Northern Territory invasion and national welfare reform

Hi all

Just in case anyone's interested, I've written a
couple of pieces on the legislation that Liberal and
ALP parliamentarians just passed, concerning the
'intervention' to Save The Children in NT -
legislation which also creates a new round of
appalling welfare reform more generally, and new forms
of surveillance and control.

Though they are in many ways just initial notes and
impressions, they do attempt to give an overview of
what is going on insofar as I can tell, and supply
details of what is happening that I hadn't known
before wading through Hansard, at least some of which
I suspect will surprise others too.

They can be found at:

Capitalists are doing everything they can get away with to break the cushion, from desperation. Under the guise of "welfare reform", we really just get service cuts.
