Julia Gillard had criminal allegations made against her in 1995 when she was accused of helping her boyfriend steal over $1,000,000 from the Australian Workers Union (AWU) and helping him spend the money on such things as her personal home renovations and dresses.

Julia Gillard has never denied helping him rip off the $1,000,000 plus dollars, what she has done is denied doing it knowingly. Her part was helping set up an account called the “AWU Members Welfare Association No 1 Account” and possibly other accounts that the money was laundered through when she was a lawyer working for Slater and Gordon who were the solicitors representing the Australian Workers Union.

The allegations against Julia Gillard were initially raised in the Victorian Parliament in 1995.

In an interview with Glenn Milne of the Sydney Sunday Telegraph in 2007 Julia Gillard said:

“These matters happened between 12 and 15 years ago,” Ms Gillard told The Sunday Telegraph. “I was young and naive.

“I was in a relationship, which I ended, and obviously it was all very distressing. I am by no means the first person to find out that someone close turns out to be different to what you had believed them to be. It’s an ordinary human error.

“I was obviously hurt when I was later falsely accused publicly of wrong-doing. I didn’t do anything wrong and to have false allegations in the media was distressing.”

The article also says “But she has strenuously denied ever knowing what the association’s bank accounts were used for.”
See above link to Heaps of Info on THE SINISTER PRIME MINISTER, This will truly amaze you as the site has Oodles of info on her and tells it Dam Straight Not Like Gillard’s Hypothetical upon Hypertheticals Crap Learn the full Truth of Her she does not want KNOWN.!!

Rally in Melbourne: End Indefinite Detention, End ASIO checks on Refugees

Friday, 25th May 12.30 – 1.30 ; Dept of Immigration, Casseldon Place (cnr Spring and Lonsdale Sts) Melbourne VIC

By: Refugee Action Collective

At least 56 refugees are facing indefinite detention after being declared a ‘security threat’ by ASIO. This includes two families with young children. They have no right to review or appeal the decision, nor do they have the right to know the grounds on which they have been rejected. Three Tamil refugees rejected by ASIO have attempted suicide in Broadmeadows detention centre. Alongside this mounting despair inside the camps, there is a growing chorus of outrage against this affront to natural justice. Join the Refugee Action Collective (Vic) in calling on the government to scrap ASIO checks. Refugees are threatened by persecution and danger, not a security threat. The government must act immediately to release the refugees into the community.

What is the Robin Hood Tax you ask? Check out this video!

Robin Hood – Takes from the rich, and gives to the needy.

At 7am, Friday the 21st October, 2011 the Occupy Melbourne Protesters were issued with an eviction order to remove themselves from Melbourne’s City Square by 9am or risk forced eviction by Victorian Police. A cyclone fence was then erected by council around the protesters to ensure no one could enter or leave.

Occupy Melbourne protesters determined to have their voices heard decided to defy the public eviction order and stand firm in their grounds for Protesting against Corporate Greed, among other things. A tense stand off between police and activist then ensued. Arousing public solidarity, hundreds of local citizens began surrounding the Victorian Police.  In Solidarity and some in curiosity, the bystanders were witnesses to the horrific brutality by the Victorian Police Dept.

By midday, activists were being dragged away by police using excessive force. Activists were also taunted by police whilst being arrested, with reports of police making derogatory comments to activist and trying to initiate a violent reaction by protesters. Mounted Units and Dog Units were also called to the scene.  A person was trampled by a mounted officer and another was punched in the face. Numerous accounts of excessive police force have been recorded and uploaded to Youtube.

Throughout the afternoon the protesters were pushed back from City Square by mounted forces and riot police to where they currently occupy, Trades Hall Building. The trades building has given the Occupy Movement permission to stay on the premises for the evening. The trades building is currently surrounded by Police and will be throughout the night.

Some protesters were held and released without charge but given and “Move On” Order that basically does not allow them to enter back into the CBD Area (certain blocks) until a future date. If they are arrested within that area, they will be charged. Information received shows these orders are governed by the Summary Offences and Control of Weapons Acts Amendment (SOCW).

Occupy Melbourne are organizing a rally to take place on Saturday 22nd October, and i suggest anyone who cares about our country and the way it is headed (and the world) then you should take part in having your voice heard. Check out @OccupyMelbourne @OccupySydney @OccupyBrisbane @OccupyPerth for more information on how you can get involved. or just head down to the Occupied areas!

If the Local and Federal Governments think that this is just going to “Go Away” then they are wrong. We have had enough of being silenced. Of seeing the injustice and having nothing done by our electorates about it.  Australia is just as effected by the current global conditions as any other country. Our dollar is bouncing, Super is being wiped off our investments, people are losing jobs, food prices are skyrocketing, our agricultural land is being sold off to the highest mining bidder, what more do Aussies need to get  motivated? How about good ol’ Julia’s Lies or Abbotts lack of giving any clear policy on anything but “Narua!”

Write to your local MP, Harass them via Email, Twitter, Phone, Personal Appointments, tell them NO to Corporate Greed and Yes to Human Need. We need to start putting purpose and people Before Profits!

The Government of Australia has alot to answer for. It is the year 2011. The year the 99% rose up and took back the power from the 1%. No wonder they are fighting so hard to silence us.
