Queensland police reject Senator Fraser Anning’s ‘African gang’ claims


Loading

“We have seen violent assaults and carjackings by African criminals in Annerley, Rocklea, Yeronga and Greenslopes,” senator Anning said.

But Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said there was no African gang problem in the state.

“The Police Commissioner (Ian Stewart) has advised me that there are no such types of instances happening here in Queensland,” she said.

“He [Anning] is wrong, pure and simple.

“We actually believe here in tolerance and respect. We believe in a harmonious, multicultural Queensland and a multicultural Australia.”

Politicians from both sides of the political spectrum on Sunday criticised Senator Anning’s presence at the rally, where some attendees were seen making Nazi salutes.

Dear Editor:

The Caribbean Guyana Institute for Democracy (CGID) reiterates to all Guyanese and the international community that the Dec. 21, 2018 no confidence vote against the APNU+AFC coalition government of Guyana was unconstitutional. The vote violated several provisions of extant law. The coalition government must embrace all aspects of the constitution as well as the will of the people as expressed in the 2015 elections. Consequently, we call on the government to reject the invocation of Article 106 (6) and (7) of the Guyana constitution by the Parliament of Guyana. This is why the vote was unconstitutional:

(i) AFC government Member of Parliament (MP) Charrandas Persaud who voted with the opposition PPP for the…

Kouliably represented France at under-20 level but he opted to represent the Lions of Teranga in 2015.

Letter: Urgent call to all Caribbean nations to condemn and reject continuation of Dutch colonialism in the region


Dear Sir:

We herewith would like to bring attention to an urgent emerging undemocratic development in the Southern Caribbean. On November 20, 2018, the illegally deposed government of St Eustatius will be in court of first instance in St Maarten against the Dutch government to plead and fight for their fundamental democratic and inalienable right to a full measure of self-government according to the Charter of the United Nations.

Earlier this year, in February, the Dutch government, headed by the new Dutch State-Secretary of Kingdom Relations, Mr Knops, a experienced ex-military lieutenant colonel who was active in the Iraq War, through an undemocratic decision and action by the Dutch parliament landed with 40 policemen and a navy vessel in the harbour of St Eustatius….
