Diet Aftertaste



You're everything you want to be
Accomplished, gracious and great company
It makes perfect sense, you're never hated
But then, appearances are overrated

You speak the language everyone knows
Take over when the conversation slows
Another self-made luminary or
Maybe just the fucking tooth fairy

I'd send that brain you ration
To feed the smallest starving nation
But diet aftertaste is rude
And I can't digest a single word!

The Black Bastards Are Coming - Gordon Syron
The Flowering

When the white man took his bloodied boot
From the neck of the buggered Black
Did you expect some gratitude
His smile 'Good on you Jack?'
When your psalmist sang
Of a suffering Christ
While you practices genocide
Did you expect his hate would fade
Out of sight with the ebbing tide?
In another time, another age
If fate had reversed the play
And a hard black boot pressed on your white throat
When released -- what would you say
Friends and pals forever together in a new fair dawn?
Or meet like you and I shall meet
With flames and daggers drawn.

"It was the Law of the Sea, they said.
Civilization ends at the waterline.
Beyond that, we all enter the food chain, and not always right at the top."

"He described how, as a boy of 14, his dad had been down the mining pit, his uncle had been down the pit, his brother had been down the pit, and of course he would go down the pit."
~ Barbara Castle

"The miners lost because they had only the constitution. The other side had bayonets. In the end, bayonets always win."
~ Mother Jones 

"In that sense, I became politicized because the people in the coal mining villages who were involved in the struggle knew why they were there. But they couldn't understand why some pop star from London would want to be there."
~ Billy Bragg

STAND UP AND RESIST


"The voice of the victim stays silent, unnoticed in order to turn over a profit.
The power structure doesn't just change from a wish.
It takes action - persistence.
So how many more times will I hear "it's not my fight"?
Stand up & resist
Before we start to open up our eyes?
Stand up & resist
We must realize that it's one fucking struggle - it's one fucking fight.
Everything is connected - one world, one struggle, one power, one people.
How many more times will we force feed generations the lies?
Stand up & resist
Lies of freedom while teaching them the ways of oppression
Stand up and resist
Why do we force feed generations lies of freedom, while teaching them the ways of oppression?
That they have a voice, but they shouldn't raise it
That they have a choice, but don't know how to make it
That they have freedom but shouldn't question what that means
That they are merely another cog, in the machine."

Morning





“From the same wilderness, in the same night, 
always my tired eyes waken to the silver star, 
always, although the Kings of life, 
the three magi, the heart, the soul, the mind, are not moved. 
When shall we go, beyond the shores and the mountains, 
to acclaim the birth of the new work, the new wisdom, 
the flight of tyrants and demons, the end of superstition, 
to adore – the first worshippers! – Christmas on earth!”
~ Arthur Rimbaud



“what will prove to be our big mistake?
short sighted arrogance all for what sake?
our families to ashes, our ambition to dust
our progeny in silence thinking "what about us?"

but don't forget the dance of neglect
the march for empowering prosperity
the pain from loss and want for mere lucidity
just maternal residue, and I was there too
and maybe so were you."

~ Bad Religion

Offshore processing mythbuster



February 2011

www.asrc.org.au




MYTH: Nauru is a signatory to the Refugee Convention now, so we can send asylum seekers there.
FACT: The Solicitor General has confirmed that neither Nauru or Papua New Guinea satisfy the High Court’s requirement of having adequate protections in place for asylum seekers. They would need to amend their domestic laws to guarantee asylum seekers’ safety. Alternatively Australia would need to amend our own laws to override the High Court’s decision.9


MYTH: Offshore processing is more cost effective
FACT: Offshore processing is even more expensive than detention on the mainland because of the increased cost of delivering services to remote locations. The Pacific Solution, which saw asylum seekers detained on Manus Island and Nauru, cost more than 1 billion dollars over five years, or $500 000 per person.10 The Christmas Island detention centre will cost almost 1 billion dollars between 2009 and 2014.11


MYTH: Australia needs to protect our borders from asylum seekers
FACT No boat arrival who may have been a potential threat to national security has ever gained entry into Australia. Boat arrivals are subject to the most rigorous security checks of all arrivals into Australia.
FACT: Offshore processing and mandatory detention only apply to boat arrivals, whilst the vast majority of asylum seekers arrive by plane with a valid visa, applying for asylum at a later date while living in the community. None have ever posed a threat to Australia’s national security and many are determined legitimate refugees and granted protection visas.


MYTH: ‘Stopping the boats’ is more humane than letting asylum seekers risk their lives on potentially dangerous journeys.
FACT: Under Operation Relex boats travelling from Indonesia were intercepted before they reached Australian waters. The Australian Navy was ordered to deter and deny entry but generally did not assist people on these boats that were placed in danger. 12. Many drowned as a result, including 353 men women and children in the widely reported SIEVX incident.13.


MYTH: Strong offshore processing policy reduces people smuggling

FACT: The Australian government has in fact contributed to the creation of people smuggling by restricting the legal avenues for asylum seekers to find protection in Australia. As the world’s leading authority on international refugee law, Professor James Hathaway explains:
The whole people-smuggling problem is a false issue. We created the market for human smuggling. If
asylum seekers could lawfully come to Australia and make a refugee claim without the need of
sneaking in by boat, they would do it. But we make it illegal and create the market that smugglers

thrive on.14

Audry is Secretary of No-State for the Antipodean Martian-Expatriate Collective.

"The Australian self-image of a tolerant, multicultural success story leaves little room for a counter-discourse of a more complex reality, grounded in a historical, de facto apartheid, and there is a resurgence of bipartisan paternalism. This is evident in the reimposition of the Northern Territory “emergency response” for a further 10 years, under the Orwellian “Stronger Futures” label."

"The literature provides solid evidence that racism is a noteworthy determinant and driver of inequities in health ... Racism is not only an everyday occurrence for many Indigenous Australians, but also one that gets under the skin, and “makes us sick”."

"The cat is nature's Beauty."

  ~ French Proverb

June 02, 2012




As anarchist values and practices become increasingly central to protest movements, the authorities are anxious to incapacitate and delegitimize anarchists. Yet in this context, it’s still inconvenient to admit to targeting people for anarchism alone—that could spread the wrong narrative, rallying outrage against transparently political persecution. Likewise, they dare not initiate repression without a narrative portraying the targets as alien to the rest of the movement, even if that repression is calculated to destroy the movement itself.

Fortunately for the FBI, a few advocates of “nonviolence” within the Occupy movement were happy to provide this narrative, disavowing everyone who didn’t affirm their narrow tactical framework. Journalists like Chris Hedges took this further by framing the “black bloc” as a kind of people rather than a tactic—despite even the Chicago Sun-Times comprehending the distinction. Hedges led the charge to consign those who actively defended themselves against state repression to this fabricated political category—in effect, designating them legitimate targets. It is no coincidence that entrapment cases followed soon after.

Litany Against Fear


I must not fear

Fear is the mind-killer.

Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.

I will face my fear.

I will permit it to pass

Over me and through me.


And when it has gone past

I will turn the inner eye

To see its path.

Where the fear has gone


There will be nothing.

Only I will remain....

"In accordance to the principles of Doublethink, it does not matter if the war is not real, or when it is, that victory is not possible. The war is not meant to be won. It is meant to be continuous. The essential act of modern warfare is the destruction of the produce of human labor. A hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. In principle, the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects."
