protests, by Peter Biyle." 

My point in that post
(<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GreenLeft_discussion/message/3069>)
on the Green Left discussion list was not that defending the
PBS was wrong in general but that counterposing it as a more
working class issue than opposition to the war in Iraq, the
main issue taken up by the anti-Bash protests last month in
Australia was sectarian. 

But Marxism List members can read the Socialist Party
article and judge for themselves:
