Bio: An experienced somewhat jaded Social Worker committed to the principals of social justice. An anthropology masters in international participatory development supports my interest in human nature, celebrating cultural difference, improving responses to complex problems, and in not imposing predominantly western ways of thinking or doing on others with different ways to approach things. I see Palestine and the trials of Palestinians as a living suffering metaphor for abuse of power, promotion of lies and ignorance as a weapon that maintains this power. Similarly the use of a black hole where knowledge and information disappears is regularly used to obliterate truth in history. The situation of Australian Aboriginal peoples sits equally as a deep shame on humanity and that we have attempted with some success to eradicate over 50,000 years of their living culture.
