If you have not already heard about these workers please take the time to follow the link and give them your support. They appear to have been shamefully treated.

One of the artistes linked on the Artistes page above is Penelope Swales. She is also a Facebook friend and posted the following link to an excellent article by The Australian

Penelope commented that few know or wish to face the reality of the law applying to the original colonisers of Australia, or the effect of that ignorance. 

So as Australia Day rapidly approaches perhaps alternative names of "Invasion Day" and "Amnesia Day" should be considered.
Penelope was also busy notifying us of an interesting article on the Hazaras, refugees from Afghanistan & Pakistan

Lastly I draw your attention to the following link which simply leaves me too angry to comment on as it identifies the hypocrisy of Australian law and belief.
