On Thursday September 15 US peace activist Scott Parkin was 'removed' from Australia by the Department of Immigration based on information from the Aust. Intelligence Security Organsiastion (ASIO) that he was a 'threat to security'

But the Texan peace activist remains 'baffled' as to why he was deported and the government are not likely to tell him why because under current ASIO laws, they don't have to. Now allegations are circulating that a prominent conservative journalist received leaked information from ASIO that Scott was teaching activists to throw marbles under horses hooves and de-arrest activists in police custody.

Scott Parkin talks to Kim and Asgrr at 4ZzZ, from his refuge from Hurricane Rita in Washington. He talks about what he did while in Australia that might have made him a target for ASIO, what he thinks about what happened to him and if he intends to ever return to Australia. We also send him our love and support!

OUTRO:
Greens Senator Bob Brown is calling for police to charge those he says were responsible for leaking intelligence information about US peace activist Scott Parkin to a national newspaper.
Senator Brown is demanding to know why he was denied a briefing on the reasons for Mr Parkin's arrest and says the Government should be made accountable.

"I'll be moving in the Senate, when we return in a week's time, for an inquiry into how the Government and ASIO got it so wrong with Scott Parkin, who was under false allegations, gossip from somewhere, arrested and deported from this country on charges that are simply untrue," he said.

Senator Brown says Mr Parkin should be compensated, his visa returned, and the Prime Minister should apologise for what Senator Brown says was a grave miscarriage of justice.
