  • This International Womens Day I'm grateful for all the incredible women in my life.
.
Andย thinking of the women Em and I lived alongside in Zimbabwe in 2017. Hard working, resilient, funny and incredibly poor. While we have necessary conversations here about women's political representation, the gender pay gap, and violence against women, I hope we also have room to remember women all over the world living in poverty who are and will be first and worst affected by climate change.

A poem by @emmaawpocock
. 
There she stands
at the roadside;
ragged skirt, bare feet.

A bag of her belongings
nestled next to her
as she clutches in her arms
a packet of cornflakes
the size of her torso,
staring at the traffic
shooting down a road
speckled with potholes,
lined with bush and goats,
homesteads and small fires,
breakdowns and roadblocks.

Hoping for a lift,
or waiting for a taxi
to take her back 
to a small mud house
somewhere down that road.
A house she has little chance 
of ever leaving.
This is her home.
Dreams constrained
by mud walls,
by the grass thatch overhead,
by the high school too far
and too expensive.

These cornflakes a kind of luxury
that mark the strain 
of rural life hidden from view.

  • Not the performance we were after. Credit to the Hurricanes tonight, they played some great rugby.
.
A big happy 82nd birthday to Quinzo. He's the heart and soul of @brumbiesrugby. Heโ€™s been there from day 1 and still runs a tight ship! We love having you around. Sorry we couldn't get you the win here in Palmerston North.
.
Disappointed to get my first yellow card in a decade and watch from the sideline for 10, but proud of the effort from the team - we'll keep working hard to get better. Thanks for all your support! Back to Canberra in the morning.

  • As William Faulkner put it, "The past is not dead. It's not even past."

"January 26 marks the date that the commodore of the First Fleet, Captain Arthur Phillip, took control of Australia for the British Crown. This was the beginning of an invasion, subsequent colonisation and attempted genocide of our people. This was the beginning of the Black War, the killing of tens of thousands of people and the oppression of the traditional owners. Over the next 230 years, culture was wounded beyond repair and languages were rendered extinct. Destruction of language and culture was done with intent.

That is what January 26 commemorates.

No other colonised country celebrates its national day on the anniversary of the day its invasion, colonisation and genocide began. At the very least, January 26 as Australia Day should be understood as disrespectful to First Nations people. When looked at less charitably, the choice of the date looks downright white supremacist." - @clairegcoleman
