DISCLAIMER: This article is NOT an advertisement for "black salve", nor should it be construed as promoting the use of "black salve".

We tend to believe that in Australia, despite excessive taxation, nanny state legislation, over-regulation and a spiralling cost of living, we at least have free speech, right?

At least we are not like China where the government has a list of banned topics that cannot be discussed publicly, right?

Wrong!

Our government, via a maze of bureaucracies, can and does prohibit discussion, even in a purely journalistic way, about alternative health products and therapies which are not "approved" by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). TGA (the equivalent of the FDA in the US) has wide ranging powers to prevent the sale, advertising and apparently even the discussion of non-approved health products, one of which is the purported cancer cure known as "black salve".

My guest today in the 2nd hour is Leon Pittard, host of Fair Dinkum Radio, who has been served with a complaint from the TGA due to an interview he conducted with Meryl Dorey, Director of the Australian Vaccination Network (AVN), a non-profit organisation which helps people make informed decisions about vaccines.

The AVN has been targeted for several years by pro-vaccine lobbyists whose website, "Stop the AVN", declares that "the anti-vaccination propaganda issued by the AVN and its President, Meryl Dorey, is a menace to public health". This group has been behind complaints against the AVN which were upheld by another government organisation, the "Health Care Complaints Commission" (HCCC).

More recently, the AVN was ordered to stop selling a DVD titled One Answer to Cancer, which promotes the use of a herbal remedy known as "black salve". Despite complying with the demand to remove the DVD from sale on their website, the AVN and Leon Pittard are now being harassed simply for talking about the subject during an interview on Fair Dinkum Radio on on 5 May 2012.

Leon Pittard has documented the entire saga in his article and press release, "Australian thought police target free speech".

Next week we will be interviewing Meryl Dorey to get her perspective on this deeply troubling chain of events.

I thought SEO was obsolete until I met websem. They gave me a detailed web
design concept and an extensive digital marketing plan, yet I still
couldn’t believe the results when I saw them. It was like planting a tree
and watching it grow right before your eyes! Now I look and feel like I
deserve that 73% increase in sales!

I was once an keen follower of Truth News, and was in the process of arranging to make regular financial contributions…but the show appears to be no longer consistent, nor able, for some reason, to keep up with events and current affairs. Once you could set your clock to the weekly program,  but now you can’t. Its been almost six weeks since the last broadcast, important events are happening in the world every day which are ignored. If the show was more consistent and we weren’t bombarded with U.S. advertisements (that have no relevance to Australians and are clearly there as punishment for those who have not financially contributed) I’m sure the show’s popularity would increase. But if it continues on its present trajectory, I fear it is doomed.  Such a pity.

Hello truth news still a excellent presentation of varied subjects best hopes for the future also just like a request for further topics on national standards economics and production of industrial equipment and basic infrastructure that reflects our nation state and is it possible too have a central kind of hub for governance the current system is based on majority international free trade and capitalism the resources of this land should be controlled from a national level for the people.

I ahve seen the film “The Greatest Story Never Told” ‘bout Adolf Hitler and it’s stunning. We should probably wave a flag because it might change your perception of WWII.

Hello Hereward,
I have listened to this interview on many occasions and always become extremely irritable at the derogatory comments made by the ABC ‘re’ Andrew Wakefield.
I thus refer you and your listeners to a fabulous interview with Dr Wakefield, where he dismantles all the baseless allegations against him.  Sadly, it will never find the light of day on commercial media outlets.  Please share it as widely as possible with friends, family & associates. Just paste the following into your search engine:

Re first hour that I have just enjoyed listening to.  Hereward Fenton’s wrap-up of diverse reported facts on the recent spate of unexplained airline disasters is a gripping tale. His integration of these facts into speculation about repercussions leading to a push for new pilotless technology (elimination of ‘human error’) is interesting IMO, but where will it all lead?  Such questions are valid reflection, not ‘conspiracy theory’.  Mainstream media don’t want ordinary people to reflect too deeply and so try to nip this in the bud through their mantra of “conspiracy theory”.  My subscription to TNRA is well worth it, because I am receiving a good “reflection service” by a commentator who is able to think the unthinkable unlike most people pacified by escapist free to air TV.  And the most unthinkable event in our lives to date is that 9-11 was an orchestrated event engineered by secret and unaccountable government agencies for obvious political and military purposes. Like, fascism.  Mainstream media won’t even entertain that thought!  But, to quote Aristotle, “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it”.  And another quote from Aristotle for you Hereward.  It is about the human capacity for reflection, that you possess in abundance.  I remember learning of Aristotle’s idea that the most noble thing a man (as in hu-man) could do, was to reflect.  I think it comes from this of his quotes “The ultimate value of life depends on awareness and the power of contemplation rather than mere survival”.  I get paid for provision of ‘engineering services’ but this robs me of time for researching and reflecting on news stories like the ones on which you comment here. So I am very happy to subscribe. You are providing ‘reflection services’ and that is a noble profession in which you excel. thanks for the show!
