Stolen wages of First Nations people, and White Supremacy

Monday, 1 April 2019 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Marisa interviewed Lara Watson, Indigenous, officer for .Actu, and First Nations woman They discussed the Racist, punnitive  Could Programme (a form of work for the dole and welfare), introduced in 2015    by Nigel Scullion, Coalition Minister for Aboriginal Affairs. The interview focused on  COULD workers  being prisoners in their own land, as they are given unfair work practices, under the Social security Act and not fair trade. Historical context was also discussed, with the walk off of First Nations people in 1966 for stolen wages, during the Vincint Lingarie era.
Marisa then interviewed Praba activist for Trotsky Platform. The interview tackled the fundamental question: How can we unite against Facism. The Christchurch shootings were used as an example, to highlight white Supremacy. The discussion then moved on to cover how Governments use facism to justify invasions and policies, in a  climate of fear and economic rationalism, thus encouraging Facism, to rear its ugly head.
