Help Stop the Wars

Dear friends and opponents of war,

The Stop the War Collective in Brisbane is responding to US President Obama’s visit to talk war and the US-Australian alliance with Rudd in the 2nd half of March. We are planning a rally in Brisbane (details below) and to send a 54 seat bus down to Canberra to join other protesters when Obama addresses a joint sitting of Parliament.

The bus costs money, but we don’t want this to be a barrier to those who want to go down to Canberra so we are appealing to all supporters of StWC and all opponents of US-led wars for profit to give a donation to help cover bus costs.

Please send donations (big or small) to:
Stop the War Collective
PO Box 8254
QLD, 4102

Please help also by forwarding this to anyone you know who might be able to help.
