We will still be doing our weekly rally/vigil in King Georges Square this Thursday (18 July 2013) at 4-5:30 pm. If you have been thinking of coming along, now would be a great time to step in while other folks are up north (see below). Family commitments are also keeping me away again this week, but I can provide some signs if anyone wants to pick them up from me in Cannon Hill tomorrow.
Bradley Manning’s show trial is now entering its final phases, with doubts cast on the prosecution’s ability to prove the ludicrous charge of “aiding the enemy”. For regular updates on all things to do with Bradley Manning, WikiLeaks, Assange and Snowden, I suggest bookmarking this great site:
ROCKY ROAD TO PEACE
A bunch of Brisbane activists are up in Rockhampton this week protesting the $50m+ Talisman Sabre “war games” with our US overlords. If you saw US Iraq War vet Vince Emmanuele in Brisbane last Friday (and even if you didn’t) here he is on the streets of Rocky yesterday, appealing for peace to the ADF and US soldiers:
Here’s Peace Bus activist Graeme Dunstan in the Rocky newspaper:
And here is a MUST WATCH video of the “crime” that he was charged with: helping Brian Law disable an attack helicopter with a garden mattock:
Finally, PM Kevin Rudd is holding a “Community Cabinet” in Rocky tonight so keep an eye out for some familiar faces if our TV news cover the protestors as well!
Best wishes to all,
