what are politicians?
man .. is john howard (pm of aust) an idiot or what? around 400K protesters
turned out this weekend in australia (250K in sydney
, 100K in adelaide, 100K in brisbane) to protest against war
. and ffs, those are police estimates, not some numbers made up by the protest organisers! and then this joke of a politician turns around and says that we won't be swayed by public opinion
! look, you're a politician, how can you not be swayed by public opinion. public opinion is what got you that fucking job in the first place. for once, i agree with Simon Crean
on this (and only this one time.)
anyway, for more organised war protests in australia, head over to antibases.org
. apparently, if war does break out, you should gather at 5pm at Sydney Town Hall. I don't know what you would do there, maybe have a picnic or something.
You can reply to me about this on Twitter:
