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. Yes,we do. Does it mean ‘Gave his office’ or ‘Gave him personally’?
    I remember Parliament Hill being flooded with protestors in Feb calling for the dissolving of parliament that then marched on the GGs house demanding he dissolve the Parliament early to stop Morrison. The GG fled to Sydney instead and the media labeled it a ‘Covid protest’. Was that around the same time?

    • The original Great Seal actually. And they were talking about lawful authority, they know political power comes from money and guns, as most of them were lefties. We ‘right wingers’ were trying to explain to them that lawful authority comes from consent of the governed and that being made to manitorially vote does not equal consent, nor does any sign or symbol.

      It’s quite interest when you get a complete cross section of the white population protesting something together. They suddenly all get along and are happy to talk to each other at length. They made a very nice temporary town with day care, homeschooling, food bank, communal cooking, and were very generous and accepting of each other. People kept saying it was the safest they had ever felt as they knew everyone else had their back. They weren’t so keen when some of us explained why and how it was happening and that Australian used to be just like Camp Epic before the Sixties. Oh, and a part from a lot of sunburn, everyone was fine afterward, there was no mass die off from Covid. Funny that.

    • Next time you are at your doctor, ask this question…. ‘Have you been under a gag order from APHRA for the last 2 years ordering you not to inform me of the known mRNA vaccine risks discovered over the last 22 years of animal/human trials and any discovered during this roll out?’.
      If I try to give you answers here and further information with links to published peer reviewed studies, the Echo is obligated to censor me by order of The Australian Press Council, though sometimes Echo pushes the limits for me, which I appreciate.
      If anybody needs questions answered related to this topic (I’m looking at you Rod) get the Echo to forward an email address to me and I’ll do my best to address any concerns/curiosities, or direct you to doctor/microbiologist in other country. I will most likely send you to publicly available videos of medical seminars and interviews by medical practitioners that Google is currently censoring, as those answer the common questions people have been asking me.

      • The Echo is a member of the Australian Press Council. The view of the APC is that whilst there is significant public interest in publishing a range of views on matters of public debate, there is no public interest in publishing significantly inaccurate and potentially harmful information concerning Covid-19 vaccines particularly in the time of a pandemic, and The Echo agrees with that view. It’s been obvious to us here at The Echo that many ordinary people unfortunately form their opinions by watching videos and other material on the net which appear to come from ‘medical’ sources, but contain misleading and inaccurate ‘factual’ material, or omit key facts or context. Some of that material contains straight-out conspiracy theories. Whilst readers are welcome to ask their doctors any question they want, The Echo does not accept, for example, that there is a conspiracy amongst doctors, or members of the APHRA, to not inform patients of the true risks and benefits of vaccination. The Echo would encourage readers to get their health information from reputable public health bodies in Australia.

        • “Some of that material contains straight-out conspiracy theories”

          Simon, just because you’re a conspiracist it doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you.
