Interview

The Grapevine: Jeff Sparrow On The Solomon Islands and Neocolonialism In The Pacific.

Walkley Award-winning writer, editor and former Breakfaster Jeff Sparrow hops on the line with Dylan and Kulja to break down the media and political response to The Solomon Islands signing a security pact with China. 

"To be honest I've found it deeply depressing the way that both major political parties and almost the entirety of the media have just, almost without thinking, lapsed into these kind of neocolonial assumptions that Australia has the right to determine what The Solomon Islands should do."
