Brown calls for action on Afghanistan 


A Galaxy poll showing most Australians want our troops brought home from Afghanistan should be  heeded by the Government and Opposition, Greens Leader Bob Brown said today. 

“The growing public feeling in favour of bringing Australia’s defence force personnel home will be  central to this year’s parliamentary debate on Afghanistan,” Senator Brown said in Canberra. 

“This level of opposition is higher than during the Vietnam War,” Senator Brown said.
