‘Hollywood’ drug squads over the top

I guess we have to thank Hollywood for the enduring myth that a black-clad squad of elite 'blokes', preferably with cool helicopters, from the capital are needed to crack down on really serious crime in hick parts of the country like Mullumbimby.

El’Tara Mahatma, Main Arm

I gratefully appreciate the diversity of speakers presenting at both Ngara and now Turning Point Talks. Max Igan’s opinions on the harmful effects of vaccines and 5G are shared by many doctors and informed people across the planet. So are his views on the very real conspiracies at work behind current events. Turning Point Talks is organised by a team of people who together decide who they will invite to talk to the local community. Dr. Liz Elliott is one of the people on the team. To single out and critcise the talks run by this wonderful woman is atrocious. Liz worked tirelessly in the emergency department at Mullumbimby hospital in service to this community for many years. She is a very generous, conscientious woman who actively has cared for many. Her participation in Ngara greatly supported the cause, energetically and financially. For anyone to insult her by criticising the Turning Point Talks is a very low call. I would hope our community would encourage proactive involvement and diversity in knowledge and opinions.


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.
