Tony Abbott’s targeted at opening of new memorial

Anzac protest at Pukeahu
“Peace Action Wellington welcomed Tony Abbott to Aotearoa with ‘Warmonger Warmonger! OUT! OUT! OUT! at the opening of the Australian memorial at Pukeahu this morning,” said Peace Action member Valerie Morse
“Peace Action Wellington will not remain silent while genocide against Aboriginal Australians is being committed. We will not be silent while hundred of refugees are tortured in Australian concentration camps. We do not feel any obligation to honour Tony Abbott during the opening of this memorial.”
“While speaking simultaneously about honouring the sacrifice of people who died in dozen of previous wars, he and John Key are committing more troops to fight yet another war for Western dominance in the Middle East.”
“As Anzac day approaches, we encourage people to be critical of the coopting of the centennial in order to wage more war.”
