The Tragedy Of Mount Isa - 1965
Mount Isa, today very much a ghost town rather than Australia's largest copper producer and major source of lead and zinc. The industrial dispute stretching into months of deadlock has caused a complete shutdown of underground mining, and the resultant economic repercussion are little short of disastrous. Every working day this huge plant lies idle costs Australia a loss in export income of 135,000. Obviously, millions of pounds are involved. Intervening, the Queensland Govenment issued emergency orders in Council, principally aimed at preventing Labour Council President, McMahon, and unofficials miner's leader, Pat Mackie from returning to Mount Isa, after Trade union-Fund Raising discussions in Sydney. This is a memorial to Campbell Miles, who first discovered mineral in the Mount Isa area in 1923. In those days isa was a cattle town and transit point for the wide-spread stations throughout the channel country. It was, and still is, a hard, rugged expanse which could perhaps best enjoy the typical description of a "thirsty brown land". The hill country on the outskirts of Mount Isa, where prospectors search for the bonanza, and which, when it was found, turned out to be a virtual mountain of copper. Active mining commenced in 1932, and the first signs of a vast industry began to show. Isolated from civilization, the attraction of big money brought miners to work, and then to stay, with their families to work, as the town continued its growth. Preparing for compulsory conferences aimed at settlement, representatives of unions involved. JACK DEVERAUX, HARRY PEEBLES and COL. EMERY. Another official involved, the President of the Queensland Trades and Labour Council JACK EGERTON seen here with PAT MACKIE.

Some of these sculptures are monumental 'law poles' used in important ceremonies, whilst others take an innovative look at the contemporary culture of their community. In almost all Aboriginal communities throughout Australia, dogs dominate the landscape: roaming the streets in packs and intimidating passers-by; lying in the shade, seeking respite from the midday heat; and, in the evening, seeking out an 'owner' to feed them leftovers from the day's meal. Collectively, they are known as 'camp dogs' and, in the case of Aurukun, have the language name 'ku'. The group of 'ku' sculpture exhibited in '21st century: Art in the First Decade' were produced over an extended period during 2009--10 at the Wik and Kugu Art Centre in Aurukun. As opposed to law poles, camp dogs generally belong to everyone, allowing the members of each clan to collaborate on this large-scale project.

FAQ Research Interview with Senator Larissa Waters.mov
Queensland Greens Senator Larissa Waters speaks to FAQ Research's Dr Mark Bahnisch on February 20 2012 at the anti-Coal Seam Gas action in Jondaryan. Senator Waters has introduced two bills into the federal parliament, to give farmers a right to deny access to mining companies on their land and to have water declared as a matter of national environmental significance. In the interview, Senator Waters also calls for a Senate inquiry into the full range of issues raised by Coal Seam Gas, including its social and community impacts. In the current Queensland state election campaign, The Greens' policy complements that of other non-major parties such as Bob Katter's Australian Party, calling for landholders' rights and the protection of agricultural land. Senator Waters speaks passionately about the potential impacts of CSG on the environment and on future generations.

Protest at Tarong Power Station in Queensland
On November 7, 2008, two activists locked onto a conveyor belt and forced the evacuation of Queenslands Tarong Power Station, which produces around 1400MW of the States energy. Station operator Tarong Power produces up to 25 percent of Queenslands electricity from three coal fired power stations, uses up to 7 million tons a coal a year from the companys nearby coal mine. This action was the fourth action in just seven days targeting the coal industry in Australia and calling for the phase out of coal-fired power. The action also served to highlight the risk to Queenslands world heritage icon, the Great Barrier Reef, posed by climate change. Three people were arrested.

Congratulations to Jenny and all those who were involved with The Big Ban CSG Petition. You've shown great dedication, 'occupying' the footpath outside AGL for months both to collect signatures and raise awareness! The Greens agree. We need a ban on all new CSG approvals and a transition to the safe renewable alternatives, which won't cost our land, water, rural communities, climate and Great Barrier Reef.

investment property, Australia,
http://www.investing-in-property.com.au The Surat Basin --Australia's Clean Energy Capital A wave of transformation is breathing life and economic vibrancy into regional centres across the country, with around $270bn in energy projects currently planned or underway. All of this activity in the resources sector is igniting a property boom in hub towns such as Chinchilla, Roma and Miles in the Surat Basin, and savvy property investors are set to benefit. These billion-dollar projects are designed to help meet the soaring global demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG), the emerging clean placement fuel for coal, and coal itself. This demand is coming predominantly from international export destinations in Asia, and more specifically China, which is experiencing the largest mass urbanization in history. Infrastructure hot-spotting expert Flynn De Freitas from Omega Investments predicts that over the next ten years, the number of large or tiered cities in China will increase by 37, to 143 cities of at least a million people. Clearly, international demand -- along with Australia's own domestic energy needs -- isn't expected to slow any time soon. While all of this activity is all good news for the Australian economy, it also represents an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for property investors to secure high rents and strong capital growth in one hit. De Freitas has been charting the property prospects of the Surat Basin for some time, and he believes the local real estate market offers strong returns to investors willing to take the plunge. "The unique and vital nature of the energy industry presents property investors with an opportunity to invest in Australia's new energy towns," he says. "These are towns where a social contract between the energy industry, government and local communities means that the billions of dollars in infrastructure investment by the energy industry is matched by millions of dollars in government social investment in local communities." De Freitas says these social investments makes these communities more liveable and attractive for workers within the energy industry, which ultimately ensures that property investors enjoy sustainable, long term property growth -- thereby avoiding the boom/bust risks of mining boom towns. The Surat Basin has been dubbed by some as Australia's future energy hub, with the emerging Energy Town of Chinchilla set to benefit from an impressive array of planned infrastructure projects worth billions of dollars. Two of the largest infrastructure projects in the Surat Basin are the $15bn Queensland Curtis Island Liquefied Natural Gas (QCLNG) and the $20bn Australia Pacific Liquefied Natural Gas (APLNL) projects, which have both commenced construction. They will involve a peak construction workforce of 6,500 in the Chinchilla region, dropping to a low of 1,400 over a four-year period. "The Chinchilla property market has already been richly rewarded by the energy industry, with the 2004-2006 construction 25km away of the Kogan Creek Power Station, which entailed 1,000 construction workers and 300 operational workers, virtually all located in Chinchilla," he says. "This $1.2bn energy project saw annual median property values rise by over 20% for three straight years... and contributed to the 11.9% average annual growth rate over the last 10 years to 2011." De Freitas says these phenomenal growth rates "all now look to be superseded" by the QCLNG and APLNG projects. "Given the impact of one single $1.2bn project, the next decade of growth for Chinchill's property market looks very favourable indeed."

Refugee camp through wire fence STORYLINE: A group of 100 Afghan refugees took their first steps on dry land for three weeks on Wednesday, but they were on the tiny Pacific island republic of Nauru, not Australia, their intended destination. Hundreds of locals turned up at Nauru's main port to watch the refugees ferried to land on Australian navy landing craft. As women performed traditional dances, each refugee was handed a small bunch of flowers. They were then shepherded towards six dusty school buses for the five kilometre (three mile) ride to a makeshift refugee camp built by Australian troops in Nauru's barren interior. As they approached the dock, two refugees held up a banner thanking the government of Nauru for giving protection and shelter to Afghan refugees. One refugee said the group was grateful to Nauru for taking them in after Australia closed the door on them. The Afghans were taken to Nauru on board the navy troop carrier H-M-A-S Manoora after the Australian government turned them away in a hardline stand against people smugglers who each year ship thousands of refugees to Australia. The decision sparked international condemnation but was applauded at home. All of the refugees were wearing Western-style clothes and carrying black plastic bags believed to contain the belongings they carried with them from their homes thousands of kilometres (miles) away.

Gasland Darling Downs Question Mark Introduction
Gasland Darling Downs Question Mark is a project conceived by local artist Ben Beeton www.benbeeton.com.au www.getabstractwallart.com In 2010 Ben saw a screening of the film Gasland and was horrified to realize that the environmental destruction which had happened in America, through coal mining and coal seam gas projects was now happening on the Darling Downs. In these films Ben invites scientists and local experts to share their knowledge and concerns about the very serious threat of environmental mismanagement that is facing the Darling Downs and beyond. In 2011 Ben will be investing 15% of his personal profits from the sale of work from his websites towards making new Gasland Darling Downs Question Mark films. Ben's primary interest is in creating multi-media work about the ecology, geology and deep time history of environment. Although frequently away on artist residency/tour projects Ben thinks of Toowoomba and the Darling Downs region as his home. In 2010 Ben was the artist for the Burke and Wills Environmental Expedition. www.cv.vic.gov.au/stories/burke-and-wills-the-art-of-science. Ben felt that the most effective contribution that he could make was to provide people with a scientifically informed perspective of the situation. It is Ben's hope that once equipped with this information individuals will become proactive in advocating for a moratorium on mining until a comprehensive independent scientific assessment of its long term effects on the Darling Downs and other effected regions has been conducted. The project Gasland Darling Downs Question Mark has been given a page on the save our Darling Downs website www.sodd.com.au. Ben has a range of films on You Tube including "Gondwana in Toowoomba, an exploration of Toowoomba's remnant rainforest and geology with Dr Gillian Scott and Ben Beeton", "In the Suburban desert with Peter Macqueen and Ben Beeton", The Hampton Corridor of Trees with Peter Macqueen and Ben Beeton", "On Sugarloaf Mountain with Peter Macqueen, Dr Gillian Scott and Ben Beeton", "Exploring the Helidon Hills with Peter Macqueen and Ben Beeton" and "Burke and Wills Environmental Expedition".Ben would like to thank Don Herman of Darling Downs Movie Makers Inc, Dr John Standley and the owners of www.sodd.com.au for supporting this project at its foundation stage of development.

Tar Ponds SS - Mixing hazardous waste with cement powder  Thursday September 22, 2011
Hard to believe that these workers are not wearing any masks to protect their lungs from the airborne dust and the chemicals that are coming off that site as it's mixed with this cement powder for long periods of time. 700,000 tonnes of PAH contaminated sludge in the Tar Ponds, including 50,000 tonnes of PCB contaminated sludge are being churned up and mixed with over 100,000 tonnes of cement powder, which causes an exothermic reaction heating up the mixture, driving off more contaminants into the air. It's clear to see just how much contamination is in the air from this process, not to mention all the chemicals in the air that we can't see, such as benzo(a)pyrene, naphthalene, etc. We're even warned when we buy a small bag of cement powder to wear a mask and goggles to protect our lungs and eyes from this corrosive dust. Here are these workers working on one of the largest remediation projects involving hazardous waste in Canada and they are wearing neither masks or goggles.
