  7. Change of PM does not equate to a change in the agenda (Advocate 22 03)

    Posted 17 November 2015 by Adam Frogley (Indigenous)

    September 14, a day like any other. Historically, this date is peppered with a litany of significant events; for example, in 1752 the British Empire accepted and implemented the Gregorian calendar; in 1917 Russia was officially proclaimed as a republic and in 1985 the Golden Girls premiered on television for the first time. 

    The significant historical events on this date now encompass yet another auspicious occurrence, the rolling of the deeply unpopular Prime Minister, The Hon. Tony Abbott and the appointment of The Hon. Malcolm Turnbull as the 29th Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of

  8. The return of Mal Brough (Advocate 22 03)

    Posted 17 November 2015 by Adam Frogley (Indigenous)

    The appointment of Mal Brough as a Minister in the Turnbull Government can be seen as a blessing to many in the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander community.  Why you may ask? Well the answer is simple – he will not be the Minister for Indigenous Affairs.

    The former Member for Longman initiated a number of devastating decisions in his time as Minister for Indigenous Affairs; decisions that continue to have impact upon many Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people today.  Let me revisit just three of the profound determinations made by the previous Minister in the dying days of a failing

  10. 18C and the ‘right to be bigots’

    Posted 26 June 2014 by Adam Frogley (Indigenous)

    On 25 March 2014 – a watershed day in the debate of freedom of speech versus the right for all Australian citizens to be protected from acts of racial discrimination – Attorney-General George Brandis announced the Government intended to repeal Sections 18.B, C, D and E from the Racial Discrimination Act (1975), replacing them with a ‘strengthened’ version.

    This brought passionate pleas from many community organisations and individuals to immediately withdraw the proposal. 

    While it would appear that the Government is forging ahead with this move on the basis that they see fault with these sections of the Act, the explanations from the Attorney-General on why his new proposed wording would be beneficial fall far short of the existing protections in the Act.
