Schapelle Corby & Women for Schapelle












Women for Schapelle on Facebook here.

Some background here.

Schapelle's nightmare and dangerously failing health here.

Imagine your own daughter in Schapelle's position, any mother would walk over hot coals to free her - and the horrifying reality is that, until this travesty of justice is addressed, it's a terrifying reality that could affect anyone one of us, at any time.

Schapelle Corby - Announcing A New Phone & Fax Campaign Targeting Julia Gillard & Bob Carr
















Click on the above to enlarge & read.

Every single day, from now until whenever necessary, I will be calling and faxing Julia Gillard's office (contact details here), and Bob Carr's office (contact details here), until a response is forthcoming.

Gillard has already blocked my home phone - because when I call from it, I get a voicemail message saying she is "Unavailable," but when immediately I call from another, unrelated phone line, I get through straight away.

So here's a message for you Gillard, you can run - but you can't hide.

I invite others to join me - so I will now post a reminder re this action (every single day), to Schapelle's support group.

Schapelle Corby - Leading Australian Film Director/Producer/Writer Matt Norman Announces A New Production About The Cover-Up & Lies That Condemned An Innocent Woman









Announcement here.

Good on'ya Matt, it's an epic story - and by all accounts, you've got the epic talent to do it justice.  May the corrupt and criminal get what's coming to them, but more importantly, let's get an ordinary, innocent young woman home as soon as humanly possible.

Schapelle Corby - Coles, Woolworths & Dispatches From The Front Line
















Click on the pic to enlarge it.

Seems some activists spent quite a bit of time at their local shops this Saturday, a couple of hours outside Coles, and a couple of hours outside Woolworths.  They said they would have moved on if asked, except no-one asked.

I gather it was amazing, over a hundred flyers were handed out at each location, and it generated a huge amount of interest and discussion - not to mention outright disgust and outrage amongst ordinary shoppers.

Much more to come.

Here's the poster.  You can download the file to your hard drive, send it to your local Office Works store, when they'll print it out in A1 size (and laminate it), for $29.  That's the best deal I've found so far.

Schapelle Corby - A Formal Letter of Complaint to Wendy Harmer & Caroline Roessler of The Hoopla, plus Journalist Tracy Spicer
















Click on the image to enlarge & read.  Facebook site of The Hoopla here.

Watch the explosive new documentary about Schapelle HERE blowing the whistle on the corruption that jailed an innocent woman.


Dear Tracy,
I note you’re a member of The Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance - and thus bound their Code of Ethics, specifically:
  1. Report and interpret honestly, striving for accuracy, fairness and disclosure of all essential facts.  Do not suppress relevant available facts, or give distorting emphasis.  Do your utmost  to give a fair opportunity for reply.
And I also note that in your article published 27 April 2012 (in “The Hoopla”), you assert Schapelle Corby’s guilty:
Quote:
“Why does a wealthy Westerner who chose to bring drugs into a country with the death penalty (she received a 20-year sentence) deserve more compassion than an illiterate fisherman who was unaware of the consequences of his actions?”
And you also imply her sentence was “Soft” by Indonesian standards:
“Why does a wealthy Westerner who chose to bring drugs into a country with the death penalty (she received a 20-year sentence) deserve more compassion than an illiterate fisherman who was unaware of the consequences of his actions?”
Further, you overtly accuse Schapelle’s supporters of racism, and imply they do not care about the Indonesians jailed in Australia:
“There’s a strong sense of nationalism – dare I say it, racism – that underpins the ongoing push for clemency for the 34-year-old. Supporters speak of the ‘corrupt’ Indonesian legal system; how the baggage handlers are to blame; and the strain of incarceration on a young woman. They don’t doubt her innocence.”
“It is right for the Indonesian President to carefully consider her appeal for clemency. But why is this more important than the hundreds of helpless souls in our jails Is it because she’s a young white woman? Because the men look ‘different’ to us. Because their lives are fundamentally worth less than ours?”
So I’m inviting you to formally provide some “Essential facts” to the public (which you have omitted), within the next two weeks. Failing that, I will lodge a formal complaint (with The Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance), re your neglect of their Code of Ethics.
Here are those facts:
1. On the 17 Oct 2005, during a high level meeting of the NSW Crime Commission (the minutes were leaked earlier this month), cast iron evidence of Schapelle's innocence was discussed (listening device material).  This also pointed to the guilt of a criminal friend (a man named John Dunks), of corrupt NSW cop Christopher John Laycock (Dunks was also involved with corrupt baggage handlers, using the luggage of innocent passengers to ferry drugs between domestic airports).  Christopher John Laycock was jailed only this month (on various serious charges), after a 7 year delay in prosecuting him.  Further, self-confessed criminal William Moss admitted (as far back as 2005), he was also part of the plot (he was a mate of John Dunks), and had been tasked with picking up the drugs from Sydney Airport.  However, ABC Australia trashed his story, and ridiculed him (at the time), so he sued them for calling him a liar - but since the leaking of the aforementioned minutes (which fully supported William Moss’s account), ABC Australia settled with Moss, paying him tens of thousands of dollars in costs to cease his legal action against them.  
Here is the poster relating to the leaked police meeting minutes
And here is the full report, relating to the entire debacle
And here is proof of ABC Australia’s recent payment to criminal William Moss
2. The highest sentence ever handed out by Indonesia to one of their own citizens (found with a similar amount of marijuana), is just 5 years - and one Indonesian found with 161 kilos (40 times as much as Schapelle), got just 10 years.  No Indonesian has ever been executed for offences related to marijuana.  That’s according Schapelle’s Indonesian lawyer, in a fax he sent to the then Australian Prime Minister John Howard in 2005:
Further, Indonesian terrorists who hacked the heads off three kids on their way to school in 2005 got just 14 years, according to BBC news reports, and most of the Bali bombers are already free (as per Australian press reports of 2010). Also, the conditions in Australian prisons are not comparable. Indonesians jailed in Australia get good food, a hygienic environment, full (and free), medical, dental and psychiatric care - plus a large range of leisure and educational facilities.  That’s nothing like the hell Schapelle’s forced to endure.
3. People for Schapelle Corby (the primary support site for her, and the site directly related to the new documentary at www.expendable.tv - which demonstrates her innocence, and supports clemency), does not tolerate racism - and all appeals for her release, and assertions of her innocence, are based on documented facts, not bigotry.  Further, caring about Schapelle does not preclude caring about the Indonesians jailed in Australia - because (most certainly), I think their situation is entirely unjust, and most supporters of Schapelle (that I know of), share that opinion.  Their punishment is (and was), far too harsh. However, given the unpleasant choice - would you prefer to be in their place (jailed for 5 years in civilised conditions), or jailed for 20 in a violent sewer?  Who is at more urgent risk?
I look forward to your formal response within two weeks, and I will go ahead and lodge a formal complaint with your union (without further notice), if I hear nothing.
Regards, Mrs Kim Bax
And PS to Wendy Harmer and Caroline Roessler - I am also formally asking you to publish a correction and response to this article (containing the “Essential facts” you have failed to publicise), within a reasonable and timely period, regardless of Tracy Spicer’s decision  - as per the MEAA Code of Ethics.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Schapelle Corby - ABC Australia Graphically Exposed In Thousands of Book Stores All Over The World

















Click on the image to enlarge and read.
I wonder what Aunty will do when Schapelle's next book hits the stores (and on-line book sellers)?  Looks to me like their dirty knickers will be on full public view . . .
Her last book was a runaway best seller, eventually selling over 100,000 copies in the first year alone (and now translated into six languages) - so when the next one hits shelves (which I'm sure will outstrip the first), the public are in for some very big shocks . . . including Kirstin McLiesh's appalling letter of 23 March 2012.
More detailed background here and here

Schapelle Corby - A Formal Complaint to Phil Gardner, Editor of The Herald Sun
















Click on the image to enlarge and read. 
This is a formal complaint to you as Editor of The Herald Sun.  Please treat it as such.  If I've had no response or acknowledgement four weeks from to-day, I'll send you a formal reminder - and then every two weeks thereafter until I do.
On April 17 2012, you published an article about Schapelle, clearly referring to an alleged lack of "Evidence" re her innocence - quite apart from the fact (which was obviously lost on your less-than-bright writer), every legitimate system of justice in the World is based on the Presumption of Innocence, thus Schapelle should NOT have to "Prove" anything, and there wasn't a shred of evidence linking her to the drugs found in her bag - you failed to mention DIRECT evidence of her innocence, which I alerted your organisation to (in no uncertain terms), twelve days before on 5 April 2012, via this email, and the telephone calls I refer to:
Subject:  SHOCKING NEWS RE SCHAPELLE'S INNOCENCE . . .
 From:  Kim Bax
 Date:  5 April 2012 11:19:34 AM AEST
(To the Herald Sun News Desk, post my phone call of just a few minutes ago - also detailing the below, cc The Australian Press Council)
. . . which for some completely bizarre reason only known to yourselves, you don't seem to be reporting (I've also just spoken directly to your Editor's PA, and alerted her to this info) . . . Here's my blog post relating to the NSW Crime Commission meeting, at which they discussed her innocence, and hard evidence relating to the very likely culprit:
Here's the flyer:
And here's the full report:
Regards, Mrs. Kim Bax
Could you please explain this gross anomaly, and seek to correct it ASAP.  I also direct you to point 1.4 of your Professional Conduct Policy, which states:
1.4 Do not knowingly withhold or suppress essential facts.
Though I must add, that given the track record of the Australian media on this issue, as evidenced in my recent formal research questions to Dr. Margaret Simons and Mr. Jack Herman, I have every expectation you will do everything in your power to avoid referencing (in your newspaper), the information I sent you on 5 April 2012.  Never the less, it's important (as a matter of public record), this formal complaint is submitted - because when Schapelle's next book is published (which will fly off the shelves), the Australian public will never look upon the Australian press in quite the same way again.
You are burning your entire credibility as a reliable news organisation on this single issue, in an unprecedented manner.  
Regards, Kim

Schapelle Corby - Formal Questions To Dr. Margaret Simons, Director of Journalism Studies at Melbourne University, Plus Jack Herman, of The Australian Press Council



















Click on the poster above to enlarge & read.

Dear Margaret & Jack,
These are formal research questions re some (apparent), gross omissions of the Australian press, in relation to the Schapelle Corby case. Whether or not they're answered, it's needs to be on the public record they were asked - with reminders sent at appropriate intervals if necessary.
As you may (or may not), be aware, Schapelle's last book was a runaway best seller, eventually selling over 100,000 copies in the first year alone (and now translated into six languages) - so when the next one hits shelves (which I'm sure will outstrip the first), the public must know these very obvious inquiries were made, plus the results.
When I talk to my friends and acquaintances re this case, they gasp with utter horror and amazement at all the pertinent (and highly newsworthy), facts the Australian press is not reporting.  They just can't believe it - and I think that reaction would be a fairly normal one for any average, reasonably intelligent Australian.  So maybe you can elucidate and explain the problem for ordinary Australians, with the benefit of your professional expertise? In writing, for posterity . . .
In your professional opinion, why has no section of the Australian media (Fairfax, Murdoch or the ABC), reported these glaring facts, or even commenced a public investigation into them:
  • Direct evidence her boogie board bag illegally (and dangerously), travelled to Indonesia un-scanned, after the interference of corrupt insiders.
  • ABC Australia’s large payment to self-confessed criminal William Moss, so he’d stop suing them for calling him a liar in 2005 - when he publicly claimed he was involved with the pick-up of a large amount of marijuana (from Sydney Airport), on the day Schapelle flew.
  • 2007 United Nations data, proving at the time Schapelle flew, marijuana was over a 100 times cheaper in Bali (compared to Australia).
I look forward to hearing from you.
Best regards, Kim
PS - I'll email and fax reminders 4 weeks from to-day, if I hear nothing in the interim.

Schapelle Corby - A Formal Complaint Re The ABC's Continuing Failure To Report Core Fact, Faxed Directly To Their CEO, Mark Scott



















Click on the poster to enlarge and read. Printable pdf version here.
Dear Mark,
This is a formal complaint, please treat it as such.
Firstly, I wish to complain about Kirstin McLiesh's letter to me of 23 March 2012 - and secondly, I want to complain about ABC Australia's continuing failure to report other core facts of indisputable public interest and concern.
As regards Kirstin McLiesh's letter to me of 23 March 2012, she appears to be saying these facts are not "Newsworthy" enough for ABC Australia to report:
  • The shocking fact Schapelle’s boogie board bag was diverted away from the legally required x-ray screening by corrupt insiders after she checked it in (and the Government deliberately hid this information at the time of her trial) - which also meant QANTAS carried unscreened luggage to the home of the Bali bombers.
  • The equally shocking fact none of the Sydney Airport QANTAS baggage handlers who helped to import 200 kilos of cocaine into Australia in 2004 (using innocent passengers as unwitting drug mules), were ever arrested or charged.
This is patently absurd to any thinking, intelligent viewer of your channel - and Kirstin sent me that missive post my phone call to your office in September 2011, as documented by The Expendable Project here, and after my further contact with your organisation (on these same issues), in March 2012.
So Mark can you either elaborate further on WHY these blindingly dramatic facts are not "Newsworthy" enough for the ABC to report, or actually report them.
I also wish to formally complain that ABC Australia has not (at any point), reported these other salient, highly newsworthy facts either:
  • Minutes of a NSW Crime Commission meeting held in Oct 2005, containing hard evidence of Schapelle’s innocence - as documented in this flyer, this poster and this full report.
  • Your long-term legal battle with the criminal who said he was meant to pick up the marijuana found in Schapelle’s bag (from Sydney Airport). This was after ABC Australia trashed his claims, and he sued your organisation for defamation.  You also failed to report that after hard evidence supporting his facts emerged in April 2012, you paid him tens of thousands in costs, to discontinue his action.
So maybe you need to wake up to reality Mark, and rein-in your reflexive arrogance?  Schapelle's last book was a run-away best seller - how many do you think the next one will sell, and how badly will you damage the credibility of your organisation once your shameful censorship (as documented above), becomes much more widely known?  
If you would be extremely unhappy (and uncomfortable), publicly defending these gross omissions to an audience of millions, then get off of your currently inert rear end, and do something about it - because you have my absolute promise you WILL be in that position (in a relatively short time frame).
Regards, Kim

Schapelle Corby - Gillard Damned In Graphic New News Ad, Plus A Twice Weekly Appointment With Her MP's























Click on the image to enlarge & read the coming news ad.

Dear Julia,

I see you're completely ignoring the questions in this graphic half page news ad of January 2012, placed in Deborah O'Neill's local electorate. Despite many reminders, this fax to your office remains completely unacknowledged for over 11 weeks.

You're also steadfastly ignoring shocking evidence of Schapelle's innocence, just leaked in this dramatic new report of April 2012, by expendable.tv

So you know something? We're going to put it right under your nose in this graphic news ad. Needless to say, we'll choose the publication strategically, as in this most recent example.

Also, please note Schapelle's in this week's edition of New Idea Magazine again, with Mercedes her sister defiantly proclaiming her innocence - plus The Gold Coast Bulletin told around 60,000 Queenslanders all about expendable the movie on page three of their Saturday 7 April edition.

We also paid a visit to Craig Emerson's electorate office (Trade Minister), check out the photo - and distributed flyers in the Forde electorate on the way, seen here. And that's not the only place they're appearing, as they jostle top-selling women's magazines for shelf space, in some of your most marginal electorates. Then of course, the stickers are getting up close and personal everywhere.

We're also going to do a bit of afternoon camping outside selected electorate offices on a regular basis, and a few good examples come to mind immediately. Do you think the large, brilliant red and yellow poster I picked up this week would draw attention, stuck to the shop-front window? And let's not forget the T shirts and flyers. And when we pack up around 5pm, we'll be just in time to educate the local residents as they get off the train from work.

Regards, Kim

And some scathing commentary to the organisation, post their surreal letter:

Further, I guess we can just keep distributing flyers, DVD's and placing news ads in key seats (ad infinitum) - telling the Australian public all about Schapelle's unscreened luggage, the listening device material that was deliberately withheld from Schapelle's legal team (as per the 17 Oct 2005 NSWCC meeting), the criminal baggage handlers who were paid $300,000 to use innocent passengers as unwitting drug mules, and the massive loss of police weapons from Sydney Airport, and quite honestly and truthfully say the Australian Government has point blank refused to investigate - and not only that, we have that point blank refusal in writing. Nice one boys (and girls).


I'll even do up a poster for the coming country-wide exhibitions, starring your most recent letter - and it goes without saying it'll get central billing in Schapelle's next book.


Your latest missive is completely and utterly insane - an insanity clearly obvious to any person out there with more than two brain cells to rub together. Quite honestly, I don't think your outfit could get any more naked, you've surpassed yourselves. But there's one thing that really pisses me off, it's my tax dollars helping to pay for your crap.

Schapelle Corby - Staking Out The Politicians On Their Home Turf























As we found with Craig Emerson's electorate office, most pollies are located at or near busy shopping areas - so it's time to stake a few of them out, and it couldn't be simpler.

All you need is:
  • One, large (professionally produced), laminated election poster - here's a ready pdf file for your use.
  • Double sided sticky tape, to temporarily fix it to the front of their shop window.
  • Some printed T Shirts with a logo like this.
  • Some portable, light-weight camping chairs.
  • Flyers to hand out out (printed in fast draft, black & white for speed & economy), and maybe some burnt DVD's.
  • A camera to record the action.
And away you go . . . to top it off, some pollies are located near commuter rail stations, so as you pack up and wave them goodbye around 5pm, you can let their office know you're off to spread the message to the locals coming home from work.

And if they ask you to leave? Simple, tell them you'll be packing up around 4.30pm/5pm anyway - but if they want to call the police, you'll be more than happy to peacefully pack up and go as soon as they arrive, just after you've formally reported this crime to them.

Schapelle Corby - Diary of An Activist



























As you can see from the above shot, the printer and DVD burner have had a very good work out to-day (in preparation for some serious street action advertising expendable), much more coming tomorrow, and over the next few days.

Then this morning, I had to visit my local ANZ Bank, and the local Bank of Queensland - and after concluding my business (and a short, pleasant chat), I gave the ladies who served me a leaflet. I also handed them out to the two tradesmen who were doing a bit of work on our driveway to-day.

Then I did a bit of late night shopping at the Logan Hyperdome (in Forde), and handed out quite a few business cards. Everyone was pleasant, receptive and showed interest.

I gave one to the waitress who served our meal, and one to the young woman who took our money. She was thrilled, said she knew one of Schapelle's brothers - and always knew Schapelle was innocent.

I gave one to the young man in Big W who helped me buy the right blank DVD's (for some more burning and printing) - I got another pack of a hundred. Then I gave the check-out girl a card too.

I bought items in about five more stores, each time flicking the shop staff a business card when I paid the bill.

Lastly, hubby and I had a drink at The Coffee Club before went home - so the waitress there got a card as well, and I gave out another one when I parted with our cash.

It's just soooooo easy.

And when I got home, I posted 51 short, sharp headlines about Schapelle to 51 large Australian Facebook pages from this growing list.

Quite a fruitful day . . .

Schapelle Corby & Using Business Cards To Spread The Message When You're Shopping




















I've just printed out 20 simple, black & white business cards (they're more economic than colour), and popped them in my purse - so every time I have to pay for something when I'm out shopping (and thus reach for the plastic), I can give one to the cashier as an afterthought.

I'll just print out some more (and re-load my purse), when I run low.

You can download the ready-to-use format here - and here's the printing product I used, though I guess any office supply shop sells suitable blank cards.

They're also quick, handy and convenient to pass out to family and friends when you meet up.

Schapelle Corby & Reaching Over 10 Million Australian Facebook Users Is Not Hard























Click on the image to enlarge & read.

Around half the Australian population is connected to Facebook - or in other words, 10,888,82 of them - and I've just posted 51 varied, very brief, but (most importantly) attention-grabbing headlines about Schapelle to around 1,275,000 Aussie subscribers, via 51 large, Australian Facebook groups (with a reach of around 1,275,000 "Fans" in total).

Here's the 51 different headlines you can easily download for your own use - as Facebook detects (and tends to block), repeated posting of the same words. And as can be seen in this graphic example, the brevity lets anyone see the whole message, without opening it up any further.

A growing list of significant, Australian Facebook sites is here if you want to use it - though it's just as easy to randomly jump from one group to next, via the other "Liked" groups on each page.

Happy posting - and from now on, I'll be broadcasting the message to over 1 million changing Facebook users a day, as I continually come across new groups (as described above). Imagine what thousands of us can do . . .
