This week: Politicians fuel `terrorist' hysteria. Reject police-state
powers!

Federal and state governments in Australia, with the support of the
capitalist press, are whipping up a "terrorist" hysteria to justify the
introduction of draconian new laws that give police and spy agencies
unprecedented power. These powers won't stop terrorism but they will be
used to crush dissent and attack ethnic and religious minorities.
