Protest at Liberal Party policy launch



SYDNEY - Ansett workers, anti-nuclear reactor campaigners and Socialist Alliance members were joined by 80 refugee rights activists at a demonstration outside the Liberal Party's election launch on October 28. Liberal loyalists were forced to run a gauntlet of jeers and chants condemning the government's wars against Afghanistan, refugees and workers. Some of the refugees brought photos of family members had drowned when a boat recently sank en route to Australia.
