Episode 7 covers Indigenous rights protests on Invasion Day, which were falsely demonised as “riots” in much of the media. We also look at an ongoing Indigenous rights protest in Perth – The Noongar Tent Embassy – which is standing up for Indigenous land rights. We interview Greg – an Indigenous rights activist who is part of The Noongar Tent Embassy. Other issues covered on this episode are the link between racism and Australian flags, personality over policies in the Labor leadership battle, and Bradley Manning could be sentenced to life in prison for harming no one.*

*Correction: As we discussed on episode 9, we apologise that on this episode we accidentally misinterpreted a news story and said that Bradley Manning had been sentenced to life in prison. The actual story was that his sentence will be life in prison, if he is found guilty. However, our general points on Bradley Manning and the case still stand.

This episode focuses on the concept of humane animal slaughter in Australia and beyond. We talk about Australian slaughter being exposed on Lateline and play Nick’s radio interview on this topic. We thank the Angry Hippie’s for giving us a shout out and encourage everyone to check out that podcast to stay informed and outraged! We also play Nick’s talk ‘Live Export, Humane Slaughter and Animal Rights’ from the 2011 Cruelty Free Festival – you can view the powerpoint for this talk here. ‘Karl Pilkington Makes Sense’ once again – this time on the issue of “happy” meat/animal products. We finish the podcast on a lighter note, with some political “love songs” for Valentine’s Day.
