What a trip. Thats the best I can muster in terms of what Im feeling after just coming out of 30 hour performance which had me doing very little at all, for a good period of time. I heard the launch was great (literally and second hand). Thanks everyone who put in so much work into @sweetfootscrayarts particularly fellow committee members @georgiaraebanks @lauracarthew @brett_colquhoun @corinna_berndt and almost 20 exhibiting artists. The arts in Footscray is alive and well. #sweetfootscrayarts (at Footscray, Victoria, Australia)

Michael Gannon (AMA President) and the Suppression of Vaccination Science in Australia "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne"

Recently the film Vaxxed; From Cover-up to Catastrophe has been touring Australia to sell out crowds as parents discover the fraudulent science that the Australian Medical Association (AMA) is using to claim that the link between vaccines and autism is discredited.

In addition, Michael Gannon, the AMA president, stated in the media (channel 10) on 21 May 2017 that:
the Health Department was spending a lot of time disproving the quack theories about the risks of vaccines.

This statement is untrue and it is disrespectful to parents because the Health Department is ignoring the skyrocketing autism in Australian children that correlates directly with the MMR vaccine and the expanding vaccination schedule  a schedule that is not designed by the Australian government.

In my No Jab No Play rally speech in WA on 28 May 2017 I call for Michael Gannon to step down from his position with the AMA (at 31.41 mins in the speech). This is because he is dismissing parents valid concerns about vaccines as quack theories. This is contrary to evidence-based medicine and his role in promoting public health in the community.

My PhD thesis is published on the University of Wollongong (UOW) website and it describes the undone science in government vaccination policies. This lack of hard evidence is allowing governments to claim that vaccines are safe and effective instead of using definitive proof.

When Australian Doctors speak up in support of the medical literature that shows the risks of vaccines they are threatened with de-registration from their professional body. Recently Dr. John Piesse publicly supported parents who do not want to vaccinate their children. He stated:

This is a matter of principle. You have got a public health policy which is causing harm.

This doctor is now under investigation by the Australian Health Practitioners Regulatory Authority (AHPRA) instead of being allowed to debate the science. The AMA is dismissing the science as anti-vaccination instead of encouraging debate. How can public health be protected if the science showing the risk of vaccines is ignored and not included in the debate?

This is a crime against humanity if the AMA is...

Pub tongue twister.... Will Type For Food

Pub tongue twister - if you can recite it perfectly, then you clearly haven't had enough to drink.



The bald bard bawled
By the bad bard's bar
For the bald bard had brawled
With the bored bawd's bra*,
Til the big broad barman 
Barred the bard from the bar
So the bald bard bawled
By the.... blah blah blah blah. 

*Consensually.

The best Australian music festivals you dont need to leave the city for "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne"

We love a camping festival as much as the next person, but sometimes you just want to soak up a bunch of music without having to pile all your gear into a car and drive to a paddock three hours away, and would rather a short train ride.

Besides, there are plenty of great music festivals going on right in our capital cities, and its easy to overlook them as you start thinking about your next trip to Splendour or Falls.

So, weve collected two of our favourite festivals from every capital city, sticking to a couple of ground rules: were only picking festivals in capital cities (or pretty close by), and weve also tried to stick to festivals that are unique to each city as much as we can (so no Laneway, Listen Out or Gizzfest).

That said, here are some festivals that are worth visiting a whole new city for.


Brisbane Festival Brisbane

Fireworks over Brisbane

This years Brisbane Festival is bringing a huge list of talent to the city from September 9 30, with a bunch of special gigs including, among many others:

  •  A headline performance from London Grammar hot on the heels of their new album Truth Is A Beautiful Thing
  • Megan Washington giving a special performance with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra
  • Angus & Julia Stone returning to the stage after a long break with their new album SNOW
  • Melbourne hard-rockers High Tension bringing their intense set to the rock-loving Brisbane
  • Australian icons Tex, Don, and Charlie (ie. Beasts Of Bourbon, The Cruel Sea and Cold Chisel) returning for a rare show

And the list goes on, with Ali Barter, The Preatures, Regurgitator, Thelma Plum, Ngaiire, and Ed Kuepper of Aussie legends The Saints playing a bunch of their hits with his new outfit The Aints weve got a list of ten gigs you need to check out right here.

As well as all the music, therell also be a stack of comedy, theatre and art performances flooding into the city, plus some incredible displays like the closing fireworks above, so head to the website to see everything thats happening in Brisbane next month.

Brisbane Festival offers up plenty of great music next month, but also art,...
