New Sites and Pages

We’d like to introduce two new websites from the Aussie National-Anarchist network…

The Western Australian National-Anarchist (WANA) collective now has a website to share news on their activities and information on local issues from a National-Anarchist perspective. They are currently organising social meet ups and various other activist projects, so if you live out west, give them a yell and they’ll be sure to get you involved.

The much awaited National-Anarchist Women site is now up and running! This website is run entirely by the women in our network, who are all working hard to produce interesting and relevant information and valuable resources for women interested in sustainable living, healthy alternatives and tribalism. National-Anarchism is a political movement that values men and women equally as essential providers and contributors to a sustainable and autonomous society, if you’re a woman looking for a real social alternative – get in contact!

We’ve also created a new Links page, with a growing collection of websites relevant to National-Anarchists and New Right supporters. Have a look! The website will be undergoing continuing updates in recent weeks, all with the aim of providing the news and resources relevant to our activists and supporters! Thank you for your continuous support

Geelong Fighting Fluoridation

fluoridebanner

Fluoride is a POISON!

As little as three teaspoons of fluoride is a lethal dosage. Fluoridation has been attributed to severe skeletal deformations, mental retardation, dental fluorosis among other severe health problems. Fluoride is ranked just below arsenic and just above lead in a scale of most harmful toxins. Fluoridation does not just mean the adding of fluoride to our water supply, it comes with a compound of other chemicals – including traces of mercury, lead and arsenic! Fluoride is INDUSTRIAL WASTE and the people of Geelong do not need this in our water!

Tonight, hundreds of people showed up to a campaign launch by the Barwon Association for Freedom from Fluoridation (BAFF) to issue a mandate to Parliament demanding a complete halt to the fluoridation of the Greater Geelong region. As supporters of the anti-fluoridation campaign, supporters of the communities right to choose and as potential victims of fluoridation; local National-Anarchists attended the meeting and look forward to being involved in the ongoing campaign.

Though the Geelong National-Anarchists are not scientists and we’ll leave the arguing of the health effects of fluoridation to the experts; we will demand our FREEDOM TO CHOOSE! We demand the freedom to decide what chemicals go in to our bodies. We deserve to have access to clean water, free from potentially harmful chemicals. We do not need government or anybody else trying to decide what we need to remain healthy, we can medicate ourselves!

The people of Geelong deserve to be heard and to be consulted on what happens in the Greater Geelong region. There has never been a call from the community for fluoridation but there has always been a large body voicing their opposition! Despite MPs such as Bronwyn Pike saying Geelong will not be fluoridated unless Geelong wants to be fluoridated, the lies have once again prevailed and State government intends on legislating against the will of the people. Such lies are not new and those involved in this campaign that may be new to political activism will soon learn that Parliament, the Judiciary and all “public servants” do not have the interests of the community at heart!

The Geelong National-Anarchists will be involved in this campaign and we encourage all of our readers, supporters and opponents to do the same. This is not about politics but about health and freedom in our society!

Federal Police Raid Steve Irwin

SteveIrwinShip

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society ship, Steve Irwin, was raided by Australian Federal Police officers last night. The ship had docked in Hobart at about 5:30pm when AFP officers brandishing a search warrant boarded, thoroughly searching crew members and the ship. Among items confiscated was the ships log and video tapes exposing Japanese whalers slaughtering whales in the Southern Ocean.

Crew members have described the slaughter by whalers as incredibly distressing as the whalers became more brazen. The crew has reported a whale was slaughtered in full view of the Steve Irwin.

The frustration and desperation of the whalers has not only made them more willing to kill whales in front of the Sea Shepherd but more violent towards the activists. The Japanese whalers have thrown scrap metal at activists, and employed water cannons and fired military-grade sonic weapons in an effort to stop the activists from protecting whales.

The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society remains the only entity that directly confronts the illegal practice of slaughtering whales in a sanctuary. Both the United Nations and the Australian Federal Court have made the commercial slaughter of whales illegal and forbidden whaling in the Southern Ocean whale sanctuary. Despite these laws, Japanese whalers continue to slaughter thousands of whales each year and the Australian government continues to do nothing!

The Australian government has used the image of Steve Irwin and the environmental spirit of Australians to promote the country on the world stage. Now that the AFP have raided the ship named in honour of Steve Irwin, can the hypocrisy of the Rudd government be hidden any longer? The majority of Australians oppose the whaling in our waters and the continued activism of the 100% volunteer based Sea Shepherd is example of what Australians will do to support those that protect whales from extinction.

What is to come of the police raid on the Sea Shepherd ship? The log book is a record of all the movements the Steve Irwin made on its operation and the video is a damning record of the violent and illegal activities of the Japanese whaling fleet. Captain Paul Watson has made the statement that he is unaware of whether the raid was made in response to complaints by either the Japanese whaling companies (controlled by organised crime groups in Japan) or the Australian government. It should be a worry for all Australians that the Federal Government puts trade relations with Japan before the values of the population and the protection of heavily endangered whale populations.

What can be done to support the Sea Shepherd and tell the government we oppose their support for criminals? The Australian National-Anarchists support the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society with donations and letters will continue to be written to government officials including Environment Minister, the dishonourable Peter Garrett demanding the government serve the interests of Australians and protect whales in our waters.

We must take a stand to protect our marine life from becoming another subject of history. We cannot wait for the Japanese government to control its whaling companies, we cannot expect government to enforce its own laws. The Sea Shepherd is the only entity preventing the extinction of whales and it is the duty of everyone to support them in their time of need.

Australian Bushfire Tragedy

Destroyed

Australian National-Anarchists have watched in horror as massive fires have devastated the breadth of Victoria over the past week. Abnormally high temperatures in one of our driest drought periods ever, along with changing wind conditions has paved the way for bushfires to spread right across Victoria. Some towns have been totally destroyed, including many historical landmarks totally lost to history. The official death toll at time of writing stands at 173 but is predicted to rise above 200 as searches of fire ravaged towns continue. Many people have been hospitalised with horrific injuries, many more left homeless and missing family members.

Tragedy and devastation like this hasn’t been seen by Australians in a long time, very few have had such events strike so close to home. Some National-Anarchists have friends and family living in the fire regions, some even know people who have lost everything. There is nobody in Victoria that hasn’t been touched somehow by this tragedy and everybody should feel as sense of loss and empathy for those that lost those close to them.

We should honour those volunteers in the Red Cross, CFA, SES and the others that have dedicated their time and even risked their lives to help people and to protect their communities. A community isn’t built on economy or citizenship but on the people that live and participate in them. Those brave individuals that put their lives on the line are the sort every National-Anarchist and every person should aspire to be. It is through volunteering, putting your hand up and doing your duty that things happen in this world – too many people sit back and wait for somebody else or even government to do what needs to be done.

National-Anarchists put a high priority on being involved in the community and taking part in community services and activities. Every National-Anarchist should be finding something they can do to contribute to their local community. Giving blood at the Red Cross is easy and not enough is given by people. We have National-Anarchists involved in volunteer fire brigades, a few of those have been on the frontline fighting the fires. The training, mateship and responsibility of being a volunteer makes it worthwhile and fulfilling – you will feel as if you really achieved something!

In light of the massive devastation we have seen in the towns through the fire regions, we need to remind governments and anybody else who doubts the facts – Nature is the boss!!

Australia has always been a sunburnt country, the indigenous people knew this well. If we want to live in rural areas (definitely better than the cities), we need to be prepared and live sustainably so the next time fire comes the tragic loss of life will be minimal. Rural houses may need a fire-proof, underground refuge to protect life and property when the fires head for homes. Planned and sustainable burn offs may be another way to minimise bushfire disasters. This is a role for the communities living in these regions to make, Nature will strike and all we can do is prepare for the worst.

Volunteer

I encourage National-Anarchists and our readers to get out there and give blood, the Red Cross will be needing more and more donations in the coming months as supplies are drained. If you’re not already, get involved in some sort of volunteer service – you will meet great people, learn new skills and be providing a service to your community.

May we all work together to overcome this tragedy and work towards a better tomorrow!
