Putting your ‘Queen’ money where your mouth is

I've never felt much either way about the Queen. I've never held her in as much disdain as I've held some of our prime ministers, and never held her in as much esteem as I have held, for example, Uncle Archie Roach.

Trampling of the graves of the murdered: reply to Will Liley

As I read Will Liley’s response to my article in dedication to my late uncle, I recalled the poem in Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s novel Clandestine in Chile:

‘Everyday people want action on climate change, a fairer society and love our ABC. But time and again, the hard right’s toxic politics stand in the way.’

So say the folks at GetUp, who are launching their federal election campaign in Bangalow tonight.

‘They’ve got big money and party machines, but we’ve got real grassroots power in communities all across the country. And when we come together, we can change what’s possible in our politics,’ a group spokesperson said.

What: Federal Election Launch in the Northern Rivers area
When: Monday, 4th February, 2019 at 7pm to 8:30pm
Where: Bangalow A & I Hall, Station St, Bangalow, NSW, 2479

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.

  1. It would serve us well to vote for Get Up. The change of all ‘change’
    is in dire need of those worth looking after. Let’s learn to trust in
    what’s obviously a truth that can’t be bought. See Get Up’s track
    record. Begin to believe again.
