Sydney social meetup – February 2021

Dear Members and Supporters,

The Sustainable Australia Party NSW branch would like to invite you to a social event on the first Sunday in February in lieu of our usual local branch meetings. Now that COVID-19 restrictions have eased, and the future looks a whole lot brighter, we feel that this is a time for us to get reacquainted.

We will do an hour of local letterboxing from 3-4pm. Meet on the footpath at the front of the Kirribilli Hotel at 3pm to get your flyers and map.

Following this, we have booked a bistro table at the Kirribilli Hotel, from 4-5:30pm. Drinks can be purchased at the bar and should you decide to stay on after the function the pub serves meal as well.

We look forward to seeing you there and please be sure to RSVP (below) to this newsletter so we can confirm numbers.

Kind Regards

William Bourke
Sustainable Australia Party

    Faddi law and order in the USA and here are poles apart, as are issues of race, no matter how some try to manipulate the truth for their own ends. The protests held in this country are an insult to our police, who work hard to protect the public and are exposed to violence and trauma on a regular basis. There has never been slavery in this country like that in the USA. People have never been bought or sold. Only the use of convicts, the vast majority of whom were white. Images of so-called ‘enslaved’ aborigines are of convicts. Mostly guilty of sheep stealing.
    In the USA guns are everywhere, including automatic weapons. Anyone approached by a police officer could be carrying a concealed firearm, it is perfectly legal. Unsurprisingly, American police are heavy handed and quick to draw their weapons, quick to fire. Our police will only draw a gun as a last resort, and only fire if they or their colleagues face imminent danger. It happens very rarely – hence why it always makes the news. Even drawing a gun will lead to an investigation under our system.
    As for aboriginal deaths in custody, they are no more common, relatively speaking, than for caucasions, and are predominantly the result of drugs, natural causes and suicide. Not attacks by police. They do have a higher relative rate of incarceration. Contributing factors include entrenched social disadvantage, poverty, drug and alcohol abuse, historic ill treatment, racism, intergenerational domestic abuse and crime. These are the factors that need to be addressed. All these protests and focus on ‘us and them’ only inflames resentment on both sides, and perpetuates the racism. It provides ammunition to racists and further confirms to them their views. I mean, how is accusing people and their families of being thieves and murderers because of their race going to lead to ‘reconciliation’, whatever that is? It all does more harm than good and predominantly comes from a privileged few who have never faced such disadvantage themselves. Like the latte sipping hipsters.

    Sorry I missed it yesterday. Got thwarted by a mishap

    I was keen to discuss the following items:

    - Does SA have a position on housing affordability?
    I’m testing an idea to develop a shorting instrument for the Aussie housing market.
    To make prices more humane, karma to those that keep inflating the price because they benefit and a deterrent to quick buck developers.

    - On your page you have ‘Law and Order’ and increasing funding for police. Are you still on this motto given the new connotations to those words amid the USA’s civil unrest?

    - What do you think of the idea of disbanding the party after the world population hits say 3 billion? I think it would be great global PR if the party has an exit strategy and a number that etches in people’s heads

    I’d like to come, but it’s a 2+hr round trip for me to get there. Will think about it. 👍
