The NT Anti-Discrimination Commission does a wonderful job, we’ve linked to it on this web site (down the right hand side there). There is also a link on their site to upcoming hearings: http://www.adc.nt.gov.au/decisions/Upcominghearings.htm
This particular hearing, now in the public domain, we understand harks back to a fairly long time ago and no doubt, bearing in mind who’s involved, has some very juicy stuff in there. We’re quite sure these Hearings are open to the public unless there is some definite public interest served in keeping it ‘closed’ but just to check you might like to ask the NT Anti-Discrimination Commission themselves. If it’s ‘open’ then all us teachers would do well, as would the Education Union, to come along and see what’s been happening. You never know, you might just get to see some old friends in there…..and bring a friend or two, like a journalist. There are lots out there interested in getting the truth out too.
Write it up on your calendar: JUNE 2013: Hearing – 17-21 June 2013: Ferguson v DET & Ors
Just a word to others out there who’ve had to unfortunately also had endure any of the things mentioned on this blog. WE know you are not alone, even though many of us feel like we are (that’s the way the Power Structure wants it of course because it keeps you atomized and lonely and more susceptible to bullying and intimidation). One way to redress this is to START YOUR OWN BLOG.
We’ve already put a link in the “Kill the Messenger” page but we’ll post it here again so you can download it and read it at home: https://cardfightback.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/reporters-without-borders-blogging-handbook-2009.pdf – it aims to explain some of the finer points of blogging with tips on how to stay safe if you’re posting things that might upset certain people. REMEMBER THOUGH, it would be better to use it for public interest subjects – like Cardfightback – not petty vendettas that might get you in legal hot water. Be safe and BLOG ON comrades!
**EDIT – From the Anti-Discrimination Act:
ANTI-DISCRIMINATION ACT: Hearing to be public
“The hearing of a complaint shall be in public unless the Commissioner directs otherwise.”
