Saturday July 23rd rally in Albany WA for justice for Rex Bellotti Junior

If I was driving on the wrong side of the road and I ran down a person who potentially had a sporting career in front of them and severely injured them, I'd be in big, big trouble. But if the driver is a police officer, and the victim is Aboriginal and male and a youth.....

It appears that the shocking and shameful story of what happened to the young footballer Rex Bellotti Junior is another horror story that wasn't covered by The West Australian, WA's daily newspaper, while this story was covered by The Sunday Times. The West Australian also appears to have failed to report on the shocking failure of ethics during the 2004 Curtin University study of the ADHD drug Strattera. Back in the 1990s when the archaeologist David Rindos was being persecuted by his employer, WA's most prestigious university, the University of Western Australia (UWA), because he investigated many bad things that had been happening there, he got support from The Sunday Times, a mere Sunday paper, while The West Australian gave the story little coverage until it took a pro-UWA position. It is such a pity that the people of Western Australia, many living in one of the world's most isolated capital cities, have had to suffer for so many years because they have only one daily newspaper that is crap.

The Bellotti Support Group have organized a public rally in Albany WA on Saturday, July 23. Please show your support.
