Two events in Sydney on July 11 will provide an opportunity to offer solidarity to peace and democracy activists in Asia.
At 4.30pm, at the Sydney Town Hall steps, there will be a solidarity protest with Aceh, demanding Indonesian troops withdraw from the province and the Australian government ends its military ties with Indonesia. The action is organised jointly by Action in Solidarity with Asia and the Pacific (ASAP) and the Aceh-Australia Association.
At 7pm at Trades Hall in Goulburn Street, an ASAP-organised forum titled "Asia under fire" will hear "voices for peace" from Burma, Aceh and Korea.
