Mintabie Launches Federal Court Legal Action

#Mintabie #Eviction #Discrimination

The town of Mintabie has taken the South Australian Government to Federal Court. They are claiming that the APY Act is in breach of the Anti-Discrimination Act. Does excluding people based on their race seem fair to you? Why is ethnic exclusion good for one group and not another?

It appears smashing eggs onto people’s heads is becoming a popular form of protest because Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been hit on the head with an egg at the Country Women’s Association. Why do they keep letting these people go?

Steve Dickson Resigns from One Nation

#AusPol #Election2019 #OneNation

Steve Dickson resigned from One Nation today because of secret footage obtained by Al Jazeera via entrapment.
