Australia has shown itself to be a self-interested bully in taking over Norfolk Island. The Norfolk Islanders didn't have debt before the GFC. They may not be real flash, but they're not enslaved. And whilst Australia heeded the call of the World Bank to go into more debt with the stimulus package, Norfolk Island weren't fooled into unnecessary debt which got blown on imported consumer goods anyway!
Australia has precious little to give these hard working, community minded people who clearly don't want Australia walking in and taking over.
As an Australian, I am ashamed of the way our government has treated the sovereign nation of Norfolk Island. We have illegally invaded and taken over governance and implemented our fascist/socialist agenda. Next we'll be exploiting its resources or creating a military base there.
Shame Australia, shame! Give Norfolk Island back to its people.
For more information see http://www.realstewcorp.com/norfolk/. A forum of the Norfolk Islands News is also available at http://www.norfolkonlinenews.com/ForumRetrieve.aspx; but I'm not sure how free this will be as the radio station has been muzzled.
DON'T LET THIS INJUSTICE CONTINUE. SPREAD THE NEWS AND MAKE SOME NOISE IN SUPPORT OF THE PEOPLE OF NORFOLK ISLAND.
