We received the following message from the NZ ambassador in Stockholm:
"I would like to inform you that, as of last Friday 25 October, the responsibility for NZ’s diplomatic relationship with Denmark has shifted from the New Zealand Embassy in The Hague to the New Zealand Embassy in Stockholm. We are now responsible for all the Nordic countries."

Behrouz Boochani

The Kurdish-Iranian author, journalist and activist Behrouz Boochani has had a mention in the Danish newspaper "Information"´s book section (16 August 2019). He wrote his book "No Friend but the Mountains" from his incarceration on Manus. Painstakingly sent via messages from his mobile phone to his friend who translated it to English, it won the Victorian Prize for Literature. He couldn't come to the ceremony as he wasn't allowed to enter Australia. The news comes up now, as he has now also won the National Biography Award. He made his thank you speech via mobile phone, where he amongst other things said that history will condemn this generation, and it will condemn us all in this hard and dark period in Australia's history. Information in English can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behrouz_Boochani

NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS

I wonder how many of you were lucky enough to hear Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds at the Arena on Friday? I was thinking afterwards that we should have arranged to meet up afterwards. Remember that members can also post on our website if you should have other good ideas in the future.

Australia's New State?

Reliable sources have informed us that secret negotiations have been taking place between Australia and New Zealand discussing the possibility of uniting the two countries. The hoped for date for this is the symbolically important Anzac Day, 2020. To placate Kiwis who feel they're being eaten up by their larger brother, the suggested new flag for the combined country is the NZ flag.
