Green Left Weekly,
Australia's socialist newspaper
Issue #555 September 24, 2003

Green Left Weekly provides news, information, opinion and debate from an
environmental and left perspective.

Featured this week: Protest Bush's visit - troops out of Iraq!
Contrary to corporate media reports, Howard, Downer and other government
ministers have not categorically ruled out sending more Australian
troops to Iraq — including combat soldiers — if the Bush administration
formally requests that Canberra do so. Bush's planned visit to Australia
provides activists with an opportunity to organise mass protests that
demand that the Howard government withdraws all Australian personnel
from Iraq and doesn't give further aid to the brutal and illegal US
occupation.
