A local green party Marxist opportunist who managed to get a seat in the house of representatives. Adam never did anything for Occupy Melbourne but enjoys attempting to appear to care about a range of activist causes but never actually does anything. He is the primary reason you are paying a carbon tax.
I will attempt to identify all the lies and attempt to correct them, but it is as difficult task as the picture painted is so grossly distorted.
EXCLUSIVE: OCCUPY Melbourne protesters who shut down the city and vandalised buildings have left the public with a million-dollar bill in legal fees and clean-up and other costs.
1 (Vandalized buildings? Where is the evidence of this, chalk does not count.)
Documents obtained by the Herald Sun under Freedom of Information laws reveal the public cost of protesters suing the city council, police and the State Government in legal action that ultimately failed.
2 ( Occupy Melbourne never democratically voted to be represented by Fitzroy Legal Service: Nick Carson ( a Greens Party stooge) simply announced this at a General assembly in the first week of Occupy Melbourne at City Square. Nick Carson should be held financially liable for the bills Fitzroy Legal has given to the taxpayer, he certainly attempted to profit from Occupy Melbourne and accepted no liability for his actions)
Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said he was outraged authorities had won in court, but the public still had to pay.
The City of Melbourne has paid over $554,000 to Hunt & Hunt Lawyers since 2011 after activists Sara Kerrison and James Muldoon sued, claiming the arrest and eviction of Occupy Melbourne protesters had been illegal.
3 (No one forced The City of Melbourne corporation to relentlessly harass Occupy Melbourne, who firmly believed they were acting within the law. It is also not reasonable to destroy other people’s property and then charge them for the clean- up costs. it is also not reasonable for a vexatious litigant to claim their victims are responsible for their extensive legal costs)
Council had to spend an extra $71,000 on emergency barricades and to clean up the area and remove graffiti.
4 (No one forced the illegal imprisonment of protesters or the locking up of City Square for more than a week. Similarly, no-one forced the wanton destruction of property by police)
Victoria Police’s legal bills are understood to be at least double the council’s, raising the prospect that the full bill to the public is well into seven figures.
5 (Victoria Police corporation, while acting illegally, have no right to demand their costs be met by the tax payer, furthermore no right even when acting according to statute, as they are a private corporation , not a legitimate branch of government)
When asked about the costs uncovered by the Herald Sun, Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said: “One, they took us to the Federal Court. Two, they lost.
“Three, costs were awarded against them with very little likelihood that they can pay.
“Four, the bill is $554,000 – that’s legal fees alone to the city. And they are now taking us to appeal.”
6 ( Starting a sentence with ‘And’ is pretty poor form for a professional ‘journalist’ )
The public had also footed the bill for the Occupy protesters’ failed court action.
Fitzroy Legal Service, The Human Rights Law Centre – both partly government-funded – and top barrister Ron Merkel, QC, took on the case.
7 (These parasitic incompetent law services all lined up ready to pilfer the public purse, offered poor advice, collapsed the case and then congratulated themselves on a job well done. Fitzroy Legal Service even received an award from City of Melbourne. Fitzroy Legal also attempted to steal computer equipment from Ocuppy Melboure and actually destroyed some video evidence they were entrusted with. )
Mr Muldoon and Ms Kerrison lost a Federal Court challenge last year after seeking to restrain the City of Melbourne from what they argued was unlawful conduct in regards to compliance notices issued by the council.
8 ( The extremely poor advice caused the loss of the case, the most fundamental constitutional principle, section 109 was not mentioned. Mr Muldoon ( a law student ) who used his limited and self-serving involvement in Occupy Melbourne to then offer university law lectures on the topic, strangely was told he was not a representative of Occupy Melbourne at the last hearing, leaving Ms Kerrison effectively holding the bag. This was despite both litigants seeking and receiving the blessing from a public general assembly at Occupy Melbourne to represent Occupy Melbourne in federal court. In short Muldoon (a law student from a wealthy family) should be just as liable as Kerrison, but as usual the law society looks after its own )
The court backed the police arrests.
Ms Kerrison has now filed an appeal to the Full Federal Court. She faces a potential $1 million plus legal bill from Melbourne City Council, Victoria Police and the state if she loses that.
The Occupy Melbourne group, which was part of the worldwide Occupy movement, was issued with council penalty notices after it erected tents in the City Square and two CBD gardens in November 2011.
Police clashed with demonstrators when they arrested almost 100 people after ordering them to leave.
9 ( The arrests were illegal, as you have a right to protest, and Ms Kerrison is quite within her rights to appeal such a flawed decision)
Following a WikiLeaks protest at the US consulate in October 2012, Ms Kerrison was fined $1000 without conviction on three charges including hindering and resisting police and theft of police handcuffs.
10 (Victoria Police targeted Ms Kerrison for abuse since the initial tent monster incident in december 2011: the very next day she was thrown to the asphalt when there was oncoming traffic. At the WikiLeaks protest she was snatched (from the arms of another protester) and abducted by the police for no reason, and dumped in St Kilda. The handcuffs she was accused of stealing were the handcuffs on her wrists. Police were just too incompetent to realize she slipped them off her wrists and they had gone missing, because dumping abducted activists is a deniable operation and nothing gets written down. Kerrison could easily claim the handcuffs are evidence of a crime and hers to keep until the matter is resolved in court of law)
Melbourne city Councillor Richard Foster, describing the fees as substantial, said: “I would be very guarded on expending ourselves on further proceedings.”
11 (Richard Forster is well-known political opportunist, and former lawyer for a big bank, he campaigned on MCC transparency, and once elected pushed for more secrecy, good example of the people who Occupy are against)
Ratepayers Victoria president Jack Davis said once again the public was left to pay.
12 (Occupy Melbourne, to the best of my knowledge are not demanding public money, greedy incompetent lawyers are demanding money from the public and are using Occupy Melbourne as the scapegoat for their greed. Rate payers are reminded that if they vote for incompetent narcissistic fascists they deserve what they get, a nasty surprise)
Christopher Gillett has grossly misled the public with this heavily biased corporate press release. It’s no surprise the Herald Sun is part of the Rupert Murdoch /Fox News propaganda empire.
Advice for Ms Kerrison:
Keep on appealing but you need to learn the legal principles that are being used against you. Be aware that the legal system is a façade and that the entire process is in commerce and for profit, sometimes simply wearing them down is the best solution. Be aware that the law society is the lawyers, police and judges all working together to fleece the public and the court case is a minor squabble among them to decide which of them (not you) gets paid. These minor squabbles are seldom ever interrupted unless the public get too interested or offended by the blatant injustice. Remember the horribly brutalised protesters at the S11 protest still have received no compensation.
Justice is the last thing the justice system is about, look at the giant metal mural on the country court, a woman blind to reason with the scales of commerce tilted in her favour and propped up by and reliant on force, the sword as a walking cane, this should be a clue as to what occurs in the building.
Get real advice about the law not advice from slimy back stabbing lawyers who just see you as a walking pay check and totally disposable. Just like the way Muldoon sold you out behind your back.
In an extremely unexpected announcement The Greens party leader Adam Bandt admits global warming is not real.
Basically were a Marxist party so we really want to internally rot any country that has not accepted cultural and/or economic Marxism.
The Global Warming Carbon Tax is a perfect vehicle for this, its economically destructive, it appeals to individual guilt for an imagined problem, and it covers up while mitigating a real problem, peak oil.
Furthermore the global warming scam allows us to simply ignore all other environmental problems, the ‘death of the entire planet’ line really make all other problems seem insignificant.
As you know, most of the money the Australian government has collected via global warming / carbon tax rackets has been wasted on junkets and tribunes to the higher ups in the scam, like Al Gore, the IPCC and their paid off ‘scientists’.
I goes to show how careful one must be with the media, the public are still only just learning to filter out the bullshit we feed them constantly. Global warming and the carbon tax is just one of many ploys being used on the public.
I just had to come clean eventually, I’m politician and a lawyer, I’m expected to be honest, so I’d rather admit it now and take a small reputation hit, before I get destroyed by a clever investigative journalist.
Adam closed with this famous quote.
If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.
If you have links to
occupymelbourne.org please update them to occupymelbourne.net
This is the most up to date and relevant source for all things Occupy Melbourne.
occupymelbourne.org was never responsive to requests from occupiers. It is just a personal political vehicle for a few careerists and wanna be politicians desperate to part of the system they claim to oppose.
who is behind all of this? the same protaganists as usual.
Yes these are your self styled dictators posing as the voice of Occupy Melbourne via the ‘ .org’ domain name.
A political prostitute with a face lift is still just a political prostitute.
Arctic ice has increased 60% in 1 year
In 2007 the BBC predicted there would be no more arctic ice by (northern hemisphere) summer 2013.
Looks like they were more than wrong its the complete opposite, there is even more ice than in 2012!
So in light of the glaring evidence that global warming is not real we should all ask for a carbon tax refund. Of course this would raise the inconvenient question of where did all that money go? The majority of the money went to the same people who engineered the global financial crisis. See how they like things to be global?
Feel strange right now? that’s the cognitive dissonance kicking in.
Yeah the warmers don’t like to talk about this.

The Medieval Warm Period (MWP) was a global climatic anomaly that encompassed a few centuries on either side of AD 1000, when temperatures in many parts of the world were even warmer than they are currently. The degree of warmth and associated changes in precipitation, however, varied from region to region and from time to time; and, therefore, the MWP was manifest differently in different parts of the world. How it behaved in Russia is the subject of this Summary.
In contradiction of another of Mann et al.’s contentions, Krenke and Chernavskaya went on to unequivocally state – on the basis of the results of their comprehensive study of the relevant scientific literature – that “the Medieval Warm Period and the Little…

Nick Carson has just arrived at the Free shop to try to claim credit for all the work everyone else has done.
In the past he has claimed that he goes to the free shop but we believe this the first time he has actually shown up.
Teigan Evans has been keeping the seat warm for Nick Carson for quite a while, and has even welcomed well know agent provocateurs to the free shop in the past to threaten and harass Free shop volunteers
So on the 6 month anniversary of the free shop Nick Carson wants to take over.
So if you would like to ask Nick Carson why he hijacked all the media resources from Occupy Melbourne and to this day refused to give them back, go and ask him. He’s at the corner of Collins Street and Swanston Street, Melbourne 3000 Victoria, right now.
Update: like a serial con man he is gone in a flash.
And just to clarify for the future, Nick Carson is not an organizer for the march against Monsanto occurring next week, though it’s likely he will try to hijack that too.
This could be the end of the freeshop. Demand answers from the hijackers if you want to save the free shop.
Recently the Greens in Melbourne City Council decided to do some party promotion media stunts. They got Carl Scrace to hastily make a media release stating that he wanted MCC to investigate the Occupy Melbourne City Square eviction of November 21 2011. Of course this was a media stunt because a federal court case is still ongoing, no investigation by anyone is really appropriate. It was just an opportunity for the Greens and any other political opportunist to grandstand about how 18 months later they support the Occupy Melbourne protests. Thanks for declaring your support now, you still aren’t actually helping us. We predicted this little ill conceived media stunt would simply crash and burn, and it did. But it made us rethink again how the Greens really did nothing for us and really could have done something, especially considering their claimed ideals.
Adam Bandt -Greens Federal for Melbourne.
the MCC media stunt pro investigation votes.
Dr Jackie Watt – RMIT Education PhD. ALP links.
As we can see two pro votes were from Greens , one from an opportunist, one from someone with ALP links. We’ll give Dr Jackie Watt the benefit of the doubt for now.
So there we have it, a Greens inspired media stunt to leverage media coverage of Occupy Melbourne, which they put nothing into and now are attempting to claim as their own.
Were the Greens involved from the beginning?
Right from the beginning we all wondered if there was a connection between ‘The Greens’ political party and Occupy Melbourne or even the movement as a whole. They deny it.
The first clue was Nick Carson, who made the disclaimer that he let his Greens membership lapse. The next clue was Adam Bandt (federal member for Melbourne) arriving at the City Square During the first OM camp.
The next clue was the City Square eviction. How was that a clue? Well Adam Bandt and the Greens held the balance of power in both the Senate and the House of Representatives at the time. Had they decided to make and issue of Occupy Melbourne’s rights to make a political point and demonstrate, they certainly had the power to bring down the government over the issue. Remember this was a government that was a minority government that needed alliances with 3 independents and Adam Bandt from The Greens to have the numbers to govern. Just one dissenter in their ranks was enough to make things very complex for them. Adam Bandt could have voted against them on any bill they tried to pass into law. Adam Bandt’s Green party in the Senate could have struck down two bills and caused a snap election. He was literally holding the government by the balls and just quietly moaned as they slapped against his chin.
So rather than care about our legal right to protest, the Greens turned their backs on us and just complained afterwards.
Most ironically Adam Bandt talks about his highest passions , human rights and the environment, but he allowed dozens of peaceful protestors to be brutalized in the middle of Australia’s second biggest city, he allowed 17 truck loads of their possessions to be destroyed and thrown into landfill.
Because the Greens planned to do nothing socially useful in their entire term and need to attach themselves to a populist cause, preferably something high profile and no longer existent, a martyr cause.
The Greens used Occupy Melbourne as an opportunity to find a popular cause, kill it from the inside, and then use its remains as a platform, simply put: to grandstand on our corpse. After killing it, they just needed to make sure it was completely silent or only making pro Green party murmurs. How’s that working out for you guys?
To make sure OM died the Greens got their operatives in the camp. Most never even stayed one night there, though they felt completely entitled to make decisions that affected those who did.
To make sure OM never said inconvenient things or figured out the truth, their operatives stymied debate, hijacked groups (most significantly the media group), installed politically correct language and culture.
All of the media assets were hijacked and controlled to make sure the messages could be controlled before during and after the protest in the parks.
One of the most obvious Greens operatives was Nick Carson a former greens candidate, he surrounded him self with other operatives to form a quorum to back up his position and point of view.
He hijacked the main Facebook groups putting himself and other operatives as administrators to completely control everything.
Winter 2012 they released ‘Occupy Reflects’, to whitewash themselves out of any possible guilt and to proclaim OM dead and buried.
Nick Carson was probably promised some form of political position for his efforts, but with the discovery and publication of his actions that is now unlikely.
It was relatively obvious who Nick Carson’s fellow Greens operatives were, they all have one thing in common, Marxism.
It’s well known many green movements are watermelons, Marxism disguised as environmentalism. The Greens Party in Australia are no different.
Marxism in brief.
Karl Marx’s ideas were a response to the industrial revolution, the transformation of economic systems from feudalism to capitalism. Marx’s ideas we initially successful in places like Russia and China but the as the rest of the world looked on, other disenchanted workers saw it as less desirable (less freedom, less wealth) than capitalism or feudalism. So in the 20th century Marxist ideas (second wave) were not targeted to the working class (who rejected them), but instead to second rate academics and the marginalized members of society. The biggest success of Marxism’s second wave was Feminism, Gay rights, Racial equality, Environmentalism. This is not to say they were not good things, but rather to point out these areas of academia are absolutely full of Marxist ideology.
Lets look at the Marxist greens and tie some threads together.
Criticize everything except Marxism, don’t offer a solution, because the unspoken solution is Marxism. Critical theory is a hijacking of the term critical thought. Critical thought comes from critique, whereas critical theory comes from the term criticize. Subtle distinction you might say, but a critique is a careful examination that is balanced and objective. Criticize is usually emotionally charged and unbalanced, leaving out opposing arguments.
The Greens just criticized the local council, they didn’t use their political power to stop them. 18 months later they attempted to get political/media profile out of Occupy Melbourne, hoping everyone forgot they denied all connections at the time, did nothing to help, and now care because its an election year.
*OM: many Marxists just criticized what everyone else was doing, but did nothing to help or offer a better solution.
Keep Marxist though secretly as a corner stone of all thought. Promote specific thought terminating cliches to defend Marxism. Make people think they are smart if they can recall which (thought terminating) cliche is the best to end a debate.Marxist thought absolutely pervades arts, social sciences and education departments in higher education. Marxists even created a whole language of cliches and word for things called politically correct language. The politics that was correct in this language was Marxism, but that wasn’t specifically stated. If you think you know everything about the world straight out of university, you are a fool. Much of what you learned was dogma and after leaving university you should find out what was true and what was false. Much of the education system is geared toward leveling everybody out to the same mediocre level, praise the fools and chastise the clever.
Most of the Greens candidates are educated in law, arts and education, most of them are Marxists whether they realize it or not.
*OM: While we had a education working group it largely did nothing, I think it was just there to promote thought terminating cliches and promote politically correct language.
Hijack a group of women who want a better life in capitalism and tell them they are a oppressed by the man’s system (capitalism), make them hate and wish to subjugate men.
Women: men and women are not equal, just as apples and oranges are not equal. Men and women are different but have similarities.
In some circumstances they could be treated equally. I could use either to make apple juice or orange juice. Often both are needed to make a better product, orange juice is better with an apple base. Sometimes one is never a substitute for the other, Apple pie, duck l’Orange.
This is not to say men and women shouldn’t be treated equally where it makes sense to do so.
In the siege of Stalingrad the Russians used many female snipers, some as young as 12 years old, because a rifle can be used by either gender at more or less the same difficulty, unlike the sword that came before it. The use of women in the military in Russia wasn’t so much a triumph for women’s rights, it was more a consequence of the desperation of the Russians who lost more people to world war 2 than any other country.
It wasn’t just the Russians that were keen to use women for the war effort, Women all over the world were encouraged into factories and industries where they had never been before, apart from being secretaries or eye candy. The real feminist push came in the generation following this, when women grew up with mothers who have been in wartime factories and traditionally male dominated professions, only to find their mothers’ careers were somehow off-limits to them. This also coincided with the consolidation of Marxist thought in the embryonic feminist theory being taught at universities.
But men and women should not attempt equality where it makes no sense.
Men can give birth, but does it make a lot of sense to go through all the required surgery and operations, when most women are naturally equipped to to so?
How would women feel paying a tax so men can have operations to get a uterus and give birth?
If you are a woman and you want equality that really means something in the real world, get a gun, that is a real equalizer.
Find a feminist who is not an environmentalist, pretty rare, there is no other obvious logical connection between these two ideologies other than Marxism.
Feminists if you really care about the environment stop using sanitary products containing sphagnum moss, which is harvested by destroying wetlands.
*OM: There was a feminist working group, most of the attendees were women of course, a few men went along, most sessions were apparently to complain about men doing relatively minor things that upset their sensibilities. Most of the men and some of the women attending these meeting were just trying to find women to sleep with. Interestingly they never complained about male (or female) sex predators which did exist sadly.
Lack of democracy.
Democracy sounds good and fair, people like the sound of the word, it implies fairness, Marxists subvert it where possible with bloc voting, stacking elections, forming committees, if needed Marxists find reasons for when it should be abandoned (in favor of Marxist agenda).
Find a democratic reform group that doesn’t use lots of politically correct language: Marxist infiltration.
OM: Many important decisions were made in working groups, though these groups were supposed to be open and transparent, in reality most were closed and didn’t have or release minutes. The facilitation working group was designed to help moderate debates, it was meant to be neutral but in many cases steered debate, or simply denied democracy.
Bureaucracy and cronyism.
Always have cronies and useful idiots at all levels ready to distract and deflect debate with thought terminating cliches. Always have a committee, committees are great, they appear to be a collection of experts and affected individuals making a decision, and it appears to be democratic. Nothing is further from the truth. Committees are usually stacked from the beginning, have very little knowledge of the subject they are making decisions on and are generally unaffected by the decision they make. Committees often have hidden agendas and love making rules for everyone else that they are immune from somehow.
Successful small businesses don’t have committees. Committees and boards of directors are for large inefficient dinosaurs. The communist party has a chairman, governments have committees.
OM: Working groups were often filled with cronies to stack votes and sway opinions.
Lack of transparency.
You don’t need to cover your tracks if there is no transparency in the first instance. The Greens in Australia do not allow media at their conferences, however ALP the Liberals do. Why so secretive?
If Marxism is so great, why is it hiding in so many places?
OM: General assembly minutes sometimes got lost and were sometimes altered before release. Working groups were very much closed. The most secretive were Facilitation, Media and First aid and care.
Facilitation and media should have been the most open, not the most closed. First aid and care certainly covered up at least one sexual assault, probably more.
Does anyone remember the environmental slogan of the 90’s ‘Think Globally, act locally’, it’s an example of the global aspirations of environmentalism and Marxism.
Think Marxism globally, Act Marxist locally.
OM: It was a global movement, I think about the word ‘global’ differently now.
After East Germany collapsed and was absorbed by the capitalist west, enclaves were discovered where the party elites lived, They were full of luxuries the working class could not afford to buy. Many luxuries were illegally imported products from the west that no one was permitted to posses in their glorious workers paradise. Ultimately communism in East Germany was just a dishonest version of capitalism disguised as communism to keep the workers uninformed and compliant.
Hypocrisy is a really strong trait in Marxists, they always have a reason why ‘some animals are more equal that others’.
OM: The Greens operatives almost without exception never stayed in the park from dusk till dawn. Because they were better than everyone else. A true polit bureau.
Ever heard of meteorology or climatology? You have more likely hear of climate science which is not a science at all but claims to be. The committee raises its ugly head again and claims to be an expert (wrong) or claims to have consensus (it doesn’t). Committees don’t do science and consensus is what hold back science not what advances it. The number of people who died because of their scientific idea is staggering, many people died believing outdated theories. Much of the newer paradigms in science were only adopted as truth when people literary grew up in the new paradigm with the old guard simply dying of old age. This didn’t make them right (repeatability and making correct predictions made them correct) but science is a culture and one very resistant to change. In the 90s it was called global warming, because the globe was warming in that period, in the 2000’s it was called climate change (because it was actually cooling down), there’s a big change of the goal posts right there. In the 70s scientists were terrified of a new ice age.
Global warming is not happening, humans are not a significant factor in global temperature.
Global warming, Global scam for Marxist control.
OM: Most people believed in global warming. Most people had no idea this is a massive scam. I’m not sure who’s idea it was for use to eat off plastic disposable plates and use disposable cutlery, but everything else got stolen or destroyed by the council ultimately.
One political term with Greens having some real power:
So our Green party in Australia, what have they done with their small dose of power? Installed a huge tax on everyone in Australia to sending the money offshore to unaccountable people.
If you are a big polluter you pay very little.
Corruption and cronyism: big businesses in bed with the state are protected. Some animals are more equal that other animals.
If you are small business you can’t blame your recent cost increase on carbon tax (that is an offense).
Promoting secrecy around the secret tax , the secret theft.
If you are a poor house holder you will be compensated (at least for now) for the cost addition to your expenses.
Pushing more people to welfare where they can be controlled.
Where did the tax payment really come from, more foreign debt?
More foreign debt means less control over you own country, it slowly slides into the hands of the globalist Marxists.
What went wrong?
They all underestimated a hard core who refused to give up despite the slander, insults lies and offensive behavior of Nick Carson’s Marxist Green hijacker cell.
We bled for this movement, we were harassed 24/7, we were robbed by council workers and other less organized criminals, we were assaulted and threatened by police. For most people this is enough to turn them off, but for some it meant the sunk cost was too high to just walk away, and let the parasites bleed the movement dry and use it for infecting the rest of society.
But that’s the trouble with using delusional flunkies to do your dirty work, it’s hard to get good flunkies, because flunkies are usually incompetent and stupid.
Beside every main gate there is a side door, this is that door. And the door is getting more and more traffic, so much so, it’s going to eventually be the main door.
