Shoalwater Bay at risk from war games
-------------------------------------

June 17-24 a Peace Convergence will see thousands of people meet in the
seaside town of Yeppoon, (Australia) to oppose joint U.S.-Australian war
games on the Great Barrier Reef and surrounds. Over 20,000 U.S. troops
and about 12,000 Australian troops have been involved in Operation
Talisman Sabre 07 since May. The convergence will mark the start of the
live firing exercise at Shoalwater Bay Military Training Area.

Opponents to the games say they threaten world heritage values including
Ramsar listed wetlands, endangered species including dugongs, green
turtles and whales, and local water supply. They cite the presence of
nuclear powered vessels, nuclear weapons, banned munitions like depleted
uranium and other military toxins as risk factors. They maintain that the
war games, the biggest U.S. military presence in Australia since WW2,
indicates increasing collaboration with the rogue Bush administration and
its illegitimate and unpopular wars.

In June the International Whaling Commission condemned the U.S. navy use of sonar in the TS07 games as a risk to migrating whales who traverse the Great Barrier Reef. The U.S. Centre for Biological Diversity have launched a lawsuit against the U.S. navy over their use of sonar in Hawaii.

The Peace Convergence will run for a week from June 18-24. Events include public meetings, concerts, street rallies, direct action and theatre actions.

These interviews with the local Byfield/Yeppoon community were conducted in July 2006.
