Quotes of the Week

"All billionaires want the same thing – a world that works for them. For many, this means a world in which they are scarcely taxed and scarcely regulated; where labour is cheap and the planet can be used as a dustbin; where they can flit between tax havens and secrecy regimes, using the Earth’s surface as a speculative gaming board, extracting profits and dumping costs. The world that works for them works against us.” [Journalist George Monbiot writing in The Guardian on 3 July 2019]

"Scott Morrison loves “quiet Australians”. The Abbott/Turnbull/Morrison government especially loves quiet charities, quiet scientists, quiet environmentalists, quiet journalists, quiet human rights commissioners, quiet workers in quiet unions and a quiet public broadcaster. It will burn for anyone who stays quiet – and threaten to burn down anyone who raises their voice.” [Pastor Brad Chilcott writing in , 8 July 2019]
