ANTIWAR: Wellington peace camp 'an expression of unity'

in

peacecamp

The Peace camps established outside the US and Australian Embassies on Friday, which maintained a weekend long vigil of protest against the war on the Iraqi people, has now finished. Two arrests have been reported.

The camp was called a great success as discussion was generated amongst a diverse range of peace activists. The US Embassy has witnessed displays of grief and outrage over the past few months with the escalation of the war - this action is a further example of opposition to the conflict.

Elsewhere in the country there were rallies and 'die-ins' - people from Hamilton, Christchurch and Dunedin all came out to demonstrate their continued opposition to the invasion of Iraq.
