Petition to Prime Minister Julia Gillard

05/10/2012

Dear Prime Minister,

On-going attacks on NATO troops have destroyed what passed for a strategy in Afghanistan. It is clear that there is no prospect of an ‘orderly handover,’ there never was and never will be. All indications are that the vast majority of Afghans want NATO troops to leave their country and soon. The occupation of Afghanistan is the main cause of violence in that country.

It is unforgiveable to keep or send troops to Afghanistan for another two years in this pointless war. On current figures it would lead to the death of many more soldiers, the wounding of hundreds more and the death of uncounted Afghan civilians. You must recognise that every single casualty is a human tragedy for which those controlling the war are ultimately responsible. (Prime Minister Gillard has stubbornly stuck with the NATO script: training forces out in 2014, but special forces to stay indefinitely!)

We urge you to listen to the voice of the Australian people and end the futile killing by bringing all the troops home by Christmas.

10 reasons why the troops should all come home by Christmas…
