Led by Rodrigo Acuña and Adriana Navarro, Chilean-Australian community members are campaigning for the federal government to give an “unreserved apology” for Australia's covert support to the US-backed coup against Dr Salvador Allende in 1973.

 

The Australia Institute (TAI) said the federal government’s $5 billion Northern Australia Infrastructure Fund (NAIF) lacks resources and lags behind other comparable government organisations in terms of process and disclosure and in operational funding.

The government has said it would “look seriously” at using the fund to provide $1 billion to build a railway to carry coal from the controversial Adani Carmichael coalmine in Queensland to port for export and for a “clean coal” baseload power plant.
