Shame! Labor Party leaders back Canberra's police-state laws
<http://www.greenleft.org.au/back/2005/648/648p24.htm>

In the face of growing criticism from lawyers, civil liberties groups and

laws, Prime Minister John Howard and the Labor governments in NSW and
Victoria stage-managed

imminent'' terrorist incident in Australia. [Full article]

workers pay and conditions. Green Left Weekly?s Liam Mitchell reveals
the truth. [Full article]
