“ So folks, the Black GST is about tossing into the air an idea. Shouldn’t we consider looking around and seeing whatʼs on the horizon that might represent an opportunity to remind all Australians, and to remind the world, that injustice lingers in this country. So, scanning the landscape in the future, the Commonwealth Games represents an international event that just looks too good an opportunity to miss.”
– GARY FOLEY (SPOKEN AT BLACK GST PUBLIC MEETING #1, MELBOURNE 21/5/2005)
