  1. Immigration Nation: The Secret History of Us will be aired tonight at 8.30PM (AEST) on SBS Two By the 1960s, a new generation were questioning Australia's racist immigration policies and the exclusion of our Asian neighbours. The staged kidnap of a six-year-old Indian-Fijian girl exposed the injustice of the system, but it took the Vietnam War and a humanitarian crisis to force the country to banish the ideal of a White Australia once and for all and sow the seeds for the immigration nation we live in today.
  2. Australia Immigration Nation Premieres on SBS 8.30pm EST 9 January. For related stories from "The Australian" click here. Previews click here. Interesting reactions already from the noisy "Tea Bag" like minority claiming it is anti white propaganda, and those who can't decide whether it is, like all immigration, a leftist or capitalist conspiracy...... so much for Australians being more "relaxed and comfortable" about themselves (former PM John Winston Howard) :wacko:
  3. Australia Immigration Nation SBS Documentary January 2011 We appreciate our immigrants — if they earn it. Despite past successes, attitudes towards new Australians remain contradictory. WE used to have the dagos and the wogs. Then it was the slopes and the slanty-eyeds, the yellows, the balts and the Lebs and the curry-munchers. And more recently it has been the towel-heads and the terrorists infiltrating Australia and undermining our way of life. If there is a lesson in the past half-century or so of migration, it’s that new arrivals can expect a withering initiation. The nicknames may change, and so too the migrant groups subjected to suspicion, derision and worse, but the fear that drives such insults is persistent and widespread…. …Australian society has been supple enough to adapt to wave after wave of migration in the 65 years since World War II, and by and large we like the society we’ve created. So, although there are myriad concerns about how future immigration might threaten our society, our history says we have reason to be confident. We are nothing if not champions of change. New Series: January 9, 2011 on SBS One “Immigration Nation The Secret History of Us”.

  5. The happier people are, the more likely they are to give time or money to charity, the largest ever study into global charitable behaviour suggests. The survey - conducted by the UK's Charities Aid Foundation - suggests that well-being is a more reliable indicator of philanthropy than wealth. The survey took place in 153 countries, covering 95% of the world's population. The "World Giving Index" placed Australia and New Zealand joint top, with the US in fifth and the UK eighth. The index aims to analyse global generosity in giving money, time as a volunteer or helping a stranger. Researchers from Gallup found that predictably some of the richer countries with strong histories of philanthropy come out top, such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the Republic of Ireland.
