Michael Moore: at last, some helpful US interference

The Socialist Alliance today welcomed the comment of US filmmaker
Michael Moore that `I hope Australians that see this film will say to
themselves "We need some regime change here in our country".'
The Alliance is showing Moore's box office record-breaking film
Farenheit 9/11 in a series of screenings around the country (see
details below).

Lisa Macdonald, Socialist Alliance co-convener and candidate for the
NSW seat of Reid, said: "Moore's comments are especially welcome when
the Bush administration is engaged in a very crude attempt to exploit
the differences within the ALP over Australia's involvement in the
criminal Iraq war."

The Alliance leader said she was sure that Australians who saw the
devastating footage on the US war on Iraq in Farenheit 9/11 would be
strengthened in their opposition to the war, the alliance with the US
and the Howard government.

"They will also be more determined to see that Labor, which has begun
to backslide on its `troops out by Christmas' commitment, doesn't get
any more week-kneed." Macdonald concluded.
