its sad times when a vote to secure the passage of legislation designed to inhibit the ability of students to organise politically (as well as access essential services) is bought with a promise to prohibit the sale of the abortion pill. and i feel like 2005 has brought a package of legislation designed to ensure the rolling back of civil liberties.

the racially motivated violence in cronulla makes me feel physically ill. whilst i know that the mainstream media skews its reporting with the specific intent to make its audience emote, after carrying a weight around in the pit of my stomach for days prior to van's execution, i can't believe a mere week later australia's racism is again on show. sad times.
