Just imagine we were simply shown video's like these as part of our standard History Education, rather than being force fed the world view we're supposed to accept?

As someone fairly well travelled, I've had my 'hang on a sec' moments before.

Not that it covers all of what this film is about, but deep down, we all have an idea about the Aboriginal plight and past injustices.

I didn't know the extent to which Australia has been used and abused by the UK and US though, in terms of utilising it as a launching platform for both abusive military campaigns and as a testing ground for nuclear weapons.

Menzies was an evil shit!

Pilger rocks!!!

I recommend all his videos. He tackles issues that aren't secrets but are generally quietly forgotten about by the Mainstream Mediaâ„¢
