Defence Legislation Amendment (Enhancement of Defence Force response to Emergencies) Bill, 2020

A Bill to enable use of foreign troops or foreign police in Australian “emergencies” is called the “Defence Legislation Amendment (Enhancement of Defence Force response to Emergencies) Bill, 2020”.

Parliament of Aust website: https://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/bd/bd2021a/21bd015

Quotes from sources:

Further the legislation includes the use of foreign military forces and foreign police to assist in “emergencies”. Surely we Australians are, with appropriate resources and organisation, capable of addressing emergencies without the need for foreign troops or foreign police. And we certainly don’t want these foreign forces confronting and suppressing legitimate protest actions by Australian citizens.
In addition the legislation provide immunity from civil or criminal prosecution to the defence forces including foreign military, for their actions in these “emergencies”.

The “grossly inadequate” Human Rights Statement “does not address public rights that may well be infringed under these provisions.” The proposed immunities would also extend to “foreign military and police forces”, suggesting more than a cheerful nod of approval to those nuclear armed allies across the pond. “The use of a foreign army or militarised police force should not be allowed at all, and certainly not without the safeguard of citizens’ rights of access to courts.”

Under the cover of stealth and reliable apathy, powers have been vested in Australia’s military and ministerial authorities with scant debate and even less scrutiny. As law academic Michael Head points out with noticeable alarm, powers calling out the Australian Defence Force to deal with, for instance, “domestic violence”, or likely dangers to “declared infrastructure” are left undefined. Vagueness bedevils the legislation, passed ostensibly to protect the populace against terrorist attacks. “Once deployed, military personnel can exercise extraordinary powers over civilians, overturning basic legal and democratic rights.”

The government insists that the bill does not authorise armed force against civilians, but there is no such protection in the legislation. https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2020/10/16/mili-o16.html

I BELIEVE there are very worrying implications in a bill being considered in federal parliament. It is called the Defence Legislation Amendment (Enhancement of Defence Force response to Emergencies) Bill, 2020. It enables the ADF and Reserves to be used in emergencies, but “emergencies” is undefined.

Bushfire assistance is one emergency which might be justified but could certain so-called disruptive industrial actions or disruptive mass climate change protests be considered emergencies? These are legitimate actions in our democracy, and I believe being confronted or suppressed by the defence forces or reserves would not be a legitimate use of these forces in a healthy democracy.

Further, the legislation includes the use of foreign military forces and foreign police to assist in emergencies. Surely we Australians are, with appropriate resources and organisation, capable of addressing emergencies without the need for foreign troops or foreign police? We certainly don’t want these foreign forces confronting and suppressing legitimate protest actions by Australian citizens.

Our political representatives in federal parliament should be urged to halt this legislation until it is closely examined by civil rights and constitutional law experts to ensure our civil and democratic rights are not under threat or our sovereignty compromised by this legislation.

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  2. This is a UN backed idea and has been in the pipeline for years. UN Military and Police Forces Will without hesitation Fire on unarmed Australian civilians. Australian Military and Police Forces are more likely to be hesitant to commit MURDER. Also the Australian Military and Police Forces Will Effectively Be Made Redundant and if they don’t follow UN orders they will be targeted like Civilians. If This Is Adopted by our Government. They will be committing TREASON and should all be DEALT WITH accordingly. NUREMBERG 2.0.

  8. Does any one remember the referendum to change the constitution? I’m sure lots will remember it. The result was very clear!
    What’s my point? Well where was the referendum to approve the Australia Act? It never happened! But asleep Aussies went along with it any way.
    In the post there is this statement,”Our political representatives in federal parliament…” ???
    “Our” indicates some kind of ownership or responsibility for.
    “in federal parliament” but our Parliament House, still standing, was abandoned for the corporate headquarters. Yes, corporate!
    The corporation registered in Washington DC, THE COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA, is not our Federal Parliament and I for one, amongst tens, perhaps 100s of thousands of Aussies absolutely sick of ignoramuses referring to the corporation as our federal parliament when it’s not and they are not our political representatives because we do not have a legitimate political system
    The name “THE COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA” is not even English. For it to be English it would have to be thus THE-COMMONWEALTH-OF-AUSTRALIA.
    Now I can hear the chorus shouting at me,”wanker!”
    Go to Blacks online law dictionary and look up the meaning of “all in capitals”.
    What’s this comment got to do with the post? See my comment above. The Defence Legislation (Enhancement of Defence response to Emergencies( Bill 2020) is Treason because we the people did not give our consent to The Australia Act, nor did we give our consent to the creation of a corporation registered in Washington DC, THE COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA. Yet that corporation is governing our Australian Commonwealth!
    If we go along with the Bill we are committing Treason against ourselves and our nation. What is the penalty for Treason?
    I vividly recall that tens of thousands of people took to the streets when Howard bypassed the Senate and sent Aussie soldiers to the illegal invasion of Iraq. So here we are with the above Bill and where are the tens of thousands protesting against it, against us being governed by a corporation?!
    Monica Smit, a young Australian, was placed in solitary confinement for 22 days allegedly for organising an anti-covid demonstration, yet we have the right to demonstrate under the state and federal laws!!!
    Why are we not out in the streets demonstrating against the proposed Bill let alone a governmental system that we did not consent to???
    If you look at the recent and ongoing demonstrations in Melbourne, look very closely, you will see foreign military attacking Australians. Literally shooting Australians in their backs! They are already here! They’ve been here since the beginning of the plandemic! The Bill is just an after thought to cover what they’ve already done!
    I lived in China for 12 years until 4 years ago. There is a mass civil disobedience involving at least 20,000 people occurring there every minute of every day against government overreach. I personally got caught up in such a demonstration of some 40,000 people there and another involving 30,000 people. Yes, it was frightening but the people won! People die in those civil upheavals fighting for their rights in a so called Communist country!
    Just recall the Hong Kong demonstrations of recent times, you saw it on TV news, people were arrested, injured, tortured, murdered, sent to notorious Chinese prisons but they didn’t give up and it’s still happening today except that our media has blocked it out to us.
    Here we are getting murdered with chemicals illegally injected into our bodies that is killing our people and what are we doing about it? Watching it on TV!

  12. I hope that this post adds something of interest re the Defence Legislation Amendment (Enhancement of Defence Force response to Emergencies) Bill, 2020

    History of the Bill:
    Mr Hawke (Assistant Defence Minister) presented a Bill for an Act to amend the law relating to the Australian Defence Force, and for related purposes into House of Representatives on 3 September 2020
    The bill finally passed both Houses – 08 Dec 2020
    And received Royal Assent on 17 December 2020
    https://parlinfo.aph.gov.au/parlInfo/search/display/display.w3p;db=CHAMBER;id=chamber%2Fvotes%2F1bb2f0ac-d07f-4623-a948-f1a5d914beea%2F0010;query=Id%3A%22chamber%2Fvotes%2F1bb2f0ac-d07f-4623-a948-f1a5d914beea%2F0000%22

    Some Standing Committee for the Scrutiny of Bills comments:
    2.30 The committee welcomes the Minister’s advice:
    – that a replacement explanatory memorandum has been tabled
    – that Reserve call out orders in relation to defence assistance to the civil community do not authorise the use of force or coercive powers
    – that similarly a protected person subject to a direction relating to assistance under subsection 123AA(2) does not have the power to use force or coercive powers
    – that this information is included in the replacement explanatory memorandum.

    2.31 The minister also advised:
    – there are numerous opportunities for Parliament to consider and debate call-out orders even if the orders are not tabled
    – the defence annual report will generally include information on significant defence assistance to the civil community.
    – the replacement explanatory memorandum clarifies that the term ‘other emergency’ takes its ordinary meaning for the purposes of the bill.
    – the range of criminal offences to which immunity from criminal liability applies is narrow
    – and is important to protect ADF members and protected persons performing their duties in good faith
    – that the immunity in proposed section 123AA does not extend to the Commonwealth as a whole
    https://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r6594

    THE CLAUSE
    123AA Immunity in relation to certain assistance

    (1) A protected person (see subsection (3)) is not subject to any liability (whether civil or criminal) in respect of anything the protected person does or omits to do, in good faith, in the performance or purported performance of the protected person’s duties, if:

    (a) the duties are in respect of the provision of assistance, by or on behalf of the ADF or the Department, to:

    (i) the Commonwealth or a State or Territory, or a Commonwealth, State or Territory authority or agency; or

    (ii) members of the community; and

    (b) the assistance is provided to prepare for a natural disaster or other emergency that is imminent, or to respond to one that is occurring or recover from one that occurred recently; and

    (c) the assistance is provided at the direction of the Minister under subsection (2).

    (2) The Minister may, in writing, direct the provision of assistance in relation to a natural disaster or other emergency if the Minister is satisfied of either or both of the following:

    (a) the nature or scale of the natural disaster or other emergency makes it necessary, for the benefit of the nation, for the Commonwealth, through use of the ADF’s or Department’s special capabilities or available resources, to provide the assistance;

    (b) the assistance is necessary for the protection of Commonwealth agencies, Commonwealth personnel or Commonwealth property.

    (3) Each of the following is a protected person:

    (a) a member of the Defence Force;

    (b) an APS employee in the Department;

    (c) a person authorised under subsection (4) to perform duties in respect of the provision of assistance mentioned in subsection (1).

    (4) The Chief of the Defence Force, or the Secretary, may, in writing, authorise a person, or each person in a class of persons, to perform duties in respect of the provision of assistance mentioned in subsection (1), if the person, or each person in the class of persons, is any of the following:

    (a) an APS employee or other employee of the Commonwealth or a Commonwealth authority or agency;

    (b) a member of the naval, military or air force of a foreign country, or a member of a foreign police force (however described).

    (5) The Minister may, in writing, delegate the Minister’s power to make a direction under subsection (2) to the Chief of the Defence Force or the Secretary.

    Note: Sections 34AA to 34A of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901 contain provisions relating to delegations.

    (6) In performing a delegated function or exercising a delegated power, the delegate must comply with any written directions of the Minister.

    (7) A direction made under subsection (2) is not a legislative instrument.

    (8) This section does not prevent assistance being provided by or on behalf of the ADF or the Department in circumstances where a direction has not been made under subsection (2).

    ABOUT:
    The REPLACEMENT EXPLANATORY MEMORANDUM. It includes:
    – The mechanism Defence uses for providing assistance in a natural disaster or other
    emergency (not requiring the use of force) is the Defence Assistance to the Civil Community
    (DACC) policy.
    – For the avoidance of doubt, references in this Bill’s provisions to assistance in relation to a natural disaster or other emergency relate only to DACC and, as a consequence, do not authorise the use of force or other coercive powers, beyond what is available to any other member of the community (such as in self-defence).
    – and providing ADF members, other Defence personnel and members of foreign forces
    with similar immunities to State and Territory emergency services personnel in
    certain cases while performing duties to support civil emergency and disaster
    preparedness, recovery and response (Schedule 2)
    – The Bill does not authorise the use of force or other coercive powers. ADF
    members providing assistance in accordance with the DACC policy are not permitted to use
    force, beyond what is available to any other member of the community (such as in selfdefence).
    https://parlinfo.aph.gov.au/parlInfo/search/display/display.w3p;page=0;query=BillId:r6594%20Recstruct:billhome

    From the Debates:

    “As a consequence, there is now a firm statement that all references in the bill’s provisions to assistance in relation to a natural disaster or other emergency relate only to Defence assistance to the civil community and thus, as a consequence, does not authorise the use force or other coercive powers. There is also a confirmation the proposed immunity provisions apply only to individual Defence members and not to the Commonwealth, so there is still an avenue for remedy should a member of the public suffer loss or damage as a result of assistance rendered by Defence. It is also explicit that immunity is not automatic for both foreign and domestic forces.”

    “What is also clear is that if defence personnel or foreign forces act in bad faith in any way
    then they would lose their immunity immediately and would be subject to prosecution under
    Australian law”.

    Importantly:
    Commonwealth of the Australian Constitution
    Section 51(vi) and the Australian States

    The defence power is set out in section 51 of the Constitution as follows:

    51 The Parliament shall, subject to this Constitution, have power to make laws for the peace, order, and good government of the Commonwealth with respect to:

    (vi) the naval and military defence of the Commonwealth and of the several States, and the control of the forces to execute and maintain the laws of the Commonwealth;
    (xxxii) the control of railways with respect to transport for the naval and military purposes of the Commonwealth;[1]

    https://classicalcapital.com/1901-plan-in-2021/

    “………..The Globalists’ 1901 Plan

    Anticipations explained that the few powerful families believing themselves entitled to rule the world (sometimes called “the thirteen families” or “the globalist cabal) fully intended to destroy completely the new “middle class” of people capable and desirous of supporting themselves. The cabal declared that intention and the goal to learn, by the year 2000, how to poison millions of “people of the abyss” so the only survivors on earth would be the ruling families and their chosen servants.

    Learning how to poison hundreds of millions – even billions – of people partly involves formulating suitably powerful poisons. Many poisons deadly to humans were already known in 1901 and more could be found or formulated. The greater challenge foreseen may have been devising schemes to get fatal dosages ingested by (or injected into) target populations capable of evading, escaping and/or retaliating………….”
