Chan Han Choi should be congratulated.

This comment was first posted on The Conversation on 20th December 2017 in response to an article “Explainer: the charges against an Australian man accused of being an ‘economic agent’ for North Korea” by Kevin Boreham from  ANU. Australia should treat North Korea like any other country when it comes to trade. The economic sanctions against North Korea are illegitimate and aimed at preventing them from levelling the playing field regarding nuclear weapons. All nations have the sovereign right to defend themselves and North Korea is no different. The United States engages in trade involving nuclear weapons and the sale and purchase of parts for technology relating to the same. Just ask Israel. But you won’t see any US agents in Australia being prosecuted under this appallingly one-sided Weapons of Mass Destruction Act. Why. Because Australia is not just a signatory to the UN; it is a proxy for US foreign policy and that means preventing North Korea from being able to deter US aggression, like we have seen in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria. Well done Sir. You can hold your head high. Adam Bonner Brogo,...

Report on Migrant Settlement Outcomes

The Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia (FECCA) said today that it welcomed any recommendations of a Federal Parliamentary inquiry into migrant settlement outcomes which supported, encouraged and resourced the greater participation of migrant youth in Australian society. The Chairperson of FECCA, Ms Mary Patetsos, said that FECCA endorsed recommendations in a report by the Joint Standing Committee on Migration for an improved Adult Migrant English Program and for the funding of a migrant youth mentoring scheme focused on sport and the arts. “These are positive initiatives,” Ms Patetsos said. “We also welcome the recommendation that the Jobactive program include an employment support service specifically designed for newly arrived and longer term migrants.” “And the suggestion that support programs for newly arrived youth such as Youth Transition Support should be rolled out nationally is a good one.” However, Ms Patetsos said, FECCA was disappointed by sections of the report which place undue emphasis on crimes committed by young people born overseas. “The attempt to present certain ethnicities or cultural groups as having increased criminal tendencies is unfortunate and without basis.” “The widely-acclaimed success of Australia’s multicultural, diverse society is due to long-standing policies which include, embrace and support new migrants, rather than punitive measures.” “Indeed, Victorian Police, at their most senior level, have dismissed one so-called ‘migrant gang’ as a ‘non-entity’”, Ms Patetsos said.
