[Late but worth it: Thanks to Max Watts, Australia, who sent this in.13 August 2010 Stand FastStand Fast’s Graeme Dunstan organised a highly successful speak-out in front ofTownsville’s Lavarack Barracks, one of the Australian Army’s largest bases.There was a good turn out of local supporters, 14 in total including a British veteran ofCyprus, Jenny Stirling from the Greens and David Lowe from the Socialist Alliance. Thespeak-out had a good media response with all local news media was represented.Media included ABC Radio Townsville (12.30 pm Friday news plus a drive timeinterview), extensive coverage WIN and Seven TV news (long, maybe 2 minutesegments) and page 4 of the Townsville Bulletin (see photo).The speak-out did not receive any abuse from troops entering/leaving the barracks andfrom the speak-out Stand Fast has built important contacts with people who are able toget Stand Fast’s message directly to soldiers in one of Australia’s largest garrison towns.
Stand Fast is a group of veterans and former military personnel who oppose thecurrent wars of occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan.MORE:
“A Military Adventure Of Dubious ValueTo Australia Instigated By WarCriminals”
September 09, 2010 By Stephen Fugate via Max Watts, Australia
Thursday afternoon often sees me near the Enoggera Army Base where alongsidethe main road we of the ‘Vigil’ hold posters protesting Australia’s involvement inthe criminal invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Today was a bit different with the appearance before the Army Camp’s main gate withStand Fast who held a Speak Out event that was covered by the media.
 
This is a fairly poignant time as Australian soldiers have recently been droppinglike flies owing to the increase in hostilities where they are operating inAfghanistan.Many of those who have died were Queenslanders.Honour guards, flag-draped caskets and tearful funerals attended by somberpoliticians are becoming all too frequent. And it is all totally unnecessary.
We could stop anytime we wanted rather than ‘finish the job’ and ‘stay the distance’ in amilitary adventure of dubious value to Australia instigated by war criminals againstsovereign non-aggressive nations.I’m reminded of a quote by Mohammed Ali (formerly Cassius Clay) who refused to servewith the US Army in Vietnam as saying “No Vietnamese ever called me Nigger!”
Veterans’ Day Outreach To New YorkNational Guard
From: Alan S, Military Resistance OrganizationTo: Military Resistance NewsletterSent: November 11, 2010Subject: Veterans Day Outreach11/11/10 OUTREACH:WHAT BETTER DAY TO HEAR “NO SOLDIER LIKES WAR” THAN THIS?What better day for troop outreach than Veterans Day? Since I couldn’t answer thequestion at home I made my way to commuter terminals looking for soldiers to talk to.The troops were out and my first stop found 2 National Guard privates. One knew meand took a contact card [see below] saying he couldn’t accept a handout (MilitaryResistance Newsletter, contact card, GI Rights Pamphlet and double sided MilitaryResistance/IVAW info).The other, took the handout paying close attention to my description of our activities thenfolding the zip locked handout into squares that fit conveniently into a trouser pocket.The inconsistency of those unable to take and those taking handouts continues tointrigue me.Another encounter wasn’t at a transportation terminal but a department store where amember of the 82nd Airborne was shopping. Surprised to be approached, he listenedand took a handout, thanking me.The next encounter was with a private and sergeant standing guard at a terminalentrance. The private, having recognized me from New York City armory outreaches,wanted to know why there weren’t any cookies at the 11/5 Armory outreach.
