On this day:

Protect Ya Organs Mate

Via Tim Blair, Margo Kingston of the Sydney Morning Herald is very concerned about torture, government abuse, and your organs:
As we face the fact that our government and its organs cannot be trusted to respect the rights, or even the humanity, of innocent Australian citizens, the same government and its organs are calling for the downgrading of citizen's protections against abuse of power by the State with a view, perhaps, to the legalisation of state torture. In tandem, as we face the fact that our government and its organs make terrible errors with dire consequences for the lives of innocent citizens - and then cover them up without a qualm... [...] Citizens must TRUST the good faith of governments and their organs, and firmly believe that they will not abuse their powers because they RESPECT their own citizens.
No BLOOD for ORGANS!
