  • 'Extinct' Tasmanian tiger might have fooled the world

    Scientists in northern Australia are preparing to hunt for the Tasmanian tiger following a series of "sightings" of the species, which was declared extinct when what was believed to be the last one died in a zoo in 1936. The scientists plan to set up more than 50 camera traps to try to spot the so-called tiger, actually a thylacine, in Cape York, a peninsula in the country's north-east corner. There have been two apparently credible sightings in the region, including one by Brian Hobbs, a former tourism operator who said this month that he had spotted a family of the animals in 1983. Patrick Shears, a former ranger who also claims to have seen a tiger, said local Aborigines reported regularly spotting the creature.

    Helen Zille's praise of colonialism is an expression of a fundamental belief by an arrogant and representative white mind. Its roots go back to the colonialists who settled in South Africa under the pretence that they were here to civilise barbaric natives. Zille adduces modern infrastructure as evidence of the benevolence of colonialism. The idea is to polish and give colonialism a new glossy look. This is meant to erase the memory of black people, to make us forget that it is Zille's very same colonialism that facilitated the grand-scale land dispossession of Africans. Today black people live like sardines in shacks and townships because of Zille's colonialism and apartheid. Today white people
