Intro to Ballad of a Bulliman
The Liberal National Party has chosen 33-year-old Senior Constable Nathaniel Jones to take on the Green’s Cr Sri in the Gabba Ward, which includes Kangaroo Point, Dutton Park, South Brisbane and West End. In 2012 that same police officer arrested Uncle Kevin Veritz, a Yuggera man, for lighting a sacred fire in Musgrave Park. Jones claimed that Uncle Kevin had obstructed him in his duties. Kevin refused to allow Council Officer Scott McLoughlin to put out the sacred fire.
On 22 Oct 2014 Magistrate Callaghan later accepted evidence by Uncle Kevin that it was a sacred fire in the culture of his people. The Magistrate accepted Mr Vieritz explanation that there are two types of fires. One is a communal fire and has significance for the family and community and the other type of fire is the sacred fire around which the truth is to be spoken. It is a place for seeking help and is a place where new ideas are borne.
In response to the LNP’s selection of Snr Constable Jones to run against Councillor Sri, Ian has composed this ballad of a bulliman with apologies to Bob Dylan (See attached).
