Sydney Australia First Pickets Refugee Advocate Anglican Church (July 10)
On Sunday, July 6, members of Australia First picketed the St. Philip's Anglican Church in Caringbah.
The reason? The support given by the church to refugee settlement in the Sutherland Shire.
We reproduce (below) the text of the leaflet that was distributed to church goers.
We expect publicity in coming days.
When Churches sponsor refugees, they enter politics and neglect their flocks …..
What about Australian pensioners, unemployed, homeless people?
Why would Caringbah's St. Philips Anglican Church not only sponsor Sudanese refugees to be settled in Australia, but also spend resources upon them to maintain them here??
This isn't Christianity, nor is it common sense.
Some Caringbah Anglicans would 'help' people who are Moslems or animists and who care nothing for Christianity anyway.
Does the church take any responsibility for the Sudanese crime wave in Australia? Probably not.
Church community resources could be directed to help pensioners, unemployed and homeless Australian people. But this is ignored.
The church's stand is really called liberalism and globalism. It is a psychological disease. This disease demands of its victims that they give away their time, resources and assets to find a salvation in an orgy of self abasement.
No!' This is the politics of those who want Australia opened up to massive settlement and they usually play some sort of false moral game with Christians and the weak-minded.
Australia First Party says that these refugees belong back in their own
Australia First party says that churches must stay out of politics or lose the respect of countless Christians, including some who have supported this protest!
It is time some people in the churches stand up.
If you are a Christian who doubts the church's line, read The Camp Of The Saints, the classic 1972 novel, that predicted the unarmed invasions of European societies by masses of border-busting Third World poor. There is no salvation in treason.
On-Going Opposition At Kurnell Against The Desalination Plant Is Correct (June 15)
The desalination plant wins no favours at Kurnell. In line with residents' opinion, so forcefully drawn out at a mass meeting in May, Australia First demands the immediate abandonment of the project and urgent action to preserve the environment and character of Kurnell. Australia First demands
that the Kurnell desalination equipment be sold off or mothballed.
It is ironic that the desalination plant, which is obviously linked to the mad plan to explode Sydney's population to six millions by 2040, should be built at the very birth place of European Australia. Given the new immigration will be drawn from the 'developing world', it signals an attack upon the very meaning of the word 'Australia'. It is significant too that the technologies employed belong to international mega comapnies, all good mates of Labor government. In other words, the project is not about Sydney's water needs right now, but is a considered manipulative response to needs of the overpopulated Sydney of thirty years hence.
In this election, Australia First stands unhestiatingly - with the people of Kurnell village!
No To Development At The Kirrawee Brick Pit (June 14)
The Kirrawee residents and most of the business community are united against the development proposal for the Kirrawee Brick Pit site in Kirrawee. It is generally felt that the development, which would include a supermarket, would overwhelm much of local business and significantly alter the character of the area. Interestingly, another mega shopping centre is on the proposal list for Sutherland. More than ever, these development applications support the idea that the Sutherland Shire is to be the subject of a massive migrant influx. Economic development (sic) is the basis for population expansion.
The control over the Kirrawee Brick Pit site ultimately rests with the State Government, which can and almost certainly will, try to manipulate planning laws to override any decision made by the Council. Yet, in any case, the Council cannot be trusted either.
Published figures reveal that in the last (2004) Councils' poll, some $300,000 was donated by developers to candidates in the Shire.
State Government Can Seize Your Private Property And Give It To Developers - And It's All 'Legal' (June 12)
It may soon become law in New South Wales (as it already is in other States) that the government can seize your property at a "price" and re-sell it to developers either for a profit, or if it is deemed in the "public interest" - at a loss.
While the potential for corruption is enormous, the invasion of personal rights is remarkable. The proposal came from Labor stalwarts, something unsurprising given the clear nexus between that party and property developers. Yet it is the assault upon the citizen which is truly dangerous. Until now, the law has held that some land could be resumed where the public interest was clear (say for defence purposes or for a railway, or some other public construction of obvious importance). However, the new law would basically define the public interest as that of the developer. In other words, a shoddy supermarket, or a block of expensive units, could have more of a claim on the public interest than the clear public interest of having people living their lives in their own homes.
This cannot be allowed to pass. The Australian democratic revolution which created a country where all persons had the potential to own their own home, was a great achievement. Much of the original 'settlement' of things at the time of Federation has been overturned - immigration restriction, protected industry, welfare entitlement and so forth has been overturned by the state power. Now it seeks to take over private property and hand it over to corporate property. A new democratic revolution is needed!
Senator And Journalist Tout Rise Of 'Far Right' / 'Racist' Party Over Contract Labour And Immigration Issues. Jim Saleam (May 22)
Senator-elect Doug Cameron was reported in the Sydney Morning Herald on May 20, warning that the waves of contract-labour about to descend upon Australia, might spur the growth of a "far right" party - or even "resuscitate One Nation". His comment was followed by Piers Ackerman in the Daily Telegraph (May 22), who stated that high immigration would fuel a new party of opposition.
All true. It is the view of Australia First that these facts have been known for a long time inside the major parties and within state agencies such as the assorted multicultural councils, anti discrimination bodies (ie those state bodies that discriminate against Australians) and security structures (ie. intelligence and surveillance forces that serve the Establishment by spying upon patriotic people and by working to disrupt their organisations). It seems that much media vitriol has been directed against patriotic people to mislead the public. Usually the media will trot out stuff about "extremists", "racists" and so forth.
However, as circumstances unfold, people are drawn into resistance. To defend their jobs and their families, they will not be deterred by some hack writer calling out "racist" in a tabloid smear sheet!
The contract labour danger has been warned about publicly by Australia First for six years. The party has campaigned in Young, Kilcoy, Griffith and other cities. This new attack upon Australia labour will be massive in scope and diabolical in inspiration. It will indeed grow resistance. What is needed is a party of rational radicalism to organize and mobilize workers in defence of their jobs and families. Australia First aims to become such a party.
Sunday Telegraph Reports Western Suburbs Refugee Leaflet Story (May 18)
The Sydney Sunday Telegraph has reported the distribution of 'anti African refugees' leaflets in Western Sydney. These leaflets were purportedly issued by Australia First. Whatever their content, the party has no connection to the leaflet.
Much information has emerged showing why someone might try to misrepresent the party's views on refugees, by vulgarising it to crude attacks. The truth is bad enough without misrepresentation.
Blacktown Council declared Blacktown a Refugee Welcome Zone on Harmony Day in March 2006. In signing this declaration of the Refugee Council of Australia, councils commit to providing practical support for refugees.
Some figures show (for example) more than 360 refugees have settled in the Penrith area since 2002, 174 of them from Sudan, according to the Department of Immigration and Citizenship. One quarter of the 1526 newly arrived migrants who settled in the Blacktown area between 2001 and 2006 were from Africa. The Penrith Refugee Coalition has pushed for Penrith to become a Refugee Welcome Zone for two years.
This group is made up of representatives from Mission Australia, Penrith Women’s Health Centre, Angels of Mercy, Anglicare, TAFE and Nepean Migrant Access in St Marys.
The following councils proclaim their cities and shires to be Refugee Welcome Zones.
Brimbank City Council ;Casey City Council; Darebin City Council; Greater Dandenong City Council; Hume City Council;
Maribyrnong City Council; Melbourne City Council; Monash City Council; Moonee Valley City Council; Moreland City Council;

How much money has been spent by councils in the useless exercise of providing handouts to refugees?
NationalizeThe Freeways! Kill The Fines! by John Hogan (May 9).
Working families can't afford the Sydney tollways. Nor can small businesses. No can owner-driver truckies. In Western Sydney, people drive longer distances and invariably end up on the freeways. These privatised monstrosities are adding massive bills to stretched personal and business budgets. However, on top of the heavy tolls comes the system of organized larceny - the fines.
It is so easy to get a fine. One need not to have been intentional at it. One need not be a bad driver. But the system of everywhere-present speed and other cameras is milking the public of hundreds of millions. Council rangers are all over, just waiting for you to miss that meter by a minute or two while you waited in a bank queue or shopping line. It all must stop.
Let's look at the rorts overall. The sale to private corporations of the public right to drive freely about a large city like Sydney, was itself a breach of trust. If new roads were necessary, payment from a levy upon vehicle registrations, was the best course. The asset, once constructed, incurred no additional 'profit' cost which the private company demands. Indeed, tolls should not have been imposed at all. No time (or fuel) need be expended paying tolls either at toll gates or via e-tag systems. No wages need ever have been paid and no other costs incurred, in paying toll takers or the bureaucrats who must staff the offices which issue the 'tags'.
Simplicity was always best. However for our governments, it's all about serving its masters in the money world.
So, are fines the government's way of raising the income dollars they forgo when they sell off a public right? Whatever the case, the issuing of fines has now become taxation on a massive scale. From city council "rangers", through to cameras, it's oppressive. If you can't pay and try court, it's nearly hopeless. Extra costs acrue. If you don't pay and ignore it all, the Roads And Traffic Authority will cancel your driving license or vehicle registration. More costs. Then the baillif comes to seize some goods from your home. The last resort (because what is really wanted by the State Debt Recovery Office is the money) is a community service order or a few days in gaol.
All this wastage of public time and resources, for what:? Of course, many can pay, and do pay. And that's what it is all about. And the system is there to intimidate you to ensure you do.
So, what does Australia First say in this campaign? Australia First wants the roads returned to public ownership and the tolls abolished. Next we want restrictions placed on cameras. When a motorist breaks the rules, the matter should be looked at and a courtesy notice sent. If within a reasonable period, the 'offender' does a similar thing, then, okay, let there be a fine. As for the notorious 'brown bombers' (rangers) employed by the councils to raise funds, same logic. Let the numbers of these rangers be cut back, thereby saving money for Council. Courtesy letters to rules' breakers before fines.
Australia First is all about making things better for ordinary people. It is time for a revolt against freeways and fines. Our ancestors at Eureka Stockade burned their gold mining licenses. Is it time for a mass rally to burn those fines and to institute civil resistance?
Electricity Scandal: A Power Sell Off To Chinese Imperialism. The ALP: A Party Of Traitors (May 7)
The likely sale of New South Wales's electricity supply to the Chinese corporation, the China Huaneng Group , showed exactly what is really going on with the latest round of "privatisation". It is the imperialist takeover of an Australian asset by a company operating for an emergent superpower. Big language. Difficult language. Yes. Yet, this is the truth. And not just that.. The TruEnergy corporation, run by the Hong Kong Chinese billionaire, Li Kang Shing, is already building a power station in Wollongong and may bid for some of the assets. The Shenhua group, a coal mining company is interested in securing New South Wales coal fields - and uranium mines. It is a massive carve up of the public wealth of New South Wales.
The Australian Labor Party (ALP) has a major internal problem over Morris Iemma's latest stunt. Many rank and file Laborites consider this a sort of betrayal of their position on securing employment for trained workers in the electrical and other, related trades. It is a last straw in the bargain sales of the people's assets. However, these Laborites should not have been surprised. Labor has been selling off Australian assets since the 1980's. Labor has sold out every sector of the Australian working people.
Australia First opposes any sale of the electricity supply. Australia First opposes any sale of Australian public assets and advocates, openly and without apology, that whatever has been sold off in the sacred name of privatisation - should be nationalized. The infrastructure of this State and our country, belongs in Australian hands.
Australian families are doing it hard under the regime of privatisation and globalisation. If there are any honest men and women in the ALP, it is time they look again at where they are. Time to go - and leave the traitors to their rewards!
Western Suburbs: New Leaflet Scandal?
A new 'leaflet scandal' is brewing in Western Sydney. The Liberal Party had a bad press over fake leaflets issued during the last Federal poll, crude documents that purported to say Labor was Islamic-terrorist-friendly. Some Liberals have been caught out pushing them about. Now, reports have reached Australia First of leaflets in our name in the Western Suburbs, leaflets that are overly-strident in condemning the pattern of African refugee settlement. Threats have been received on our answering line that the Human Rights And Equal Opportunity Commission are going to get us.
How convenient. The police have become involved, even though the leaflets are hardly (in this instance, as opposed to false electoral advertising in the Liberals' case) a police matter. Is someone trying to get evidence against Australia First such that our electoral campaign can be 'damaged'?
Sutherland Shire Liberal Party Wrangles Good For Australia First
Widespread comment was expressed in the major media concerning Liberal Party internal wrangles that saw the local Federal MP for 'Cook' refused membership in his own local party branch.
The Liberal Party faction loyal to David Clarke was behind this gaffe. This faction was re-formed In August 1996 from the residue of an earlier so-called 'conservative' grouping. Tony Abbott was present at the foundation meeting. The faction was called back into existence to combat the emergence of Hanson and was in operation even before (!!!!!!!) she made her Maiden Speech in Federal Parliament, the event that effectively initiated her movement. The faction was designed to ensure there was little loss of Liberal membership to Hansonism and to rein back in those Liberal supporters who might be influenced by her. It was a clever ploy.
The faction of course has its own peculiarities and these things have lives of their own. Yet, through it all is the faction's claim to be a patriotic force. It will wrap itself up in the flag and express a conservative social ethos. It will criticise political correctness and espouse 'strong' lines on national defence and religion. It has been critical of "Muslim extremists" and the Muslims' inability to "integrate" into Australia.
In truth, the faction is ardently committed to immigration and its own version of multiculturalism. In recent times, the faction has been recruiting Lebanese "Christians", Assyrian "Christians" and amongst Vietnamese and other groups. A few years ago, the faction recruited former members of the South Lebanon Army, a criminal mercenary force at the service of Israel and which committed innumerable atrocities.
This commitment to migrant recruitment has seen the Libs in the Sutherland Shire bring in large numbers from amongst these groups to build Clarke-faction-controlled branches.
The more the Liberals brawl and the more aliens brought into the Shire to participate in Liberal politics, the less likely it is the party will stand well in the Council polls. Rumour has it, one leader in the faction, himself drawn from amongst these migrant groups, will be a prominent candidate.
Leaflets Under Distribution In Blacktown City And Sutherland Shire
Leaflets in support of Australia First candidates are under distribution in Blacktown City and the Sutherland Shire, courtesy of local members and friends of the party. The quantity of material has been calculated to cover target wards.. The party has received some encouragement from local people. The drive began on March 15 in Blacktown and has just commenced in the Shire.
Local Newspapers Tip Off The Voters
February The Sutherland Shire Leader (Feb. 14) reported that Australia First intended to contest a ward of the Sutherland Shire Council. The article was fair. It reported the local traitor Mayor, David Redmond, as saying: Australia First was a "single issue party" and that councillors had to be able to deal with "all members of the community." Hardly is Australia First single issue - and which members of the community was he talking about?
February : The Camden Advertiser (Feb. 21) reported that Australia First is looking at candidates in Camden.
There has been speculation over both areas for some time in the major press.
