Action outside counter-terrorism gabfest
Activists hold alternative action outside counter-terrorism gabfest
"Today Helen Clark addressed the Pacific Island Roundtable on Counter Terrorism 25 activists were outside with a simple clear message for her. If her government wants to work towards a world free of terrorism, she must stop participating and condoning it" said PAW member John Anderson.
"From our troops in Afghanistan to Iraq, to condoning our neighbour in Indonesia who terrorise the people of Acheh and West Papua – we must begin to act against state terrorism."
The activists played a recording of Raed Jarrar’s Iraqi Road Map for Peace at 5:30 as one counter voice to Clark’s talk today. You can find out more here:
