Thousands rally around Australia against Israel's wars

ITEM:There were big turn-outs to rallies and marches around Australia today against Israel's war on Lebanon and Palestine. In Sydney 15,000 to 20,000 closed off George Street and marched on the US Consulate. There was a huge police presence, including riot police, mounted police, dog squads and helicopters. Arab communities have not mobilised in this scale for years in this rally organised by 30 community organisations and the Stop The War Coalition. In Melbourne, there were 10,000, in Brisbane 500 and in Canberra 300.
