    Personal reflections on the Christmas Island tragedy

    It is curious and sad that in weeks when our media are celebrating WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, we can accept so easily a government-managed story, whose public accountability obligation stares us in the face. Perhaps because editors know that our complacent society really does not want to go there.

    Kevin Rudd and 'harmless' WikiLeaks

    • Tony Kevin

    Rudd's showing off to Hilary Clinton reveals Australian insecurity and diplomatic immaturity, and little of what he said would shock the Chinese. WikiLeaks' cable trawl can do no great harm and may in the long run do some good.

    The living are burdened with responsibility for those who have died. New Zealand can take strength from Cambodia, a country to whom tragedy is no stranger, reaching out in communion as each of them comes to terms with the torment of loss and bereavement.

    May I tell you about one refugee whom I met during the 20 years I lived and worked JRS? The story has no happy outcome, indeed far from it. But it may help to communicate some of the feelings that inspire many who accompany the refugees.

    Hedonists miss the point of travel

    'The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page,' said St Augustine. Drunk, libidinous and scantily-clad tourists unleashed on idyllic locales were certainly not what Augustine had in mind when he spoke so eloquently of the virtue of travel.

    A modern approach to refugee resettlement

    • Kerry Murphy
    • 20 August 2010
    5 Comments

    According to the Coalition, 'bad refugees' who come on boats take places that could otherwise go to 'good refugees' who wait patiently in camps. Labelling refugees as 'good' or 'bad' according to how they arrive in Australia reflects an insular opinion that does not reflect what is happening worldwide.

    The book was banned after parents complained about its anti-authoritarian attitude: 'Wanja [the dog] loved to chase the [police] van ... to bark at the van ... to bite at the wheel. The police van would drive away.' Like Jewish humour, Aboriginal humour is a response to a history of oppression.

    Julia Gillard appears to be in no mood to countenance the type of conviction politics that would be required to ratify the ban of cluster bombs. This is a far cry from the glory days of Kevin07 when Rudd said he would ratify Kyoto, then did exactly that.

    Memories of refugees

    • Andrew Hamilton

    I remember the 250,000 Cambodians in Site Two by the Thai border, and among them Chea, the sister of a friend, who died when the camp was shelled. I remember the many who spent years in Australian detention centres, and the sadness of watching as the light went out of the eyes of those detained for more than six months.
