For nearly 40 years Denis Freney has been the radical political agitator par excellence, deeply involving himself in campaigns for student rights, the Labor split, the NSW Teachers' Federation, the ALP, the CPA, various trotskyist groups, anti-apartheid—including stopping the Springboks— Algerian independence through the FLN, self-management, the Vietnam war, gay lib, Aboriginal rights, East Timor and Fretilin, the Nugan Hand bank , Polish Solidarity and now the New Left Party. To a big output in Journalism and pamphleteering he has added v aluable works on the CIA's Australian connections, on Nazi terrorism in Australia and on Timor.
