Robson Peace Tour Continues!

29th September 2001

The National Give Peace A Chance Tour, organised by Staunch Alliance, hits Wellington and Dunedin this week, giving students their last chance to hear Matt Robson, Alliance MP and Minister of Disarmament, speaking on war, peace, nukes and terrorism.

"Matt's great reception by students in the north has been very encouraging," said Julie Fairey, National Co-Spokesperson for Staunch Alliance, the youth and student wing of the Alliance Party. "As war seems more and more likely it is heartening to see such a strong commitment to peace, from both Matt and students."
