Featured this week: Stop the Slaughter! Bring the troops home now!

On March 20, Australian fighter planes assisted in a US air strike on
Baghdad, marking the beginning of the US-Australian war against the
Iraqi people. We need to exercise the power of collective action if we
are going to stop this war. Mass street marches, student strikes and
occupations, workers' strikes, union bans on the movement of military
supplies or on any companies associated with the war drive, and other
forms of mass action can show that we will not allow murder in our name.
