RELEASE Benjamin Batterham from custody WITH NO CHARGES NOW!

I've just seen on the news that a Newcastle man Benjamin Batterham had his home invaded by a criminal who just got out of jail - apparently he found him near his baby’s room at 3:30am. Benjamin chased him down and tackled him to the ground, where he was held until police arrived - he later died in hospital. Now Benjamin is being charged with MURDER, for protecting his home and family! What are you supposed to do, lay down and die and let unspeakable things happen to your loved ones while you wait for the police? Homeowners should be able to defend their families from criminals who break into their homes - and Benjamin should be released now!!!

Ask NSW ODPP to justify why two men are avoiding prosecution for rape and death of woman

The NSW Director of the ODPP (Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions), Lloyd Babb has seen fit not to prosecute two men who, it is alleged, raped and murdered a mother of seven on a Northern NSW beach in January, 2011. It is reported here on that "Adrian Attwater, 42, and Paul Maris, 46, both admitted to having sex with a woman, only identified as Norma, on a beach on the NSW north coast on January 27, 2011 but claimed it was consensual, The Daily Telegraph reports. After the encounter in the back of a vehicle on a beach near Iluka the men burned a blood-soaked mattress and some of the 33-year-old woman's clothes before seeking help. A forensic pathologist who examined Norma said the injuries she sustained "were more severe than those which occur in even precipitous childbirth". It was also reported in the same article that "Following a 2014 inquest State Coroner Michael Barnes referred the men to the DPP but the DPP's director Lloyd Babb has refused to charge them. The inquest found that both men had lied about what had occurred on the evening of Norma's death and with a blood alcohol level of 0.35, she would have been too drunk to consent to sex." If Norma was too drunk to consent to sex, that is rape. Norma was left bleeding and died from her injuries. If someone dies from the result of injuries sustained during rape wouldn't you class that as murder, or at the very least, manslaughter?  Please sign this petition to let Director Lloyd Babb know that the public doesn't support his decision and wants these two men prosecuted and held responsible for their actions.

Justice for Stephanie Scott

This is a petition to the NSW Department of Public Prosecutions to appeal the pathetic 15 month sentence handed down to Marcus Stanford for being an accessory after the fact of Steph's murder by his brother Vincent. I was a part of the search party for Stephanie Scott - before we found out that she’d been raped and murdered at the school where she worked. The news rocked our community. Now I’ve just heard that the man who covered up her murder will be let out 15 days - it makes me sick. Steph was my daughter's teacher and friend - the memories of the desperate search for her are etched in my mind. It’s a horrendous blow to us all that this man who helped Stephanie’s killer cover up her murder has only been sentenced to 15 months in prison. He even took her wedding rings and jewellery to a pawn shop to cash in on her death. This man will be out of prison in just over two weeks. The injustice is shocking. I cannot imagine how Stephanie’s family are feeling knowing that someone who played such a key role in their daughter’s death is getting off so lightly. His sentence is pathetic - please sign & share my petition for the Department of Public Prosecutions to appeal this sentence!

Protect victims of home invasions, not the criminals!

A criminal intrudes into a family's home, in the middle of the night and the owner of the home is forced to defend his family. In the process of making a citizen's arrest until the police arrive, the criminal sustains a broken neck and later dies in hospital. But something went wrong in this story. The hero, the owner of the home and father, was charged with murder today for protecting his family, himself and his RIGHT to safety in his own home. As a country we have to stand up and say NO WAY. Not in my name.  What message are we sending otherwise? Not only are law-abiding citizens put under even more pressure in the event that they are the victim of a home invasion, because they are made fearful to even defend themselves, but criminals are empowered to risk breaking laws, and the boundaries maintained in a civil society, knowing they are protected by laws that should be protecting the innocent. Common decency is at risk here people, this great country is going to end up a criminal's paradise at this rate and nobody will be safe anymore, not even at home. Help us get legislation changed, this hero father freed and ensure that Australia, at the very least, doesn't go down an insane road toward total disrespect of one another's most private sanctuaries - OUR HOMES.   ****UPDATE!*** We are now also raising money for Benjamin Batterham's family who have not only experienced a break and enter but are missing their father and husband, who stood up to protect them from an intruder in the middle of the night and ended up in custody, charged with murder. They must be going through hell right now while he fights for his freedom in court and we're hoping to help ease their stress. Anything you can spare for an ordinary family going through an extraordinary nightmare, will go a long way toward showing them that Australia is behind them, the real victims and that we care about doing what is right.

My 14 year old daughter was tormented to death - make bullying a crime

Last Christmas my 14 yr old daughter committed suicide after relentless bullying by a group of thugs. She’s now dead, and they walk free. The abuse was vile - they told Jessica to die, that she was an “ugly slut”, that “nobody would care if she killed herself.” Well she did kill herself and her revolting perpetrators remain unpunished. It still doesn’t feel real, to be writing this petition without her here. Jessica will never go to her formal, finish school, learn to drive, get married or have children. Our lives have been destroyed, they’ll never understand our pain. It’s so wrong, but bullying isn’t a crime in NSW. Until it becomes an offence kids like mine will continue to die. We have heard from thousands of kids across Australia since we lost Jessica, many are at breaking point – but without any repercussions for their actions, perpetrators will continue. Our story will air on SBS at 7:30pm TONIGHT (Tuesday 30th August) - we shared our story alongside lots of other brave families. We’d love you to tune in and watch. Here's the trailer. Please sign to stop another family from going through this hell - make bullying a criminal offence in NSW.

NSW Premier: my 9 year old daughter was raped and killed – don't allow her murderer insulting new privileges

My name is Christine Simpson. My 9 year old daughter Ebony was walking home from her school bus when a cowardly paedophile named Andrew Garforth abducted, raped, bound her arms and legs and threw her into a dam. The Supreme Court sentenced this monster to life in prison. That was 23 years ago – but now it's come to my attention that his status has been 'downgraded' to a medium security prisoner, getting new privileges like doing woodwork courses and get a job in prison. Few people understand the pain of losing a child especially not in the circumstances of how we lost Ebony. As a parent, you NEVER get over it. The only solace we take is hoping that Andrew Garforth is living in a worse hell than the one he created for us. The thought that he can do courses or get a job is offensive to us as well as to the millions of Australians who expect more from our justice system. Please sign my petition to Premier Mike Baird. He has the power to intervene and reverse this decision – to give my family some peace and ensure the justice system doesn't allow rapist, killers like Andrew Garforth insulting new privileges. Yours faithfully Christine Simpson

Amend Tanilla's Murderer Warren Ross' Sentence to "Never to Be Released"

"No person with any modicum of humanity could not be moved by the circumstances of this murder," Justice Rothman said.  On the 5th of December 2013 Warren James Ross was convicted of the murder of 2 year old Tanilla Opal Warrick-Deaves. He was later sentenced to 40 years with a non-parole period of 30 years. "During Ross's sentencing hearing on Friday, Justice Stephen Rothman told the court that Ross had whipped the child with a belt while joking to her mother that he could make Tanilla scream. Ross responded by rolling his eyes and shaking his head." "Noting that Ross had shown no remorse and that his prospects for rehabilitation were "poor", Justice Rothman sentenced him to a maximum of 40 years in jail, with a 30-year non-parole period" On 26th of July, 2015 Warren Ross appeared in the Supreme Court to appeal his sentence. Not citing any wrong-doing by the police in the investigation or an error's in prosecution. Citing only the fear for his own personal safety in jail. "Crown prosecutor Sally Dowling SC reminded the court of the terrifying conditions Tanilla endured before her murder, arguing that torture was the only way to described Ross' offending" Ross' defence believes that the sentence does not adequately fit the crime. WE AGREE! However!  We feel his sentence is not harsh enough and this petition is to reflect our opinion and the overall opinion on the majority of members in society that when it comes to the TORTURE and MURDER of a child that the file should be stamped NEVER TO BE RELEASED.We want Warren Ross' file to be stamped NEVER TO BE RELEASED!  Justice Clifton Hoeben told the appeal court that Ross' taunting of Tanilla with a belt to "show he could make her scream without even touching her" was one of the "most horrible" incidents he had read during his career. This will begin the road to the justice we are seeking for Tanilla and will set a precedent in our legal system and our society that these types of crimes WILL NOT BE TOLERATED! Warren James Ross' sentence for the murder of Tanilla Warrick-Deaves MUST be amended to NEVER TO BE RELEASED!   Who is Tanilla Opal Warrick-Deaves? Tanilla; A bright, bubbly toddler - A delicate 2 year old girl. Tanilla loved pushing her dolls in a pram, coloring in, learning new things and seeing the ocean She was two years and eight months at the time of her murder. Tanilla is the daughter of Adrian, the step daughter of Brooke. She has sisters and brothers.  Tanilla is your child. My child. Tanilla could be anyone at any given time. That is the sad reality of child abuse. It doesn't choose people based on socio-economic factors, race or religion. It does not discriminate and there is not a person on earth who not susceptible to this world-wide epidemic. Who is Warren Ross and WHY should he remain behind bars for the remainder of his natural life? Warren Ross is the person who murdered Tanilla. The boyfriend of her mother. He had moved into Tanilla's home only 2 months prior to the day in August, 2011 that he beat Tanilla until he laid her unconscious body in a pram in the corner of a room and left her there to die. This was not the first instance of abuse that Ross made Tanilla endure, he routinely abused her and her two older sisters in the same manner Tanilla was abused (Or what he would refer to as "punishment"). Ross was particularly heinous and would brag and laugh about the abuse he made them endure, as evidence by the conversation in regards to 2 year old tanilla: "I can make her scream - Watch this" and at a later stage "Watch me make her scream. I'll tell her I'm getting the belt" At this point Ross told the child he was getting the belt and she screamed in fear. Tanilla, essentially, seemingly for the purpose of discipline & toilet training, was required to run laps of the lounge room, hit with objects, including an electric cord, and forced to stand in one place for extended periods. Tanilla was TWO YEARS OLD at the time of these punishments. 19 July 2011: The bruising from which Tanilla suffered was so significant that she was kept home from day care in order to prevent the abuse being reported. Tanilla did not again attend day care. 25 July 2011: While out, Tanilla complained that her legs were tired and she could no longer walk. Tanilla was taken by the hand, lifted from the ground and struck. This caused Tanilla to fly through the air, and land on the ground approximately two metres from where she was thrown. Tanilla held out her arms and said, “Pick me up; pick me up” She was not picked up - Instead, she was sworn at and dragged along the street. These events occurred in a public street. 25 August 2011: Tanilla was required to run laps of the living room, which she was unable to complete due, to exhaustion. She was hit with a hand while Deeves was sitting on the lounge and able to observe this event. Tanilla was hit on the head, back and backside. Tanilla was dragged across the lounge room floor while being kicked in the backside. The striking of Tanilla ceased and she was required, instead, to run more laps of the lounge room. During the course of this “punishment” she wet herself. At that point she was struck with an electric cord and hit numerous times in quick succession across the back and the legs for about three to four minutes. Tanilla was taken to the bathroom and put in a cold shower. She was spluttering and crying. Deaves took Tanilla’s siblings to the kitchen and returned to the bathroom, where she heard Tanilla’s head hitting the glass of the shower. She heard that twice before she actually arrived at the bathroom. Deaves alleged hearing Tanilla screaming, “No, no, no”.When Deaves arrived at the bathroom, Tanilla was being held by her wet hair. Her head was banged into the shower wall. Her mouth was bloody. Deaves reported that she sought to intervene to stop the deceased being hit further. Tanilla had the front of her head slammed into the shower screen; her body was flailing. Her body was shaking. “You don’t like cold water, do you? You don’t shit in my house. You’re an animal”. He continued to shout at Tanilla “you’re a black dog; you’re a black cunt!” Tanilla was taken to the toilet and held, by her feet, with her head above the bowl. Tanilla was naked, wet and shivering. Tanilla looked as if she was falling asleep. Deaves was told to wake her up. Tanilla was grabbed and shaken and told to wake up. Deaves noticed that something was “not right”. Tanilla fell to her knees and could not get up again. At that time, Tanilla was lying on her stomach on the floor outside the bathroom. Tanilla was then kicked in the lower back or backside, causing the deceased to slide across the wet floorboards, hitting the top of her head into the hall cupboards. This occurred twice. He told Deaves to wake Tanilla up. He grabbed Tanilla by the arm and leg and threw her onto the mattress. Deaves placed Tanilla in a double stroller and put her in the Deaves and Ross bedroom. Deaves considered that Tanilla was brain damaged due to the blows to her head, because she did not wake within a few hours. Deaves stayed up watching Tanilla until early morning. Tanilla's breathing was intense and rattly. Friday 26 August 2011, Tanilla failed to regain consciousness. That morning, Deaves took her other two children to deliver one of them to school and to make some purchases at a local shop. During the course of the day, people (family of Ross and Deaves and friends) attended the house, but Tanilla was hidden from them. Saturday 27 August 2011: emergency services were contacted. At 4.08am an ambulance arrived. Police also attended. The deceased was conveyed to Wyong Hospital, where her death was confirmed. An autopsy was conducted on 28 August 2011: It found extensive bruising at various stages of healing to Tanilla’s head, torso, arms and legs. These were recent and historic bruises. The findings were that there was clear and unequivocal medical evidence of sustained physical violence of a non-accidental type, possibly up to several weeks before death. Tanilla had previously been healthy, with no major medical issues. The direct cause of death was blunt force head trauma. The autopsy, while confirming that the cause of death was the traumatic head injuries as described earlier, also expressed the view that Tanilla may well have survived if she had received prompt medical treatment and the report indicated that the greater the delay in seeking medical attention, the greater the chance was that Tanilla would not survive. The failure to obtain medical treatment was a substantial cause of the death of the deceased.

Stop Australian supermarkets repackaging fruit and veg

Overwhelmed by a sea of plastic? Want to do something about it? In all the supermarkets in Australia and some independent greengrocers we often see fruit and vegetables sold packaged in plastic bags. The same retailers will sell the particular fruit or vegetable both in pre-packed and loose form, which leads one to believe that the pre-packed version is simply offered for convenience or to maximise profits. However when one considers the huge amount of plastic that is used for making this packaging it wouldn't be hard to believe that the damage to the environment would be the same or even more than that which plastic carrier bags cause. There is not reason why fruit and vegetables(with very rare exceptions) can't be sold in their natural form by weight. Furthermore the supermarkets can replace the small clear plastic bags that they place on the fruit and vegetable aisles with brown paper ones (same as those that they offer for buying mushrooms). Soft fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, grapes and blueberries can also be sold in rugged cardboard punnets instead of plastic ones. Cardboard punnets are made of recycled paper and cardboard and they can be recycled again and they are biodegradable. Furthermore, cardboard does not contain any BPA or similar chemicals which are present in plastic packaging and which can leach into our food and end up in our bodies. We have the power to stop retailers from offering fruit and vegetables pre-packed in plastic packaging which is not necessary and causes pollution. Let's do this.

SAVE AUSTRALIAN ANIMALS/MARINE LIFE IN DANGER. Revise harmful Invasive Animal Legislations

  To the Australian Politicians, Main Issue 1 a Your Environmental control systems are fragmented. See the big picture and have you ever witnessed so many animals get killed all over this country Australia! by Invasive Animals Australia. Is it not obvious that each territory is running a killing havoc with our precious animals and marine life.Its completely unnecessary and abnormal in forms of addressing these issues for farmers and their natural surroundings. Farmers can capture these animals in more humane ways, using traps then rangers taking these animals to zoos and sanctuaries, animal carers & WIRES. Main Issue 1 b. Can you please tidy up a reckless situation which includes MP Barnaby Joyce in the National Party for Australian Agriculture, KIAA. Kangaroo Industry, Primary Industry, Shooters Party, NPWS, NPWS rangers and shooters, OEH, Bio security legislations and Invasive animal legislation involving animal cruelty Marine life cruelty, Australians like their animals and marine life.These people have use excuses to protect farmers, but in reality, they are killing for a meat industry, skin sports industry. What is this NSW Environment, climate change & water ?, what is this National Parks? your 'Handbook for Kangaroo Harvesters'. (YourHandbook for Kangaroo Harvesters - · PDF file)4 Handbook for Kangaroo Harvesters Introduction DECCW has prepared this handbook to help kangaroo harvesters meet the NSW Government’s requirements Primary Industry cannot label all these animals as invasive species then use that as an excuse to market their dead meat for selling commercially. How dare your government mass murder our Native kangaroo species to grind into PET FOODS, fox baits, wild dog baits, export human consumption to 70 countries. This is downright wrong, its virtually stealing and robbing our wildlife native animals that belong to this COUNTRY ' AUSTRALIA'. These animals do not belong to politicians, or shooters, or pet food suppliers! Absolutely NOT! and this True Native Kangaroo Wildlife is not for export for 70 countries on your target list including Russia, Korea, China, USA, human consumption, skins for sporting accessories, you virtually stole WILDLIFE, you downgraded these special animals so you can treat them as invasive! then KILL! PROFIT. Main Issue 1c. Have politicians tried to listen to comments made by Australians & an international community about animal cruelty. Politicians were voted in to represent all, not just Primary Industry, Bio-security and Invasive Animals Australia, using unending excuses to slaughter our animals. The Greens Party and National Parks NPWS, have also used unending excuses for vegetation damage and labelled all these animals including Brumbies (wild horses) FERAL! taking advantage of government grants/funding to eradicate Australian animals. This is so corrupt it needs an internal review. It was these same groups that oppose hunting when previous NSW Liberal Premier Barry O'Ferral reversed the conservation policies to allow hunting inside National Parks and Conservation Parks, Weirdly these groups have since joined INVASIVE ANIMALS AUSTRALIA to eradicate most of the animals by NPWS rangers and shooters. ALL EXTREMELY HYPOCRITICAL! Game hunting inside National Parks should be banned. As well as pouring poisonous chemicals into rivers!. Do you understand how bad the government has behaved by allowing mining in the nearby reefs! Knowing the Great Barrier corals are dying and climate change action is needed.The Governments supporting this mine reflects how desperate politicians are to cash in and prepared to destroy Australia's most famous REEF! Affecting tourism and marine life! As much as you use tax payer funds to do your government jobs, there are many more ways to resolve this form of culling other then downright murdering our animals, birdlife and murdering our marine life. 1. Rabbit haemorrhagic disease (RHD), also known as rabbit calicivirus disease (RCD) or viral haemorrhagic disease (VHD), is a highly infectious and often fatal disease that affects wild and domestic rabbits of the species Oryctolagus cuniculus. The infectious agent responsible for the disease is rabbit haemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV), or rabbit calicivirus (RCV), genus Lagovirus of the family Caliciviridae. Do you accept there will be lawsuits should pet rabbits die from politicians delegating to bio-security for allowing these viral disease to be spread by mosquitoes, fleas, flies? Our cities do not need these viruses RHDVK5, contain it in your farms! Provide an adequate vaccine by vets for the defence of these human spread viruses now. 2. Snowy Mountain Brumbies, How many horses are slaughtered! Why is the entire control especially Primary Industry NSW run by the Shooters Party? Their scientists are all game hunters! There is no fair votes inside these organizations! Hundreds of wild horses slaughtered in abattoirs! Shame again on Invasive Animals Australia, for passing policies that allow them to label wild brumbies as pests!. Have you politicians wondered it could be more financially viable to build dams or ponds for these Brumbies to drink water from, There are endless reserves to relocate these Brumbies. Public land belongs to all taxpayers! Public land is not owned by politicians! Australian regional landholders with adequate fencing can seriously help adopt Brumbies Australia wide. Information is provided here how to adopt your Brumbies The Australian Brumby Alliance has registered members country wide that are volunteer groups rehoming these beautiful animals. Save a brumby, adopt a brumby, sponsor a brumby 3. How many Koalas are still being culled, (they culled over 900 Koalas in Victoria under Liberals, now under Labour, they stated they would continue to cull). Have they planted more eucalyptus trees to feed the Koala population? Reference to Great Ocean Road in Victoria, previously under Greg Hunt as the Federal Environment MP. Currently approved in NSW, Why are you politicians from NSW Liberal party allowing the Koala Habitat clearance to make way for the NSW RMS project when there were alternate routes?. Currently approved in NSW, why are you Liberal politicians allowing the logging in Port Macquarie?. You are harming most Koalas inside these habitats. Currently there is an emergency volunteer Koala hospital and a volunteer Koala Ambulance in Port Macquarie from the destruction and harm. 4.  Is Eco tourism important to politicians?,  Australian Primary Industry is now making Australia FAMOUS for SLAUGHTERING AUSTRALIAN ANIMALS, MARINE LIFE, BIRDLIFE.  Read the petition comments from a world wide audience please. Your Environmental policies which labelled most animals feral, invasive, pests is wiping out this sector. Governments policies are not only harmful, many Territory and State government policies in this category are damaging to the extremes. Governments are ever changing and each will alter policies and whilst in government, why not make a difference to a healthy environment! History will always be around to remind. What is the responsibility/role of an 'Environment Minister' and 'Tourism Minister'?  Some Australian MP's are given two, three portfolios with conflicting cases which has become counter productive in its planning. (Example: Environment & Energy, Tourism and Trade, Environment, Planning, gaming). Q. What is eco tourism? A. Tourism directed towards exotic natural environments, intended to support conservation efforts and observe wildlife. Encouraging these activities does provide endless jobs for the communities. (Wildlife Science graduates coordinating research programs, wildlife educational activities for visitors and school children, the list is endless). 5. Should Australia be well known for slaughtering animals, birdlife and marine life? Animals/marine life/birdlife are part and parcel to our environment. 6. Australia has endless raging bushfires yearly during the summers, these native animals they label PESTS to be slaughtered inside our National parks using excuses for vegetation damage is false! The raging bushfires are from overgrown vegetation and these animals help trim the overgrown vegetation. Its time you politicians see the advantages of having animals inside National Parks and conservation Parks. Stop labelling animals PESTS so your partner political parties have access to shoot them dead! or poison them DEAD! 7. The Great Barrier Reef is Australia's most important natural asset and you all turned a blind eye to the problems facing this asset. Instead of saving it, you allow mining in this nearby reef. EVERYONE KNOWS THIS IS A SADISTIC INHUMANE CRUEL ACT OF IGNORANCE! THE GREEDY POLITICIANS OLD LABOUR PARTY NEED TO RISE ABOVE YOUR ILL MISTAKES AND REVERSE THE DAMAGE IMMEDIATELY and DO NOT ALLOW MINING NEARBY THE GREAT BARRIER REEF!  ITS AN UGLY HOLE, UGLY EYESORE OF A PROJECT THAT SHOULD NEVER EVEN HAVE BEEN GIVEN APPROVAL! THIS IS CORUPT. 8. STOP POURING POISONOUS CHEMICALS INTO THE RIVERS! BARNABY JOYCE FROM THE NATIONALS PARTY WANTS TO MASS MURDER CARPS  Why don't you make way FOR FRIENDLIER ENVIRONMENTAL GOVERNANCE THAT DOES CARE for Australia's natural assets, animal, marine life & birdlife, natural land/marine environments without polluting it further with poison chemicals! 9. STOP THE KANGAROO CULL AUSTRALIA WIDE and Canberra by SHOOTERS and territory government councils,  STOP IMMEDIATELY, you people that shoot innocent animals are so disgustingly barbaric its out of control in NSW, Canberra, OLD, WA, VIC. STOP IMMEDIATELY! The reasons for this slaughter in not justified! its a dated program that should be immediately terminated. These KANGAROOS are not on private pastures, its public land and they are living innocently in their own habitats. These animals belong to Australia, they belong to our natural environment, Primary Industry and Invasive animals Australia do not own our animals! Therefore have no right to do as they please towards our animals! 10. Why is Tasmania culling Wombats, issuing culling licences to kill these animals! Has this COUNTRY GONE ABSOLUTELY MAD? STOP LISTEN to the PEOPLE! 11. Looking for more animals to kill, NPWS,  Invasive Animals Australia, Invasive Animals NSW, next review is the DEER on their pest list pushed by the GREENS!, sweet innocent harmless DEERS Yes BAMBI, they now want to murder our DEERS! Shooters and farmers don't listen to INVASIVE ANIMALS AUSTRALIA! Shooters and farmers, don't listen to the GREENS PARTY! (Under Greens party, over 50,000 Deers are eradicated, culled by hunters in Victoria), using excuses of trampling, the road dirt trampling's are from your four wheel drives digging into the mud, yet blaming the innocent Deers. Update: Primary Industry NSW has decided to not label Deers Invasive leaving it to be hunted for game shooters in NSW, GREENS PARTY ARE ANGRY because they want 'Deer' to be labelled PEST! what is right with you people? sick?, Humans have become the pest in society wanting to label every animal a pest, shameful humans, shameful politicians. 12. Mass shootings by the Shooters Party in conjunction with Victorian Labour Party, how dare you wipe out waterbirds and wild ducks in your full weekend of shooting in the wetlands!. You destroyed beautiful natural wildlife to the extremes leaving thousands of birds mass buried. UGLY sight!       Farms need to build safer greenhouses for their crops and seedlings. In Bio-diversity every animal co-exist. Foxes attack their cattle if the rabbit population is non existent. Farmers can protect their private farms! Why bring viruses into the city park reserves, we don't breed herds in the city to feed the population. Brumbies are part of the Snowy Mountains environment, they have been living there well over 180 years. Its turning into a Wild Horse Meat Industry by Primary Industry. Primary Industry should support farmers by subsidizing adequate fencing for predators instead of pouring a constant amount of their tax paid funds into repetitive pesticides and poisons. What are you doing for farmers?     Koalas were brought into Great Ocean Road to become a tourist hotspot, then its all very hypocritical to cull them using excuses of starvation. Why have the rangers and environmental conservationists not replant eucalyptus trees for these Koalas! Why have you allowed the RMS to clear massive native vegetation to make way for the Pacific Hwy Road Extension when there were alternate routes available that doesn't require logging of eucalyptus tree habitats! Did you sell the timber from all this logging ? The public needs all the details! its public environment!.  25th June 2017, In Australia Wide ABC with Yasmin, Phillipa McDonald reported the NSW government is logging in Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour. You should not be harming the Koalas in Port Macquarie. You are logging right in the Koala Territory. STOP THIS HABITAT DESTRUCTION NOW!. This is contradictory to your protection policy for Koalas. Due to Koalas endangered status, you allow the habitat destruction and place new plans to allocate millions of dollars funding to map new Koala habitats for conservation therefore why destroy in the first place.    Government run agencies, NPWS, Invasive Animals Australia call themselves environmentalists, scientists, their excuses about saving bio diversity: save mosses, native plants, cattle pasture competing with tiny rabbits eating few pieces of grass!  What are you doing to the environment! Your actions are hypocritical! These agencies should retreat and make way for new agencies/councils that co-ordinate Australia wide re-homing of animals that farmers trap, remove humanely, transfer alive to local zoos, wildlife carers, wildlife organisations.    National parks NPWS, can't even tidy up the overgrown shrubs inside their reserves, its the tiny rabbits, deers and native animals that are helping them lawn their overgrown national park reserve shrub, weeds!.     Its a national disgrace! 'Dead bunny rabbits', 'Dead Waterbirds & dead Wild Ducks',  'murdered Kangaroos', 'murdered Brumbies', 'murdered Koalas', 'murdered Wombats', 'murdered Ponies', 'murdered Donkeys', Deer slaughters and other affected wildlife/birdlife/marine life poisoning and blowflies spreading RHDVK5, spreading Cyprinid herpesvirus 3 into lakes and rivers. Mining pollution from future mining operations near the Great Barrier Reef!. STOP clearing Habitats destroying all the trees, Koalas are hanging on roads and fences, birds have no more flight paths to land they are flying on road highways.                           The country is going backwards in 2017.                       The World is watching and they are alarmed!                                       ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

Justice for Detective Inspector Bryson Anderson

Thank you for your correspondence regarding the recent decision of the Court of Appeal in reducing the sentence applied for the murder of Detective Inspector Bryson Anderson by Mitchell Barbieri. I understand there are strong community concerns about the Criminal Court of Appeal decision and just after the decision I spoke with the Director of Public Prosecutions Lloyd Babb about the judgment. He is reviewing the case. I have also spoken to Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione about the case. Yesterday I spoke with Detective Inspector Bryson Anderson’s widow, Donna and his brother Warwick to express my condolences on their loss and inform them of the process moving forward. As there is the possibility of an appeal to the High Court regarding the sentence, it is properly now a matter for decision by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. Thank you for taking the time to raise your concerns with me.
