    I would recommend strongly to read John Pliger’s article. It shoul give us lots and lots to think about. As Australians we may be especially interested in the concluding words of Pilger’s article:

    “In Australia, there is a kind of mortuary politics, in which tedious parliamentary games are played out in the media while refugees and Indigenous people are persecuted and inequality grows, along with the danger of war. The government of Malcolm Turnbull has just announced a so-called defense budget of $195 billion that is a drive to war. There was no debate. Silence.

    What has happened to the great tradition of popular direct action, unfettered from parties? Where is the courage, imagination and commitment required to begin the long journey to a better, just and peaceful world? Where are the dissidents in art, film, the theatre, and literature?

    Where are those who will shatter the silence? Or do we wait until the first nuclear missile is fired?
