Media Statement

For Immediate Release

Staunch Gives Peace a Chance: Matt Robson to Tour!

"Suddenly, peace is a national, and indeed international, issue again," said Julie Fairey, National Spokesperson for Staunch Alliance. "But did it ever really go away?"

Staunch Alliance, the youth and activist wing of the Alliance party, announced today a campus tour by Matt Robson, Alliance MP and Minister for Disarmament.

Robson will be speaking on peace and disarmament issues.

This tour is all the more relevant when military retaliation looks likely in response to the horrific terrorist attacks in New York and Washington. Staunch and the Alliance want to promote discussion on peaceful alternatives.
