Peace pilgrims enter Shoalwater Bay military training facility

Two people entered the Shoalwater Bay Military Training Area this morning to disrupt the Talisman Sabre training exercises.

The two are Greg Rolles (31yrs), school teacher from Brisbane; and Graham Dunstan (71yrs), retired grey nomad.

There are currently 28,000 Australian and US troops undertaking joint military training in Australia, with a focus on the Shoalwater Bay Military Training Area.  Last week two US aircraft dropped 4 bombs on the Great Barrier Reef when they were unable to land at their planed location.

Pre-prepared statements from the two peace pilgrims point to the effect of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and their desire to act against the Australian & US military alliance.
