Australia: Anti-war message brought home to army

Members and supporters of the Socialist Party (Australian section of the CWI) joined with the Victorian Peace Network to hold a protest outside the outside the Army Recruiting Office in Bourke St, Melbourne on 17 January.

The purpose of the protest was to present the results and from balloting of Victorians in 16 suburbs (2 cities) over the past weeks. 87% voted against the war plans of Bush!

After running a stall outside the office to great support, four representatives went inside the Army Office with the media in tow.

When ’Chubb’ security personnel refused to accept our ballot results, one of the protesters tipped the ballot bag contents over the head of a particularly uncooperative security guard!

We were told that next week’s Melbourne Times will carry a photo and article on the protest, which will greatly help bring our anti-war campaign to a wide audience.
