    Genocide in the suburbs

    Genocide in the suburbs

    As a child, Shannon’s dad told her that her great-grandfather was supposed to be among the first to cross the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the opening ceremony, but was robbed of the honour at the last minute by a white man in a suit. 
    When she became a professional researcher, she searched for years and years to verify the story, but couldn’t. However, she did uncover some other parts of her family history. And what she found shocked her.

    Why we let corporations act like monsters

    Why we let corporations act like monsters

    A pharmaceutical company profits from legions of addicted customers; a gambling company knowingly markets to people in debt; a hospital kills its patients.
    People who do far less damage are locked up for life, yet corporations act like horror villains and get away with no criminal penalty. 
    Why do we let them get away with it? And how do we stop them?

    Featuring: Penny Crofts, Professor at the Faculty of Law, University of Technology Sydney
