... Uncle Coco says protesters are advocating for a truth commission to acknowledge the sovereignty of Australia's First Peoples.

"Once that's done, then you can start talking about reconciliation, but until that's done [reconciliation] is nothing more than another rolled out version of terra nullius," he said.

Upon hearing that a young man with a disability was among those originally scheduled to run the delayed section of the relay, two young protestors - Ruby Wharton and Dylan Voller - gifted the wheelchair-user with a hand-woven bracelet as a gesture of apology and appreciation. ...

5 reasons to join the 2018 Commonwealth Games protests [Welcome to Country - 4/4/18]:

 

... Enough is enough, if you can't see the reality right now, you must be blind.

The games organisers don't care about reconciliation.

All they care about is token representation to keep up the fake lies that everything is fine in Australia.

They definitely don't care about economic Indigenous empowerment.

The only empowerment we will achieve is the empowerment we demand.

Rights to self determination, rights to our waterways, our land, our children, our languages, our past and our future. ...

Perfecting trickery: The Referendum Council [Sovereign Union - 30/5/17]:

 

... For some of the elected delegates it was clear that when they were talking about issues that were not supportive of the Referendum Council's ambitions, Noel Pearson and/or Pat Anderson were constantly leaving the meeting to have counsel with Mark Leibler, the Zionist Co-chair of the Referendum Council.

It became clear that he is the puppet-master, who was clearly steering this ship as he sat outside of the meeting in a private conference area inside the Sails Hotel of the Yulara Ayers Rock Resort.

One does not have to take a second guess that he was privileged to live-streaming with other lawyers by his side.

His controlling advice was apparent.

A constitutional referendum was the only objective - that you must maintain the appearance of consent to the theme of constitutional reform, knowing that the people did not want just 'Recognition' and/or a minimalist approach, neither did they want to be assimilated into the colonial constitution of the occupying power. ...

Manifestations of moral panics in the sentencing of Palm Islander Lex Wotton, Anthony Thalia [UTS - May 2009]:

 

... The bravery awards were the climax of the narrative that portrayed the police on Palm Island as morally righteous.

The courts', media’s and State Government's valorisation of the police were key parts of this narrative.

The courts that sentenced the 'rioters' emphasised the sacrifices of the police officers who were sent to quell the 'riot'.

The Queensland Police Minister, Judy Spence (2008), claimed the police officers on Palm Island 'really exercised enormous restraint and commonsense and sound judgment [sic] in dealing with that riot'.

I think it was extraordinary that given their frame of mine [sic] and fear at the time, that none of them chose to use their weapons, which they had at their disposal. … I think our police do a marvellous job on a daily basis … I mean it’s a tough situation and we’re asking our police to do this job on our behalf, and I think people lose sight of the fact that they are there every day, and for the most part they’re doing a great job (Ibid). ...

Solitary confinement for Haneef [Sydney Morning Herald - 18/7/2007]:

 

... Queensland Police and Corrective Services Minister Judy Spence today said the conditions of his detention included no contact with other inmates, meaning Haneef would be alone in a cell for all but one hour a day, when he is allowed to exercise.

Haneef would also face a different regime to that of other prisoners, she said.

"A terrorist prisoner is required to be held apart from the mainstream prison population, so he will be held in a segregated environment, when he moves around the prison he will be accompanied by two prison officers," she told reporters in Brisbane today.

"Anyone who is charged under terrorist legislation is obviously seen as a greater threat to the good order of our society than other type of prisoners."

...

Ms Spence defended the high security around Haneef's transfer in an armoured police van today.

"You have to appreciate he is being treated as a terrorist, that's the charges against him at this point in time,,so it is appropriate that when he is moved from one place to another that he is heavily guarded," she said.

"Don't be so surprised about the heavy security surrounding this particular person, because it is a normal way of moving high profile and high security prisoners around the state."

Martin Luther King Jr [Letter from a Birmingham Jail - 16 April 1963]:

 

... I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom;  who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." ...
