Woman critically injured in fight; second woman charged with attempted murder – Tweed Heads

A woman remains in hospital in a critical condition and a second woman has been charged following an alleged stabbing at Tweed Heads yesterday.

In light of Chinese Ambassador to Australia Xiao Qian’s inflammatory comments the other day at the National Press Club in Canberra, one has to wonder why on Earth we are allowing members of the Chinese Communist Party to use this nationally televised platform to spout Chinese Government propaganda?

The Chinese Communist Party has ill intentions towards Australia, and they are a threat to peace and stability in our region.

It is absolute madness for the National Press Club and the taxpayer-funded ABC to roll out the red carpet and give a soapbox to people, and hostile foreign governments, who are clearly acting against Australia’s sovereign national interests.

They should be banned from appearing again.

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. Matt the CCP is extremely dangerous, they take propaganda (bullshit) to a whole new level, the real danger is that they are not constrained by any checks and balances, they answer to no-one and they can’t be got rid of, it’s a brave new world.

    • I invite everyone to replace ‘CCP’ with ‘USA’ in Keith’s post and read it again. Australia is in danger because we are jammed between China(Trade) and America(Military). If we went back to the policies of our first Federal Parliament, most problems we have, including this one, would disappear within a few short years.

        • I love White People, not the people who control our nations. Let me know when the White ethno-state is established and I will move my family there. If this is confusing to you, look up what the policies of our first Federal Parliament were. Keywords: PM Barton, Protectionist Party Australia

  2. We allow members of the Chinese Communist Party to use a nationally televised platform, because we are Australia, not China.
    Can you all stop calling for cancel culture censorship every time someone says something you don’t like. We are Westerners. We give people enough rope, so if they are full of crap, they will end up hanging themselves where everyone can see it. Stop acting like a bunch of Marxist.

  3. WEN & THE RED CANDLE (Wen I-to – executed in 1946) Stefanie Bennett

    Putting on my ‘flag-ship colours’,
    my work boots and worn gloves –
    I go out to greet you dark visitor.

    You went by the way of the Western-bank.
    You will rise, in that same place; this time
    carrying the whole of China with you.

    Brother poet, the chronicles have been
    reshuffled. Thankfully
    your works are no longer set alight.

    No! I do not wish to cause discomfort, but
    the news I bring is… desolate.
    Millions now join you in exile.

    Confidentially, there are no safe crossings.
    Reason drifts with the river-wind.
    We must turn again from the Tie-an-men.

    All is circumspect, my dark visitor.
    The garrisons of greed are treacherous and
    conduct slavery quite openly. The Globe

    of ‘precious change’ has shrunk
    ten thousand times since
    you blessed it with your tears…

    As you prophesized, the ‘dead water’ has risen.
    Peking’s paper ghosts are the same
    as their Western counterparts.

    You said ‘build a bridge’ … ‘cross over’!
    Instead, they built a star-ship to heaven;
    a Red Sun so bright
    none can see the way back.

    I go out to greet you, dark visitor – your
    old war-cry at my throat. Our white flag
    is no surrender but a soiled heart
    tattered by grief.

    • Stef eulogising a National Socialist. Didn’t see that coming. It was almost legible too. Some parts of it I almost liked. We really are living in the end times.
