“I’m a peace activist with no history of any kind of violence or inciting violence or anything like that, which I’ve been accused of in the media, and I’m just completely baffled by this.
I mean, I’ve given talks about, you know, the US anti-war movement, and I’ve given talks about Halliburton, and I’ve given talks about non-violent, you know, social change. You know, peaceful ways of doing this like King and Ghandi, but I’ve never, you know, done anything which they’re trying to allude to.”
I never protested the subtle changes in Australian law since 9/11, but now shades of section 29 of the South African apartheid regime come to my mind. I’m sorry Scott, that Australia is not the bastion of freedom that it was. I am now motivated to protest the danger in plans for even more draconian anti-terrorism laws.
