Malka Leifer

Malka Leifer was the school principal of the ultra orthodox school Adass Israel.  She has been accused of sexual assaulting students.  She fled to Israel in 2008 and has been under house arrest since 2014.  Mrs Leifer has failed to appear in the Jerusalem District Court 7 times and now has her lawyers asking for the case to be adjourned for up to two years.  This is insulting to victims  and is treating the Israeli judicial system like a joke.  This woman should return to Australia, show some respects for her alleged victims, and talk to Victoria Police

Daryush Valizadeh - Return of the Kings

Daryush Valizadeh is the front man for an organisation called Return of the Kings. The dear man wants to take the Western world back hundreds of years to a time when women were subservient to men.  Some of his ideas are obnoxious including the one that all rape on private property should be legal and men should go out with women with eating disorders because they are thinner but no doubt he will attract a following.  The man is clearly an idiot, but a dangerous idiot, as there are always enough disaffected men who will listen to this rubbish.

Above the law cultures

A report by Dame Janet Smith, a retired Judge who has been leading a three-year independent investigation on behalf of the BBC into the broadcaster's practices during the years it employed Jimmy Savile from 1964 to 2007, found that there was a culture of deference to "untouchable stars" and an "above the law" attitude among members of BBC management. 

Pride March Sunday 31.1.16

SECASA, along with 190 other groups, attended Pride March on Sunday, 31st February 2016.  Here is a very staid photo of Liesl Krebs, Michelle Wald, Donovan Pill and Carolyn Worth at the march.  I have much more exciting photos but did not feel this was the appropriate venue for them.

It is always a fun event to attend as well as having the more serious purpose of making sure that the GLBTIQ communities know that SECASA is inclusive and welcomes diversity.
