Civil Liberties Australiaspacer

Independent MHR Andrew Wilkie launches a new bid for a national Bill of Rights in Parliament, even as ASIS and other spooks demonstrate increasing control over ordinary Australians. The spooks control passports and overseas travel, even whether you can make submissions to parliamentary committees, one analyst claims. Meanwhile, Australian Border Force is rotting from the inside out, the Australian Federal Police say.

Other items in this issue include:

  • Is Australia going backwards? Treasurer called to account
  • Why do we treat refugees in a sub-human manner?
  • Kirby plumps for online courts for better access to justice
  • One state moves over police complaints, wrongful convictions
  • Support high for euthanasia law
  • AFP probes privacy…when it suits them
  • Judges thwart men’s triple-speak divorce
  • Prisons – in crisis – come under double criticism

Commenting ...our policy

We welcome comments, for alternative views and to generate debate. We check comments before they are published, to make sure they are on-topic, family-friendly and in keeping with our publishing principles. To make sure your comments are published, please...

  • stay on topic
  • leave out swear words and bad language
  • be careful not to libel or defame any body
  • do not be -ist: (race, age, sex, etc)
  • avoid posting someone else's copyright material, and
  • concentrate on the factual more than the emotional (though there's room for both)
If your comments stray from these principles, they may not be posted, or may be edited to remove bits we find offending or inappropriate.

If you see something in a comment that you think is objectionable, please let us know your reasons.

We usually post comments at the bottom of articles, with a link off the Home page as well. But we may use them elsewhere, or as a separate article (we also reserve the right to not post them at all, at our sole discretion). See also our Terms of Use and Privacy policies links below.
