likely true, this admission has provided little comfort to zcash holders, and doesnt augur well for any future bugs that have yet to be discovered. It stands to reason that any elementary exploits in the protocol will have long since been identified. As such, any critical Zcash bug to surface at this stage can be assumed to require sophisticated knowledge to pinpoint.

Australia's Banking Sector inquiry Reveals Massive Cheating as Banks Collect Fees for Dead Customers

A national inquiry into the misconduct of Australias banking sector has revealed profit-driven malpractice that has shattered customer trust. Some of the countrys largest banks were found guilty of making families homeless and charging fees for non-existent services, sometimes to dead customers. They also caused clients to lose hundreds of millions of dollars through misleading investment advice.

Japan Eyes Global Military Footprint to Expand Political Clout
By Zhou Yongsheng
Global Times
2019/2/5 11:21:05

In April and July, Japan signed the Acquisition and Cross-Servicing Agreement (ACSA), a military logistics pact, with Canada and France respectively. The Japanese government will try to get it approved by the National Diet this year. Canada and France are also advancing domestic procedures for its approval.

The agreement will enable the provision of food, fuel and military supplies between Japan's Self-Defense Forces (SDF) and French and Canadian armies. Japan has also inked ACSAs with the US, UK, Australia and India. Why did Japan sign such an agreement?

After WWII, especially in the late 1960s when Japan became an economic powerhouse, it was no longer satisfied with its status as a military microstate.

In the mid-1980s, Japan accelerated the pace to push its SDF onto the world stage with the aim of becoming a major political power.

In 1996, Japan signed the ACSA with the US, followed by one with Australia in 2010. After the new security law took effect on March 29, 2016, Japan amended the two ACSAs, which enabled more flexible provision of ammunition in wartime between the signatories.

Meanwhile, Japan continued signing agreements with other countries, one with the UK in 2017 and another with India the following year. By exploiting the power of these regional countries, Japan aims to secure military provisions for its SDF in the Indo-Pacific region from the US, Canada, Australia and India and in the North Atlantic region from the US, UK, France and Canada.

This has laid the foundation for Japan to broaden its SDF military activities and ensure military provision with its partners. It is a small-scale bilateral military alliance system centered on Japan. This shows Japan's long-term strategic plan.

Since the 21st century, Japan has clearly labeled China as its biggest real and potential rival. Especially since Shinzo Abe took office, he spared no efforts containing China. During Abe's first term, the Japanese government raised the idea of the "arc of freedom and prosperity." When he became Prime Minister for a second time, the policies advocated...

A crisis in communication: on social isolation Overland literary journal

Id been using the internet a lot. I wondered, was I addicted? Behavioural scientists have linked internet addiction with social isolation. The three subtypes of addiction are: online gaming, sexual preoccupations, and excessive emailing or texting involving a constant compulsion to message or check messages. Did I have any of these?

Criminal Neglect: Our Climate Of Denial In A State Of Emergency New Matilda

Whats this obsession with national security? Lets talk about the climate emergency and the complicity of the powerful, writes Dr Richard Hil.

It is the Australian Governments most important responsibility to do everything possible to keep Australians safe and to maintain our way of life, our values and our freedom. Australian Liberal Party

Given the unprecedented floods in North Queensland, a crippling drought across vast tracts of the continent, record-breaking heatwaves, and the Tasmanian wild fires, is it time for a renewed public conversation about national security? The climate emergency surely demands such, especially since Australia is the worlds leading exporter of coal and one of the biggest per capita emitters of greenhouse gases.

We are facing a deep and enduring crisis of political legitimacy in which governments in the US, Brazil, Australia and elsewhere are pursuing policies out-of-step with popular demands for change. A well-organised and assertive grassroots campaign is needed, not to plead for change from governments, but rather to compel the powerful into action, to hold them to account in order to deal with the threats that are before us.

 

A hot night in Noona

Maxed-out air-conditioners are doing it tough in many parts of Australia. And perhaps nowhere more so, than in the tiny hamlet of Noona in the far west of NSW, 670 kilometres or so west of Sydney, where the night-time temperature on 16 January 2019 refused to drop below a record-busting 35.9C.

Thats pretty hot, right? Some of us are more familiar with Fahrenheit as a temperature gauge which means that Noona sweltered under a staggering 96.6F. Thats super-hot during daylight hours never mind the nocturne. In fact, on the same day the daylight temperature in Noona peaked at over 48C. Make that 118F.

Lets put that into some sort of context. In England yes, the land of the long grey drizzle if and when summer temperatures reach anywhere approaching 90F, the country goes into meltdown literally in some cases. Its when we see the stringy vests, blotchy white legs and beetroot faces. The tabloids blather on about Indian summers and the like. So just imagine if the Poms had to endure 95.9F at night? And you think they whinge now?

Yes, Australia is the driest, hottest continent on the planet and, yes, we get heatwaves during the summer. Theres nothing new about that. But as a result of the climate emergency, we are now experiencing more extreme heatwaves, so much so that the Bureau of Meteorology has added a new colour code to its temperature charts.

US-China trade war threatens a new cold war AFTINET

Chinese and US trade negotiators meet in Washington again next week to try to reach an agreement to avoid a massively escalated tariff war from March 1. Without a deal, US punitive tariffs on US$200 billion of Chinese imports will go up from 10 per cent to 25 per cent, and China is likely to respond in kind. The US is blocking appointments to the World Trade Organisation appeals body, and threatening to leave the 164-member WTO.

The tariff wars have already slowed economic growth in both China and the US, with impacts on other economies. According to the International Monetary Fund in January 2019, the tariff wars have contributed to risks to global growth tilt[ing] to the downside and its global economic growth forecast has been downgraded since October 2018.

Sydney Morning Herald International Editor Peter Hartcher argues that there are three positions within the White House, from which President Trump will choose:

  • The "traditionalists", including Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, who will settle for China buying a lot more US products.
  • The "structuralists", including Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, who also want China to change intellectual property law, market access laws and to end the privileged treatment of Chinese state-owned enterprises.
  • The "decouplers", led by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who believe that the two systems are irreconcilable. Hartcher reports that Ross has been urging US CEOs to take investments out of China. This is combined with threats of a new cold war and escalation of the nuclear arms race.

China has refused to abide by international court rulings on its claim to islands, reefs and shoals in the South China Sea, but still claims to support multilateral trade rules through the WTO.

The US is trying to impose a global shut out of the Chinese communications...

Minister Matt Canavan running a protection racket for Adani, takes cheap shots at the United Nations

We all know the feeling of being stuck on Netflix. Exhausted by the day we had today. Exhausted by the day well have tomorrow. Stalled, browsing, waiting for something to crest above the threshold of boredom so that well click; vainly hoping that well find something good enough to entertain, but maybe not too good that we come out further fatigued.

Australia Has One Of The Oldest Human-Made Structures On Earth. Meh? #NMFHPOTAE New Matilda

We love our history in Australia. Just so long as its white. Chris Graham explains.

Just over a week ago, shortly after I set off on the New Matilda Fantastical Historical Political Outback Tour Aboriginal Edition (#NMFHPOTAE), news broke that the grave of Matthew Flinders had been discovered underneath a railway station in London. Flinders, of course, was regarded as one of Australias great early explorers and the first European to circumnavigate the continent.

The story broke the day before Australia Day, when we celebrate the arrival of the British and the date marking the beginning of the brutalisation of our First Peoples. So you can imagine the orgy of self-congratulatory commentary that followed, as though we had anything at all to do with the discovery of Flinders grave, let alone his achievements.

One person who actually did have a lot to do with the latter, however, was an Aboriginal man named Bungaree. You possibly havent heard of him.

Bungaree, from the Kuringgai people north of Sydney, accompanied Flinders on his voyage and provided a vital service as a diplomat of sorts, as the crew encountered other Aboriginal nations around the continent.

Remarkably, however, to this day there remains very little recognition of Bungaree, and not a single statue or plaque anywhere on the continent acknowledging his contribution. On the upside, there is a statue in England honouring Flinders cat, Trim, who also went along for the trip.

A British statue of Trim the Cat, one of Matthew Flinders companions on his circumnavigation of Australia.

While Flinders grave was discovered beneath the London underground, Bungaree is believed to be buried in an unmarked grave somewhere in Sydneys affluent eastern suburbs.

This official indifference was a timely reminder for me, because I was soon to pass through the remote NSW town of Brewarrina, a predominantly Aboriginal community in the far north west of the state.

Bre, as the locals call it, has a population of around 1,000. It also happens to be home to the Brewarrina Fish Traps known as Baiames Ngunnhu [pronounced By-ah-mees noon-oo]b...

Banks are Better than Bitcoin (When It Comes to Money Laundering) "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

On September 28, 2018, the Wall Street Journal published a report which claimed that criminals laundered nearly $90 million of proceeds via cryptocurrency exchanges over two years. The piece mainly targeted ShapeShift, a US-based crypto-to-crypto exchange, for facilitating trades without identifying the traders.

In his response, ShapeShift CEO Erik Voorhees provided convincing examples of how the Journal misconceived everyday transactions as dubious. He also accused the US publication of omitting relevant information and of cooperating with ShapeShift team under pretenses.

While Voorhees understandably defended his firm with facts, no one can deny that criminals use cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin to launder money. For instance, darknet Silk Road was Bitcoins first credible use case. In another example, a youth illegally traded $750,000 via his bitcoin exchange service. In another one, a drug trafficking ring in Europe laundered $9.1 million through a Finland-based crypto trading company.

However, banks proved that bitcoin-based criminal activities were peanuts in front of their massively scaled and inhumane financial crimes.

Contrasting Financial Crimes

On September 19, 2018, Denmarks largest bank, Danske Bank, confirmed that its Estonian branch had illegally funneled $230 billion from Russia to Europe. That was 25,000 times more than what ShapeShift allegedly laundered. In fact, that was more significant than the combined market capitalization of cryptocurrencies at that time.

Furthermore, there was a shocking revelation connecting a Danskes financial crime with the death of a Russian lawyer named Sergei Magnitsky. As highlighted by Forbes journalist Frances Coppola, Danske was instrumental in hiding money embezzled by the Putin-led Russian government. That money also included $230 million tax revenue collected from Hermitage Capital Management.

But pot called the kettle back as the Russian government accused Hermitage of tax evasion. CEO Bill Browder attempted to fight the charges with the help...

Gympie, Whilst Australia Looks The Other Way, Again Forgotten Origin

ROCKY RIDGE / GYMPIE PYRAMID SITE:

 

SACRED KABI COUNTRY

TO BE DESTROYED FOR ROAD

WHILST AUSTRALIA LOOKS THE OTHER WAY, AGAIN

 

Erik Bower Jan 2019

 

For years the bulldozers have been encroaching.

And finally they are here waiting.

Australia 2019.

The Queensland Government about to put a road through

Land sacred to the existing Kabi people

Land of great possible significance in a world history context

Why is the Queensland Government disregarding the traditional custodians and even their own imposed processes professed to manage cultural issues?

Why do

The Hon. Mark Bailey MP., The Queensland Government Minister for Transport and Main Roads and,

Hon. Yvette Darth MP., Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, Leader of the House,

refuse to respect the rights and customs of the traditional landowners and making out there is no way around this?

 

Unexplained correlations between continents

Rocky Ridge aka the Gympie Pyramid site has never been adequately or publicly explained in terms of its origins in a world history context it just hasn"t.

I cannot talk for the Kabi people. They are doing a fine job of that themselves.

I can only talk from the perspective of an interested historian an outsider at that being also white & English.

The Gympie Pyramid site is known throughout the world as a potential site of significance in a world historical context among the non-mainstream as well as for its Aboriginal context.

This is mainly due to it having that name. Pyramid conjures up scale and grandeur beyond what lies there now and likely the site was never what most would consider a true pyramid.

But since pyramids of differing styles and antiquity crop up in so many countries and continents it draws wide interest from many disciplines which Wikipedia like to neatly call fringe theory, pseudo archaeology / history, conspiracy theory or whatever it takes to keep the status quo.

By all accounts if you disregard the Kabi peoples" story entirely for a minute and only consider this in terms of contemporaneous or pre existing examples the site, at least, consisted of terracing with retaining walls, which may in places, have had the appearance of a step pyramid.

There is other circumstantial evidence regarding megalithic structures on top of the site, artefacts from that area, tunnels, the gold signature of Gympie, etc etc, but in general, terracing seems to be agreed in all sources so lets just say it"s that.

In Wikipedia this terracing is explained as the work of Italian farme...

US mining company KCA sues Guatemala for US$300 million AFTINET

February 4, 2019: US mining company Kappes, Cassiday & Associates (KCA) made a US$300 million arbitration claim last December against Guatemala to the World Banks International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) over alleged violations of the Central America-Dominican Republic Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR). Eleven international organisations have condemned the suit.

Since 2011, the communities of San Jos del Golfo and San Pedro Ayampuc have denounced the potential environmental and health impacts of KCAs Progreso VII Derivada gold mine project. In 2016, Guatemalas Supreme Court suspended KCAs operations over failure to consult with Indigenous people, which the Ministry of Energy and Mines and the company have appealed to the Constitutional Court. Instead of respecting Guatemalas democratic and judicial processes, KCAs ISDS action pressures the government to restart the mine, or otherwise pay the company hundreds of millions of dollars in lost potential profits.

Local communities have maintained a peaceful encampment, known as La Puya, and have resisted repeated violent eviction attempts, suffering repression by state and private security forces. They argue that KCA and the state have failed to credibly evaluate the impact that the gold project would have on water supplies in a region with high levels of naturally-occurring arsenic.

Parrot or Perish? THING2THING

Unfortunately we dont always practice what we preach The US Constitution is the worlds model for press freedom for the last 300 years, when the First Amendment was born. But after almost a century of refinement in the processes of information management, challenges to what the state declared as truth were rare, and usually dismissed as conspiracy theories (a term weaponised by the CIA in the late 1960s to quarantine certain events as off limits to inquiry or debate).

The internet, and specifically citizen-generated media has now made the flow of information impossible to control, and official narratives are being ruptured at the seams by insider threat whistle-blowing and fearless independent investigative journalism. Pressure has come down on career journalists to parrot or perish, and as the ABC has somewhat ironically pointed out, China has been hammering journalists who report truthfully in a way that criticises the state, by attributing hundreds of negative social credits to them, and ruining lives

We have recently learned that Microsoft and News Guard plan to silence the voice of independent media in the run-up to the 2020 elections, but is this what we want? We have indeed fallen into a schizoid and pervasively adversarial state, due to the contradictory information being delivered to us (even by POTUS), but faith in official narratives will not survive another generation if consistency and lawfulness are not restored.

EAC Leaders Head for Arusha Talks Amid Growing Trade War
THURSDAY JANUARY 31 2019

In Summary
Ministers from the region on Wednesday held a meeting in preparation for the event just a day after principal secretaries concluded theirs on Tuesday at the same venue.
The heads of states will be looking into reports on how previous decisions by the councils have been implemented with trade and regional politics expected to be heavy on the agenda.

By EDWIN OKOTH
Kenya Daily Nation

East African presidents are expected to meet Friday in Arusha for the 20th Summit of the EAC Heads of States, an event they cancelled twice last year.

Ministers from the region on Wednesday held a meeting in preparation for the event just a day after principal secretaries concluded theirs on Tuesday at the same venue.

The heads of states will be looking into reports on how previous decisions by the councils have been implemented with trade and regional politics expected to be heavy on the agenda.

Among the items on the agenda of the 38th council are reports on the: Implementation of previous decisions of the council; Office of the Secretary-General; report on planning and infrastructure; productive and social sectors; political matters; customs and trade; finance and administration matters; other EAC organs, reads a statement from the EAC secretariat.

The region has been recording a decline in intra-regional trade due to the existence of various non-tariff barriers (NTBs) created by member states to discourage imports from neighbours.

The scenario has allowed for the influx of cheap Chinese imports into the region in what the East African Business Council decried in the last Sectoral Council on Trade, Industry, Finance and Investment meeting in November 2018.

Total trade in the EAC registered a decline of 19.5 per cent to $44.6 billion in 2016 from $55.4 billion in 2015, according to the EAC Trade and Investment Report 2016 partly due to persistent NTBs in the region.

Kenyan traders have been complaining bitterly over such barri...

Reparation: the colonisers fear of admitting the truth of invasion | Sovereign Union - First Nations Asserting Sovereignty "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Reparation: the colonisers fear of admitting the truth of invasion | Sovereign Union - First Nations Asserting Sovereignty: Ghillar, Michael Anderson 27 January 2019

One of the slogan chants of the Invasion/Sovereignty Day March in Sydney was "No accident, it was murder!", referring to the continuing and spiralling number of deaths in custody. International lawyers are now referring to First Nations Peoples Deaths in Custody as being attributed to State-sanctioned death squads. People wanting to know need to do research on this. It is in fact an untold story that is operating world-wide, but perfected in Australia.

Another slogan was "What do we want - Land Rights; When do we want it now!" All those years ago the militant young Blacks of the 1960s and 1970s succeeded in smashing PM Billy McMahons policy of leasing back land to First Nations Peoples, the owners of the country. But today, with the assistance of wilfully assimilated First Nations Peoples, centralised power and ownership of land is now a reality and as the current cries now state: "Native Title is NOT Land Rights."

Farm Day Out: A music fest for lovers of good, fair food! Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance

The Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) is hosting the inaugural Farm Day
Out at Jonai Farms in Eganstown, Victoria on 17 March 2019.

Its a day on the farm meets music festival, where one can meet local farmers, catch
a dance-inducing line-up of live music, and sink your teeth into some delicious local,
ethical & ecologically-sound food, while kicking back in the rolling hills outside
Daylesford.

Best of all, the event is a fundraiser in support of farmers and their allies working
towards sustainable and regenerative food systems. At a time when Australia is
suffering drought and our rivers are dying from the worst excesses of industrial
export-oriented agriculture up north, many are looking to new/old, better ways of
farming.

The morning kicks off with a tour of Jonai Farms, where local farming legends
Tammi and Stuart Jonas will guide visitors through their diverse, small-scale,
agroecological farming system, and the on-farm boning room and commercial
kitchen where they produce fresh cuts, smallgoods, charcuterie, and salumi.
Back at the beautiful Jonai event space the grandly named Belvedere punters
will be treated to a lilting line-up of folk, country and indie acts throughout the
afternoon. Local stars Freya Josephine Hollick (fresh off the back of recording a new
album with Buick 6 at Rancho De La Luna studios in California), Sean McMahon,
and Sal Kimber and the Rollin Wheel, will be hitting the stage with full bands on
show for big, deep tunes.

Youll be able to fill up on locally-produced eats and treats from some of Victorias
favourite food trucks, including hyperlocal Dannys Farm and ever-popular Lil Nom
Noms, and enjoy the likes of Captains Creek organic cider and wine and Holgate
beer from just down the road. In keeping with AFSAs mission of fair food, Farm Day
Out organisers are ensuring that all food is sourced ethically from farmers we know
and love. (You can also bring your own picnic lunch - no BYO alcohol).

Farm Day Out will also see the launch of AFSAs revolutionary new book Farming
Democracy: Radically transforming the food system from the ground up. The book
shares the stories of eight small-scale regenerative farmers from across Australia,
from veg growers and pastured livestock farmers to organic grain farmers. It delves
into just how they grow, process, and sell their food, and what it takes for them to
farm the way they do - giving practical, on-the-ground insight into what is happening
around the country to build a fairer food system, and opening the books to share
what it costs (and makes) them to grow food fairly.

All funds raised by the event will support AFSAs work in advocating for a fair,
nourishing, and ecologically-sound food system supporting mo...

Consumer groups say e-commerce trade deals cant protect consumers AFTINET

January 31, 2019: The Trans-Atlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD), a grand alliance of seventy-five US and EU consumer organisations, has issued a strong critical statement about the intention of 76 WTO member governments to negotiate binding rules for e-commerce that would not protect consumer rights.

A TACD background document noted that the majority of WTO member countries have not agreed to be involved in e-commerce negotiations. The statement argued that, since trade negotiations are secretive and do not comply with basic principles of democratic decision-making, far-reaching discussions around digital policies should not take place through trade agreements. The development of e-commerce has the potential to boost the competitiveness of the economy and improve consumer choice and welfare, but this is only possible if consumer trust and confidence are strengthened.

The statement made three recommendations to trade negotiators:

  • Ensure meaningful transparency and proactive engagement with legislators, stakeholders and citizens. Consumers must be able to monitor discussions, be proactively consulted and provide input;
  • Put consumers at the forefront. Provisions that ensure protections and rights for consumers could enhance consumer trust online, e.g. by ensuring product safety, proper consumer information, contractual rights information and redress options.
  • Recognize trade deals are not the appropriate fora to tackle every aspect of digital policy. Topics such as cyber security, internet of things, artificial intelligence, net neutrality or data protection are important, but this does not mean they should be addressed in the context of trade agreements especially when domestic legislation is rapidly evolving.

Sky Falls In Over Tamworth Amid Black Criminal Grubs And Keyboard Warriors New Matilda

Tamworth may be the self-proclaimed country music capital of the nation, but its also a town under siege from criminal gangs and roaming Aboriginal youth. If you believe some of the locals and news.com.au.

For those not in the know, Tamworth is situated in the New England region of northern NSW. By country town standards its quite large population 41,000 and its home to the annual Tamworth Country Music Festival, the largest of its kind in the country.

Like many towns, Tamworth also has a quite impressive history of racism, and not just towards Aboriginal people. In 2005 and 2006, the city made national headlines after the local council voted to refuse a request to house five Sudanese refugee families, because it felt they wouldnt fit in.

The furore included this timeless quote from then Mayor James Treloar: The community has expressed enormous concerns of mistrust against the Sudanese people, I think this is largely based on previous events like the Cronulla riots.

Fast forward a decade and a bit, and Tamworth is still struggling with issues of race, although the country town, like most in Australia, has settled back into the business of focussing mostly on Aboriginal people. Particularly kids.

The source of the latest community angst and the news.com.au story headlined Tamworth Crime: Rural Aussie Community Under Siege appears, in part, to be a recent post on the Oxley Police District Facebook page, in which Chief Inspector Jeff Budd (the officer in charge at Tamworth) describes youth criminals as grubs and Facebook users who criticise police for not doing enough as keyboard warriors whose behaviour is BS!.

Its possible Chief Inspector Budd didnt get the memo from police headquarters about professional communication. In any event, it proved popular with locals, who hailed the Chief as not falling prey to the PC crap that so many other officials spout.

Chief Inspector Budd also, possibly, didnt get the memo about political comment, because after one user writes, If they cant control their children who are repeat offenders can the parents not be liable? If not can this be made legislation? The Oxley Police District page responds, Gday Nic, No arguments from me we need leadership from our Governments.

Should I notify the Police Minister about his lack of leadership Chief Inspector Budd, or will you?

Either way, Chief Inspector Budd does report that there has, indeed, been a recent spike in juvenile related crime in the Tamworth region, although he doesnt assign it to one race. The community can do that all by themselves.

Gday People of Tamworth, currently we are battling with an increase of Juvenile linked crime in some parts of Tamworth, Chief Inspector Budd writes. We have made over 15 Juvenile arrests since just before Xmas. The offen...

A Mockumentary Too Close to the Bone Gumshoe News

by Dee McLachlan

About six years ago I did a spoof on reality shows. The genre is known the trade as a mockumentary. The title is ten terrorists.  Well, not exactly. I had to spell it as 10terrorists because the Internet is on the lookout for the word terrorist and would have blocked the item.

Ultimately, for commercial reasons, the name was changed to That Crazy Reality Show. I offer the trailer and an excerpt as a way to alleviate all the heavy articles we have been running.

Short Synopsis

A shady Los Angeles producer will do anything for a ratings bonanza, so decides to roll out So You Want To Be A Terrorist? the most extreme and controversial reality television show ever. Filming in secret on the harsh continent Down Under, his three Judges set about to find the amateur master-terrorist through a series of outrageous challenges and surprising eliminations using interrogations and even torture. Stealing from every popular reality show format, the Producer wants the action and explosions to be more real, even if this means contestants might get killed. But before it goes to air..its hacked! And they get more than they bargained for.

For your amusement.

From Asian to African Gangs: Who Will The Media Vilify Next? New Matilda

The media always has to have someone to hate, and Tina Kuek knows the feeling all too well.

My name is Tina and Im a 24-year-old African Australian woman.

I have lived in Australia for most of my life, but my features, my height and my skin mark me to the mainstream as African. Ironically, to most Africans I am South Sudanese and to most Sudanese I am Dinka.

Im proud of my heritage, but even I cant keep up with all these labels!

My family moved to Australia when I was nine-years-old. I went to primary school in Melbourne. At 21 I graduated with a masters from the Australian National University in Canberra, and now I work in the Victorian Public Service. I have always been proud to call Australia my home, although lately Ill admit I have started to question if I belong here; if I am wanted and if I am safe.

I, like most African Australians, have never committed a crime. Yet the mainstream media calls me a criminal. This is shocking. It is shocking for me and many people I know and love. It is difficult to articulate what its like to be thought of as bad and even dangerous for doing literally nothing.

It will come as no shock to New Matilda readers that much of the Australian media is convincing the wider Australian community to be afraid of black skin. How do they do this? When a crime is committed by someone with skin like mine it is a gang crime. When it is committed by someone else it is simply a crime or even just a fight, protest or wild party.

Of course, Africans are not the first to be vilified by the media. The Vietnamese and Lebanese were characterised as gang members when they came to Australia and Aboriginal Australians only ever seem to make the front page if there is criminal violence of some sort involved. The Italians had a rough trot when they arrived too. And Muslims, well need I explain any further?

This kind of irresponsible media reporting is obviously unfair, but it is also dangerous. In some instances, violence is quite literally incited.

For example, a recent episode of A Current Affair featured a man urging people to, band together and hurt any African youth. He was responding to an incident which took place outside of a restaurant in St Albans where teenage boys aged 14 to 17 fought with a group of men over a pack of cigarettes. Chairs were thrown and bats were swung. Obviously, there is no excuse for this kind of behaviour from the boys or, perhaps the men but one wonders what purpose it serves to describe these kids as African. Young men in general are overrepresented in crime, and I question if the altercation even needed to be reported given its relative insignificance. At least, maybe, report it for what it actually is, a group of teenagers stealing cigarettes.

The media must realise the crucial role it...

By Emma Albirici, January 29, 2019

From ABC News Australia

Maria Teresa Farcis legs start to shake as she reads aloud from the diary she kept that describes, in heartbreaking detail, the last moments of her 25-year-old daughters tortured life.

She died in my arms. My whole world collapsed. I knew she was sick, but I wasnt ready.

Her daughter, Maria Grazia, was born on the Italian island of Sardinia with part of her brain exposed and a spine so disfigured her mother has never allowed her photo to be published.

This was only one of many mysterious cases of deformity, cancer and environmental destruction that have come to be called the Quirra syndrome.

Eight Italian military officers all former commanders of the bombing range at Quirra in Sardinia have been hauled before the courts.

Its unprecedented to see Italian military brass held to account for what many Sardinians say is a scandalous coverup of a major public health disaster with international consequences.

Bombs and birth defects is there a link?

In the year baby Maria Grazia was born, one in four of the children born in the same town, on the edge of the Quirra firing range, also suffered disabilities.

Some mothers chose to abort rather than give birth to a deformed child.

In her first television interview, Maria Teresa told Foreign Correspondent of hearing bombs exploding at the Quirra firing range when she was pregnan...

The Real Villains In The Hakeem Al-Araibi Case New Matilda

The wrong person is rotting away in a Thai jail, writes Stuart Rees.

Bahraini soccer player Hakeem Al-Araibi has Australian residency, has lived here for four years but  has been held in a Thai prison for the last 60 days.

Arriving in Bangkok late last year with his wife for their Thai honeymoon, he was arrested apparently because a Red Alert Interpol warrant indicated he was wanted by Bahrain authorities in effect the royal family for allegedly vandalising a police station. Television footage shows Hakeem playing in a soccer match when damage to the police station was supposed to have occurred. Nevertheless, he was sentenced in absentia to 10-years in prison.

There are other reasons why Bahrain authorities want Hakeem extradited from Bangkok. Following the Arab spring uprisings, in 2011 he had participated in pro-democracy protests in Bahrain. When thousands were imprisoned and tortured, including Hakeem, he raised questions about human rights, in particular regarding the role played by Sheikh Salman bin Abrahim Al Khalifa, a member of the Bahrain royal family, president of the Asian Football Conference (AFC) and a vice President of the international football federation FIFA.

Sheikh Salman appears to have considered that Hakeems criticism of his human rights record had enabled the Swiss Italian Gianni Infantino to defeat him in the FIFA Presidency election.

In this deceitful, unethical, illegal saga, the people who should be in the dock are the operators who have put Hakeem in a Thai prison and kept him there. The perpetrators of injustice include the government of Bahrain, Thai military and courts, powerful football officials and representatives of the Australian Federal Police (AFP). Taken before a court of human decency, this is what a prosecutor would say.

 

Powerful Operators Stand Accused

Bahrains government is vicious. Reports from Human Rights Watch show that torture and forced disappearance are common, civilians are tried by military courts, the only independent newspaper has been shut down and the death penalty restored. Hakeem has good reason to fear being returned to Bahrain where hes certain hell be imprisoned and tortured again.

The next group in the dock are representatives of the Thai military government and officials in their courts. Thailand has a military government, is not a signatory to the UN Refugee Convention, and is used to giving orders and having them obeyed. Admitting to weakness or to wrong doing is not in military ideology and certainly not in their rule books. The language and values of human rights must be as confusing to their officers as it is to the Bahrain authorities.

These serious accusations demand a caveat. The prosecutors case should not be overstated. Even within an authoritarian culture, there are exceptions to the rule. Thailands Chief of Immigration Police...

US State Dept.Announces Foreign Ministers Meeting of the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

Planning.........

The coalition will absolutely, undoubtedly be attended by the Iraqi foreign minister. Iraq is NOT allied with Syria (no matter what disinfo Canthama @ Syper might claim about Iraq and Syria being allied- they aren't. Same claim disinfo Canthama made about the YPG/PKK being allied with SAA, when they were actually allied with the USrael coalition ethnically cleansing the areas the "took over" from their symbiots ISIS)

Canada will be in attendance, undoubtedly.
As will France. Germany. Britain. Israel (yes, Israel) The US, of course. Iraq. Saudi Arabia. UAE. Egypt. Australia. New Zealand. (off the top of my head that's all I can think of for the moment)

Ministers will also discuss important next steps in degrading ISISs global networks and affiliates outside Iraq and Syria.
These meetings are taking place at a key moment in our coordinated fight. The United States is determined to prevent a resurgence of ISIS in Syria and Iraq after the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Syria take...

Traditional Owners continue to resist Adanis invasion "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Wangan & Jagalingou People | Traditional Owners continue to resist Adanis invasion - MEDIA RELEASE Friday 25 January 2019 Traditional Owners continue to resist Adanis invasion Full Bench Federal Court Appeal against rent a crowd ILUA to proceed UN demands Australia explain why Adanis project has not been suspended over rights concerns Bankruptcy threat to W&J leader to be resisted nationally and internationally W&J Traditional Owner and lead spokesperson Adrian Burragubba THE Federal Court appeal against Adanis sham Indigenous Land Use Agreement will go ahead after the Traditional Owners secured financial backing. The security of costs for the hearing in May will now be covered by public interest litigation group the Grata Fund. The Grata Fund, whose patron is former federal court judge and corruption fighter Tony Fitzgerald AC QC, and whose board includes former Victorian judge Marcia Neave and human rights lawyer Jennifer Robinson, has stepped in to guarantee the bond for the five appellants. The W&J Council says the Traditional Owners and their community refuse to back down, and the Council will continue its campaign to defeat Adani and its political and industry barrackers. The Council is also grateful that the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (UN CERD) has stepped in to demand Australia consider suspending the Adani project over apparent Indigenous rights breaches. W&J Traditional Owner and lead spokesperson Adrian Burragubba said: Adani is attempting to invade, occupy and plunder our land, contravening our human rights and denying us our property, under the cover of a bogus land use agreement. Their rent-a-crowd ILUA is not supported by the legitimate W&J Traditional Owners from the Carmichael Belyando native title claim area. We have made sure our Federal Court appeal can proceed because we are determined to prove that Adani does not have our consent for its mine, and to ensure it is never allowed to destroy our country and our future. Our people have survived 231 years since the start of colonisation in this continent, and we can survive this onslaught from Adani. We are determined to defend our country from destruction, he said. The confirmation of the appeal comes as the UN CERD has intervened under its early warning and urgent action provisions to demand Australia answer concerns about breaches of the W&J Peoples internationally protected rights. The UN expressed concern over the Adani amendments to the Native Title Act in 2017, as well as alleged breaches of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, and the failure to obtain the genuine free, prior and informed consent of the relevant Traditional Owners. Ms Linda Bobongie, Chairperson of the W&J Council said: We have called on the UN CER...

U.S. Message to World With Huawei Case: Dont Trust China on 5G "IndyWatch Feed War"

Chinas largest technology company is a threat to everyones national security.

The scores of pages of U.S. indictments handed down Monday against Huawei Technologies Co. dont explicitly mention anything about 5G networks or Chinas spy agency.

Huawei (picture-alliance/dpa/M. Schiefelbein)

But they sent a clear message to world leaders weighing whether to use Huawei equipment for next-generation wireless networks connecting everything from phones to cars to supertankers: Chinas largest technology company is a threat to national security.

They arent just going after the notion that there is hard evidence of previous spying, said Graham Webster, a fellow at Washington-based research group New America who studies Chinas digital economy. They are trying to undermine trust in Huawei overall, saying that this company cannot be trusted in your infrastructure.

The case is a further sign that wider strategic tensions between the worlds two largest economies will persist even if they reach a deal to end a months-long trade war that is starting to hit global growth and company earnings. That may be harder now as Chinese President Xi Jinpings top economic aide visits Washington this week for talks to stave off more tariff increases.

U.S. Ramps Up Huawei Fight With Iran, Trade-Secret Charges

The indictments intensify the spotlight on Huawei, which has come to symbolize Chinas economic rise and challenge to the U.S.s status as the worlds top superpower. In particular, the decision to prosecute Meng Wanzhou daughter of billionaire Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei has riled Beijing and increased concerns around the globe of a new Cold War.

For Huawei, the indictments couldnt come at a worse time. Since Meng Huaweis chief financial officer was arrested in Canada on Dec. 1 after a U.S...
