Video: ‘Utopia’ by John Pilger (2013)

Ashamed to be Australian…

Wow, I heard about this video, but nothing compares to seeing and watching Australia’s sordid History and in-humane treatment of the first people. Given that the founding father Barton and recently Lang Hancock actively advocate for sterilisation of the blacks and half-breeds are both confronting and appalling. Denial of basic facilities like electricity, plumbing, good running water, adequate schooling, adequate health services, adequate shelter, transportation – even though these people are tax-paying persons, therefore they are required to have adequate facilities – special mention that this is happening still in 2019, informs thinking people how poor the rights of indigenous peoples are, and how in-humane the Government of Australia is, with regard to first nation people living on their traditional lands. NOTE: Trachoma and other preventable diseases are widespread with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, despite Australia being economically viable country, and these diseases can be prevented. Politicians are not doing enough – end of story.
