I always thought it remarkable that Australia, without studying the Fascist political philosophy and methods, so spontaneously developed a form of Fascism peculiarly suited to the needs of the British Empire. ~ Oswald Mosley (‘New Guard Leader: Col. Campbell Welcomed in London: Australia and Fascism’, Sunday Times (Perth), March 16, 1933)
On Invasion Day this year on Yeah Nah Pasaran! we talk to Boe Spearim [Twitter]. Boe is a Gamilaraay, Kooma and Murrawarri man, radio host and podcaster who lives in Brisbane. Beginning in May 2020, Boe has been producing the Frontier War Stories podcast, which is ‘dedicated to truth-telling about a side of Australia that has been left out of the history books’. With the Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance and others, Boe is helping to organise Invasion Day rallies this year under the banner of ‘Treaty Before Voice’.
