‘Bring Troops Home Now’ – Senate Candidate
Newcastle based Senate Candidate BRENDA KELLAWAY says that Australia needs to withdraw forces from Afghanistan immediately.
“ The invasion of Afghanistan by the US and Australia was a big mistake” Ms Kellaway said. “It was just an insane knee jerk reaction to 9/11.”
Ms Kellaway, who is contesting the Australian Elections as a NSW Senate Candidate for the Communist Alliance, is deeply concerned about revelations of atrocities by US forces which have emerged in the so-called War Logs.
“This is not something our people should be associated with” she said. “The policy of the Communist Alliance is to bring the troops home. Not next year or the year after, but right away.”
“In any case the war in Afghanistan is really about oil, not terrorism. The Western powers want to block China from accessing oil from Iran or Central Asia. Australia should strive to keep out of these energy wars. The worlds people want peaceful development not wars of conquest that consume scarce natural resources. It is about time the ordinary people were heard”.
The Communist Alliance is fielding two candidates for the six available Senate seats in the Australian general elections, to be held on August 21.
