Our Sydney Community Event
My last article on what appears to be a distinct increase in deaths in people with dementia in mid-2021, generated a lot of interest. I am grateful for new subscribers. The article was about a vulnerable sector of our community. This article is about another vulnerable sector of the community, or rather about the people who dedicate themselves to helping those in the community who are left behind.
We are having a function in Sydney at the end of April (Sat April 29) to bring community together. At the same time, it will raise some funds for the work of one fellow in particular, Father David Smith.
For the overseas readers while you won’t be able to join us, I think you’ll find some interest in this Australian story.
I am grateful for the comments to the previous article. There are two stories in particular which are heart-breaking. One is of an elderly person in a nursing home being vaccinated when instructions from the family were not to and that person dying the next day. More data has been analysed and there will be follow upon this subject in upcoming articles.
Here is a short, five-minute, promotional video made about the event.
And just in case, also found on bitchute here.

The aim of the event is a fun night. A lot of new friendships have been built over the last three years in the face of adversity. There will be a couple of talks by Father Dave Smith and Professor Gigi Foster. Three course meal, drinks and dancing. There will be raffles with prizes donated by supportive businesses.

Background to the Event and Father Dave
Father Dave Smith has taken on numerous causes, many that have not suited the mainstream narrative and have been detrimental to his career.
He became an Anglican minister and worked with disadvantaged youth in the inner west of Sydney during times when heroin was a big problem. He worked with mainly young people to get them back on track. One of his things is using physical training and boxing as part of the rehabilitation. He is affectionately known as “Fighting Father Dave”.
For a detailed background this TV special was made on the ABC some years ago.
He has been a vocal supporter for Julian Assange. This is Dave recently with Julian’s father, John Shipton.
During the harsh lockdowns some parts of Sydney (lower socioeconomic areas) were being harshly locked down while wealthier areas were not. Dave went out into the streets in those disadvantaged areas and so the police fined him. Around the time of the start of lockdowns his parish was taken away from him, which basically left him with no income to continue his work.
This is a short talk by Father Dave after one of the rallies in Sydney He talks about the number of suicides he had first hand knowledge of occurring during the lockdowns. A clip from this is also in the function video linked above.
A part of Father Dave’s mission is a bush camp, called Binacrombi, a few hours outside of Sydney. At the time he was dealing with drug issues on the streets of inner city Sydney, he found that it helped to get some people out of the city and away from the influences that led to their problems. With the support of generous people he purchased a property called Binacrombi.
Unfortunately the pandemic has led to many programs that support the mental health, of those in need, lacking funding.
My wife Lena and I recently spent a weekend out at Binacrombi and you can feel the spirit of the place. The site also has indigenous significance. I have one story from that weekend I’d like to relate.
Father Dave runs an online church service every Sunday at noon Sydney time.
A few people join in from overseas. After the service there is a chat over skype and I was listening in to a discussion that came about with four people who work with a sector of the population that many of us have little to do with.
In the discussion were a police officer in the USA, a former parole officer, the other two church ministers.
The police officer was telling a story about an incident that had happened in the last week. They had to attend a house where a baby had died. Basically, fentanyl was being used and the baby died through incidental inhalation. The people in the house were such that they had no concept of the gravity of what had happened. This had shaken the police officer. The discussion with the others in the chat who had all had to deal with challenging situations, basically brought about through drug use, had a big impact on me. The empathy they showed each other was inspiring.
It made me realise that most of us never have to deal directly with such situations, but we are fortunate because there are people who dedicate their life to trying to work with others that many might think are not worth it.
So we need to support these people both emotionally and financially if possible.
Professor Gigi Foster
We are pleased to have Gigi Foster, Professor of Economics from the University of New South Wales, speak at the event. She has been one of the few academics in Australia speaking out about the harms of lockdowns.
I have previously written about Professor Gigi when we became aware of her from an interview on the Epoch Times.
See the intro bit from 0:00 to 0:44.
In May 2022 she appeared on the mainstream public broadcaster ABC news show called Q&A. She said what she thought and the “stunned mullet” looks (Australian expression) on the faces of the men in suits is priceless.
You must listen to the bit from 11:25 till end (which is also included in the promo video).
She toured with Professor Jay Battacharya when he was out here in Australia last year. This is an extract from a longer video of one of the interviews.
From 7:21 till 8:19 is good. See also 17:45 to 20:30 in the Brisbane Dialogues for her thoughts on the current situation.
Fire and Rescue Mandates
Finally, one of our good friends from the Australian Firefighters Alliance, Steve McDonald, will say something at the event. It is now 17 months since the NSW Fire+Rescue firefighters were stood down due to vaccine mandates and they have been out of work. They are one of the few groups that are still subject to the useless, stupid mandates which never had any scientific basis. Maybe by the end of next month there will be good news.
We have a lot to be ashamed of in our country but at the same time we have some great people we can be proud of.
We hope to see you there.
The event promotional video was made by friend “Springwater Greg”.
He has tirelessly documented in video the numerous rallies in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne. His bitchute page linking many videos is here.
