Edward (Eddie) Koiki Mabo, was born on Mer (Murray) Island in 1936.
He was exiled from the Island when he was 16, and worked across northern Queensland and the Torres Strait.
He then settled in Townsville with his young family in 1962.
Eddie established Australia’s first black community school in 1973.
In 1982 Eddie Mabo and four other Islanders initiated legal action, claiming customary ownership of their lands on Mer Island.
After years of controversy in the United States, the use of oral polio vaccine (OPV) was discontinued in 2000 due to its proven link with vaccine-derived poliovirus (VDPV), and in the UK circa 2004.
The use of an injected and inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) replaced its usage in the Western world, while oral polio vaccine continues to be used in the developing world.
(Truthstream Media.com) At least he certainly OUGHT to have known that oral polio vaccines were discontinued in the U.S. due to their known contribution to vaccine-derived paralysis.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation created the GAVI alliance to push vaccinations on the poorest parts of the developing world in the name of “saving lives” and stopping disease.
In particular, Bill Gates expects to take credit for wiping out polio worldwide by making it one of his primary issues. But at…

It is very rare for the mainstream media to critically report on questionable activity by the pharmaceutical industry and especially by vaccine manufacturers, so the recent rash of news stories about a “shady” and “patently unethical” offshore vaccine trial funded by billionaire entrepreneur Peter Thiel is intriguing.
Twenty patients on the quiet Caribbean island of St. Kitts were reportedly given an experimental genital herpes virus vaccine by a small private vaccine manufacturing company called Rational Vaccines in 2016.
A maverick scientist had developed his own risky genital herpes vaccine to inject into unwitting subjects on the secluded paradise island which has pockets of poverty, the story goes. The “weakened but not dead” virus vaccine was particularly concerning to doctors. Unwilling to be fettered by the bother of Food and Drug Administration bureaucratic tangles and impatient to get his drug to market, the scientist…

Monsanto who like to present themselves as the benevolent corporation that is set to solve the hunger problems of the world … is imprisoning people for sharing their seed?
Their previous foray into that department with the production of Golden Rice that was genetically modified and supposed to be enriched with Vitamin A didn’t cut the mustard it seems.
“No functioning Vitamin A rice has been produced in over 20 years of research” [Independent Science News] Don’t be fooled, this company is about everything butfeeding the hungry. Corporations have no qualms about lying and their uppermost concern is profits not people. This is what will happen if they get their foot in the door of your country. Unfortunately for NZ the foot got in the door decades ago with Roundup which farmers here love & won’t have a bar of any independent research about in my experience. Hence…

How to be rid of the ‘Aboriginal problem’ … unashamedly a mining magnate recommends herding them into a specified area & adding sterilization chemicals to their drinking water. That was the then Prime Minister’s friend & not that long ago either. Quite an eye opener.
Drawing on John Pilger’s long association with the first people of his homeland Australia, Utopia (2013) is both an epic portrayal of the oldest continuous human culture, and an investigation into a suppressed colonial past and rapacious present.
The WWF may have a friendly panda for a logo, but amongst the poorest of the poor it’s known for something else: violent thugs called ecoguards.
Last week, an appalling complaint was filed against the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) by Survival International, an organization that champions the human rights of indigenous people. Invoking a process normally used against multinational corporations, the complaint accuses the WWF of abusing and victimizing rain forest dwellers in Cameroon.
Located on Africa’s west coast, Cameroon is about the size of California. Approximately half of its 23 million people lack basic sanitation, so the risk of contracting waterborne diseases there is high. Life expectancy is 57 years, amongst the shortest in the world. Per capita GDP in the European Union is $37,800. In Cameroon it’s $3,200. During the past few years, Cameroon’s government has had its hands full responding to Boko Harem terrorist attacks near the border it shares with northern neighbour, Nigeria. But fundamental rights and freedoms were fragile well before that.

The Australian ABC TV Four Corners program has revealed shocking CCTV images of mostly Aboriginal children being horrendously abused, assaulted and tortured by prison guards in a juvenile detention centre in Australia’s Northern Territory (NT). Australia has been shocked. The Coalition Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull set up a Royal Commission to investigate the matter but this (a) involves the complicit NT Government, (b) does not address horrendous nation-wide abuse of detained Aboriginal children, and (c) will ignore other massive child abuse within Australia and overseas in which child-abusing Australian Governments are complicit.
In writing this analysis of horrendous child abuse in Australia I am simply one decent Australian citizen without the vast resources of the Australian Federal Government. However it is likely the except for the shocking details revealed by Four Corners and similar abuses against imprisoned children in the NT , the rest of a mountain of Australian Government-complicit child abuse as detailed below will be ignored due to the highly restricted terms of reference of the proposed Royal Commission. Thus, for example, a current $500 million Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse is confined to child abuse in state, religious and other institutions but will ignore a mountain of other child abuse – while it is estimated that up to 40,000 children have been subject to child sexual abuse by Catholic religious personnel in living memory, an estimated 4.4 million Australians adults have been subject to child sexual abuse, notably in the home or by family friends and relatives .
Australians are quite rightly upset because the Catholic Church hierarchy failed to act to expose and stop long-term, egregious child sexual abuse of up to about 40,000 Australian children by Catholic Church personnel. However look-the-other-way Australia resolutely ignores 4.4 million Australians adults who have been sexually abused as children, and the avoidable deaths since 9-11 of 27 million Muslims (half being children) in Muslim countries being war criminally violated by the US Alliance of which pro-Zionist, pro-Apartheid Israel, US lackey Australia is a slavish member.
The right-wing Australian Coalition Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, has announced that the Royal Commission will be confined to abuse of juvenile detainees in the Northern Territory and will not be concerned with similar violent abuses occurring in other states of Australia. Further, the Royal Commission will be will be jointly run by the Coalition Federal Government together with the utterly disgraceful Coalition-like Country Liberal Party (CLP) Northern Territory Government which is clearly complicit in these atrocities i.e. this is like putting Dracula in charge of the blood bank. Furthermore, the Royal Commission will be conducted by a Northern Territory judge .
