Women who missed out in the Education System Queensland

According to Debbie Kilroy, CEO of Sisters Inside 

 ‘’ ‘A great majority of them cannot read or write. Therefore, their support needs are high and complex.’

‘’April 19 2012 Vital Funding Meeting  Prison advocacy group Sisters Inside has asked for an urgent meeting to discuss the State Government’s continued funding for the group to provide services to disadvantaged women inside Townsville Women’s Correctional Centre (TWCC).’’

Qld Government has axed Funding for a service offering support to some of the state’s most disadvantaged women.

‘’Sisters Inside had relied on $120,000-a-year in state funding to provide counselling and support services to women prisoners at the Townsville Correctional Centre, many of them indigenous.  The outreach service was set up 18 months ago after a woman committed suicide within the prison.  But the contract will not be renewed when it expires next month, as the Newman Government continues attempts to cut costs and bring the state’s Budget back into the black. ‘’

Nicola Roxon forcing internet customer records available

Australian Attorney-General Nicola Roxon has said that the public reaction to the government’s proposal to require internet service providers (ISPs) to retain customer data for up to two years has been hysterical, and that the government is asking for much less than has been claimed.

Roxon gave a speech on Tuesday stating that forcing ISPs to retain customer data for up to two years is required to ensure that law-enforcement agencies can continue to investigate crime. Reaction to Roxon’s announcement saw an unusual alliance between organisations such as Electronic Frontiers Australia (EFA), the Institute of Public Affairs, GetUp, and the Greens, all of which expressed outrage over the plan. And although the Coalition hasn’t made its position on the issue known formally, Liberal backbencher Steve Ciobo compared the proposal on Tuesday to something that would have been seen in Nazi Germany during World War II.’’

‘’Meanwhile, Australia’s wealthiest person Gina Rinehart’s appeal against an ASIC ruling to force her to lodge outstanding financial reports for her private mining company Hancock Prospecting is due for a next week appearance in the coming days.

ASIC pursued the issue after revelations emerged that Ms Rinehart’s billion-dollar resources company had not filed a report in more than two years and had also lodged each of its reports for 2006 to 2009 more than a year late.

In April ASIC rejected Ms Rinehart’s bid for an exemption to Hancock Prospecting’s reporting obligations under the Corporations Act.

Hancock Prospecting has taken the matter to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal’’

SMH tells it ‘’

Rinehart has been banging on for some time about the excessive costs of labour, tax and bureaucracy in getting mines up and running – and even blamed them as the reason that she sold almost 80 per cent of her stake in Queensland coal prospects to India’s GVK, rather than a lesser amount.
