990202** Don Dunstan - We Intervene or we Sink

The Howard government is a little more than a year into its first term but already the warning bells are ringing. Hard fought rights for Aboriginal Australians, gays and women are being threatened by the conservative push to return Australian society to some mythic 1950's ideal. What do we do? Don Dunstan argues there is only one option. We intervene or we sink. In this inaugral Gough Whitlam lecture Don Dunstan argues there is no time to lose because if we hesitate, we all lose.

Don Dunstan was one of most charismatic, courageous and progressive Australian politicians of the 20th century. He was South Australian Premier for 11 years during the late '60s and 1970s. He pushed through a raft of legislation during his Premiership including the first Sex Discrimination Act in 1975. He strengthened the 1966 SA Race Discrimination Act in 1976. Don Dunstan was a leader ahead of his time. He passed away from throat cancer on February 6th 1999. This address, recorded by 5UV on the 21st April 1998, was among the last in his public life.
