NEWCASTLE — More than 30 people attended a speak-out to express solidarity with the Pine Gap Four at the Hamilton's Clocktower on May 25. One of the Pine Gap Four, Donna Mulhearn, is a well-known peace activist in the Hunter region. She was among those arrested after successfully carrying out a "citizens' inspection" of Pine Gap on December 9, 2005. Their trial goes to court shortly.
The protest, organised by the Socialist Alliance and supported by Kindred Spirits, green and peace groups, also protested against the Talisman Sabre war games commencing in June in Queensland.
