Letter To Marcia Langton from Spyros Peter Goudas
Hello dear Marcia;
Having been dedicated to my mission practically 24 hours a day, I have been rushed off my feet with activities that occupy a good chunk of my time and consequently, until recently.
I did not have the opportunity to watch the documentary entitled: “The Secret Country” by one of the greatest journalists in the world, Mr. John Richard Pilger whom I expressed my worries for his safety in my article about Cambodia.
I am usually on track with his documentaries, and will never forgive myself for this delay.
In 1967 at the age 25, as an Aircraft Engineer, prior to landing in Canada from Greece, I was also invited to emigrate in South Africa or Australia, (BIO) a country that was presented to me back then as a great nation, through the conspiracy of silence.While going through severe personal struggles,
I stand behind the creation and development of 1250 international food products, without not even one single A1 Food recall from the (CFIA) Canadian Food Inspection Agency in the course of 45 years.
in addition to 98% score from Walmart in quality control and incidentally, giving back to both the
local and international communities has been consistently a top priority for me.
Despite the fact that my time does not allow it, I managed to write several articles,
books more than 500 recipes and over 150 biographies that inspire, motivate my readers
and compel them to deep reflections on the world around them.
This documentary of Mr. John Richard Pilger goes beyond the well-worth-watch status.
The historical records, as well as the realities exposed, are distressing.
It deserves an Academy Awards and you can be proud of your active contributions to it.
First, allow me to say that you are a beautiful soul, something extraordinary.
As I watched the first documentary entitled “The First Australian Fight Back” I was saddened with your deep disconcert, your fury, your frustrations, and aggravations as I focused on the expressions of your face, lips movement, and the terrible pain, which is obvious by the look into your eyes.
After watching several subsequent documentaries, you have unmistakably aged very gracefully and have successfully challenged the white invaders to meet you where you are, to heartbreakingly “wear your shoes and many hats” so to speak.
How could we so-called humans, dared to be this cruel with impunity???
How could we, unless we are barbarian monsters???
I have repeatedly watched this documentary and others in disbelief in order to really understand every word and their meanings.
Even with great effort, we learn to communicate in one language while your people without resources, learned at least six different ones.
It felt as though, some evil, and cold-blooded savage, they walked into my home without knocking, torturing and killing each and every member of my family in the most despicable way, declared the house as vacant so that they can take possession of the home that I built with my hands and have habited for years, and this has not stopped even in recent dates.
It has taken a different shape of modern oppressions while the international community is sitting around and not pushing for reparations perhaps due to a lack of awareness. The pain and the bleeding have not stopped, and I felt it.
The scars in your souls has not faded; and No - Nothing in existence can compensate for strapping up a man’s arms behind his back, followed by cold-blooded removal of his genitals and watching him screaming and slowly bleed to death while viciously raping his wife or daughters and introducing sharp objects in their vaginas and watch them die.
No - Nothing can ever compensate the damages of repeatedly testing and experimenting atomic bombs over Maralinga - Tjarutja areas where innocent natives and their children reside caused disease and death.
The local people called 'puyu' or 'black mist',
Those “fortunate” ones that remain alive must live with these wounds while they are
disfigured and suffer blindness for life.
“An eye for an eye”. “Genitals for genitals”!
Dear Marcia, I am begging you deeply in my heart to really clarify the disgust of your people towards all whites but concentrate only on the nations that had oppressed you.
They are forever indebted.
They must be held to account and suffer losses and damages!
Your account will be featured in many books and articles for years to come.
You will be remembered forever.
I believe that you should consider a leading political position for your nation in Australia.
Even though I am far away, I will do everything I can to promote your mission.
With an exceptional 40000 + years in existence, you are a sovereign nation and as such, you should run for presidential office.
Your country lives, and heritage was almost wiped out.
They have been and continue using your people as commodities and resources while building their privileges and comfort on the blood and deaths of your people.
We need to see this reparation in an immediate future.
This was and continues to be a crime against humanity and it needs to be resolved immediately.
What an ugly and horrifying past!
In the meantime, the rest of the world dint not know anything about.
This dark secret dehumanizes and brings absolute shame on Australia and its flag.
The time for reparation is overdue. Let’s get it done so we can move on to better days!
With a Slogan * MLFP *: Marcia Langton for President!
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion.
Hate is learned, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
A man who takes away another man’s freedom is a prisoner of hatred; he is locked behind the bars of prejudice and narrow-mindedness.
I am not truly free if I am taking away someone else’s freedom, just as surely as I am not free when my freedom is taken from me.
The oppressed and the oppressor alike are both robbed of their humanity.” Long Walk to Freedom

David Lee2 years ago Thank you for creating and sharing this movie, John. I knew the basics of the injustices visited upon the aboriginal populations of Australia but this strong film enriched my understanding immeasurably.
Giovanni Libero1 year ago I didn't know anything about this horror the aborigines were forced to live, and even worse, I didn't know it goes till this days. I didn't know how much the Australian government is rotten. Good documentary, it should be shown in schools. People should be educated about this
Gabi Caperri2 years ago Thank you for sharing your work with us. I've watched most of your excellent documentaries, shared them with my dear ones, and I also bought your last two books. In fact, I wrote an essay about you (Latin American magazine, Argentina), because my people certainly get to know about your work. I admire your courage very much.
I would dope the water up so that they were sterile and would breed themselves out in the future, and that would solve the problem."
