Protestors’ pre-emptive strike
The Morning Bulletin 5 Jul 2017
AS thousands of troops yesterday prepared for training in the Talisman Sabre military exercise, another group of people held a small peaceful protest.
“Instead of spending $50m on Talisman Sabre to train for future US wars of aggression, we need to step away from the wars of the US empire and make our own path, one in which we build a peaceful future with our neighbours and address our greatest collective security threat, climate change,” Graeme Dunstan told those at the Independence from the USA Day gathering.
“Consider it a pre-emptive strike for peace in this time of endless wars and escalating militarism.”
The group gathered outside the Western St Army Barracks, Rockhampton.
